Abstract

Immunity measurement of informatic (IT) equipment and specialized military equipment on high power microwave (HPM) pulses are taking on more and more importance. In quite a short time, these tests can become a standard procedure for military and IT systems. The article presents a laboratory stand for the measurement of the immunity of military equipment to HPM pulses along with a description of the measurement procedure. In the research laboratory, one should strive to accredit each of the measurement procedures being carried out. At the Electromagnetic Compatibility Laboratory in the Military University of Technology, the measurement procedure discussed above was prepared for accreditation. One of the basic aspects of accreditation is the determination and assurance of the lowest measurement of uncertainty. The main goal of this article is to present how to determine and calculate the uncertainty budget for the measurement of the immunity of IT equipment and specialized military equipment to HPM pulses.
