We report on robustness testing of a highly reliable frequency-doubled, external cavity semiconductor laser (DECSL). The laser module has been demonstrated to survive 6G operating vibration swept from 100 Hz to 500 Hz at 0.25 octaves/min. Impact shock to destruction was performed, and the unit passed operating specifications up to 300G. Good pointing stability and laser start times are shown as a function of repeated environmental temperature cycling between operating extremes.
