A military standard (MIL-STD) is a United States defense standard.
A defense standard is a document that establishes uniform engineering and technical requirements for military-unique or substantially modified commercial processes, procedures, practices and methods.
Standardizations are useful in that they achieve interoperability, guaranteeing that products meet certain requirements, commonality, reliability, total cost of ownership, compatibility with logistics systems, and similar defense-related objectives.
Standards for defense evolved because of the importance to ensure repair ability, maintainability and proper performance.
Some standards have become more widely used than others. For example, since its inception in 1973 and in subsequent revisions during the ensuing years, MIL-STD-1553 has evolved into the predominant, internationally accepted networking standard for the integration of military platforms.
The MIL-STD-1553 standard describes the method of communication and the electrical interface requirements for subsystems connected to the data bus. The 1 Mbps serial communication bus is used to achieve aircraft avionic (MIL-STD-1553B) and stores management (MIL-STD-1760B) integration.
Another important military standard is MIL-STD-704. This standard defines a standardized power interface between a military aircraft and its equipment and carriage stores, covering such topics as voltage, frequency, phase, power factor, ripple, maximum current, electrical noise and abnormal conditions (over voltage and under voltage) for both AC and DC systems.
This is a crucial document because it gives designers the information that they need to ensure that an airborne military system will be compatible with the power supply provided by the aircraft.
MIL-STD 461F regulates boundary and relevant verification criteria for the regulation of the electromagnetic interference (EMI) emission and vulnerability features of electronic, electrical, and electromechanical instruments and subsystems planned or acquired for application by actions and organizations of the Department of Defense (DoD).
The stated equipment and subsystems could be applied individually or as a joint sector of other subsystems or systems.
Another key military standard is MIL-STD-810. This standard emphasizes tailoring an equipment’s environmental design and test limits to the conditions that it will experience throughout its service life, and establishing chamber test methods that replicate the effects of environments on the equipment rather than imitating the environments themselves.
MIL-STD-Training Courses by Tonex
Tonex offers nine cutting edge MIL-STD Training courses that are perfect for:
- Test engineers
- Test technicians and operators
- MIL-STD hardware and software design engineers
- The source or troubleshoot MIL-STD equipment team personnel
- Interpreting MIL-STD data team personnel

These hard to come by classes cover MIL-STD regulations as well as standards for environmental conditions and test procedures for airborne equipment and military electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC/EMI) training.
For example, Military EMI/EMC Training is a 3-day comprehensive course that overs the basic math and the physics of EMI/EMC and the fundamentals of instrumentation, instruments, test setups and real measurements.
MIL-PRF-19500 Training is a very popular 2-day course that covers specifications that establishes the general performance requirements for semiconductor devices. Participants learn how the product assurance is provided by effective screening, conformance inspection, and process controls to mitigate risk.
Additionally, attendees learn about MIL-PRF-19500 and how it is applied to discrete components such as MOSFETs and Schottkys.
