System and unit designers should be aware that unique tests and considerations are required for the space qualification of any electronic unit. These invariably include a group of tests that are called electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) tests. The EMI/EMC qualification test phase is usually performed on an engineering model and for the first flight unit. An EMI/EMC qualification test phase is comprised of four major tests: conducted emissions; conducted susceptibility; radiated emissions; radiated susceptibility. These tests, several other EMI/EMC-like tests, important applicable documents, exceptions to the guidelines in these applicable documents; testing problems and solutions are described. This paper is intended as an introduction for the designer/builder of an electronic unit so that they may be able to plan for, and intelligently participate in a very important phase of their design's qualification. This will ensure that the entire system will function properly in its intended electromagnetic environment
