Abstract : The major effort in the second quarter consisted of experiment planning and performance of the EMC experimental test program. A preliminary effort has also begun on the analysis portion of the program. Computer programs are being developed to assist in an EMC analysis of millimeter wave systems with emphasis on interference prediction of various deployments that may be employed in present and future applications of millimeter wave systems. Experimental procedures, objectives, performance, instrumentation, test set ups, results, and conclusions of the experiments performed are described on nine experiments, two analysis programs and preliminary effort on the interference prediction. Millimeter wave systems in the K band (20 to 40 GHz), V band (50 to 70) and W band (80 to 100 GHz) have been investigated during this period. EMC instrumentation with continuous coverage from 10 to 100 GHz has been evaluated. Breadboard set ups for evaluation of millimeter wave systems and components have been developed with capabilities of measuring millimeter signals and fields up to 120 GHz.
