SCIF Enclosure Shielding

MAJR Products offers a variety of shielding products that can be applied specifically to SCIF, or Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, applications. 

These applications are required to meet TEMPEST and other military EMC specifications such as MIL-STD-188, ICD 705 and MIL-STD-461.

How is SCIF Shielding Unique?

SCIFs are Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (pronounced “skiff”). A SCIF can be a secure room or data center that guards against electronic surveillance and suppresses data leakage of sensitive security and/or military information. 

SCIFs are meticulously designed to be impervious to EMI and RFI from external sources. They must also be incapable of generating internal electromagnetic fields that might propagate sensitive information to external devices and actors.

Depending on the size and scope of the SCIF, there may also be multiple areas inside the enclosure with different levels of security. These areas must also be appropriately secured against potential EMI and RFI sources, signal emissions, and interference.

This level of information security requires the entire SCIF, including all openings, penetrations, and apertures, to be securely protected and sealed against internal and external transmissions, EMI, and RFI signals.
