Analysis and measurements have been performed to justify the use of Commercial Off The Shelf products in combination with the power network of a naval vessel. It was concluded that the onboard supply is well controlled and suitable for such applications, except for harmonic distortion, which exceeds the limits in civil and military standards. Measurements were first performed without the integrated mast on the vessel. The integrated mast contains a variety of antennas and control cabinets, which could have an additional effect on the power quality of the island network configuration present inside the vessel. During a second measurement series, power quality measurements with respect to civil and military standards have been performed in order to verify the effect of the integrated mast. It was shown that the naval power network of the vessel
including integrated mast, which is normally designed and tested against military standards only, also meets civil standards suitable for the placement of COTS equipment.
