The military standard MIL-STD-810 test series addresses a broad range of environmental conditions that include:
- Low pressure for altitude testing.
- Exposure to high and low temperatures plus temperature shock (both operating and in storage).
- Rain (including wind blown and freezing rain); humidity, fungus, salt fog for rust testing.
- Sand and dust exposure.
- Explosive atmosphere; leakage; acceleration; shock and transport shock (i.e., triangle/sine/square wave shocks), random vibration.
The environmental management and engineering processes described within MIL-STD-810 can be of enormous value to generate confidence in the environmental worthiness and overall durability of a system design.
