EMC/EMI Prediction & Measurement
The growing use of electronics on board naval ships increases the likelihood of unwanted effects caused by electromagnetic interference (EMI), making electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) a vital part of a ship’s performance.
When designing a modern naval vessel, its electromagnetic environment has to be taken into account. Additionally, as a ship goes through its life, natural wear and tear can affect its operational capability. Detection of possible electromagnetic performance degradation is necessary to ensure that a ship is able to successfully perform its mission while maintaining its level of survivability and ensuring its crew remains safe.
Finally, modifications in the topside configuration following a refit as well as the addition of new or changes to existing equipment, such as weapons, communications or surveillance systems, can also affect the electromagnetic profile of a ship and can result in unforeseen performance problems.
IDS Naval Division has developed both electromagnetic environment prediction design software (Ship EDF-EME) and measurement system (AZIMUTH).
The IDS Naval Division not only develops software tools and measurement systems but also provides full assistance through in-house technical services and management support. For our bespoke software tools and measurement capabilities, IDS can provide services from small focused studies to full topside and below deck analyses. In addition IDS will provide software installation, training and follow-on support to build an electromagnetic design capability at our customer’s premises.
