Abstract:

More and more electronic systems are being added to Naval ships. Many of these systems radiate or receive electromagnetic EM energy. They are all vital parts of a ship and it is important that each functions properly if the ship is to accomplish its assortment of missions. However, it is becoming increasingly difficult to place these systems on board a ship without their EM radiation interfering with each other. This thesis analyzes the EM design problem. It concludes that a central clearing house for electromagnetic information is needed which would maintain an up-to-date data base on electromagnetic problems and solutions, that shipboard personnel need to be more aware of the EMC problem, and suggests that more frequent updates of model studies and military standards be made.
