The European Space Agency on Reliability Stan Heltzel is a materials engineer working for the European Space Agency, and he is tasked with the job of procuring and qualifying PCBs that end up in satellites.

Ventec VT-901 Reliability Validated by Key Israeli Customers' HATS Testing Ventec International is proud to announce that the reliability of its VT-901 polyimide laminates, prepregs and low-flow prepregs has been con - clusively demonstrated by Highly Accelerated Thermal Stress (HATS) testing by two leading PCB manufacturers in Israel. Let's Talk Testing: Does your Product have a Military Application? Just like any other industry segment within the circuit board world, the military sector has its own share of documents…and likely many more than most! These documents have been devel - oped over the years to guide, shape, and test anything and everything that might go into a jet fighter, a radar system, a warship, a weapons sys- tem, etc. Mil/Aero Markets: F-35 Declared Combat-Ready Electronic subsystems are an integral part of all modern military fighter jets, with a substan- tial portion of the electronics supporting intelli- gence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) sys- tems, electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR), avionics, munitions and radar related subassemblies. This equates to a very high content of PCBs and SMT assembly requirements. Testing Todd: Testing Military/Aerospace— Houston, We Have a Solution This month we will dive into the testing of aerospace and military product. These designs require special processing in many cases above and beyond the IPC standards. The main speci- fications used when testing military product are MIL-PRF-55110, MIL-PRF-50884 and MIL- PRF-31032.

But hiring veter - ans can bring a wealth of benefits, and this article highlights them. It also focuses on the Blackfox Veteran's Training Program, the first program of its kind to provide veterans with little to no in- dustry experience with the skills to grow their ca- reers in the electronic assembly industry.
