Course detail: High Intensity Radiated Fields (HIRF) Certification and Compliance
This course covers the design concepts required to ensure all aspects of aircraft HIRF electrical wiring, installations, and aircraft-level systems are safe for operation. It also covers the typical certification process for HIRF from a very practical, step-by-step perspective and examine all steps used by aircraft OEMs to show compliance to HIRF regulations. The 14 CFR 25.1317 for transport category airplanes will be used as the baseline regulation. A review of FAA Advisory Circulars and practical applications of the information will be presented, and teams will be selected to simulate the HIRF certification process. HIRF requirements for aircraft maintenance and inspection will also be discussed. The course will also include a high-level overview for electromagnetic effects areas; topics discussed include electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), precipitation static (P-static), lightning, ESD, and electrical bonding requirements. An overview of the new requirements for electrical wiring Interconnection system (EWIS) will also be addressed.
- HIRF best practices
- Team HIRF workshops
- DER/UM HIRF requirements
- HIRF examples and practical applications
