Abstract: We provide detailed descriptions of recent radiated emissions measurements conducted by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (NTIA/ITS) in Boulder, Colorado. ITS engineers performed a comprehensive series of radiated emission measurements on the Shore-Line Monitoring System (SLiMS). The SLiMS system is currently being developed by Time-Domain Acquisition Holdings® (TDC) under the sponsorship of the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC). The measurement results demonstrate both low emission levels, consistent with existing U.S. electromagnetic compatibility requirements and a low potential for causing interference to incumbent systems. A high level of precision is required to perform the characterization.
