RTCA/DO 160 Testing Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment
The RTCA /DO 160 test defines standard environmental test conditions and applicable test procedures for airborne equipment. The standard provides a manufacturer and laboratory the means of demonstrating the performance characteristics of airborne equipment in environmental conditions that may be encountered in operation of the equipment in aircraft.
DO-160 testing has been revised to address the emerging and improved test technologies resulting from the increased understanding of equipment operation under actual environmental conditions. The current version of the standard is the DO-160F test.
