Abstract:

The war on terrorism has been a major driving factor for warfighter use of commercial off-the-shelf COTS items. Multiple COTS products have been introduced in the field that have been tested to industry standards, immunity testing, rather than to Department of Defense DoD military standardsa subset for Electromagnetic Environmental Effects E3 testing called Radiated Susceptibility RS 103 testing, and External Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Environment External RF EME testing. The DoD needs to determine the minimum acceptable test for radiated susceptibility RSImmunity in order to determine the risk, if any, to the operators using these products in the field. Many of the COTS products that have been introduced for DoD use were purportedly assessed to a military specification while being tested to an industry test. This thesis assesses the difference between DoD and industry RSImmunity testing to determine the worst-case test scenario for ground systems.
