This standard establishes design standards for grounding, bonding, shielding and lightning protection for all classes of systems and facilities at KSC. This standard shall be invoked by KSC projects in support of NASA programs, program constituent elements, or the KSC Institution. As a standard it is applicable to design activities in both development and sustainment project phases. It is not the intent of this document to require that all existing facilities at KSC be modified to meet the requirements contained herein. Existing facilities should be considered on an individual basis when major modifications are taking place. This standard is broken into three separate areas of concern: (1) grounding and bonding, (2) lightning protection and (3) surge protection. Where appropriate, requirements for all have been combined.
