What Are Some Common Issues with Military Devices & Equipment?
Just as is the case for any other category of electronic equipment, military devices and support technology can wear down or eventually break down, too. Whenever you find yourself in that situation, other connected components or even the entire specified system can be rendered effectively useless until the faulty issues are addressed. Here are some of the more common issues we see in our repair and refurbishing work on military equipment at AES:
According to a study by the US Air Force, high temperatures cause over 50% of all electronic equipment failures. Some military equipment is utilized in some pretty extreme temperature environments, and this can put some real stress on sensitive electronics. Alternatively, all it takes is for a cooling fan to malfunction on your equipment in order for it to malfunction or experience some damage.
Vibrations are another common threat to electronic equipment; in fact, the Air Force concludes that vibrations are the second most common threat to electronic equipment behind temperature extremes. Because many military exercises and missions involve quick movements and travel through challenging terrains, vibrations can certainly be a threat to sensitive electronics.
Excessive humidity & moisture
Moisture & humidity are common threats to electronic components of all types, and military devices can certainly face those threats more than most. In fact, humidity is the 3rd-leading cause of military electronic equipment failures. Many military devices are actually designed and engineered to be water-resistant, but that isn’t necessarily the case for all equipment applications. All it takes is exposure to an excessively humid environment to shorten the life of your equipment.
Infiltration by contaminants including dust (the 4th biggest threat to military electronic equipment), dirt, oils, or chemicals can certainly damage your electronic equipment’s internal components. Any time you’re able to identify there has been contaminant infiltration of your device, prompt service is almost always warranted.
Manufacturing and design flaws
Manufacturing defects aren’t always easy to pinpoint, but they are nonetheless another common issue with military electronic equipment. Manufacturers have been known to occasionally settle for using lower-quality materials & parts in attempts to cut costs, but the result is often a device which simply isn’t as reliable and doesn’t last as long. Got something going on with your equipment that you can’t quite put your finger on? Send it to AES. We use the best in diagnostic technology, and have many proven methods for troubleshooting and assessing any underlying issues with your military equipment.
