a. Electromagnetic Compatibility
support is available to the Army.
b. The Electromagnetic Environmental Test Facility at Fort
Huachuca, Arizona, an Army facility operated with contractual support
by the United States Army Test and Evaluation Command, provides both
field test and analytical capabilities to support the Army
Test Facility is specially designed to simulate the electromagnetic
equipment, and to test and analyze such systems and equipment in this
Four interrelated facilities are used to accomplish
these tasks: a computer-supported interference prediction model, a
electromagnetic environment simulator and a systems scoring facility.
c. The services of the Electromagnetic Environmental Test
Facility are available to commanders, scientists, program and project
managers, and developers of equipment for the United States Army and
other elements of the Department of Defense Services of the
Electromagnetic Environmental Test Facility include electromagnetic
compatibility and vulnerability tests and evaluations of Army, Air
subsystems and equipment at all levels of analysis.
analyses required can be performed at any of all of the critical
points in the materiel life cycle.
d. For future concepts and doctrines now in the planning stage,
The results of the evaluations enable the
recommendations for correcting the problems encountered.
results and recommendations serve as bases for divisions affecting
the development of such concepts and doctrines, and the design of
e. If a user desires to know what radio field intensities his
equipment will experience in a tactical deployment, Electromagnetic
test to determine and report the signal levels and frequencies
experienced by the tested equipment at specific geographic locations.
Should the user want to determine how well his equipment will operate
or communicate in various or specific geographical areas or
conditions, Electromagnetic Environmental Test Facility can conduct
tests involving such propagation phenomena as smooth spherical earth,
irregular terrain, jungle mixed path, skywave.
The user may desire
to establish the compatibility of his equipment within a specific
environment. For example, he might seek answers to such questions as
