2.1 Issue of Document
The following document of the issue in effect on date of invitation for bid or request for proposal, forms a part of the standard to the extent specified herein.
MIL-E-6051 Electromagnetic Compatibility Requirements, Systems
(Copies of specifications, standards, drawings, and publications required by contractors in connection with specific procurement functions should be obtained from the procuring activity or as directed by the contracting officer.)
The only difference between the two revisions was that in 1553B the references to MIL-STD-461 and MIL-STD-462 were removed (i.e., both electromagnetic interference requirements and measurement standards). MIL-E-6051 “System Electromagnetic Compatibility Requirements” is still applicable in 1553B to define the wiring and cabling provisions of the specification (see MIL-STD-1553B, paragraph 18.104.22.168.5.3).
The definition section of the standard has been expanded and reordered in 1553B. The purpose for the change was to address definitions in order of complexity and to describe new functions, modes, and devices. A comparison of the definition included in 1553A and 1553B is presented in table II-2.1.
