Electromagnetic compatibility

In our EMC test laboratory that is accredited in line with the DIN EN ISO 17025 standard we examine electromagnetic compatibility in three absorber chambers and an unshielded laboratory.

When performing measurements for satellites and their components we resort to ESA (ECSS-E-ST-10-07), NASA standards or, for instance, to standards that were defined for the ISS.

Basis of these aerospace equipment tests are RTCA DO-160 as well as Boeing (D6-16050) or Airbus (ABD0100) industry standards. Of course, our test facilities and the test equipment also meet complex military standards, such as MIL-STD-461, MIL-STD-1275, MIL-STD-704, AMD24, VG95373, Tornado and Eurofighter.
