NPFC - MIL-STD-1385
PRECLUSION OF ORDNANCE HAZARDS IN ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS; GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR
|Publication Date:||1 August 1986|
This standard establishes the general requirements to preclude hazards resulting from ordnance having electroexplosive devices (EED's) exposed to electromagnetic fields. The nominal frequency range covered by this standard is from 200 kilohertz to 18 gigahertz and 33 to 40 gigahertz.
These requirements apply to all Naval Weapons Systems safety and emergency devices and other ancillary equipment containing electrically initiated explosive, propellant or pyrotechnic components. The trend in radar and communications equipment towards greater radiated power has resulted in growing concern with electromagnetic radiation hazards to ordnance. These hazards stem from the use of EED's which can be initiated spuriously by means of electromagnetic energy. In addition to the hazards that could occur, performance degradation is also considered.
