The increased use of electrical and electronic equipment aboard Naval ships introduces risk of electromagnetic interference (EMI) problems to ship operation and performance.
As systems are added, they all contribute and could become susceptible to an intense electromagnetic environment (EME). Considering the corrosive salt water environment in which ships must operate and the interaction of a ship’s electrically conductive metallic superstructure, topside hardware, antenna systems, etc., the potential for interoperability problems is significantly increased.
Potential EMI and personnel safety problems related to electronic equipment operating in these environments are magnified because of:
