EZ-Test Plan MIL STD 461G CS 116 for Shipboard Controlled Applications
This EZ-Test Plan Test Plan Template is developed for use by manufacturers, contractors, engineering service companies and test labs. This document employs the Electromagnetic Test Plan (EMITP) format specified in DOD MIL-STD-461 per DI-EMCS-801201. This EZ-Test Plan template (Shipboard Controlled MIL STD 461G CS116) is customized for requirements applicable for the testing of shipboard equipment intended for use below decks in a controlled environment.
Test Plans are a requirement for all DOD EMI/EMC and Electrical Compatibility test methodologies. They serve to inform the laboratory of specific information about the Equipment Under Test (EUT) pertaining to operational modes, frequencies, monitoring, and simulation equipment used, and defined susceptibility evaluation parameters. This ensures that a proper evaluation will be performed.
Test Plans provide instruction to the test facility for documentation of all test setup and instrumentation parameters so that testing can be replicated at a later date. They also provide the test facility instruction for content of Test Reports as specified in MIL-STD-461 per DI-EMCS-801200. These test reports provide the required data for post-test analysis and substantiate due diligence for required testing to your customer.
It is essential for product developers of defense materiel to conduct thorough testing at the developmental stage to avoid failures during operational testing that can lead to costly program delays. An important part in the development of a viable developmental evaluation program is to have well-constructed test plans to ensure that evaluation be conducted that meets requirements for all operational modes of the specific EUT.
EMI/EMC and Electrical Compatibility testing is one of the most challenging hurdles for any product developer especially when that testing is conducted per Department of Defense standards. Proper test program documentation can provide clarity in the development of evaluative strategies before going to the test facility.
This EZ-Test Plan Template Set (Shipboard Controlled MIL STD 461G CS116) includes:
