TPED testing specifies recommendations for aircraft operators, aircraft manufacturers, equipment manufacturers, and maintenance service providers in how to establish an aircraft as TPED tolerant and how to maintain the TPED tolerance throughout the aircraft’s lifecycle.
We test against aircraft tolerance to interference from portable electronic devices, including transmitting portable electronic devices.
Frequencia provides standard requirements for interference path loss and aircraft system immunity that can be used to demonstrate PED tolerance as part of aircraft certification.
We look at specific interference path loss targets for aircraft to eliminate the effects of TPED spurious emissions on aircraft radio receivers. It looks into specific RF immunity requirements for the exposed aircraft systems to ensure they are unaffected by TPED intentional transmissions. For aircraft that successfully meet the recommendations in this report, aircraft operators have high assurance that the aircraft systems even in critical phases of flight, will be fully operational.
Testing is independent of the class of aircraft; they apply to small and large airplanes and small and large rotorcraft.
