Safety and Standards

All Winmate defense products are built and tested according to defense standards MIL-STD-810 and MIL-STD-461.



MIL-STD-461G stands as the definitive military testing standard, laying out precise requirements for ensuring electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in devices and systems designed for and employed by the United States Department of Defense (DoD). Within the pages of MIL-STD-461G, a comprehensive suite of test procedures is meticulously detailed to adhere to the DoD's stringent regulations regarding electromagnetic emissions and susceptibility.

These test procedures are categorized into four distinct groups: radiated emissions (RE), conducted emissions (CE), radiated susceptibility (RS), and conducted susceptibility (CS). Each procedure is identified by a two-letter abbreviation followed by a specific code. For instance, RE103 designates a radiated emissions test procedure dedicated to evaluating antenna spurious and harmonic outputs.

Detection of illicit signals and electromagnetic interference assumes paramount importance in military operations, given that virtually every electronic device, from a common cellphone to a critical navigation component in a stealth jet, emits electromagnetic fields that could potentially jeopardize safety, operational efficiency, or secure communications.

To address this pressing concern, the DoD established the Electromagnetic Compatibility Program, with the overarching objective of integrating electromagnetic compatibility considerations into the research and development efforts of the defense industry. Over time, all three branches of the military have joined forces to develop updated and expanded iterations of the standard. This collaborative effort culminated in the latest version, MIL-STD-461G.

Notable changes implemented between MIL-STD-461F and MIL-STD-461G include the elimination of CS106 and the introduction of CS117 and CS118, signifying significant shifts and advancements in the realm of electromagnetic compatibility testing and standards.

MIL-STD-461 is a United States Defence Standard that describes how to test equipment for electromagnetic compatibility.

Specifically,MIL-STD-461F details testing specifications to ensure the conducted emissions (CE), conducted susceptibility (CS), radiated emissions (RE), and radiated susceptibility (RS) of a system can meet the requirements for the control of electromagnetic interference.
