Characterization of an Outdoor Ambient Radio Frequency Environment
U.S. Army Electronic Proving Ground Fort Huachuca United States
This TOP provides procedures to characterize an ambient radio frequency RF environment sometimes referred to as radio frequency noise prior to testing of a specific system under test SUT. With this characterization, locations can be selected to avoid RF interference, providing optimal test conditions for the given SUT. This procedure requires calibrated equipment to generate accurate results, allowing for comparisons between test locations, and selection of the best location for a given test.
