What is MIL STD 810G - Military Spec

What is MIL-STD-810G?

The MIL-STD-810 standard is a series of lab tests designed by the United States Military that ensures a piece of equipment, in our case a tablet, is built well enough to perform in harsh environments.

The drop test portion of MIL-STD-810G is what tablet vendors, such as MobileDemand, complete to prove that the device will be fully functional even after enduring a series of drops for a certain height. This certification is credible and applicable across all industries, not just the military.

For every new rugged tablet and rugged case created by MobileDemand, it is subjected to a drop test with the highest standards in the industry. Whereas most rugged tablet vendors will use up to 5 total devices to pass all 26 drops (allowed by MIL-STD-810 standards), MobileDemand uses only 1. This allows engineers to clearly determine the best possible design of the device to withstand the greatest impact. End result is a higher quality product with a longer life in the field.
