C6.5. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS (E3) AND SPECTRUM
C6.5.1. The PM shall design all electric
or electronic systems/equipment to be mutually compatible with other
electric or electronic systems/equipment and the operational electromagnetic
environment. All systems shall meet operational performance requirements.
The PM shall design ordnance and associated systems to preclude inadvertent
ignition, and to perform effectively, during or after exposure to the
operational electromagnetic environment. For additional information, see DoD
Directive 3222.3 (reference (cv)
C6.5.2. The following applies to all
electromagnetic spectrum-dependent systems and equipment, including
commercial and non-developmental items:
C126.96.36.199. In accordance with OMB
Circular A-11 (reference (b)
), PMs shall determine system spectrum
supportability prior to initiating cost estimates for development or
C188.8.131.52. Systems shall comply with
statutory spectrum supportability management requirements (47 U.S.C.
Chapter 8 (reference (cw))) and the
National Telecommunications and Information Administration Manual of
Regulations and Procedures for Federal Radio Frequency Management (47
C.F.R. 300.1 (reference (cx)
shall address requirements to achieve appropriate international spectrum
C184.108.40.206. Design criteria for systems
that use the electromagnetic spectrum (spectrum dependent) must take into
consideration other current and future DoD spectrum dependent systems, as
well as, current and projected government/non-DoD and civil spectrum use.
C220.127.116.11. The DoD Components shall
obtain radio frequency spectrum guidance from the Military
Communications-Electronics Board (MCEB) (DoD Directive 4650.1 (reference (cy)
C6.5.3. The PM shall forward
requirements for foreign spectrum support (i.e., DD Form 1494 via U.S.
Supplement 1, Allied Communication Publication 190 (reference (cz)
available through the U.S. MCEB, Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Pentagon, Room
1E833, Washington, DC 20310) through established channels (e.g., Service
Spectrum Management Organization) to the MCEB to initiate host-nation coordination with
nations where deployment of the system or support equipment is planned for
outside of the continental United States.
