MODUK - DEF STAN 59-188: PART 1
High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (HEMP) Protection for Ground Based Communication Facilities Performing Critical, Time-Urgent Missions Part 1: Fixed Facilities
|Publication Date:||21 December 2009|
This standard prescribes minimum performance requirements for low-risk protection from mission-aborting damage or upset due to HEMP threat environments defined in MIL-STD-2169B. This standard also addresses minimum testing requirements for demonstrating that prescribed performance has been achieved and for verifying that the installed protection subsystem provides the operationally required hardness for the completed facility. If the prescribed testing results in any hardware damage or functional upsets, the operational authority for the facility will make the determination whether the observed event is mission aborting.
