15 Jun DEF STD was issued by the UK Ministry of Defence in for land, sea and air equipment. It replaced DEF STD and other EMC. We work with you to create MIL-STD and DEF STAN testing programs that meet your technical, contractual and operational requirements, giving you. 7 Feb DEF STAN Part 5 Issue 1 Amdt 1. Unclassified ix.

UK Defence Standard on Electromagnetic Compatibility | TÜV SÜD UK
It is important that satn test set up is correct to make sure the measurements are accurate to meet this standard. New defence technologies will impact the EM environment and therefore require the test methods and limits to be updated.
Radiated susceptibility test limits DRS02 have also san for: This was originally built to test the Challenger Main Battle tank, and has recently been used for the new generation of naval systems and British army vehicles including the Mastiff and Husky.
Land Class B — This applies to equipment operating between 2m and 15m from the antenna.
A new section has been included to provide the rationale behind the tests. Test laboratories wishing to test in accordance with Def Stan will need to undertake measurements within their screened rooms to verify that the results are sfan the permitted tolerances that address the frequency range 30 MHz to 1 GHz; an example result is shown in Figure 3.

UK Defence Standard 59-411 on Electromagnetic Compatibility
Covering electromagnetic 95-411 EMC characteristics of equipment and systems, MIL-STD testing ensures that products meet the stringent requirements for products used in rugged military environments. Our A2LA and UKAS accredited test programs match the strict requirements of military standards, giving you certainty in your results — and your sttan. The expected outcome is that MoD procurement contracts will require compliance with applicable EU directives, unless a specific exemption is granted, due to essential national security interests.
Working with our customer, we develop test plans and strategies that cover both defense and commercial requirements with a single test program. As there was no existing Defence Standard for aircraft EMC trials, the procedures are based on the aerospace industry best practice.
Land Class C — This category applies to equipment operated between m from the nearest antenna Land Class D — This category applies to equipment operated over m from the nearest antenna and wtan commercial equipment and could be exempt from testing if it already complies with the EMC directive. Work continues to revise the standard with Amendment 1 due in autumn The need to ensure platforms and equipment remain safe means that the role of EMC and functional safety will be a priority.
As a single-source partner for EMC and environmental testingwe deliver fast turnaround ddf to help you meet contractual and operational requirements. We are committed to supporting you with on time delivery and multidisciplinary support, so your projects are 59-41 the first time, every time. Part 1 addresses EMC throughout the project lifecycle.
Modified test procedures are given for in situ testing of equipment on platforms or during commissioning. All electronic equipment referred to in type 1 must comply with both emissions and susceptibility testing.
DEF-STD and the challenge of Land Class A
Land Class Eef — 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 syan the EMC directive. Land Class A — This category presents the most challenges dsf the equipment must operate within 2m of the nearest antenna and this distance cannot be increased.
Our experts have years of experience in military testing, and we have the knowledge to support your testing and validation program from start to finish. XP Power has a proven track record of designing power supplies to comply with the most stringent land class limits and working closely with our customers to ensure that the end equipment achieves the desired result using our pre-compliance test facilities.
There are separate limits for Land, Sea and Air applications but the area we would like to focus on here is the land class limits, what these are and the testing required to meet these limits.
DEF-STD is organised into 5 sections and the tables below show how it differs from the previous standard: The part of the standard which we will be concerning ourselves is Part 3: Applying EU directives to defence projects can lead to duplication of test programmes and additional costs. The type of equipment determines the tests required.
We perform testing for man worn portables, line replacement units and subsystems and support equipment, covering:. Twitter Tweets by XP Ztan. The most common types of equipment that this would apply are portable devices and equipment stam on the exterior of de vehicle cef bears an RF antenna.
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. Below is the set-up which must be within a screened room to achieve accurate results.
The test methods and limits are arranged in two annexes: Conducted Emissions Conducted susceptibility Radiated Emissions Radiated susceptibility Electrostatic discharge ESD We also work with customers and the Ministry of Defense to develop testing 59-11 that cover both defense and commercial requirements with a single test program, including: However, if the electronic equipment is not connected to conductive cables then it will only need radiated emissions and susceptibility testing.
Part 4 applies to whole platform and large system test and trials.
These five Parts of the new Def Stan provide the foundation for ensuring electromagnetic compatibility in defence procurement. We will look at each of these in turn and how the distance between the equipment and the nearest antenna affects the requirements. Guidance is provided to assist Project Managers and Contractors select appropriate EMC activities, dependent on project size and complexity.
Engage with an expert today. John is a long standing and highly active member of multiple committees within his field and is highly regarded as an expert in all polymer based composite materials. 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.
Test Methods and Limits for Sub Systems. Figure 4 — Platform Mutual Interference Trial Ships and submarines undergo mutual interference trials to ensure they are safe to proceed to sea and that sensors, communications and navigation systems operate compatibly.
Part 2 defines military EM scenarios and incorporates and replaces Def Stan 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 det clearance.
Part 3 incorporates the previous Def Stan Part 3 and addresses equipment testing.
The Def Stan Annex C introduces a revised method for verifying the screened room anechoic damping performance using sran continuous noise emitter CNE as a calibrated test source for use on a ground-conducting bench. Take the next step How can we help you? However, it can also be applied to vehicles not fitted with a radio that are close to the antenna, or another vehicle fitted with a radio, sef can be moved away.
The test methods and limits in Part 3 have been updated in response to changes in the military environment, due to the introduction of new systems such as BOWMAN.
Ships and submarines undergo mutual interference trials to ensure they are safe to proceed to sea and that sensors, communications and navigation systems operate compatibly.
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.
