RAF Waddington TEMPEST Test Team is an NCSC accredited test facility testing First of Type mobile (vehicle) platforms under the Platform TEMPEST Accreditation Scheme (CPTAS).
CPTAS testing ensures that mobile platforms are tested thoroughly for TEMPEST emanations and they are performed on only one example of the platform.
In addition to this initial test, platforms must undergo TEMPEST Production Assurance Testing (TPAT) to ensure the build standard is consistent between platforms of the same type. The limited tests are carried out on the production run to ensure that TEMPEST integrity is maintained throughout.
For information on TPAT testing contact the Test Facility direct.
