Topic: MIL-STD-461 – Calibration Verification
MIL-STD-461G introduced several changes in the calibration verification requirements to check measurement systems and establish limitations on applying susceptibility interference test levels. Steve will review these changes and discuss how to incorporate these requirements into your test program. His discussion includes identification of some pitfalls that exist when using the verification checks in place of periodic calibration for passive equipment as permitted in the current standard. Along with the technical discussion, he will examine how to use these checks in your laboratory record keeping. Laboratory personnel and managers will benefit from this event that provides an understanding of why we are doing the checks in addition to how they merge into the testing.
