The military test (MIL tests), or MIL-STD-810 tests, are built to test products designed for use in extreme conditions. Manufacturers of this type of equipment and products must ensure that the product is actually suitable for extreme conditions. Often, equipment manufacturers require test standards for components and products, such as MIL-STD-810 tests.

The MIL-STD-810 test is an entity and standard published by the United States Department of Defense. The purpose of the test is to determine the environmental impact and the life cycle of the equipment or products. It also tests the performance of materials when exposed to environmental influences during their service life. This helps to address both design and material deficiencies. Through testing, deficiencies in the production process and packaging processes can also occur. The standard is also used in testing commercial products, such as mobile phones.

In practice, MIL tests include several different tests and thus environmental conditions. They expose the product to dust, rain, vibration as well as extreme temperatures and shocks. In the video below you’ll see one of Toptester’s customer cases, where the sports watch producer Suunto ran their Military tests for their product in our testing facilities.

With the Toptester test house, the tests described above can be repeated accurately and reliably. The customer receives a certificate of the tests performed and assurance of the level of suitability of the product concerning the aspects tested. Security is a good foundation for product development. Valid and accurate information can be obtained by testing.
