The problems connected with measurements of conducted disturbances emission for on-board devices installed in aircraft have been presented in this paper. The electromagnetic environment of aircraft has been characterized. Referring to the requirements determined in Section 21 of the RTCA/DO-160G standard, the categories of avionics systems, acceptable disturbance values for individual categories, construction and requirements for test setup have been described. For the dedicated drive for the unmanned aerial vehicle, the results of the emission measurement were presented using the elaborated scripts in the Rohde&Schwarz EMC32 program.
