How components, vehicles and systems perform when exposed to desert sand and dust can be vitally important, not just to the operator during use, but to the product’s lifetime overall performance.

BS EN 60529, MIL-STD-810, RTCA DO-160, and DEF STAN 00-35 address environmental conditions that may be faced by materials and products during operation. The standards provide a basis for evaluating the performance of construction, defense, commercial or consumer end-user products to real-life conditions in various regions around the world.
