The maritime system is in the spotlight. The growing tensions and global threats mean that the maritime zone is on everyone's lips. This makes it necessary to increase the preparation and capabilities of maritime services, an objective that can only be achieved through greater investment in advanced systems and platforms that are capable of addressing a wide range of operations.
That is why the modernization of weapons and systems is an indispensable requirement if you want to improve the reliability and survival capacity, as well as obtain a competitive advantage over the rest. To achieve this, military standards are the key.
MIL-S-901D is the ideal standard in this case. Its objective is to measure the crash test and the certification of maritime systems, including computer systems and critical electronic equipment, something that it has been doing for more than 30 years. It describes the environment that must be operated and the minimum requirements and functionalities that a system with these characteristics must have. All that had been specified enjoyed some flexibility, which gave rise to manufacturers experimenting, even questioning the objective of the standard, something that has helped this standard is updated.
The new version, the MIL-DTL-901 is still not well known, but there are already several manufacturers that are implementing it successfully, being Crystal Group a clear example of this. This version of the standard is invaluable to guarantee the survival of the systems under normal conditions of operation, as well as in combat or in really adverse conditions. This is possible because the new standard goes much further and performs more rigorous tests, for example, the addition of detailed production and test procedures, extensive diagrams, tables of contents with links and provisions for ground tests.
