Delve deep into the comprehensive arena of
shipboard equipment shock qualification.

By the end of this intensive course, participants will be
equipped with the knowledge and strategies to
craft a streamlined, cost-effective shock
qualification test schedule.

Key Learning Areas:

  • The Navy’s shock qualification process.
  • Roles, responsibilities, and contractual
  • Choosing the test platforms and their
  • Navigating shipboard integration, test fixture
    demands, and operational standards.
  • Test failure redesigns and material selections.
  • Insight into shock isolator selection, COTs
    requirements, and design recommendations for
    shock isolators.
  • Addressing design modification retesting.
  • Proficient understanding of testing and

Documentation as per OPNAV and MIL-DTL-901E standards.

  • Interpreting and simplifying test specifications,
    minimizing confusion and contradictions.
  • Background:
    An evolved continuation of the training imparted
    at the S &V Symposium since 2002, this course
    centralizes on satisfying shock qualification
    requisites efficiently and cost-effectively.
