THE AN/GLQ-14 IS EQUIPED WITH A SPECIAL PURPOSE CRANE/AUGER FOR LOADING/UNLOADING AND INSTALLING THE ANTENNA. THE ANTENNA IS CARRIED ON A FLATBED SEMI-TRAILOR. A THIRD FLATBED SEMI-TRAILOR IS USED TO CARRY THE MEP-012A GENERATOR. THE POWER FOR OPERATION OF THE AN/GLQ-14 MAY BE SUPPLIED BY WORLDWIDE COMMERCIAL POWER OR STANDARD ARMY POWER SOURCES (GENERATORS). B. CAPABILITIES: THE TECHNICAL CAPABILITIES OF THE SYSTEM IS CLASSIFIED. THE AN/GLQ-14 OPERATES AS PART OF THE AN/TLQ-33 COUNTERMEASURES SYSTEM. IT IS CAPABLE OF BEING OPERATED, STORED, AND TRANSPORTED IN HOT, BASIC, AND COLD CLIMATS, AS DEFINED IN AR 70-38. IT WILL FUNCTION WITHOUT DEGRADATION UP TO 7,000 FEET ABOVE SEA LEVLE AND WILL WITHSTAND AND OPERATE IN SURFACE WIND GUSTS OF UP TO 90 MPH. C. EMPLOYMENT: EMPLOYMENT OF THE SYSTEM IS CLASSIFIED. D. BASIS OF ISSUE: ONE PER HIGH POWER SECTION, EW COMPANY (AHFEWS). E. POWER REQUIREMENTS: GENERATOR POWER REQUIRED IS 4160 VAC, 750KW, 3 PHASE, 60HZ FOR THE AMPLIFIER AND 208 VAC, 100KW, 3 PHASE, 60HZ FOR THE TRANSMITTER. THE DIRECTOR REQUIRES 308V AC, 60KW, 3 PHASE, 50HZ (SHELTER) AND 460 VAC, 60A, 3 PHASE (ECU). THESE GENERATOR POWER REQUIREMENTS ARE SATISFIED BY ONE PU-495B/G 100KW, ONE PU-650B/G 60KW, AND ONE MEP-012A 750KW GENERATOR.
