Purpose

This document is intended to cover general and specific requirements relating to equipment and subsystems, guidance and requirements for development of a test program for all material characterised as electronic, electrical and electromechanical equipment, to be tested at the equipment and subsystems level.

General purpose is:

a. To state the overall test objectives for the validation of material design, within the electromagnetic environment.

b. To provide general guidance for management of a test program for the electrical/electromagnetic environment and to provide guidance in the selection of tests

c. To outline the necessary processes and products of the test program that includes test procedures, data collection and assessment to achieve acceptable assurance.

Specific purpose is:

To provide background information under the heading 'discussion' for general requirements and applicability for detailed test requirements. This information includes rationale for requirements, guidance in applying the requirements, and lessons learned from platform and laboratory experience. This information should help users understand the intent behind the requirements. In addition it should aid the procuring activity in tailoring emission and susceptibility requirements as necessary for particular applications and help users develop detailed test procedures in the EMITP based on the general test procedures in this document. This background information is provided for guidance purposes and, as such, should not be interpreted as providing contractual requirements.

Application

This document includes information which shall be considered as follows when using the AECTP 500 series of Electrical/Electromagnetic Tests:

a. Test program development.

b. Applicability of each test

c. Test Methodology

d. Parameter levels for the tests.

e. Characteristics of Test Facilities.

f. Test Item configuration.

g. Test Conditions.

h. Pre and Post-test checks of the test item

i. Test Products including Plans, Data and Reports

j. Failure criteria.

Material containing Electro Explosive Devices (EEDs)

Test and assessment requirements for material containing EEDs are documented in STANAG 4239, 4324, 4327 and 4416. In general EMC tests in accordance with the AECTP 500 series tests will also be necessary for material that do not directly interface with the EEDs.

Combined Testing

The tailoring process (AECTP100) may identify a need to combine electrical/electromagnetic environmental testing with other environments in the 300 and 400 series. Such combinations may produce a more realistic representation of the effects of the overall environment than a series of single tests

ELECTRICAL/ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL TESTS
AECTP 500 is one of five documents included in STANAG 4370. Its most common application is for insuring the resistance of materiel to electric and electromagnetic effects.
