On military camps for joint international operations, the intersystem interference can be highly unpredictable, and situation changes can occur very fast. For such situations it is highly important to perform intersystem interference analyses not only for intentional transmitters but also for electromagnetic interference from other electric equipment. One example of such an interference source to consider is medical equipment in field hospitals since the hospitals can contain a large amount of interfering equipment. In this article, we show examples of necessary safety distances between medical equipment and tactical radio systems at military camps for international missions. We give an example of how wideband electromagnetic interference can degrade the performance even for a wideband frequency hopping army combat radio.
