National Technical Systems’ New Jersey Location Offers Expanded EMI Testing
High-level electromagnetic interference testing for electronics and avionics simulates high intensity radar sweeps for commercial and military testing. At NTS’ laboratory in Tinton Falls, NJ, capabilities now exceed 200 V/m.
Tinton Falls, NJ (PRWeb) October 20, 2008 -- National Technical Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: NTSC) (NTS), a leading provider of engineering services, announced today that their Tinton Falls, NJ laboratory is now equipped to offer high-level EMI testing for electronics and avionics.
The new capability simulates high intensity radar sweeps encountered in hostile combat areas and commercially when crossing radar beams on final approach to an airport. The expansion includes the installation of a new shielded room, sophisticated signal generators, RF power amplifiers and antennas. The complete system will now generate field levels exceeding 200 V/m throughout the specified frequency ranges. Experienced NTS technical staff members conduct the testing programs and provide engineering support.
The range of equipment that can be tested to the MIL-STD 461A/F and RTCA DO-160B/F specifications include shipboard equipment, ground-based equipment, navigation and control systems, engines and power systems, airborne weapon platforms and communication systems for aircraft, unmanned airborne vehicles, missiles and smart munitions.
Because the electronics are typically operational during the test, NTS also provides aircraft electrical power sources (shipboard, airborne, and ground power), engine exhaust systems, thermal monitoring systems and other pertinent test accessories. The new electrically-shielded room measures 24’ x 32’ x 20’ with doublewide doors to allow access for large systems.
“We are pleased to be able to offer these expanded services to both commercial and military organizations here on the East coast.” stated Richard Gaynor, General Manager of the Tinton Falls facility. “The addition of the 200 V/m capabilities, as well as the recent addition of Explosive Atmosphere capability, is further proof of our dedication to expanding our offerings to meet the needs of our client base. We look forward to additional facility and equipment expansions in the near future.”
