A practical realisation of Electromagnetic ImmunityCompatibility EMIEMC testing of ordnance weapons with electrical initiation according to compliance standards is described. The Area Denial Weapon System ADWS, which is electrically initiated and electronically controlled, was exposed to electromagnetic interference of a known intensity in an anechioic chamber by injection of induced current, in accordance with the requirements of the USA MIL-STD-461E standard 1 and of the UKs Ordnance Board Pillar Proceeding P101 Issue 2 2. Compliance of ADWS was confirmed. This report describes the test plan, procedures and results.
