    Abstract

    A transportable reverberation chamber with vibrating walls to create high field strength has been developed, called Vibrating Intrinsic Reverberation Chamber (VIRC). It creates a statistically uniform electromagnetic field without the use of a rotating mode stirrer, resulting in a better homogeneity compared to conventional reverberation chambers. The VIRC can be used for high field strength EMI and HIRF testing, or for transfer measurements from outside to the cabin or flight deck. The VIRC creates an isotropic, uniform field so it can be used for finding the weakest spots in a system, because all objects are illuminated in all directions.
