MIL-STD-461 CS106, CS114, CS115, CS116

CS106 is applicable to submarine and surface ship equipment and subsystem AC and DC input power leads. The generator delivers a transient pulse in the microsecond range, with repetition up to 15 pulses per second.

CS114 is a swept bulk cable injection which simulates currents that will be developed on platform cabling from electromagnetic fields generated by antenna transmissions.

CS115 uses a fast trapezoidal pulse to excite natural resonances associated with cables. The basic concern is to protect equipment from fast rise and fall time transients that may be present due to platform switching operations and external transient environments such as lightning and electromagnetic pulses.

CS116 defines damped sinusoid transients at several fixed frequencies to simulate electrical current and voltage waveforms occurring in platforms from excitation of natural resonances.

Montena has developed a software controlled test bench covering all these test requirements. Thanks to a high frequency switching module, the calibration and measurement phases can be performed without any change of cabling to the test setup. Montena proposes up to 17 frequencies for the CS116 test, enhancing the frequency coverage and test results.


  • One single generator output for CS 114, 115 and 116 enables automated tests
  • One amplifier for all CS114 tests, starting from 4 kHz up to 400 MHz. Software license available also for RTCA DO-160G Section 20 (CS), using the same hardware.
  • Automatic calibration for each test and for the full frequency range
  • Automatic configuration of the measurement equipment
  • Calibration and test reports automatically generated
