CPTAS testing ensures that mobile platforms undergo First of Type assessments by an accredited test facility

CPTAS testing ensures that mobile platforms are tested thoroughly for TEMPEST emanations. Tests are performed on only one example of the platform.  Test facilities which have been accredited to test First of Type mobile vehicle platforms can be found here and should be contacted directly if you have any questions.

In addition to this initial test, platforms must also undergo TEMPEST Production Assurance Testing (TPAT) to ensure a consistent build standard between platforms of the same type. These limited tests are carried out on the production run to ensure that TEMPEST integrity is maintained throughout.
