Our principal consultant, Ian Pocock, is a Chartered Engineer, a member of the Institution of Engineering & Technology and the Energy Institute. He has spent 23 years working in the field of radio, telecommunications and electromagnetics. Ian has been involved in the UKAS accreditation of three test facilities. Well known through the defence EMC and Radio Hazard community, Ian most recently managed the EMC/RadHaz Group at Thales Missile Electronics.
Our associate consultant, Chris Alder (CEng MIET) has many years experience in the design leadership and project management of RF sensor systems for MoD aircraft and missile platforms operating in very harsh EMC and RFI environments, which demand that suitable protection measures form part of the initial design. Consequently Chris is well placed to comment and advise on good design practice for EMC and RFI protection. Chris Alder’s RF system experience covers the spectrum 0.5 to 100GHz.
Drawing on this experience we offer consultancy on a wide range of related topics (see our Service List).
The field of electromagnetics is often seen as a black-art; with our assistance you can navigate through the minefield, while minimising your costs. EMC is often seen as a final test discipline, this is false, it is a design discipline. As such it should be considered as early as possible in the design process, reducing the risk of costly remedial processes and redesign at a later stage. Adherence to a set of design rules can mitigate the high risk of test failure. We offer all of the support you need to take a product from concept through to testing with a high degree of confidence.
Peak Electromagnetics have working relationships with a number of test facilities and equipment hire companies around the country, with which we can liaise to ensure the most cost effective trials strategy for your product.
