By producing user-friendly test equipment for users who would prefer to maintain their own facilities, verify compliance of their products before delivery to their customers, or conduct their own RF/Pulse testing, SARA paves a path to affordable independent testing. Our products pay for themselves within a few uses, when compared to the cost of paying an outside company to perform compliance / acceptance / verification testing.
SARA produces several unique and customizable EMP and RF Shielding Effectiveness test related products. Available in small or large quantities, our products are designed to meet the demands of your applications.
SARA offers an easily configurable Portable Appendix A Test Set (PAATS) designed to provide MIL-STD compliant shielding effectiveness (SE) measurements. This system is fully compliant with the MIL-STD required dynamic range across the required frequency span (10 kHz – 1 GHz) and can be utilized for precertification, certification, hardness assurance, and hardness surveillance.
When combined with the optional HF-SA-17l antennas (add link to), the coupled system produces a complete, turn-key, MIL-STD compliant test set. The PAATS graphical interface guides the user through the MIL-STD SE test beginning at calibration and culminating in report quality SE graphs, allowing the user to produce quality real-time documentation. In addition, PAATS includes a sniffer application, so that trouble frequencies can be localized spatially and red-tagged for re-work.
All PAATS units include a 1-year limited warranty, operations manuals, and optional on-site training at customer facilities. SARA’s PAATS systems are fabricated in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
SARA offers the Shielding Effectiveness Test Set (SETS) for low-risk, high-confidence HEMP survivability and EMSEC assessment. SETS is a portable, turn-key testing system that quantifies the shielding effectiveness of enclosures, panels, racks, containers, etc. with dynamic range of at least 100 dB.
SETS is available in two models: SETS-10 and SETS-18, with operating frequencies of 1 GHz – 10 GHz and 1 GHz – 18 GHz, respectively. Both models work with the same SARA-developed software and antenna set (link to). Our SETS software produces report quality SE graphs, allowing the user to produce real-time documentation during testing.
All SETS units include a 1-year limited warranty, operations manuals, and optional on-site training at customer facilities. SARA’s SETS systems are fabricated in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
SARA offers a Shielding Effectiveness Automated Monitoring System (SEAMS) designed to provide a fully automated hardness surveillance system, fulfilling the MIL-STD SELDS requirement. SEAMS is capable of nearly continuous monitoring of a shielded enclosure. It reports measurements in an easy-to-interpret, chronologically stamped data format over a standard IP network infrastructure.
SEAMS is highly customizable and can be tailored to meet almost any need. It can be configured in size and used as a permanent installation in standard telecom or server cabinets, controlled by a host computer running the SEAMS Measurement and Reporting Software (SMaRS). The system can also be modified to operate as an “on the shelf” system.
All SEAMS units include a 1-year limited warranty, operations manuals, and optional on-site training at customer facilities. SARA’s SEAMS systems are fabricated in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
