Above DeckAn area on ships which is not considered to be 'below deck' as defined herein.
Below DeckAn area on ships which is surrounded by a metallic structure, or an area which provides significant attenuation to electromagnetic radiation, such as the metal hull or superstructure of a surface ship, the pressure hull of a submarine and the screened rooms in non-metallic ships.
External InstallationAn equipment location on a platform which is exposed to the external electromagnetic environment (EME), such as an aircraft cockpit which does not use electrically conductive treatments on the canopy or windscreen
Flight-Line EquipmentAny support equipment that is attached to or used next to an aircraft during pre-flight or postflight operations, such as uploading or downloading data, maintenance diagnostics, or equipment functional testing.
Internal InstallationAn equipment location on a platform which is totally inside an electrically conductive structure, such as a typical avionics bay in aluminum skin aircraft.
Non-Developmental Item (NDI):Non-developmental item is a broad, generic term that covers material available from a wide variety of sources both industry and Government with little or no development effort required by the procuring activity
Safety CriticalA category of subsystems and equipment whose degraded performance could result in loss of life or loss of vehicle or platform
Test Setup BoundaryThe test setup boundary includes all enclosures of the Equipment Under Test (EUT) and the 2 meters of exposed interconnecting leads (except for leads which are shorter in the actual installation) and power leads required by 4.3.8.6.
