If you are about to buy an electromagnetically shielded room, take the mystery out.

*Save Money
*Avoid Common Pitfalls
*Finish On Time and Within Budget
*Get A Better Room for your Money

THE SHIELDED ENCLOSURE HANDBOOK

is the definitive guide for the buyer, builder, tester, and user of electromagnetically shielded rooms. It contains practical and important information that is available nowhere else:

* Managing the Project,

* Testing and certifying the room,

* Getting the best price,

* How to handle modifications,

* Which Specifications to use,

* Identifying and Eliminating RF Leaks,

* Selecting a builder,

* Maintenance.

Electromagnetically shielded enclosures ("shielded rooms") are are used for Electromagnetic Compatibility testing, for security, and for protection against a wide variety of electromagnetic environmental effects ( E3 ), including High Power Microwave sources ( HPM ) and High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse ( HEMP ) protection.

THE SHIELDED ENCLOSURE HANDBOOK is a practical guide for the buyers of shielded rooms, for the construction firms and the craftsmen that assemble them, for the engineers that test their shielding effectiveness, and for the users that must maintain them.

THE SHIELDED ENCLOSURE HANDBOOK identifies common acquisition pitfalls that waste money and can leave you with less than you bargained for.

THE SHIELDED ENCLOSURE HANDBOOK reduces the risks involved in building a shielded room.

THE SHIELDED ENCLOSURE HANDBOOK shows you how to test the room quickly, accurately, safely and economically.

THE SHIELDED ENCLOSURE HANDBOOK covers maintenance, modifications, and includes applicable US GOVERNMENT SPECIFICATIONS, some of which are difficult to obtain.

The author holds B.S. and M.S. Degrees in Electrical Engineering, is a Certified Electromagnetic Compatibility Engineer, and a Certified TEMPEST Professional, Level II (the highest level.) He has served as the buyer, user, tester and supplier of electromagnetically shielded enclosures, and is an internationally recognized expert in this field. Since 1998, he has personally tested more than 35 shielded rooms, ranging in size from an 8 ft x 8 ft x 8 ft room, to a 40 ft x 40 ft x 60 ft satellite testing chamber.

If you are a buyer, builder, tester, or user of shielded rooms, THE SHIELDED ENCLOSURE HANDBOOK belongs in your hands.

More about buying, building, testing, and maintaining electromagnetically shielded enclosures (electromagnetically shielded rooms.)

Electromagnetically shielded rooms, otherwise known as electromagnetically shielded enclosures, Faraday cages, screen rooms, TEMPEST rooms, HEMP rooms, RF rooms, microwave laboratories, TEMPEST laboratories, and sometimes erroneously as Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIFs) are unique enclosures whose main purpose is to keep radio signals from getting in or out.
At first glance, Electromagnetically shielded rooms, electromagnetically shielded enclosures, Faraday cages, screen rooms, TEMPEST rooms, or HEMP rooms, RF rooms, microwave laboratories, TEMPEST laboratories, or Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIFs) appear to be just another construction project, but it is quite different from that. Electromagnetically shielded rooms involve a unique combination of construction skills and electronic assembly skills that only a few firms possess. Without a good background in this unique technology, the purchasers of Electromagnetically shielded rooms purchasers can find themselves with electromagnetically shielded enclosures ( shielded rooms ) which have many electromagnetic leaks. Finding and fixing those leaks can be a slow and expensive proposition which can cost more than building the Electromagnetically shielded room in the first place. THE SHIELDED ENCLOSURE HANDBOOK helps readers avoid the most common technical and contractual pitfalls that are involved in the acquisitiion, use, maintenance, and life-cycle management of electromagnetically shielded rooms.

THE SHIELDED ENCLOSURE HANDBOOK is particularly well-suited for those designing protection against High Power Microwave ( HPM ) devices or High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse ( HEMP ). As cited in MIL-HDBK-423 and MIL-STD-188-125-1 and -2, shielded enclosures are an essential part of protection against High Power Microwave ( HPM ) devices or High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse ( HEMP ). Unfortunately, many of those who are tasked with designing protection against High Power Microwave ( HPM ) devices or High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse ( HEMP ) have not had much experience in buying, testing, using, and maintaining these unique structures, which in many cases are essential for High Power Microwave ( HPM ) protection and High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse ( HEMP ). Shielded rooms and shielded enclosures are not the only way to protect a system from the effects of High Power Microwave ( HPM ) devices or High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse ( HEMP ) However, in many cases they are the fastest, most reliable, and most practical way to protect existing systems against the destructive effects of High Power Microwave ( HPM ) devices or High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse ( HEMP ). If you need to protect your equipment against High Power Microwave ( HPM ) attacks or High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse ( HEMP ) attacks, and you don't have much experience in specifiying, buying, building, testing and maintaining shielded enclosires or shielded rooms, this book will save you many time its cost. For more infromation about the use of shielded rooms and shielded ecnlosures in protecting against High Power Microwave ( HPM )attacks devices or High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse ( HEMP ) attacks, CALL US at 703-836-7378. .

THE SHIELDED ENCLOSURE HANDBOOK helps you obtain robust, long lasting shielded rooms quickly and economically. THE SHIELDED ENCLOSURE HANDBOOK provides essential information that you will need to make good decisions regarding the design, contracting, construction, testing and maintenance of Electromagnetically shielded rooms. THE SHIELDED ENCLOSURE HANDBOOK is a technical book, but you don't have to be an engineer or a technician to understand it. If your job involves the selection, acquisition, installation or management of shielded rooms will find that THE SHIELDED ENCLOSURE HANDBOOK will save you many times its modest cost.
