Due in part to the Wireless Revolution, electromagnetic environmental effects (E3) are increasingly becoming a widespread concern. As more devices produce intentional and unintentional radio signals, they increasingly interfere with each other. This is known as Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), an important part of the general field of Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E3). The devices will not work together by accident. They must be specially designed to be compatible, that is: to prevent Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and achieve Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC.) Originally limited to the shipboard, aerospace, and missile fields, concerns about Electromagnetic Environmental Effects and Electromagnetic Compatibility can now be found in offices, communication centers and hospitals.
This course covers the basic concepts and terminology of Electromagnetic Environmental Effects and Electromagnetic Compatibility, along with an overview of current military and civilian practices. It provides practical advice on ways to prevent Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and achieve Electromagnetic Compatibility without technical or administrative "overkill." Participants will gain an unusually broad overview of current world wide commercial and military EMC practices. They will gain the knowledge necessary to make practical and intelligent decisions regarding the design, acquisition, testing, troubleshooting and life-cycle management of electromagnetically compatible systems.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This course is specially designed for non-technical decision makers involved in the production, acquisition or management of Information Technology (IT), computers, communications, instrumentation, robotics, or other electronic devices. Held in a working Electromagnetics laboratory, with many of the most widely used E3 tools readily at hand, this course illustrates basic E3 concepts in an effective, easy-to understand manner. Current Military and Civilian E3 and EMC experts can also benefit from the unusually broad range of topics covered in this short, practical course.
