Abstract : To assess electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) problems created by increased dependence on and expanded use of communications-electronics systems, this study examines frequency application requirements, specifications, weapons systems acquisition procedures, and Air Force and industry practices. It also analyzes radio spectrum usage in terms of our capabilities for handling current spectrum utilization and future problems. Emphasis is on the technological aspects of EMC as applied to intrasystem and intersystem compatibility. A promising new technical concept is developed: the application of computers and mathematical models to intrasystem EMC technology and management, including vulnerability assessment, design of specifications, and control process.
