EMC, Environmental Simulation, Radio and Electrical Safety testing Defence Industry

Research and development play a decisive role in the arms and defence industry, in which high-tech components and systems are manufactured. Many innovations from this sector find their way into civilian fields, including navigation and radar systems in road transportation and aviation.

New defence technologies are constantly being developed – not only for army, navy and air forces, but also to protect military personnel from harm. These technologies must be able to withstand significant stresses and function reliably, safely and with maximum precision in practical deployment.

Evaluating the impact of environmental factors specific to military applications calls for sophisticated testing methods. Testing must go well beyond the standard criteria that are sufficient in other industries, such as electromagnetic interference, atmospheric pressure, direct sunlight and humidity.

EMCC offers clients in the defence sector comprehensive consulting and testing services relating to electrical safety, EMC, radio and environmental simulation.

Consulting and accredited testing services to relevant military standards and other standards/specifications

Our goal is to address the demands imposed on defence systems and components at an early stage of development. Our services encompass all E3 criteria:

  • EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) testing
  • EMC (Electromagnetic compatibility) testing
  • EMS
  • TEMPEST
  • EMSEC (Emission Security) testing
  • COMSEC (Communications Security) testing 
  • LEMP (Lightning Electromagnetic Pulse) testing
  • NEMP (Nuclear Electromagnetic Pulse) testing
  • HERF (High Electric Radiated Fields) testing
  • HIRF (High Intensity Radiated Fields) testing
  • HPM (High Power Microwaves) testing
  • Indirect and direct effects of lightning

Testing according to military and manufacturer standards
