Why is it important?

Textile materials are flexible and lightweight and can be used to make garments that can protect the wearers from EM radiation.


The paper describes the methodology used to created the knitted fabrics, and how the measurements were taken using a Faraday cage, emitting devices and signal receiver. Other fabrics tests were also carried out and which are important and will affect the EMSE.
