European researchers seek to prevent electromagnetic interference to aircraft.

A EUROPEAN Union (EU)-funded research project is seeking to limit the exposure of civilian airliners to electromagnetic interference, which can cause particular problems to navigation systems. The Euro 17.8 million HIRF-SE (high intensity radiated field synthetic environment) project is developing computer-based modelling able to spot and predict interference from natural or synthetic electromagnetic sources on or off-board. Its scientists especially want to help designers minimise the exposure of electrical systems to electromagnetism ahead of building a plane. "That will improve safety and save manufacturers significant amounts of time and money," said Professor Andrew Marvin, from project participant Britain's University of York. *
