Abstract:

Investigations were conducted regarding the adequacy of RFI specification MIL-I-16910A to which the Bureau of Yards and Docks must currently adhere Phase II and the suitability of the instrumentation program currently in force Phase III. A specification objective applicable to the Bureaus responsibilities with respect to the control of electromagnetic interference EMI was arrived at. Recommendations were made concerning permissible interference limits on non-military frequencies, limits for magnetic field strength, a method for measuring conducted interference along electrical wires, a simplified measurement procedure, and the acquisition of Naval vehicles. The instrumentation phase evaluated typical commercial EMI measuring instruments as to their adequacy in fulfilling the Bureaus responsibilities in the detection and measurement of interference. An investigation was conducted regarding the extent and type of instrumentation which would be compatible with the intensity of interference problems confronting BuDocks. A suggested instrumentation program is presented along with desirable instrument characteristics. Author
