Scope. MIL-HDBK-1195 establishes specific criteria for the design
and construction of shielded enclosures. The Design Manual 12.1, Electronic
Facilities Engineering, establishes the general criteria for the design of
Electronic Facilities. The Design Manual 12.02, High Altitude Electromagnetic
Pulse Protection for Ground-Based Facilities, establishes the general criteria
for protection of ground base facilities from high altitude electromagnetic

Responsibilities. The design and construction of Navy shielded
enclosures require close coordination between the designer and other parties.
Responsibilities involved in design stages are as follows:
Chief of Naval Operations. The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) is
the Director of Naval Communications, who sponsors and supports Naval
communication facilities through the Naval Telecommunications Command and
other commands. The CNO, as the user, states the needs of the operating
forces to the producer organizations. Such needs can include operating and
supporting facilities, research and development, improved equipment, new
equipment, spare and repair parts, consumable, training maintenance, personnel
facilities, and any other requirements of the user. In many instances, the
CNO is responsible for supporting the Defense Communication Agency (DCA),
which is the sponsor for the nation's world wide Defense Communication System
(DCS). Within the Chief of Naval Operations, electronic engineering
capabilities are concentrated in the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command
(SPAWARSYSCOM), while facility design and construction capabilities are
assigned to the Naval Facilities (NAVFAC) Engineering Command. Specific
responsibilities of these commands are assigned as follows:
Commander Space and Naval Warfare System Command (COMSPAWARSYSCOM)
is responsible for:
a) Providing guidance and direction in electronics matters from
project inception to completion.
b) Providing electronic technical support both within and outside
the Chief of Naval Operations.
c) Obtaining sponsor statements of operational requirements and
translating them into statement of resource requirements.
d) Designing and/or selecting electronic systems, equipment and
ancillary devices. Initiating procurement and distribution action for these
items and installing equipment. On a military construction (MILCON)
project, project execution for such equipment installation will be determined
in conjunction with NAVFAC.
