The FAA Handbook presents a set of recommended practices on how to collect, write, validate, and organize requirements. It attempts to bring together the best ideas from several approaches, organize them into a coherent whole, and illustrate them with concrete examples that make their benefits clear.
The Handbook is targeted to the domain of real-time, embedded systems and specifically to the avionics industry. It describes a set of recommended practices in which basic concepts can be practiced in isolation, but reinforce each other when practiced as a whole. These practices allow developers to progress from an initial, high-level overview of a system to a detailed description of its behavioral and performance requirements. Due to the growing importance of software in avionics systems, these practices emphasize techniques to ease the transition from system to software requirements.
Concrete examples are used throughout the Handbook to make the concepts clear, but there are many other formats that could be used to obtain the same objectives. It is expected that most organizations wanting to use these practices will want to modify them, perhaps significantly, to integrate them with their existing processes and tools.
Devices used onboard a ship are exposed to harsh electromagnetic environments, whether in the propulsion, deck or bridge area of a ship. Testing of such devices for Electro-Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) is therefore very important. Otherwise, manufacturers can face difficulties during the certification and procurement stages.
EMC testing and certification services to ensure your marine products comply with relevant international standards and regulations is a MUST!
GDS Engineering R&D does not perform these tests yet; however, have the information on design and test knowledge. The requirements include the international conventions as agreed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS).
Currently, we have observed that these tests are conducted by reputable agencies like ELEMENT.
The testing laboratories use the following standards to test the marine electronic, digital or electrical devices for certification to IMO SOLAS requirements, guidance, or recommendations:
Lloyds Register Test Spec No 1
DNV Certification Notes 2.4

Support and guidance from the initial design stage
The use of composite materials in ship construction together with new radio technologies and high power electronics are changing the requirements and design goals that need to be achieved to ensure electromagnetic compatibility. Element is well placed with our knowledge of both standards and the target environment to provide detailed guidance of the best compliance strategies to adopt for your marine products.
CE Marking and Wheel Mark certification
Element performs EMC testing in conjunction with climatic and environmental test requirements to meet dedicated marine standards and be compliant with CE marking legislation. We make sure your marine equipment complies with the relevant EMC standards listed in the Marine Equipment Directive to help you achieve the Wheel Mark certification.
EMC test plans
Our test facilities for both EMC and environmental provide a comprehensive portfolio of tests to ensure that whatever your marine equipment is, and no matter where it’s located, we have a test solution that matches your needs.
Coordinated approach to testing for global market access
Our expertise comes from testing thousands of different products every year, and our industry-leading capacity allows us appropriate coordination of testing, so your marine equipment meets common standards of safety and performance across the EU and is accepted for entry into world markets.
IMO Model Course Exercise recommends students learn the weather change effect on engine performance.
GDS Engineering R&D developed a modern Engine Room Simulator (ERS) and it is in use by various research and training institutions. GDS ERS, called SERS, includes all engine room, ship, and environmental paramaters to demonstrate the weather effect to engine performance while onboard systems are maintaining their status with the displayed parameters. This scenario study is a predefined and set in the ERS for instructors to directly apply in their STCW Management Level Exercises. Student Workbooks accomodate this exercise with specficic forms to fill by the trainees.
