EMC Testing for Aerospace

TRaC is the biggest independent aerospace testing and qualification organisation in the UK.

We provide military and civil aerospace manufacturers with the perfect partner for the design, testing and qualification process of aircraft sub-systems.

We work with aerospace companies from the initial design; our Early Stage Qualification (ESQ®) service supports them through the complex nature of qualification testing of aerospace components to deliver against airframe manufacturers’ imposed qualification milestones. Our ESQ expertise from testing thousands of different products every year and our industry-leading capacity allows us to help companies mitigate the risk of failing to meet critical deadlines such as safety of flight, and receiving punitive measures for late delivery.

TRaC is UKAS accredited to BS EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005, signatories to SC21 and has the largest capacity for aerospace EMC of any independent test company in the UK. Across our six sites we have six specific aerospace EMC chambers, two reverberation chambers and indirect lighting equipment that provides an unrivalled capacity to accommodate the demands of any aerospace qualification programme.

Our experts design and deliver both pre-compliance testing, as well as formal aerospace EMC testing programmes for over 300 aerospace products every year. These cover a wide range of susceptibility issues and emissions that your products will need to endure in the harsh electromagnetic environment in which they will be asked to operate.

Our aerospace EMC testing and qualification services are designed to provide aerospace validation, most commonly against the following standards:

Civil aerospace:

  • RTCA DO-160 – up to and including revision G

Defence aerospace

  • DEF STAN 59-411
  • DEF STAN 59-41
  • MIL-STD 461
  • MIL-STD 704

Additionally, we work with airframers’ specific qualification requirements which many manufacturers demand:

  • SPE-J-1000 (Euro fighter)
  • ABD 0100 (Airbus)
  • D6-16050 (Boeing)
