Abstract : An electromagnetic (EM) shielding effectiveness test was conducted to evaluate the performance of 10-mil-thick TI-Shield applied to an Army tactical shelter. TI-Shield is a clad metal composite of copper/alloy49/copper which is typically available bonded to 1/4-in. particle board. Gaven Industries installed the TI-Shield panels to the interior of a plywood shelter mockup using continuously soldered seams. This shielded enclosure was then tested according to IEEE-STD-299-1991, with some modifications. The shelter mockup and EM testing are discussed with the results presented as recommended by the standard. These results demonstrate that application of TI-Shield to a shelter would satisfy the EM shielding requirement of MlL-STD-907B.
