BROOKLYN, N.Y., - Easy Aerial has announced that its Easy Guard ground station has received its certification of Military Standard Specification MIL-STD 810G. Easy Guard is a smart, independent aircraft hangar for takeoff, landing and charging. It features an automated roof opening and closing system and is made from military-grade materials, rendering it mobile, rugged and weather resilient. Easy Guard’s size and weight allow it to be rapidly mobilized and deployed from stationary and mobile launch sites, such as a standard pickup truck or other vehicle configuration, traveling up to 25 miles per hour. The ground station comes equipped with numerous sensors and four external cameras for situational awareness of the deployment site.
Established by the United States Air Force after World War II, MIL-STD-810 certification provides a formal methodology for testing equipment under simulated environmental conditions to ensure that all equipment used by the military can fully operate in a variety of harsh conditions including extreme temperatures, pressures, shocks, and radiation. MIL-STD-810 Revision G is the latest and most rigorous evolution of the standard to date.
To achieve its certification, an Easy Guard was subjected to a range of independent field tests running from October 2020 through January 2021. Conducted by E-Labs Inc., a full-service climate testing laboratory specializing in aerospace and military equipment, the simulations tested the Easy Guard’s ability to withstand radiation (1,100 W/m2), long-term sun exposure (temperatures of over 130F), humidity (50% RH), and hurricane and sandstorm force winds (40 MPH). Multiple test cycles were conducted in both operating and storage/ transportation, non-operating conditions. Not only did Easy Guard pass all these tests, it did so with zero abnormal findings.
