High-Level Electromagnetic Interference Testing For Electronics and AvionicsApril 25, 2018
NTS high-level EMI testing simulates high intensity radar sweeps encountered in hostile combat areas and commercially when crossing radar beams on final approach to an airport. A number of NTS locations, including testing labs in Massachusetts, California, and Texas are equipped for EMI testing with walk-in 7,000 cubic foot, shielded rooms and sophisticated signal generators as well as RF-power amplifiers with frequency outputs ranging from 10 kHz to 40 GHz.
Experienced EMI testing engineers and technicians conduct the EMI testing programs and provide engineering support when needed. The range of equipment that can be tested to the MIL-STD 461 and RTCA DO160 specifications includes 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 largest of the electrically shielded rooms measures 40’ x 30’ x 20’ with doublewide doors for large systems or complete missiles.
NTS has tested numerous military systems at these facilities, and can also provide complete dynamic and environmental testing, which makes it very convenient for those customers conducting a full qualification program.
NTS offers a full range of electromagnetic, dynamic, environmental, and computer hardware and software testing in accordance with both commercial and military specifications. NTS certifies products and systems ranging from central office telecom equipment and industrial electronics to communication satellites and military weapons systems. All major regulatory bodies recognize NTS certifications and test reports. Design analysis and product enhancement engineering services are also available. Contact us today to learn more.
