A vital part of product development in the defence and aerospace sector is the process of qualification and certification, which ensures that all of the specified requirements have been addressed and satisfied.
Our engineers and programme managers are very experienced in this process, which will involve environmental testing, functional proving trials, engineering assessments, analyses and design disclosures.
Containers for missiles and other munitions are additionally subjected to UN Dangerous Goods Package testing to enable their certification by the relevant authorities for transport worldwide.
Typically, a compliance matrix will be produced to examine each and every requirement, declare compliance and present all of the supporting evidence.
The compliance matrices are the basis for the Certificate of Design, which the appropriate company directors sign to certify that the product is suitable and safe to enter service with the end user customers.
