Simple rule-of-thumb for small assemblies:

``The RMS vibration amplitudes were applied as a simulated 100g static load applied along each axis simultaneously. This load was chosen to be more conservative than the requirements of the NASA General Environmental Verification Specification (GEVS) which represents a 3-sigma case of applied acceleration due to launch- induced vibrations.’’ [do Vale Pereira, P. et al 2020 https://digitalcommons.usu.edu/smallsat/2020/all2020/121/]
