Applied Avionics products are tested to a rigorous battery of MIL-STD and DO-160 qualification testing. Most of the companies’ switch products are also on the U.S. military’s Qualified Product List under MIL-PRF-22285. The tables below are intended to be a general guideline of typical qualification levels. Refer to a particular product’s individual technical guides for specific qualification levels by product. Summary test reports are available by request. Where possible, a single test report may be used to perform testing that applies to DO-160 and MIL-STD test levels.
