As far as the SLQ-32 is concerned, I didnt think it would be an issue. Since elecromagnetic radiation travels so fast, the transmission would pass the entire length of the ship aft of the SPY-1F transmitter in less than 1 millisecond. Also I thought it might be possible to program a notch filter that would basically allow the SLQ-32 to ignore SPY transmit waveforms.
For teh engines, I orignially thought two seperate smaller engine rooms would be better, but now I think that a single engine room would be better to reduce redundnacy and manpower requirements.

Can you clarify? I'd understood EMI to be about magnitude and freq of energy received at a given point more than speed-of-light limitations?
Also, I don't know what frequencies SLQ-32 works on, but surely you'd want it to be sensitive to at least some of the frequencies that SPY-1F would be transmitting, as it'd need that to know what \ where to jam? If it ignores targeting radar freqs how can it jam them?
I'm quite new to this sort of thing myself, so honestly keen to correct any misunderstandings I've had...

No, I agree on both counts. I'm sure you could filter out the SPY-1 emissions to a considerable extent, but I suspect it would not work quite as well as simply using structural shape to handle the problem.
