PLANNING TO BID OR WORK ON A CONTRACT THAT NEEDS SPECIFIC CERTIFICATIONS?
Defense logistics is complex and requires expertise to ensure packaging takes each unique specification and certification into account. For 30+ years, SmartShield has been successfully called upon to provide packaging for military, defense, and government agencies to meet:
- ATA Spec 300
- IP Ratings
- ISPM-15 HT Certification
- Mil-Spec Requirements

VCI and desiccant packaging to preserve military assets from humidity and corrosion
Antistatic materials prevent damage to electronics when in transit or placed in storage.
SEA SPARROW MISSILE
SmartShield was tasked with coming up with a packaging solution for the guidance system in the Sea Sparrow Missile. This missile is fired from a ship and is considered short range with a usable range of 19 kilometers. It has an astonishing top speed of 4,256kph and comes with a price tag of $165,000.00. The packaging for this project had to be anti-static to protect the delicate electronic components of the guidance system as well as fully enclosed to keep out any dust during shipping. SmartShield has now been building packaging for the Sea Sparrow's guidance systems for nearly 10 years now. These systems are protected by a robust antistatic foam set that completely encapsulates the unit and provides a minimum of 4” of cushion, the foam set is then inserted into a special mil-spec bag that is also antistatic to ensure no dust can get into the unit during shipping. This is all then put inside of a double wall stitched cardboard carton and has special labels applied to indicate the requirements for shipping this component.
Designed to protect the most rigorous conditions
No matter the environmental requirements, our team of designers can provide containers or cases that fall within Ingress Protection (IP) ratings for your defense equipment, such as IP67 and IP68.
For example, we only use military-grade hard plastics from brands like Nanuk, Pelican, and Gemstar – which have been internationally designed to pass a range of tests.
|Fungus resistance||Water vapor transmission rate|
|Freefall drop (60°C to -40°C)||Leak test (pneumatic & immersion)|
|Handling test||Humidity test|
|Chemical resistance||Loose cargo bounce|
|Rain test||Watertight splash test|
|Temperature shock test||Sand & dust resistance|
