Military Electromagnetic Compatibility Testing Capabilities

End-to-end testing solutions to ensure electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and mission readiness of your equipment and subsystems.

MIL-STD-461 emission test limits are significantly more stringent than commercial limits, and as a result, can be difficult for manufactures to obtain MIL-STD compliance. Our end-to-end testing capabilities, expert test technicians & engineers, and single-source testing solutions help you meet demanding contract deadlines.

MET Labs is an independent ISO/IEC 17025 laboratory for the testing and certification of electrical products to commercial and military specifications. MET has 30 years of MIL standard testing experience, the ability to test to any mission profile and is accredited to perform testing for top military defense contractors. MET’s testing is accredited by A2LA, NVLAP, and ISTA. MET is also accredited for RTCA/DO avionics testing, as well as other FAA, NASA, and IEC standards.
