DO-160G Training, Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment Training

DO-160G training, covers RTCA’s DO-160G standard for Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment. DO-160G training course  provides the knowledge applied to DO-160G and how its role in systems engineering processes including requirements, design, product certification and Technical Standard Orders.

RTCA/DO-160 has been used as a standard for environmental testing since 1958 and it defines standard environmental test conditions (categories) and applicable test procedures for airborne equipment.

RTCA/DO-160 (or its precursor, RTCA/DO-138) is the standard for
environmental testing since 1958. It defines standard environmental test conditions (categories) and applicable test procedures for airborne equipment.

Learn how you can perform DO-160G tests as a way of demonstrating the performance characteristics of airborne equipment in environmental conditions that may be
encountered in operation of the equipment in aircraft.

System and Hardware engineers, Test engineers, System qualification engineers, environmental specialists, specialists, project or process managers
