EMI Test Facility

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

FUNCTION: Supports electromagnetic interference/radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI) testing of flight hardware. It is also used to support custom RF testing up to 40 GHz.DESCRIPTION: The facility consists of a 23 x 23 ft semi-anechoic main chamber with a 23 x 20 ft antechamber. It is a completely welded steel structure that provides a minimum of 120 dB of shielding effectiveness at 18 GHz and 100 dB up to 50 GHz. The main chamber uses a hybrid anechoic material consisting of wideband pyramidal absorbers and ferrite tiles for performance from 20 MHz to 50 GHz. A 10 ft high x 11 ft wide sliding bladder type door allows easy access of large test items to the main chamber. The steel floor rests directly on the concrete slab, so floor loading is not an issue. Filtered and transformer isolated ac electrical power is available in both chambers: 100 A, 120/208 V, 3-phase services, and 60 A, 120/240 V, 1-phase services for each chamber.INSTRUMENTATION: The chamber is equipped with a complete suite of instrumentation to do the full range of MIL-STD-461 EMI qualification testing. Computers with custom-developed software are used for instrumentation control, data handling, and data storage. Additional test equipment is available to do a variety of specialized testing during component design, through system integration and self compatibility.
