THE SHIP ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENT--A KEY IN THE SAFE OPERATION OF FUTURE AUTOMATION SYSTEMS

This paper covers work which has been carried out at the British Ship Research Association during the last two years on the physical, hazardous, and electromagnetic environment onboard merchant ships as part of the Automation Development Project financially sponsored by British Shipbuilders. This work identified a trend towards the use of electronic digital equipment, in the 1980's, in environmentally severe parts of merchant ships and highlighted the use of electrically sensitive equipment in areas of potentially high electric field strength. Details are given of shipboard measurements onboard a 30,000 dwt petroleum products tanker aimed at establishing interference levels above and below deck from ship radar and telecommunication equipment. The trial provided some of the data necessary for the development of an overall ship electromagnetic specification. Order from BSRA as No. 54,428.
