    Jaxon's HM/HS work includes: • Full restoration (back to as-built) • Scheduled PMIs and repairs • Pre-and-Post work field testing to evaluate the HM/HS effort • Identification of aging parts • Replacement and repairs • HEMP Configuration Control
  4. DESIGN
    DESIGN
    4
    Jaxon engineers have designed (and built) numerous new HEMP solutions. The components needed to harden a site are rarely items that can be purchased OTC. This unit in England is an Special Protective Measures (SPM) treatment designed by us and built by British tradesmen.
  5. DOCUMENTATION
    DOCUMENTATION

    This work for all customers includes: - Test Plans and Reports - Technical Manuals - Engineering Drawings & Specs - Trade Studies & Design Options - Safety, QA and QC Plans - Maintenance Plans - Cert Packages, and many others
  6. CERTIFICATION
    CERTIFICATION
    6
    The ultimate challenge for any Program Office is to demonstrate to Management and Command Authorities that their Site and Mission are Certified as a HEMP Survivable asset. Jaxon provides the technical data and documentation needed to apply for Certification.
These are the six main core competencies of Jaxon's EMP experience and expertice.  All are important and very critical.   One of them, Testing, is the heartbeat of any successful program.  In recent years Jaxon has developed multiple sets of  'Next Generation' HEMP test equipment.  This equipment meets Mil Std 188-125 requirements to degrees never before achieved.   Jaxon's EMP pulsers fire thousands of times without upset or the need to recalibrate.   This directly helps Site Personnel and Management by accellerating the test process and minimizing the associated down time to test a site and its mission.
 
Jaxon engineers have ruggedized our test suites to minimize the damage caused by normal wear and tear from constant shipping & transport so that we can always be ready support our Military counterparts around the globe.
POWER GRID
HEMP HARDENING
TECHNICAL CHALLENGE
  1. MAN INDUCED (NUCLEAR) HEMP
    MAN INDUCED (NUCLEAR) HEMP
    1
    The very same nuclear-induced EM environments that Jaxon is solving for the US government apply to our nation's power grid. (Nuclear induced) EMP has 3 very devastating components [E1, E2 and E3], each with a different time domain, profile and electrical content. All are critical to Generation and Distribution.
  2. NATURE INDUCED (SOLAR EM-E3) HEMP
    NATURE INDUCED (SOLAR EM-E3) HEMP
    2
    The Earth's surface is hit with 'routine' levels of Solar EMP everyday. This E3 form of energy couples to long copper lines and (if not grounded out) would travel coast to coast. EM energy from big solar storms could cause serious damage to the Grid & to electronics in our homes, businesses, and our country.

    JAXON is presently working to evaluate new designs, test legacy hardware, and help improve Grid resiliency. Jaxon also provides pro bono Advisory Board support to a Non-Profit 501c3 who is developing plans for HEMP hardening the Grid at the state level.
  3. TESTIMONIES 
BEFORE STATE LEGISLATURE(S)
    TESTIMONIES BEFORE STATE LEGISLATURE(S)

    Jaxon also provides pro bono support to the FBI's InfraGuard HEMP Special Interest Group (SIG). Link to our CEO's (public record) testimony to: A - Colorado Legislature House Transportation and Energy Comm. B - Maine Senate, Energy, Utilities, and Technology Joint Committee
Question:  
A State Senator recently asked in Committee "If we harden our state's Electrical Grid against the effects of Solar GMD, will that take care of the HEMP threat?" 
 
Answer from our CEO:   "Unfortunately, it does not." 
 
Jaxon is working with key national leaders in the private and political sector(s) to transition the technology from 25-30 years of lessons learned in the Department of Defense to our nation's commercial sector to accellerate efforts associated with power grid hardening.  
 
Addressing Solar E3/GMD by itself and its effect on transformers (for example), does not negate the need to evaluate, test and upgrade the other Generation and Distribution equipment exposed to E1 and E2 environs on control and SCADA devices.  Technically, there are some differences between nuclear E3 and Solar E3 environs, but many of the survivability and hardening treatments are similar.  
 
