Page Count: 248
scope:

This handbook is intended to provide personnel responsible for the design, development, and acquisition of DoD platforms, systems, subsystems, equipment, and devices with the guidance necessary for achieving the desired level of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). This handbook describes the tasks that should be accomplished to ensure electromagnetic environmental effects (E3) control/EMC measures are incorporated into the development and operational procedures of an item to achieve the desired level of EMC during its life cycle. This handbook may also be used by program managers (PMs) to identify the critical E3 issues that need to be addressed when preparing their required Program Status Reports.

This handbook is consistent with the policies and procedures of DoD Directives 5000.1, 3222.3 and 4650.1 and DoD Regulation 5000.2-R. Provisions of this handbook should be used by research, development and acquisition (RD&A) activities, at appropriate times during the life cycle of any platform, system, equipment or device which emits or which can be susceptible to electromagnetic energy. For example, the handbook is applicable:

a. During acquisition to assure visibility, accountability, and controllability of the EMC effort, as well as its integration into the overall program.

b. During the design process to assure management awareness and cost effective tailoring of applicable EMC performance requirements and interface standards.

This handbook may also be used by contractors as a guide for establishing and implementing an effective EMC program.

This handbook is for guidance only. This handbook cannot be cited as a requirement. If it is, the contractor does not have to comply.

This handbook describes the steps that should be taken during the life cycle to ensure an equipment, subsystem, system, or platform is not only compatible within itself (that is, self-compatible) but also has a high probability of continued operation, within acceptable tolerances, with other equipment, systems, and platforms in its intended Electromagnetic Environments (EMEs).

Section 2 provides a list of applicable documents and Section 3 defines the terms that are used in this handbook. Section 4 describes, in general terms, the tasks that should be accomplished to ensure the desired level of EMC performance is achieved. The remaining Sections and Appendices describe in greater detail aspects of the various tasks and include:

a. Spectrum Management.

b. Establishing an E3 Working-Level Integrated Product Team (WIPT).

c. Specifying EMC Performance Requirements.

d. Tailoring.

e. Use of Commercial and Non-Developmental Items (NDIs).

f. Implementation of the Joint E3 Control Strategy (JECS).

g. EMC Verification.

h. E3 Analysis and predictions.

i. EMC Training.

intended Use:

This handbook provides guidance for establishing an effective EMC program.
