The EMITP describes the measurement procedures that will be used to
demonstrate that an equipment or subsystem complies with its contractual electromagnetic
interference (EMI) requirements based on MIL-STD-461, including how the general test
procedures in the standard will be applied to the specific equipment or subsystem.

This Data Item Description (DID) contains the format and content preparation instructions for
the EMITP required by 5.1 of MIL-STD-461.

This DID is related to DI-EMCS-80199B, Electromagnetic Interference Control Procedures
(EMICP), and DI-EMCS-80200B, Electromagnetic Interference Test Report (EMITR).
This DID supersedes DI-EMCS-80201A.
