Michael Hiles

Mr. Hiles has 40+ years’ experience as a founder, investor and executive manager of engineering and technology businesses. In addition to 24 years as CEO of EMF/EMI companies, his business activities include such diverse products as Nuclear Facility Access Control, Television Production and Satellite-based communications systems and technology which reduces emissions from coal-burning power plants.

Mr. Hiles was an early pioneer in EMF/EMI. In 1986 he founded NoRad, a manufacturer of EMF shielding and measurement devices for video monitors and sensitive equipment and in1995, FMS was organized, combining the NoRad technology and expertise with the results of a 2-year, large-scale EMF shielding test program at The Southern California Edison Company. FMS was awarded a technology patent for novel use of shielding material and negotiated a technology agreement to develop conductive EMF shielding technology from Stockholm Energy for use in the US.

FMS has continued to expand on its technical base during the more than 20 years of its operating history and is an acknowledged leader in the markets and industries that it serves.

Mr. Hiles and FMS frequently contribute pro bono to EMF policy discussions for schools and governments. He studied electrical engineering at the University of Wisconsin and has completed professional studies in electrical engineering, business administration and economics at UCLA. He is a member of IEEE, BEMS, and SMPTE.



FMS as the EMF/EMI Consultant designed and installed the passive and active mitigation systems for this newly established interdisciplinary organization under the Office of Research of the University of California Irvine (UCI) to house state of the art electron-microscope labs (4 imaging cells). The project required analysis of interference potential of all internal and external emission sources, which included vehicle and facility elevators (DC), broadband electrical system (AC) sources, etc.

Harvard LISE

FMS was engaged as the project’s EMI Consultant by the project architect (Wilson Architects) to conduct an electromagnetic field (EMF) analysis in an existing laboratory (shell space) located in the basement level of the Harvard CNS facility.


Seattle Children’s Research Institute is currently in the construction phase of ”Building Cure”, a 540,000 square foot research building, which will be dedicated to developing therapies for children with diseases such as Cancer, Type 1 Diabetes and Sickle Cell Anemia.

Un. of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Electrical and Computer Engineering Bldg.

FMS was engaged to conduct a thorough assessment of the building’s design for EMI interference threat concerns to sensitive research equipment. A document review and extensive 3-Dimension computer simulation studies were conducted to evaluate EMF emissions from the building’s electrical distribution, mechanical and other systems.


Over its 20 years, FMS has successfully completed hundreds of EMI projects which included a diverse range of consulting and mitigation services.
