Training Modules

Operating in the Electromagnetic Environment

Monday 25th March 2024 from 10:00am to 4:00pm

This is the third of five CPD training modules; designed as a comprehensive introduction to working in the Electromagnetic Environment to be delivered at Loughborough University and online.

This module is aimed at industry and academic participants who have an interest in developing knowledge and understanding of basic analogue modulation, electromagnetic interference and compatibility, electronic jamming and the radio spectrum regulatory framework in the UK and abroad. The module is for new graduates or experienced personnel who may wish to revise their basic knowledge or who may want to move into this area from other domains.

Third Module, (Operating in the Electromagnetic Environment) intended learning outcomes:

  • Know the basis of analogue modulation schemes used for telecommunications links.
  • Understand the regulation of the radio spectrum in the international context and legal aspects of operating in the UK.
  • Understand the electromagnetic immunity characteristics of electronic circuits and communications devices.
  • Know in a broad sense how third parties may interfere with RF systems.
  • Use laboratory test equipment, such as signal generators, spectrum analysers and oscilloscopes, to investigate types of analogue modulation.

This module does not require security clearance to attend, however participants must apply and receive a formal invitation prior to attendance.

The module is free to attend.
Deadline for in-person attendance registration: 18th March 2024
