Huh? What aircraft?

WE'RE UNDER ATTACK!

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

WHY DIDN'T YOU WARN US ABOUT THE APPROACHING ENEMY AIRCRAFT?

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

EH? WHO'S THAT? SPEAK UP!

I CAN'T SEE OR HEAR A THING!

A DAMAGED RCT (RADAR CONTROL TERMINAL) OR DAMAGED REMOTE DATA CABLES MEAN YOUR SENTINEL IS BLIND TO ENEMY AIRCRAFT.

LISTEN TO THIS PM TO KEEP YOUR SENTINEL'S HEARING KEEN ...

Carelessness during stowage of the RCT for movement or storage costs Sentinel units big bucks every year.

ANY TIME YOU'RE NOT OPERATING THE SENTINEL, KEEP THE RCT IN ITS LOCKED, PADDED STORAGE COMPARTMENT.

Store RCT in locked compartment

Make sure the two latches for the compartment's access cover are secured. If the cover latches aren't latched, the cover bounces around during travel and damages the screen. During storage, a loose cover may not seal out water and dirt.

IF YOU DISCONNECT THE RCT CABLE FOR STORAGE, INSTALL THE PROTECTIVE CAP ON THE RCT CONNECTOR TO SAFEGUARD CONNECTOR PINS.

Not being locked into the radar properly. If the cable is only pushed onto the radar connector and not locked on, the cable falls off and is stepped on and damaged. After you fit the cable connector in place, turn the sleeve to lock it in.

Disconnect before travel

Forgetting to disconnect the cable before driving away in the HMMWV. That yanks the cable apart. Check that the cable has been unhooked and stored before driving off.

Covering cable in trench with rocks. A vehicle drives over the trench and the rocks puncture the cable. Cover the cable with dirt, not rocks.

YEOW! THAT HURTS!

Secure with straps

Not stowing the cable properly for storage or travel. A loose cable drags along the ground and is torn apart. For travel or storage, wind the cable up on its reel and then secure it with the reel straps.
