Defense Materials Testing

For over 50 years, EAG has performed defense materials testing to characterize high-performance materials and electronics used in combat and defense. EAG offers more specialized imaging and analytical expertise than any commercial contract laboratory in the world. We understand that stringent requirements for military electronics and materials can differ from commercial applications, ranging from operating temperatures to the full life cycle of components.

Services for Defense Materials Testing

Our scientists and engineers have contributed to the development of some innovative armor, missiles and munitions through defense materials testing. EAG has a broad set of expertise and equipment to test, qualify, and analyze electronics. We are approved by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to perform testing according to MIL-STD-750 and MIL-STD-883, and our certifications also include ISO 9001:2015, ISO 17025, DSCC. Our US facilities are ITAR-compliant for defense-related articles and services. 

How do you design for the world’s least-hospitable environments and, at the same time, ensure safety, speed and precision? Turn to EAG. WE KNOW HOW.


EAG offers a comprehensive suite of services to evaluate high-performance materials and electronics, meeting the industry’s exacting standards for tight controls of material properties, composition and chemistry. Here are just a few ways we can help:

Our labs perform failure analysis on both integrated circuits and devices. The failure analysis services range from Level 1 non-destructive examination to Level 3 fault isolation and root cause identification and characterization.

By combining spectroscopy, imaging, and physical characterization, EAG scientists provide deep insight into advanced materials, including metal matrix, ceramic matrix composite, coatings, composites and porous materials.

Inspection of raw materials during key phases of manufacturing can aid in the identification and elimination of unwanted impurities in final products.

Aerospace Materials Testing

We use GC/MS, LC/MS, and ICP/MS to determine if the presence of any transferred chemicals are skin sensitizers with potential for toxic, allergenic or abrasion concerns.

We offer depth-specific distribution measurements and full chemical survey characterizations of engineering coatings, including contaminant identification.

Our team offers the engineering expertise to design, develop, test, analyze, and debug the most innovative products using ATE, system-level testing, reliability and IC-level failure analysis.

We compare “good” vs “bad” samples to evaluate chemical changes by applying a variety of analytical and physical testing techniques

EAG provides full structural characterization of CMC materials, including chemical composition, impurities, microstructure, and interface chemistry of reinforcement fibers including SiC, SiCN and carbon fibers.

We offer monitoring of trace and ultra-trace level concentrations in raw materials (sulfur, phosphorus) with great consistency and sensitivity. This typically uses techniques such as GDMS, IGA, ICP-OES and ICP-MS.

Defense Materials Testing

RGA is useful for more than moisture content analysis. EAG’s RGA testing system can detect all masses up to 140 AMU, allowing common gasses to be identified and quantified.

EAG provides end-to-end EMC/EMI testing solutions to evaluate components for use in extreme conditions to help avoid unexpected electromagnetic interference and compatibility compliance issues.

EAG is DLA- (Defense Logistics Agency) certified for various MIL-STD testing requirements. Testing capabilities include fine leak, gross leak, die shear, bond strength, P.I.N.D. testing, radiography, SEM inspection, and micro-sectioning.
