The Space Foundation builds awareness of the benefits of space through its Space Certification™ program, which demonstrates how space technologies improve life on Earth and makes space more interesting and accessible to everyone. The most recent company to become a Space Foundation Space Certification partner is Pennsylvania-based Keystone Compliance. As an ISO-17025 accredited regulatory compliance test lab, Keystone Compliance assists manufacturers in achieving aerospace, military, and commercial compliance certifications.
Keystone has expertise in three distinct testing areas: EMC/EMI, environmental, and package testing. The EMC testing capabilities include shielding effectiveness, high altitude EMP, site surveys, and lightning. Environmental testing includes vibration, shock, acceleration, temperature, thermal shock, solar radiation, altitude, corrosion, and ingress protection.
Keystone Compliance is accredited to many standards including, but not limited to RTCA-DO-160, MIL-STD 810, MIL-STD 202 and MIL-STD 461. Learn more by visiting https://keystonecompliance.com
Much of what improves our lives derives from technology originally developed for space exploration. See all of the Space Certified technologies on the Space Foundation website at www.SpaceFoundation.org.
