Electromagnetic interference and compatibility for the autonomous airport

Reference number
Coordinator Luleå tekniska universitet - Luleå tekniska universitet Inst f system- och rymdteknik
Funding from Vinnova SEK 500 000
Project duration December 2022 - November 2023
Status Ongoing
Venture Advanced and innovative digitalisation

Purpose and goal

The feasibility study will elaborate on electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in an autonomous and electrified airport environment. The aim is to create a consortium and plan a project with the goal to understand and manage EMI/ EMC in the airport environment linked to the introduction of electric aircrafts and infrastructure such as solar energy, autonomous systems, machines and devices. This will create a foundation for further work with autonomy and electrification in an airport environment where EMI and EMC issues are integral parts.

Expected results and effects

The direct result from the feasibility study is a project plan and a well-connected consortium that shall be able to implement a subsequent project. An additional important result is that the work will provide an overview of the work currently being done by various parties regarding EMI and EMC challenges in the airport environment. The feasibility study and a subsequent project will in the long run also contribute to the creation of a clear and quantitative picture of requirements, as well as form routines and working methods, for work with EMI/EMC in an airport environment.

Planned approach and implementation

The work will be conducted in the form of studies of available documents, meetings and workshops with participating parties, as well as study visits to relevant environments. Four areas will be considered for a continuation project: - Measurements in different scenarios to create a base of understanding for other areas. - Experiments in an active airport environment as a basis for rule and standardization work. - Work with rules, standards, and processes nationally as well as internationally. - Future requirements on monitoring the EMI environment with flexible measurement systems.
