Survivability, Vulnerabilty, and Assessment Directorate (SVAD) - Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E3) Test Facilities
The SVAD operates extensive Electromagnetic (EM) Environmental Effects (E3) Test facilities to support the requirements for test and evaluation of weapons systems while being subjected to electromagnetic environments.
WSMR´s growing, diverse customer base now includes multi-national companies from the private sector, leading research and development universities, Department of Defense (DoD) and other U.S. Government agencies, and various friendly, foreign governments. The critical core of WSMR is a seasoned staff of scientists, engineers, technicians, and other professionals whose consummate skills in comprehensive survivability and vulnerability simulation, test, evaluation, and assessment are coupled with their dedication to providing complete, quality customer support. Specific areas of expertise include nuclear and EW/EO/EM effects simulation, test, evaluation, and assessment; life cycle survivability assessment; transient radiation effects on electronics (TREE) testing; and test technology, instrumentation, and maintenance of a comprehensive survivability database. The EW/EO/EM test facilities include the Electromagnetic Pulse and Electromagnetic Radiation facilities at WSMR, the Pulsed Laser Vulnerability Test System (PLVTS) at WSMR´s High Energy Laser Systems Test Facility (HELSTF) site, and the Lightning Test Facility (LTF), also at WSMR.
These facilities, coupled with the equally impressive technical and engineering capability of the WSMR professional staff, provide the basis for the Directorate´s established competency in EW/EO/EM effects simulation, testing evaluation, and assessment.
