Department of Defense Test Method Standard - Environmental Engineering Considerations and Laboratory Tests
Military Specifications and Standards / 31-Oct-2008 / 804 pages

Establishes uniform environmental test methods for determining the resistance of equipment to the effects of natural and induced environments peculiar to military operations.
1. This standard is approved for use by all Departments and Agencies of the Department of Defense (DoD). Although prepared specifically for DoD applications, this standard may be tailored for commercial applications as well. While MIL-STD-810F incorporated a significant revision of MIL-STD-810E, MIL-STD-810G not only consolidates the basic -810F with its three change notices to result in one comprehensive document, but also includes a number of corrections, significant changes, and additions to the comprehensive -810F, to include five new test methods, one of which (Method 526) was extracted from Method 516. The primary emphases are still the same – (with the exception of Method 528) tailoring a materiel item's environmental design and test limits to the conditions that the specific materiel will experience throughout its service life, and establishing laboratory test methods that replicate the effects of environments on materiel, rather than trying to reproduce the environments themselves. However, the "G" revision continues the up-front explanation of how to implement the environmental tailoring process throughout the materiel acquisition cycle.
As in MIL-STD-810F, this revision recognizes that the environmental design and test tailoring process has expanded to involve a wide range of managerial and technical interests. Accordingly, this revision orients environmental design and test direction toward three basic types of users who have distinctly different, although closely associated, interests: program managers who, among other responsibilities, ensure proposed concepts and systems are valid and functional in intended operational environments; environmental engineering specialists (EES), who enter the acquisition process early to assist combat and materiel developer tailoring efforts by preparing life cycle environmental profiles and drafting tailored design criteria and test programs; and the design, test, and evaluation community, whose analysts, engineers, and facility operators use tailored designs and tests to meet user needs.
