The principle of assessing vehicle safety via a mutual interference trial is shown in Figure 4. We perform testing for man worn portables, line replacement units and subsystems and support equipment, covering: In the longer term Def Stan will be updated to address the following objectives: Element can provide you with critically important data on your product or part's performance in response to typical or extreme environmental stresses and conditions. Find out how Elements comprehensive fuel system testing programs simulate in-service conditions at our world-class testing facilities.

However, testing can be minimised by establishing Technical Documentation to demonstrate that Def Stan satisfies the majority of the EMC directive requirements and that the remaining unsatisfied requirements are addressed by testing in accordance with commercial standards.
UK Defence Standard 59-411 on Electromagnetic Compatibility
Platform trials were not specified in detail in the previous Def Stan ; therefore, this new Part 4 incorporates a range of other Defence Standards and industry best practice stsn provide a definitive set of requirements. We perform testing for man worn portables, line replacement units and subsystems and support equipment, covering: Our facilities include a heavy vehicle semi-anechoic chamber HVSAC with a 18m x 14m working volume and capacity for 70 ton floor loading.
DEF-STD is organised into 5 sections and the sfan below show how it differs from the previous standard: The need to ensure platforms and 59--411 remain safe shan that the role of EMC and functional safety will be a priority. Our A2LA and UKAS accredited test programs match the strict requirements of military standards, giving you certainty in your results — and your products.
Our deliverable is certainty - high quality data, test reports and certificates that you can absolutely rely on when making decisions about your materials and compliance. We will look at each of these in turn and how the distance between the equipment and the nearest antenna affects the requirements.
Part 5 Code of Practice for Tri-Service Design and Installation Part 5 provides staan guidance with sections to cover air, land and sea applications, and addresses EMC fundamentals, equipment and platform design. With the ability to test small fixtures and full-size vehicles, our equipment gives us the capacity and availability to perform even the most complex test plans within a competitive time frame.
The most common types of equipment that this would apply are portable devices and equipment installed on the exterior of any vehicle which bears an RF antenna. Part 3 incorporates the previous Def Stan Part 3 and addresses equipment testing.
Conducted Emissions Conducted susceptibility Radiated Emissions Radiated susceptibility Electrostatic discharge ESD We also work with customers and the Ministry tsan Defense to develop testing packages that cover both defense and commercial requirements with a single test program, including: Modified test procedures are given for in situ testing of equipment on platforms or during commissioning.
Land Class D — This category applies to equipment operated over m from the nearest antenna and covers commercial equipment and could be exempt from testing if it already complies with the EMC directive. As a trusted supplier of military, aerospace and commercial testing services, we support many major military and defense standards, and provide testing services for unique and challenging projects.
Part 4 applies to whole platform and large system test and trials. Land Class A — This category presents the most challenges as the equipment must operate within 2m of the nearest antenna and this distance cannot be increased. Test Methods and Limits for Sub Systems.
Land Class B — This applies to equipment operating between 2m and 15m from the antenna. Def Stan is not a safety standard, but recognises that controlling EMC plays an important role in safety management; therefore, the Part 1 includes guidance on EMC and functional safety and Part 4 provides trials for platform safety clearance.
The document is organised into five Parts shown in Figure 1, which also shows the relationship to the previous Def Stan This amendment will correct errors and provide new material including: Ready to request a quote? All electronic equipment referred to in type 1 must comply with both emissions and susceptibility testing.
We are committed to supporting you with on time delivery and multidisciplinary support, so your projects are right the first time, every time. Some of the additional military and defense testing services we offer include: As a single-source partner for EMC and environmental testingwe deliver fast turnaround times to help you meet contractual and operational requirements.
DEF-STD and the challenge of Land Class A
Subscribe to our blog. A new section has been included to provide the rationale behind the tests. This complicates the design process and increases cost as the limits for land class A are very stringent and require additional components and more complex construction. Our experts have years of sef in military testing, and we have the knowledge to support your testing and validation program from start to finish.
MIL-STD-461 & DEF STAN 59-411 EMC Testing
We perform testing for man worn portables, line replacement units and subsystems and support equipment, covering:. Working with our customer, we develop test plans and strategies that cover both defense and commercial requirements with a single test program. These technologies include all electric ships, frequency hopping radios, electric armour, electronic counter measures ECM and unmanned airborne vehicles UAV.
The ship and submarine trials include the requirement for the weapon electronic mutual interference trial WEMIT.
