MIL-STD 810 F Testing

MIL STD 810 F method standard is approved for use by all Departments and Agencies of the Department of Defense (DoD). This standard recognizes that the environmental design and test tailoring process has expanded to involve a wide range of managerial and technical interests.

Part One of MIL-STD 810 F describes management, engineering, and technical roles in the environmental design and test tailoring process. It focuses on the process of tailoring materiel design and test criteria to the specific environmental conditions a materiel item is likely to encounter during its service life.

Part Two of MIL STD 810 F contains environmental laboratory test methods to be applied according to the general and specific test tailoring guidelines described in Part One. It is important to emphasize that these methods are not to be called out in blanket fashion nor applied as unalterable routines, but are to be selected and tailored to generate the most relevant test data possible.

When applied properly, the environmental management and engineering processes described in MIL STD 810 can be of enormous value in generating confidence in the environmental worthiness and overall durability of materiel system design. However, it is important to recognize that there are limitations inherent in laboratory testing that make it imperative to use proper caution and engineering judgement when extrapolating these laboratory results to results that may be obtained under actual service conditions. In many cases, real-world environmental stresses (singularly or in combination) cannot be duplicated practically or reliably in test laboratories. Therefore, users should not assume that a system or component that passes laboratory tests of this standard also would pass field/fleet verification trials.
