Mil Spec Testing
Origin and Importance of Mil Spec Testing

As one could imagine, products used by our US Defense Branches/Sectors may undergo high levels of physical stress and environmental exposures while in use. To ensure our defense team has reliable resources, the US Department of Defense standardized processes and materials used in manufacturing of high quality products. Because these standards are so thorough, many non-defense entities, technical organization and industries have adopted these regulations as their own. To serve those companies that want to test components and/or materials for physical characteristics and operational durability according to military requirements, Applied Technical Services performs a variety of Mil Spec Testing methods to their relevant standards.
