Understanding MIL-STD-810: What It Means for Two-Way Radios

As you search for the best two-way radios to meet your communication needs, you might come across the term "MIL-STD-810" in product descriptions. But what exactly does this mean, and how does it affect the performance and durability of two-way radios?

MIL-STD-810 is a set of military standards that outlines the environmental testing requirements for equipment used by the U.S. Department of Defense. These standards are designed to ensure that equipment can withstand the environmental stresses of its intended use, including extremes of temperature, humidity, vibration, shock, and more.

When it comes to two-way radios, MIL-STD-810 testing provides assurance that the radios can function reliably in a wide range of environments, such as during extreme weather conditions, rugged terrain, or hazardous work environments. The tests that radios must pass to meet MIL-STD-810 standards are rigorous and thorough, and include both laboratory and field testing.

Some examples of tests that two-way radios may undergo include temperature and humidity testing, where the radios are exposed to extreme temperature changes and high humidity levels; vibration and shock testing, where the radios are subjected to intense vibrations and impacts to simulate rugged handling and transport; and dust and water ingress testing, where the radios are tested for their ability to resist dust and water penetration.
