Filters to safeguard satellite-based voice conferencing

Filters to safeguard satellite-based voice conferencing
Based upon satellites, Presidential and National Voice Conferencing (PNVC) is a second-generation follow-on communications capability with roots in the Milstar Survivable Emergency Conferencing Network (SECN). Ultimate responsibility for all aspects of the programme reside within the FAB-T Terminal Program Office and, with PNVC set to play a critical role in the future of the US nuclear command and control infrastructure, PNVC has received the highest visibility within the Department of Defence and US Air Force.

Safeguarding vulnerable electronics in war zones

Safeguarding vulnerable electronics in war zones
Fixed and mobile tactical shelters in war zones enhance a military commander’s ability to mobilise, deploy, manoeuvre and sustain forces. Fixed means housed in a permanent structure, whereas mobile denotes a unit that is transportable and deliverable.

Ground-breaking MIL-STD single-line 1200A HEMP filters from MPE avoid overheating from the paralleling of multiple lower current filters

Ground-breaking MIL-STD single-line 1200A HEMP filters from MPE avoid overheating from the paralleling of multiple lower current filters
The catastrophically destructive phenomenon of High-altitude ElectroMagnetic Pulse or HEMP can be caused either by the detonation of a nuclear missile high in the atmosphere or by space weather (solar flares and geomagnetic storms). MPE Ltd of Liverpool has pioneered electrical powerline filters for the protection of critical defence and national infrastructure assets from the effect of Nuclear ElectroMagnetic Pulse (NEMP) since the mid-1980s, when their hallmark integrated solution combining metal oxide varistors (MOVs), capacitors and inductors accorded with the NATO specifications of the day. In the 21st Century, MPE’s HEMP filters fully meet the pulse performance requirements of the ruling international standard MIL-STD-188-125.

Free-of-charge kits for trialling EMC protection on your military vehicles

Free-of-charge kits for trialling EMC 	 protection on your military vehicles
Commercial-off-the-shelf or COTS filters from MPE Ltd for EMI/RFI suppression assist the compliance of equipment on military vehicles with DEF STAN 59-411 and MIL-STD-461. Although solutions vary in current rating (3A to 300A) or number of lines (standard 2-line or 1-8 multi-line configurations) to suit the precise application, the type of filter circuit configuration will often be very similar.

MPE TEMPEST filters prevent covert interrogation of conducted lines

MPE TEMPEST filters prevent covert interrogation of conducted lines
The fact that electronic equipment such as computers and peripherals gives off electromagnetic emanations has long been a concern of the military, governments and commerce. Aimed at information security, filters for TEMPEST, often referred to as Transient ElectroMagnetic Pulse Emanation Standard, prevent eavesdropping on data radiated as signals from computers and peripherals via conducting lines (such as power, telephone or control line cables).

Nailing Common Misunderstandings About EMI Filters

Nailing Common Misunderstandings About EMI Filters
Despite EMC issues now usually being considered at an early stage during the product design process, unexpected problems still occur. In some cases, a simple approach to EMC and filtering is found to work but, more often than not, a more in-depth analysis is required to address the relevant EMC design considerations and subsequently identify the EMC solution. Misunderstandings are prevalent when selecting EMI filters in the course of equipment design, and here we explore some of the more common ones.

Tailormade EMP & HEMP filters from MPE safeguard vital electronics against pulse threats

Tailormade EMP & HEMP filters from MPE  safeguard vital electronics against pulse threats
For general commercial use, the performance of ElectroMagnetic Pulse (EMP) filters has traditionally been accepted as 60dB at 10kHz rising to 80dB from 100kHz to 1GHz. All lines in these multi-line systems feature high-energy transient suppressors, such as varistors, spark gaps or silicon avalanche diodes, at the input end.
