  Desert Lightning News Digital Edition - July 24, 2020
Hello everyone, and welcome to the July 24th edition of Nellis AFB/Creech AFB Desert Lightning News! As part of technology tests expected to be rolled out at other military installations in the future, Nellis AFB is serving as a testing ground for a new gate security system, the Pre-emplaced Electric Vehicle Stopper. It will be interesting to see reports on the outcome if someone tries to bypass this system – when activated, two remotely controlled arms pop up, make contact with the bottom of the vehicle and send an electronic pulse to disable the vehicle’s electrical system. (Better than having pop-up bollards pulverize the bottom of your car?)  Click on the link below to check out the full story, along with much more news in your free online copy of Desert Lightning News, viewable on your computer or mobile device.
Here are some more highlights from this week’s issue:
All this and much more, in this week’s edition of Desert Lightning News!
