Abstract:

Limits currently used by military specifications for control of Electromagnetic interference and susceptibility are uniformly based on tests which were conducted many years ago on aircraft voice communication equipment in typical aircraft installations, and do not necessarily relate to present requirements of space systems. This paper examines the development of interference and susceptibility limits in various military specifications indicating the technique by which the limits were derived, the rationale for such derivation, and the changes in various limits with time since their original formulation. It also discusses certain inconsistencies within and between the limits of the various specifications. The evaluation of the status of this field practically dictates that a study should be initiated to realistically formulate a theoretically and empirically valid set of interference and susceptibility limits to fit the needs of modern, complex systems in crowded, electromagnetic environments.
