Military Testing & Expert Services Including EMC and Extreme Environmental Simulation
Eurofins E&E and Industrial services provides testing and expert services for military and defence environments, products and applications through our global network of test laboratories and Expert Services teams.
Military standards are significantly more onerous than commercial ones due to the harsh conditions involved. The breadth of services we offer enables military and defence-related projects and products ensure that systems and subsystems achieve the stringent performance, reliability and quality criteria required.
We hold particular expertise in the areas of extreme environmental simulation and electromagnetics for the defence industry and its supply chain.
If your project requires specific security clearance, please enquire at our York, location in the United Kingdom.
