This test plan is to provide a procedure for the measurement of on-board radio frequency interference resulting from the operation of on-board radars (S-Band and X-Band). Field intensity measurements in the range of 1 to 10 GHz will be made using calibrated test instrumentation to determine possible adverse effects to the operation of the future installation of a Maritime L-Band Shipboard Satellite Communications Terminal, for use with the ATS-F and MARISAT Communications Satellites. A measurement will be made of power line conducted interference to determine the degree of power line isolation that may be required. There is also consideration of interference to the radars by the proposed L-Band terminals and observations will be made of the radar displays while L-Band transmitter operation is simulated. These tests will be made aboard the American Alliance container ship, United States Lines.
