Abstract:

Because of the significant differences in transient susceptibility, the use of digital electronics in flight critical systems, and the reduced shielding effects of composite materials, there is a definite need to define design practices which will minimize electromagnetic susceptibility, to investigate the operational environment, and to develop appropriate testing methods for flight critical systems. A major part of this report describes design practices which will lead to reduced electromagnetic susceptibility of avionics systems in high energy fields. A second part describes the level of emission that can be anticipated from generic digital devices. It is assumed that as data processing equipment becomes an ever larger part of the avionics package, the construction methods of the data processing industry will increasingly carry out into aircraft. These portions of the report should, therefore, be of particular interest to avionics engineers and designers. This report includes an extensive bibliography on electromagnetic compatibility and avionics issues.
