The purpose of this study was to investigate and develop minimal environmental and electromagnetic interference testing requirements that would insure normal survivability aboard ship for a fixed head mass storage disk system. These environmental and electromagnetic interference specifications are intended for units that will be used only in non-tactical applications. Minimal environmental and electromagnetic interference test requirements were developed. Two different manufacturers of commercially ruggedized fixed disk storage units lent the Navy their units for the purpose of evaluating the environmental and electromagnetic test requirements. These units were tested at a testing facility and the results are included in this report. The test results indicate that these proposed environmental and electromagnetic interference test requirements can be satisfied but that not all commercially ruggedized fixed head disk storage units can satisfy them.
