The war on terrorism has been a major driving factor for warfighter use of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) items. Multiple COTS products have been introduced in the field that have been tested to industry standards, immunity testing, rather than to Department of Defense (DoD) military standards—a subset for Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E3) testing called Radiated Susceptibility (RS) 103 testing, and External Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Environment (External RF EME) testing. The DoD needs to determine the minimum acceptable test for radiated susceptibility (RS)/Immunity in order to determine the risk, if any, to the operators using these products in the field. Many of the COTS products that have been introduced for DoD use were purportedly assessed to a military specification while being tested to an industry test. This thesis assesses the difference between DoD and industry RS/Immunity testing to determine the worst-case test scenario for ground systems.
