Military EMC Testing

Green Mountain Electromagnetics, Inc. is an EMC and Radio test laboratory. For 25 years, GME has been offering electronic-product manufacturers compliance testing to military standards. At GME, we offer quality testing alongside personalized service, creating positive long-term relationships with clients. Careful time and attention is taken to work with customers that experience Electromagnetic Interference in products.

The following methods are examples of some of the more common tests performed on military equipment:

Department of Defense Interface Standard MIL-STD-461G, “Requirements for the Control of Electromagnetic Interference Characteristics of Subsystems and Equipment (10 December 2015).” Operation and evaluation of the equipment under test were per manufacturer instruction.

Low-frequency conducted emission measurement equipment and procedures were in accordance with MIL-STD-461F, method CE101. The limit is per figure CE101-2 from 60 Hz to 10 kHz.

High-frequency conducted emission measurement equipment and procedures were in accordance with MIL-STD-461F, method CE102. The limit is per figure CE102-1 from 10 kHz to 10 MHz.

Low-frequency radiated emission measurement equipment and procedures were in accordance with MIL-STD-461F, method RE101. The limit is per figure RE101-2 from 30 Hz to 100 kHz.

High-frequency radiated emission measurement equipment and procedures were in accordance with MIL-STD-461F, method RE102. The limit is per figure RE102-2 from 10 kHz to 18 GHz for internal to pressure hull.
