Radio Frequency Compatibility — a Command Responsibility 630236
This is an up-to-date report on the Navy’s problems resulting from radio frequency interference. The Navy’s approach is to preclude or minimize the interference problem by proper system design during research and development, by proper frequency management, and by engineered installations.
The term “radio frequency compatibility” as used is defined. The background and evolution of the radio frequency interference problem is explained. Shipboard interference problem areas coupled with command responsibility are set forth with interesting examples.
