Two aspects of the current electromagnetic EM environment having great significance for NATO systems are a electromagnetic interference EM arising from both natural and man-made sources b electromagnetic compatibility EMC, i.e. the ability of an EM system to function as specified without being susceptible to EMI, and without itself generating excessive EMI which would cause other systems to malfunction. The Lecture Series will first set EMC in a NATO operational context, Major EMI generation mechanisms will then be reviewed and their characteristics outlined. The manner in which EMI energy couples into EM systems will be discussed, together with the analysis and modeling tools available to assist in computing such interactions. Modern EMC testing methods and environments will then be examined and their limitations indicated. The relationship between NATO and civilian EMC requirements will be examined in the light of the European Community EMC Directive. Consideration will also be given to the problems of spectrum management and conservation as they affect systems intentionally radiating EM energy, e.g. radio, radar, etc.
