Basic Elements of MIL-STD-704

Electronic systems designed for operation in a U.S. DoD aircraft must comply with MIL-STD-704, which defines certain parameters and characteristics the electric power in an aircraft must meet. To demonstrate compliance, these systems must pass comprehensive acceptance testing, measuring responses to a large set of events and conditions, including voltage transients, over- and under-frequency, over- and under-voltage and power transfer operations.
