Defense & Government describes solutions for applications in the military and government markets, for EMC testing (MIL STD), C³ Centers (Control, Command, Communication), preventative protection against temporary emanation of spurious emissions (TEMPEST), COMSEC and protection against the electromagnetic pulse (EMP).
The Defense and Government market is driven by the responsibilities of national integrity and security. Most often, there are intelligence security barriers that restrict how much information can be provided, which can sometimes be in conflict with what is required to design an appropriate facility. In general, highly customized, "protective measure" solutions are needed for COMSEC, TEMPEST and EMP. Existing buildings are often very old and structurally not favorable to modular steel shielding techniques. In these cases, "architectural" shielding solutions are available.
