SKAO RFI Facility Qualification: Metrology: Application Note

October 5, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Observatory (SKAO) radio frequency interference (RFI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) standard defines different applicable emissions thresholds, depending on where a product is installed. This includes typical EMC testing like the IEC-61000-x or MIL-STD-461, up to the very stringent SKA telescope threshold levels. All equipment located at the telescope sites must comply to the SKA RFI/EMC Standard telescope thresholds. Construction of the SKA in both South Africa and Australia will require many EMC testing facilities to qualify hardware systems or sub-systems manufactured across the world. It is important that all test facilities produce the same acceptable and comparable results. This presentation describes the minimum requirements to which a facility must comply to be considered an SKAO accredited RFI/EMC test facility, and a test facility can be certified to a certain threshold level capability. The presentation will furthermore touch on RFI qualification test procedures to verify compliance of hardware systems or sub-systems to the SKA RFI/EMC Standard requirements.
