electromagnetic radiation hazards (RADHAZ or EMR hazards)
Hazards caused by a transmitter/antenna installation that generates electromagnetic radiation in the vicinity of ordnance, personnel, or fueling operations in excess of established safe levels or increases the existing levels to a hazardous level; or a personnel, fueling, or ordnance installation located in an area that is illuminated by electromagnetic radiation at a level that is hazardous to the planned operations or occupancy. These hazards will exist when an electromagnetic field of sufficient intensity is generated to:
  • (a) Induce or otherwise couple currents and/or voltages of magnitudes large enough to initiate electro-explosive devices or other sensitive explosive components of weapon systems, ordnance, or explosive devices.
  • (b) Cause harmful or injurious effects to humans and wildlife.
  • (c) Create sparks having sufficient magnitude to ignite flammable mixtures of materials that must be handled in the affected area. [JP 1-02]
