Ruggedized Products Deployed in Harsh Environments

NAI is a leader in designing advanced embedded board and system-level products for the most demanding air, land, and sea requirements, and our products are deployed in a wide range of harsh military, aerospace and industrial environments. We utilize best-in-class design, manufacturing, and test methodologies to develop products that achieve the highest levels of efficiency, power and performance that can operate effectively in harsh environments; sustain extreme temperature changes; and withstand vibration, shock, and corrosive conditions. Our design tools include thermal and structural analysis and advanced simulation software. Rugged environmental standards include MIL-STD 810 & VITA 47.

On-site environmental and EMI ruggedization qualification capabilities include temperature, vibration (sine & random), shock, humidity, and conducted emissions. As required, NAI supplements these capabilities through the use of local test laboratories. Our systems are ruggedized and tested to ensure they operate in harsh environments. Tests include altitude, temperature-altitude, contaminate protection, explosive atmosphere, MIL-STD-461 EMI testing, and lightening testing. 

Below is a list of the key environmental parameters our products are designed to meet.
