SHIPBOARD BONDING, GROUNDING, AND OTHER TECHNIQUES FOR ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY AND SAFETY
Naval Sea Systems Command (Ship Systems)
The increased use of electrical and electronic equipment aboard naval ships introduces electromagnetic interference (EMI) problems to ship operation and per-formance. As systems are added, they all contribute and become susceptible to an intense electromagnetic environment (EME). Considering the corrosive salt water environment in which ships must operate and the interaction of a ship's electrically conductive metallic superstructure, topside hardware, antenna systems, etc., the potential for interoperability problems is significantly increased. Potential EMI and personnel safety problems related to electronic equipment operating in these environments are magnified because of: (a) the need to establish and maintain a low impedance (Z), common reference ground for all electrical/electronic equipment, and (b) the detrimental effects of: (1) natural and manmade, (2) spurious and intentional, (3) off-ship and own-ship, electromagnetic (EM) energy.
