Covering electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) characteristics of equipment and systems, MIL-STD-461 testing ensures that products meet the stringent requirements for products used in rugged military environments.
Our MIL-STD-461 services are designed to provide thorough and time-effective defense validation, helping you perform Urgent Operational Requirement (UOR) testing in a short period.
Our testing covers:
- Radiated Immunity / Susceptibility
- Radiated Emissions
- Conducted Immunity / Susceptibility
- Conducted Emissions
- Bulk Current Injection
DEF STAN 59-411 Testing
DEF STAN 59-411 and DEF STAN 61-5 testing covers major EMC categories for land, air and sea systems used in the UK.
Outlining electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements for a variety of systems and assemblies, DEF STAN 59-411 testing prepares products for use in extreme situations. We perform testing for man worn portables, line replacement units and subsystems and support equipment, covering:
- Conducted Emissions
- Conducted susceptibility
- Radiated Emissions
- Radiated susceptibility
- Electrostatic discharge (ESD)
We also work with customers and the Ministry of Defense to develop testing packages that cover both defense and commercial requirements with a single test program, including:
- EMC testing
- CE Marking
- E Marking
- RADHAZ Testing
- Direct Driver Control (DDC)
- HERO testing
- Immunity Integrity Testing
Military EMC Vehicle Chamber
Our facilities include a heavy vehicle semi-anechoic chamber (HVSAC) with a 18m x 14m working volume and capacity for 70 ton floor loading. This was originally built to test the Challenger Main Battle tank, and has recently been used for the new generation of naval systems and British army vehicles including the Mastiff and Husky.
