Abstract:

The increasing severity of military electromagnetic environments and the potentially adverse effects of these environments on performance of air- launched ordnance systems have reached the point where they pose a threat to successful deployment of air-launched ordnance systems. To counter this threat, the U.S. Air Force has developed an Electromagnetic Radiation EMR Hardness Program to ensure that adequate EMR hardening measures are incorporated into the design, development, and production of future systems to protect them from EMR operational environments. This handbook provides guidance for establishing, implementing, and managing an effective EMR hardness program throughout the life cycle of an air-launched ordnance system. EMR hardness is one of several disciplines concerned with the detrimental effects of electromagnetic environments. While this handbook is directed specifically to EMR hardness, the program established should be coordinated and consolidated with all other electromagnetic effects disciplines invoked on the system to provide efficient and cost effective solutions to electromagnetic effects problems.
