EMI Testing on Space Systems

The use of FFT-based measuring receivers is motivated by reducing the scan time by several orders of magnitude without degradation of accuracy and to get more insight due to the possibility of applying longer measurement times. Comparison measurements on a nanosatellite were performed using conventional EMI receiver and FFT-based time-domain scanning technique.


Jens Medler joined Rohde & Schwarz, Munich, Germany, a company specializing in test equipment and radio equipment in 1996. He is responsible for the standardization and application support of EMI test receivers and accessories for both hardware and software and is active member of various CISPR Subcommittees since 1999. He also holds a senior membership in the IEEE EMC Society and is acting vice chair of the societies Standards Development and Education Committee.

This includes CIS/A on EMC measurement instrumentation and methods, CIS/D on equipment on vehicles and internal combustion engine powered devices and CIS/I on information technology equipment, multimedia equipment and receivers. Since October 2017 he is acting as convenor of CIS/A WG2; the CISPR Working Group on EMC measurement methods, statistical techniques and uncertainty. He is recipient of the IEC 1906 Award.
