DEF STAN 59-411 is critical for defense qualification programs. Our A2LA and UKAS accredited test programs match the strict requirements of militaryand defense standards, giving you certainty in your results – and your products.


What is DEF STAN 59-411 testing?

DEF STAN 59-411 and DEF STAN 61-5 testing covers major EMC categories for land, air, and sea systems used in the UK. Outlining electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements for a variety of systems and assemblies, DEF STAN 59-411 testing prepares products for use in extreme situations.
