Aerospace industry is under the continuous pressure due to an increasing demand for new services and technologies,  higher integration level of electronics and reducing overall mass and volume of systems. New technologies and trends are calling for new approaches and methods to achieve compatibility between a huge variety of equipment. In the view of traditional verification approach from equipment to subsystem to system level, the extended use of commercial off  the shelf components and the miniaturization into the Cube Sat standards present new challenges to the EMC society. In order to avoid retesting, fixing or redesign of already integrated systems, EMC engineers are seeking to improve the means of forecasting possible compatibility issues and validating subsystem designs. To achieve these goals a close  collaboration of industry, academia and agencies is required.
