NPFC - MIL-STD-461
REQUIREMENTS FOR THE CONTROL OF ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE CHARACTERISTICS OF SUBSYSTEMS AND EQUIPMENT
|Publication Date:||15 October 1987|
Purpose. This standard establishes the documentation and design requirements for the control of the electromagnetic emission and susceptibility characteristics of electronic, electrical, and electromechanical equipment and subsystems (as defined herein) designed or procured for use by activities and agencies of the Department of Defense. Such equipment and subsystems may be used independently or as an integral part of other subsystems or systems.
Application. The requirements of this standard are
applicable to the extent specified in the individual equipment or
subsystem specification, contract or order. The applicability of
the emission and susceptibility requirements are dependent upon the
type of equipment or subsystems being procured for use in specific
systems or platforms reveal that the requirements in this standard
are not adequate for that procurement, they may be tailored by the
procuring activity and incorporated into the request-for-proposal
This standard is intended for use in the acquisition cycle of equipment and subsystems to specify the electromagnetic emission and susceptibility requirements for the control of EMI.
