MIL-STD-810G is a U.S. military specification that guarantees a level of durability for a piece of technology.

Specifically, MIL-STD-810G means the equipment has gone through a series of 29 tests. These put the phone up against shock, vibration, heat, cold, gunfire shock, humidity and more.

But any MIL-STD-810G device should be field ready, or even “combat ready” in principle. A lot of technology sold to the U.S. military must be MIL-STD-810G compliant. To win contracts, manufacturers likely need to demonstrate that this is the case.

In the United States, the Military Standard (also written as MIL-STD) is enforced by the DoD and maintained by the U.S. Air Force, Army, and Navy. It exists to ensure products meet specific requirements for various defense-related purposes.

It should be mentioned, however, that MIL-STD is not only used in the Military sector but also across non-defense organizations because of the thorough test methods that validate a product’s readiness for extreme conditions.

MIL-STD-810G is particularly pertinent to these positions:

  • Materiel acquisition program managers among whose responsibilities is ensuring materiel will function as required in intended operational environments.
  • Environmental engineering specialists (EES) who assist combat and materiel developers throughout the acquisition process to tailor their materiel designs and test designs to environmental stresses/constraints expected during the materiel’s service life.
  • Design, test and evaluation community analysts, engineers, and facility operators who meet user needs by focusing on tailored designs and tests.

MIL-STD-810G is series of tests designed by the Department of Defense to test its equipment limits in various conditions where it is expected to be used (environment) or transported (shocks). The test vary according to the nature, size and weight of the equipment tested.

Increasingly, manufacturers are using this standard as a way to market their devices.

If a device boasts MIL-STD-810G compliance, it should, in theory, be durable and far more likely to survive drops and harsh environmental conditions.

MIL-STD-810G is approved for use by all Departments and Agencies of the Department of Defense. Although prepared specifically for DoD applications, this standard may be tailored for commercial applications as well.

MIL-STD-810-H includes:

  • The definition of temperature shock
  • The Test and Evaluation Master Plan (TEMP)
  • Test conditions and tolerances for test conditions
  • Calibration interval guidelines
  • Temperature change rate

MIL-STD-810G Training by Tonex

MIL-STD-810G Training course, MIL-810G training provides technical understanding and guidance about the objectives and application of MIL-STD-810G, environmental design and test considerations and standards.

MIL-STD-810G training covers materiel acquisition program planning and engineering direction for considering the influences that environmental stresses have on materiel throughout all phases of its service life.

TONEX’s MIL-STD-810G training does also recommends design or test specifications based on environmental processes resulting in realistic materiel designs and test methods (based on materiel system performance requirements)

MIL-STD-810G training covers all the tests, the required equipment to perform each test, along with  the methodology to apply.
