NPFC - MIL-STD-810
ENVIRONMENTAL TEST METHODS AND ENGINEERING GUIDELINES
|Publication Date:||14 July 1989|
Purpose. This standard provides:
a. Guidelines for conducting environmental engineering tasks to tailor environmental tests to end-item equipment applications.
b. Test methods for determining the effects of natural and induced environments on equipment used in military applications.
Application. This standard shall not be invoked on a blanket basis but each requirement will be assessed in terms of the need. Application of this standard early in the development phase of the acquisition process is encouraged. Selected application at other points in the acquisition process may be appropriate. The methods of this standard are not all-included in the environmental test specification when appropriate. The test methods of this standard are intended to be applied in support of the following objects:
a. To disclose deficiencies and defects and verify corrective actions.
b. To assess equipment suitability for the environmental conditions anticipated throughout its life cycle.
c. To verify contractual compliance.
Limitations. This standard purposely does not address the following:
a. Electromagnetic interference (EMI).
b. Lightning and magnetic effects.
c. Nuclear weapons and nuclear weapons' effects.
d. Piece parts, such as bolts, wires, transistors, and integrated circuits.
e. Tests of basic materials.
f. Certain aspects of the safety testing of munitions.
g. Test criteria utilized for determining packaging performance or design. (See MIL-P-116, FED-STD-101, and ASTM Standards).
