Radio frequency energy can cause hazardous situations to arise in relation to personnel (HERP), fuel (HERF) and ordnance (HERO) Radio and radar transmitting antennas will cause RADHAZ, although other potential sources include radio and radar transmitting equipment and RF cables. Other equipment containing RF generators such as lasers and high frequency welders may also pose a RADHAZ.
RADHAZ can arise in the following ways:
Personnel can be harmed by the heating effects of absorbed RF radiation. Indirect effects such as shocks or surface burns can arise from contact with metallic objects excited by RF radiation.
Combustible materials such as fuels may be ignited by the sparking from RF excited metallic objects.
Explosive material (or propellants) can be ignited or detonated by either the sparking between metallic contacts or by the induction of currents into the firing circuits of Electrically Initiated Explosive Devices (EEDs).
In each case RADHAZ will need to be assessed and control measures and procedures employed. RADHAZ assessment may include computer modelling to determine the RADHAZ areas around antennas.
Assessments are made against the appropriate RADHAZ standards and in consideration of several RADHAZ control measures. Control measures include the use of cutouts, sector blanking, procedures and warning signs.
