    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which of these activities would generate the most electrostatic voltage?

    • A.

      Working at a bench.

    • B.

      Walking across carpet.

    • C.

      Walking across a vinyl floor.

    • D.

      Picking up a common plastic bag.

    Correct Answer
    B. Walking across carpet.
    Explanation
    Walking across carpet generates the most electrostatic voltage because carpets tend to build up a large amount of static electricity due to friction. As a person walks across the carpet, their body picks up electrons from the carpet, creating a charge imbalance. This charge imbalance results in a high voltage difference, or electrostatic voltage. Walking across a vinyl floor or picking up a common plastic bag may also generate some electrostatic voltage, but it would be lower compared to walking across carpet. Working at a bench is not mentioned to generate any electrostatic voltage in the given options.

    Which distinct region of the electromagnetic pulse is produced by the interactions between the weapon products and the earth’s atmosphere?

    • A.

      Secondary.

    • B.

      Radiated.

    • C.

      Plasma.

    • D.

      Source.

    Correct Answer
    D. Source.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Source." The question asks about the distinct region of the electromagnetic pulse produced by the interactions between the weapon products and the earth's atmosphere. The term "source" refers to the origin or point of emission of the electromagnetic pulse. It is the initial location where the pulse is generated before it propagates through the atmosphere. The other options, such as secondary, radiated, and plasma, do not specifically refer to the region produced by the interactions between weapon products and the earth's atmosphere.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What source region electromagnetic pulse region has a primarily vertical electromagnetic pulse electric field and what structures are affected?

    • A.

      Radiated; antennas and bore site feedhorns.

    • B.

      Plasma; antennas and bore site feedhorns.

    • C.

      Secondary; cables and ground wires.

    • D.

      Source; cables and ground wires.

    Correct Answer
    A. Radiated; antennas and bore site feedhorns.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Radiated; antennas and bore site feedhorns." In an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) event, the radiated source region produces a primarily vertical electric field. This means that the electric field is oriented in a vertical direction. As a result, antennas and bore site feedhorns, which are components used in communication systems, are affected by this vertical electric field. The EMP can induce high voltages and currents in these structures, potentially damaging or disrupting their functionality.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following statements is true concerning shielding?

    • A.

      Cables should be of unshielded construction.

    • B.

      Only ventilation ports are shielded along the walls.

    • C.

      Sensitive equipment will be located within the shielded barrier.

    • D.

      All power lines supplying shielded areas do not require filters.

    Correct Answer
    C. Sensitive equipment will be located within the shielded barrier.
    Explanation
    Sensitive equipment needs to be protected from electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI). Shielding is a method used to reduce or eliminate these interferences. By locating sensitive equipment within a shielded barrier, it is protected from external electromagnetic and radio frequency signals that can disrupt its proper functioning. This ensures that the equipment operates reliably and without any interference from external sources.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Little or no variations in the strength of the interfering signal when moving the receiving antenna for short distance normally indicates

    • A.

      Enemy jamming.

    • B.

      Internal interference.

    • C.

      Radio receiver trouble.

    • D.

      Unintentional interference.

    Correct Answer
    A. Enemy jamming.
    Explanation
    Little or no variations in the strength of the interfering signal when moving the receiving antenna for a short distance normally indicates enemy jamming. This means that regardless of the antenna's location, the interfering signal remains consistently strong, suggesting intentional interference by an adversary. This is in contrast to internal interference, which would typically fluctuate depending on the antenna's position. Radio receiver trouble would cause issues with the reception itself, rather than a consistent interfering signal. Unintentional interference would likely vary in strength as the antenna is moved.

    What type of equipment often generates many spurious emissions?

    • A.

      Slow tuning receiver.

    • B.

      Rapid tuning receiver.

    • C.

      Slow tuning transmitter.

    • D.

      Rapid tuning transmitter.

    Correct Answer
    D. Rapid tuning transmitter.
    Explanation
    A rapid tuning transmitter often generates many spurious emissions. Spurious emissions refer to unwanted signals that are unintentionally generated by a transmitter and can interfere with other electronic equipment or communication systems. The rapid tuning capability of a transmitter allows it to quickly change frequencies, but this can also result in the generation of unwanted emissions. In contrast, a slow tuning transmitter would take more time to change frequencies and is less likely to produce as many spurious emissions.

  • 12. 

    What plays a major role in a conductor’s ability to minimizing compromising emanations?

    • A.

      Distance and angles.

    • B.

      Distance and separation.

    • C.

      Induction and grounding.

    • D.

      Induction and impedance.

    Correct Answer
    A. Distance and angles.
    Explanation
    The ability to minimize compromising emanations in a conductor is influenced by the distance and angles. By increasing the distance between conductors, the electromagnetic fields generated by each conductor will have less interaction, reducing the chances of compromising emanations. Additionally, the angles at which the conductors are placed can also affect the electromagnetic fields and their interactions. Properly positioning the conductors at specific angles can help minimize compromising emanations.

    What secondary cell is prone to the memory effect?

    • A.

      Nickel cadmium.

    • B.

      Carbon zinc.

    • C.

      Lead-acid.

    • D.

      Lithium.

    Correct Answer
    A. Nickel cadmium.
    Explanation
    Nickel cadmium (NiCd) is the secondary cell that is prone to the memory effect. The memory effect is a phenomenon where the battery "remembers" the shorter discharge cycles and loses its capacity to deliver full charge. This occurs when the battery is repeatedly charged and discharged without being fully discharged. NiCd batteries are particularly susceptible to this effect, which can result in reduced battery capacity and overall performance. Carbon zinc, lead-acid, and lithium batteries do not exhibit the memory effect to the same extent as NiCd batteries.
