MIL-STD-461G
The largest proposed change is adding a new test section for Electrostatic Discharge. (ESD). Mr. Fred Heather,
Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E3) Lead for the U.S. Governments F-35 Joint Strike Fighter
Program has created an ESD test section. He was not able to submit this section in time to have it
incorporated into Revision F.
There is a high probability the ESD section will be included within the next MIL-STD-461 revision. Mr. Heather
believes the MIL-STD-464 does not provides adequate direction to conduct ESD testing.

PAR 1688
This is a potential new standard. It basically applies MIL-STD-461 type
testing to sub-components and modules.

There will be individual test changes as appropriate to test the specimens


an example is RE102. The method right now is near field measurements.

Fred Heather is looking for volunteers to participate within the standard design group
Right now everything is being geared to NAV-Air since their committee is the only
group within the committee. The draft is available from the link below:
