MIL STD 461 – Radiated Susceptibility
RS101 Radiated Susceptibility – Magnetic Field, 30 Hz to 100 kHz
This requirement is applicable to equipment and subsystem enclosures, including electrical cable interfaces. The requirement is not applicable for electromagnetic coupling via antennas. For equipment intended to be installed on Navy aircraft, the requirement is applicable only to aircraft with ASW capability. For Army ground equipment, the requirement is applicable only to vehicles having a minesweeping or mine detection capability. This test procedure is used to verify the ability of the EUT to withstand radiated magnetic fields.
RS103 Radiated Susceptibility – Electric Field, 2 MHz to 40 GHz
This requirement is applicable to equipment and subsystem enclosures and all interconnecting cables. The requirement is applicable as follows:
a. 2 MHz to 30 MHz
Army ships; Army aircraft (including flight line); Navy (except aircraft); and optional for all others
b. 30 MHz to 100 MHz
All (except Navy aircraft)
c. 100 MHz to 1 GHz
d. 1 GHz to 18 GHz
e. 18 GHz to 40 GHz
Optional for all
The requirement at the tuned frequency of an antenna-connected receiver is 20 dB above the RE102 limit associated with the particular platform application. This test procedure is used to verify the ability of the EUT and associated cabling to withstand electric fields.
RS105 Radiated Susceptibility – Transient Electromagnetic Field
This requirement is applicable to equipment and subsystem enclosures when the equipment or subsystem is to be located external to a hardened (shielded) platform or facility. The requirement is applicable for equipment intended solely for use on non-metallic platforms when specified by the procuring activity. The requirement is applicable to Army aircraft for safety critical equipment and subsystems located in an external installation. This test procedure is used to verify the ability of the EUT enclosure to withstand a transient electromagnetic field.
