Military EMC Testing

We offer a comprehensive test capability for our Military EMC customers for global standards.


Unlike commercial EMC testing, military EMC testing is performed at a 1 m distance, in the near field rather than 3 m or 10 m, and rather than being on non-conductive tables products are placed on copper ground planes unless they are man-worn.

Emission levels are generally lower than commercial, and conversely, immunity levels are higher.

We are able to test to all platform requirements and have DC, 50 Hz, 60 Hz and 400 Hz supplies to suit all product environment categories. With our commercial knowledge, we are also able to perform gap analysis for products for MOTS to COTS and COTS to MOTS where needed, and we can prepare test plans in advance of testing for you.

Please refer to our UKAS schedule for full details of specific standards we are accredited to and contact us for a full list of standards we can test to.
