Do you need
What we have
  • Your equipment tested, qualified or certified
  • Support for test definition, dedicated test equipment manufacturing or test set-up
  • Support for model validation

conform the following Aerospace standards:

  • DoD MIL-STD-461 (C to F)
  • RTCA DO-160 (C to G)
  • EUROCAE ED-14 (D to G)
  • AIRBUS ABD0100.1.2 (E and G)

  • DoD MIL-STD-704 (D)

or other standards like FCC, IEC or DEF-STAN

Detailed specification of standards covered by NLR’s EMC facility.

Specialized knowledge, experience and over 20 different facilities for environmental testing. We can advise you, or support you, throughout the entire testing process from establishing test requirements and test definition, to test set-up and execution. If required we can apply ISO 17025 or Military MIL-STD-810 standards. We also can assist you in validating your own models of your test subject.

Our environmental testing facilities cover the following tests:

  • Climatic (temperature, humidity, salt spray, fluid contamination, altitude, thermal vacuum, fungus, pressure)
  • Mechanical (vibration, shock, acceleration, static load)
  • Electric (emi/emc, esd, hirf, lightning)
  • Radiation (total dose, proton, heavy ion, californium Cf-252)
  • Acoustics (acoustic noise, transmission loss)

Other capabilities of the NLR EMC facility are:

  • Crosstalk measurements according to IEC 61935-1
  • Surface transfer impedance Triaxial method measurements according to CEI-IEC 62153-4-3
  • Surface transfer impedance Line injection method measurements according to CEI-IEC 62153-4-6
  • Shielded screening attenuation measurements according to CEI-IEC 62153-4-4
  • In-situ EMI test to customer specifications
  • Helicopter platform annex Open Area Test Site (OATS) for emission measurements and antenna calibrations
  • Variable frequency AC power source (9 kVA) for power quality tests

Our environmental testing facilities cover the following tests:

Major customers are Rockwell Collins, MIAirline, Esterline, TERMA, Fokker Services, Royal Netherlands Air Force, OIP, Relats, Curtiss Wright, FN Herstal
