R-1114/1, published August 1974, was concerned with spectrum management and engineering of both intersystem and intrasystem electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and with the establishment of basic computer models that will help predict (and provide designs for control of) compatibility problems in systems involving multiple electronic components. A principal model described is the IEMCAP, or Intrasystem Electromagnetic Compatibility Analysis Program. The appendix, published as R-1690/1, focuses on intrasystem compatibility and on a broad program, the IAP, that will (1) supplement the IEMCAP with peripheral models, (2) provide it with a capability to perform nonlinear, near-field analysis, (3) supply it with measurement support requirements, and (4) set up a structure and procedures for implementation and validation of the various models and for training the persons who must use it. The IAP has been accepted by the Air Force and made available to the Department of Defense and industry.
