MIL STD- Electromagnetic Effects Requirements for Systems

Keywords electromagentic effects MIL STD requirements for systems


4.1 General
The system shall be designed to achieve electromagnetic compatibility among all subsystems and equipments within the system and with the external electromagnetic environment.

4.1.1 System Electromagnetic Effects Program
The prime contractor shall establish an overall integrated Electromagnetic Effects Program (EMEP) for the system. The program shall be structured to ensure that all the requirements of this standard are treated in a unified fashion resulting in a single integrated design approach. The overall program shall include the necessary design, planning, technical criteria and management controls needed to achieve overall electromagnetic compatibility and to verify that the design requirements specified herein are met. The program shall be based on the requirements in this standard, the statement of work system specification, and other applicable contract documents. The prime contractor shall direct each associate contractor to establish the technical effort and necessary management and controls to accomplish their individual parts of the overall EMEP.

1.1 Purpose.
This standard establishes requirements, verification criteria, and contractor tasks for electromagnetic effects protection of airborne, ground, and support systems. These effects include electromagnetic compatibility, electromagnetic interference, lightning, static electricity, radio frequency compatibility, electromagnetic pulse, electrical bonding and grounding.

1.2 Application.
This standard is applicable for complete systems both new and modified, and is mandatory for use by the Department of the Air Force.

1.3 Use.
This standard is primarily intended for use on airborne platforms. It can, however, with tailoring of specific design requirements and verification approaches be made applicable to any type of system. This document replaces MIL-E4051 and MIL-B-5087 for Air Force use. This standard is in two parts, the main body and a handbook portion. The main body of the standard specifies a baseline set of requirements. The handbook portion provides rationale, guidance, and lessons learned for each requirement which allows the procuring activity to effectively tailor the baseline requirements for a particular application.
