CVG Strategy has the MIL-STD-810 Subject Matter expertise built upon product testing and compliance since the late eighties. In the past ten years, we have worked to support dozens of environmental tests and fully understand the latest versions MIL-STD-810 and similar US DOD Military Standards.
History of MIL-STD-810
Prior to World War II, environmental testing as it is known today was non-existent. With WWII came a requirement for worldwide military operations involving all kinds of vehicles, ground support equipment and aircraft operating under a very broad range of environmental conditions. Systems were fielded quickly and little or no testing was done to qualify them. Airplanes didn’t fly, torpedoes did not operate after launch, small boats sank and guns jammed. There were few standard procedures for performing tests among the various government laboratories. As a result, industry was motivated to speed the development of environmental facilities.
After the war was over, the precursor to the MIL-STD-810 was written including the US Army Air Force Specification No. 41065, “General Specification for Environmental Test of Equipment,” 7 December 1945. The US Navy developed MIL-T-5422. These standards were continued throughout the fifties, and finally in 1962, the US Air Force drafted MIL-STD-810. By June 1967, MIL-STD-810B was no longer just an Air Force Military Standard; it was considered “Tri-Service” and encompassed the US Army, US Air Force and US Navy as the ultimate product qualification standard. Subsequent versions of MIL-STD-810 have been developed and released to keep up with advancing test methodologies and technologies.

CVG Strategy has a relationship with several A2LA (American Association for Laboratory Accreditation) Environmental Labs across the country. There are five (5) A2LA Labs within a 2 hour drive of our Viera, Florida headquarters. We can work with you to help select the right lab based on your testing program. We have extensive MIL-STD-810 – Subject Matter Expertise and can help you with your test program.
Our MIL-STD-810 Subject Matter Expertise is not with one product or product line but has evolved over several platforms including ground mobile vehicles, Air Transported, airborne, ship based and ground stationary. Technology experience includes aircraft, ship communications systems, electronic warfare, wire and wireless communication systems, electro-mechanical, and explosive actuated electronics. Most test experts never get to see so many different platforms, which maeks our MIL-STD-810 Subject Matter Expertise unique.
