After delays due to sequestration in the government the DoD Interface standard MIL-STD-461G has finally been released.
The DoD Tri-Service Committee had several meetings at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Pax River Maryland, Huntsville Alabama, and Orlando Florida to discuss changes and additions to the standard. The major additions to the spec are requirements for indirect lightning and electrostatic discharge.
“This standard establishes interface and associated verification requirements for the control of the electromagnetic interference (EMI) emission and susceptibility characteristics of electronic, electrical, and electromechanical equipment and subsystems designed or procured for use by activities and agencies of the Department of Defense (DoD),” as stated in Assist.
Every 5 years government standards must be reviewed.
