Cape Canaveral Space Force Station
8-koi’s wholly-owned subsidiary, CDE, was tasked with the structural and electrical engineering design for the new Lightning Protection System (LPS). The team provided the complete electrical design for the Lightning Protection System (LPS) and beacon lights, including power, grounding and bonding per all code and regulatory requirements. The team of engineers performed transient load analysis for the catenary LPS and provided the criteria to design the structural steel tower and fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) mast on top of the tower. The tower and FRP mast were designed to support dead loads, live loads, thermal loads, splash pressures from the launch vehicle, hurricane wind loads, as well as all loads imposed on the tower and mast from the catenary system itself. Construction support for this project included submittal reviews, RFI, field observations, test result verifications, FRP mast manufacturing inspection and record drawings.
