Abstract
MIL-E-6051, MIL-STD-461 AND MIL-STD-462 ARE ADDRESSED FOR UPDATING CURRENT EMI/EMC TEST METHODS AND EQUIPMENT. THE PROBLEMS WITH THE USE OF EACH OF THE SPECIFICATIONS FOR THE CURRENT STATE-OF-THETECHNOLOGY ARE IDENTIFIED AND SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEMS ARE PROPOSED. MIL-E-6051 SOLUTIONS ARE TO DEVELOP METHODOLOGIES AND ANALYSES THAT REDUCE SYSTEM LEVEL TESTS AND DEVELOP METHODOLOGIES THAT DEFINE THE EM ENVIRONMENT AND ASSESS SYSTEM SUSCEPTIBILITY TO THE ENVIRONMENT WHILE DECREASING EVALUATION TIME AND IMPROVING CONFIDENCE IN THE RESULTS. MIL-STD-461 SOLUTION IS TO DEFINE MODIFICATIONS AND INSTRUMENTATION THAT WILL MAKE THE STANDARD APPLICABLE TO CURRENT AND NEAR-FUTURE OPERATIONAL EQUIPMENT AND SYSTEMS. MIL-STD-462 SOLUTIONS ARE TO DEFINE INSTRUMENTATION FOR PERFORMING EMISSION MEASUREMENTS ON A "BAND" BASIS THEREBY REDUCING TEST TIME AND IMPROVING TEST ACCURACY. ALSO, TO DEVELOP METHODOLOGY AND DEFINE INSTRUMENTATION FOR REDUCING OR ELIMINATING THE NEED FOR HIGH LEVEL RADIATED SUSCEPTIBILITY TESTS WHICH REDUCES COSTS FOR SUSCEPTIBILITY EVALUATIONS AND RAISES CONFIDENCE IN TEST RESULTS. PHASE II FOLLOW-ON WOULD RESULT IN UPDATING EMI/EMC STANDARDS TO INCLUDE NEW METHODOLOGIES, PARAMETERS AND LIMITS. ALSO, PHASE II WOULD DEFINE THE NEW OR IMPROVED INSTRUMENTATION REQUIRED TO PERFORM EVALUATIONS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE UPDATED SPECIFICATIONS.