The power grid has some natural resiliency.  Jaxon is just beginning to work with several Power Companies and their suppliers to enhance system resiliency, improve survivability, and reduce the risk to their equipment and the US population.
ROPE ACCESS
  1. SPRAT (US) & IRATA (EU) TRAINING
    SPRAT (US) & IRATA (EU) TRAINING
    1
    Jaxon's Techs are SPRAT and IRATA Certified for work in US & Europe. Work includes High Angle Rescue, Tower Climbing, Confined Space, Fall Protection & Prevention, Aircraft Warning Light Replacement. Jaxon's technicians are qualified for Wind Gen Blade Inspections, as well. Training is constant and tedious.
  2. NON-HARDNESS APPLICATIONS
    NON-HARDNESS APPLICATIONS
    2
    Jaxon's rope access technicians routinely support site maintenance by repairing or replacing aircraft warning lights on towers, roof safety anchors, public address systems, worn electrical wiring, lightning protection, and many other hardware items not related to nuclear hardening.
  3. PDM, MDM and EDLM ACTIVITY
    PDM, MDM and EDLM ACTIVITY
    3
    Jaxon rope access professionals have spent thousands of hours 'on-rope' performing Mobile Depot Maintenance (MDM), Programmed Depot Maintenance (PDM) and Emergency Depot Level Maintenance (EDLM) activities for the USAF on critical assets around the world. The logistics for MDM, PDM and EDLM CONUS and OCONUS work is very challenging.
      
Not all Mission Critical Equipment (MCE) is located nicely at eye level on a ground floor.  Sometimes that equipment is located in difficult to access or potentially dangerous locations.
 
Jaxon’s team of professional Rope Access Technicians have logged thousands of hours of installation, maintenance, repair and replacement in some of the worst environments in the world.  Their safety record is spotless.  Jaxon’s experience is unmatched, as they have become the nation’s Center of Excellence to the Industrial Access community.  Our guys specialize in Rope Access Solutions, High Angle, Industrial Fall Protection, and Confined Space Access.
 
 Jaxon uses state-of-the-art rope access, confined space, and mechanical delivery systems to support efficient and timely execution of task orders to reduce otherwise associated cost and scheduled risk to the client. To solve difficult and challenging work access locations, conventional wisdom usually involved renting expensive and large equipment.   Often space restrictions or difficult to get to locations make a ground approach impractical.  Jaxon’s security cleared rope access specialists solve customer escorting and site access dilemmas at no additional cost to the government.
   
CORROSION CONTROL
  1. HARDNESS MAINTENANCE & SURVEILLANCE
    HARDNESS MAINTENANCE & SURVEILLANCE
    1
    A significant amount of our in-field sustainment work is dedicated to performing HEMP hardness maintenance and surveillance for the US Government. Without addressing corrosion at the right times, a very expensive HEMP shield will look like this in a very short period of time.
  2. STATE-OF-THE-ART SURFACE TREATMENTS
    STATE-OF-THE-ART SURFACE TREATMENTS
    2
    Jaxon has pioneered the use of some very aggressive corrosion control surface treatments in the HEMP industry. Our target is to build Mil Std hardened structures with a 30 year design life, even if deployed in harsh & corrosive environments.
  3. REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT
    REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT

Our last annual goal was "Jaxon Gives Back 400" which meant that (collectively) our folks donated in excess of 400 hours of community service to assist families in need in the Colorado Springs community.  This is just one way of putting legs behind our Mission of being "Driven to Serve".
  1. Wounded Warrior Program Support
    Wounded Warrior Program Support
    Jaxon is proud to work beside and serve our active military at critical locations around the globe. In addition to trying to hire Veterans, it is certainly our honor to provide monthly support to the Wounded Warrior Project to underwrite a wonderful organization that all American families should consider helping.
  2. Colorado Springs Fire Recovery
    Colorado Springs Fire Recovery
    Colorado Springs experienced two major forest fires in recent years. The devastation from both of these fires was extensive. Many families lost their homes and all possessions. It was with mixed emotions that our team often worked for hours with the homeowners to recover only a handful of personal family treasures.
  3. Springs Rescue Mission
    Springs Rescue Mission
    This past year Jaxon has partnered with a local Non-Profit Ministry to help recovering individuals transition back into the work force. Those we have hired from the Mission have been incredible success stories and we are very proud to have every one of them as key contributors to our staff.
  4. Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado
    Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado
    Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC) is a Non-Profit local organization that recruits volunteers to repair trails and campsites throughout the region. Jaxon is honored to provide assistance to this organization since most of our families have small children and are avid hikers, climbers, fishermen and campers.
  5. Habitat for Humanity
    Habitat for Humanity
    Colorado Springs has its own percentage of local families who are in need of homes, protection and security. Jaxon is very pleased to be able to assist local HFH chapters with renovating and landscaping local homes to be used for families in need.
  6. Care and Share
    Care and Share
    Last year a large number of our staff supported the packing and distribution of food to local families. Care and Share here in Colorado Springs is a very excellent Non-Profit that we are proud to support any time of the year. Care and Share is one of those very rewarding programs that everyone loves to support.
