RUGGEDIZATION

Built to Handle the Toughest Tasks

Ruggedized components, subsystems, and systems are built to withstand the harshest environments, from the hottest deserts to frigid Arctic conditions or even in outer space. They must be designed and constructed not to fail under the most difficult operating conditions. Benchmark Secure Technology offers more than 20 years of experience in ruggedizing products for environments where equipment cannot fail.

Working with both custom products and cost-effective commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components and assemblies, Secure has delivered ruggedized products for critical applications in aerospace, defense, and industrial markets for use in complex, dangerous, and hazardous environments. Using a proven and well-tested ruggedization process, prototypes and even final products are prepared for the harshest operating conditions using a combination of computer modeling and accelerated life testing to ensure that any design or manufacturing flaws in a product are discovered and eliminated. Computer simulation software provides insights into a product’s thermal, shock, and vibration behavior while still in the design phase. In contrast, design failure mode and effects analysis (DFMEA) during a product’s concept and design stages help identify test requirements for achieving a final ruggedized component, subsystem, or system.

Accelerated life testing, including temperature cycling, vibration testing, and shock testing, followed by final qualification testing, assures that a product can perform well in the harshest environments.
