Military and Aerospace Systems must comply with Environmental Qualification testing based on MIL-STD-810G requirements. MIL-STD-810 is applied to Department of Defense (DoD) procurements for equipment and subsystems but the standard specifically requires tailoring of the standard for the application.

MIL-STD-810 test methods will be examined with an eye toward adapting the various methods for a variety of applications. The presentations include selecting appropriate methods and tailoring those methods for the specific products. This course offers critical information for military compliance professionals, testing industry professionals, and developers involved with product and systems development.

This multi-part series of 1-hour webinars presented at regular intervals throughout the calendar year provides detailed focus on performing the testing, reducing and understanding the data and managing test problems. Emphasis is placed on documentation in a manner that supports the engineer, product managers and the approval authorities.

This course delivers the what, why and how in MIL-STD 810 compliance. Understanding the evaluation process will enlighten designers of complex Military equipment, help improve their designs and increase compliance with the testing regimens.

Webinar Objectives

In addition to describing test methodology and limits, we will discuss planning and reporting. Documentation of the evaluation process is critical. Also presented will be the concept of tailoring of requirements to meet program needs and rationale necessary for preparing acceptable tailoring.

Webinar attendees will receive a recording of the presentation and the presentation slides for reference long after the event.

Who Should Attend

  • Product and program managers that need to understand the Environmental compliance requirements;
  • Compliance engineers responsible for technical details supporting the product design;
  • Laboratory managers and test personnel responsible for developing the test programs;
  • Auditors and witnesses to gain insight on how tests are tailored for necessary variance from the standard.

We will be discussing planning and reporting – documenting the evaluation process as well as preparing the rationale for the tailoring process and conveying information to those that make the determination of acceptability.

Webinar attendees will receive a recording of the presentation and the presentation slides for reference long after the event.
