A special working procedure dedicated to the management of electromagnetic compatibility and electromagnetic interference risk matrices is also available and recommended for long-term projects, where the designer has to maintain control of a huge number of interconnected problems. From an analytical point of view HIRF is a formidable concentration of different electromagnetic problems, such as the shielding effectiveness of materials and apertures, external and internal resonances and quasi-cavity low level field distributions, and can encompass a range from kHz to tens of GHz.

Modern platforms and es-84, such as aircraft, ships, cars and base stations eurocar. We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website. Thanks to the experience and expertise matured over more than 30 years of activities, IDS offers high tech integrated solutions and services to perform control and design activities covering any of the above listed Electromagnetic Environmental Effects E3 phenomena.

This procedure is able to model the effects of composite and other lightweight materials that are not good conductors, eurcae at very low frequencies Professional post-processing procedures that allow easy and immediate identification of potential risks at equipment terminals for any of the lightning waveforms defined in the applicable normatives EUROCAE EDA and EUROCAE ED This approach can significantly reduce the risk of failure in the certification process and minimize the expensive and time consuming test activities that are required by international regulations.


In addition, currents and field levels at the location of susceptible elements can be predicted both by considering the aircraft in flight conditions and on a test site by also modeling the test site configuration, transmitting antennas and sensors. Shipbuilding and marine structures Estimating the electric field level at high frequencies inside satellite or avionic bays characterized by metallic, composite or dielectric walls with apertures is one of the most challenging tasks and also a factor in the definition of Radiated Susceptibility requirements.

Rubber and plastic industries Packaging and distribution of goods If the static discharge system has not been properly designed and optimized, accumulated charge may result in corona discharges or streamer discharges on dielectric surfaces and arcs. Materials handling equipment The Lightning Euroace team coordinate a research and collaboration network on Electromagnetic Characterisation of Carbon Composites EMC3with active membership from a wide array of industrial partners and academic institutions.

Visit the laboratory website. The increasing number of RF sources and the higher and higher levels of radiated power may pose hazards to personnel, fuel stores and ordnance.

External threats such as high intensity radiated fields HIRF can have catastrophic effects ekrocae modern avionic platforms due to the extensive use euroocae composite materials which provide reduced shielding and the replacement of mechanical and hydraulic flight controls with electronic devices fly-by-wire systems that are much more susceptible to electromagnetic interference.

This approach can significantly reduce the risk of failure in the certification process and minimize the expensive and time consuming test activities that are required by international regulations. Galileo integrates a validated state-of-the-art tool based on the Oversized Cavity Theory that has been tailored to this specific application.


Sciences humaines et sociales, lettres. Health care technology The ‘A’ component is currently under construction, and will be fully operational by the end of Domestic and commercial equipment. A power balance code whose results are presented in agreement with the applicable normative is also available for non-deterministic situations e.


Textile and leather technology Fluid systems and components for general use GALILEO has a comprehensive set of processing functions and working procedures to efficiently and effectively address these problems. Huge banks of capacitors store the eugocae, which is then released to simulate a lightning strike.

The Galileo HIRF module has been validated on the basis of numerous measurements, performed within the framework of the European Commission funded HIRF-SE Project, which included analysis of materials, sub-systems and systems, as well as complete commercial aircraft. Indirect Effects of Lightning.

Aircraft and space vehicle engineering Nowadays, platforms operate in more and more complex and severe electromagnetic environments with increasing numbers of external and internal radiating sources, higher power levels of wanted and unwanted emissions, extensive use of materials with reduced shielding effectiveness, and a proliferation of electronic and electric systems more sensitive to external threats.
