  • Author: Shaun McQuaid

The defense electronics market encompasses a significant range of environments, touching every corner of the globe and the atmosphere’s edge from fixed installations with conditioned air environments, to mobile deployment in extreme temperature environments. Attempting to create a “one-size-fits-all” approach for the full environmental spectrum is impractical operations with little concern regarding SWaP constraints or ruggedization pay for unnecessary features, whereas more constrained deployments may not receive the optimized solution they require.

This paper describes Mercury’s approach to building products for enhanced durability
under extreme environmental conditions, including repeated temperature cycling over
wide temperature ranges. Requirements and best practices have been accumulated over
dozens of military and avionics programs, resulting in a best-in-class set of design rules and
manufacturing process called modified off-the-shelf (MOTS).
