Defence & Government describes solutions for applications in the military and government markets, for EMC testing (MIL STD), C³ Centres (Control, Command, Communication), preventative protection against temporary emanation of spurious emissions (TEMPEST), COMSEC and protection against the electromagnetic pulse (EMP).
The Defence and Government market is driven by the responsibilities of national integrity and security; it is understandable therefore there are constraints to how much information can be provided; and this can sometimes be in conflict with what is required to design an appropriate facility. In general, highly customised solutions are needed for COMSEC, TEMPEST and EMP, these being mainly ‘protective’ measures. Where protective measures have to be taken for such requirements, this may occur in existing and sometimes old buildings which themselves, are not favourable to modular steel shielding techniques. In these cases, and fairly uniquely to this market, ‘architectural’ shielding solutions are available.
