ARMY TEST AND EVALUATION COMMAND ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND MD
A methodology is given for determining whether electromagnetic radiation of sufficient strength to cause performance degradation to the test item exists at the test item location. The results of an electromagnetic radiation effects test are used to identify the radio frequencies and electromagnetic radiation levels to which the test item is susceptible. Further, using a test bed, comparisons are made with the representative signal levels to determine if the levels at which the test item suffers performance degradation would occur in the field. Signal transmission characteristics are developed for each radiation source to provide recommended minimum separation criteria.
