obvious, when replacement parts are immediately available, and when
effecting these repairs will not jeopardize the calibration team schedule.
A deviation is a change from an established operating
procedure or method of operation to a different procedure or method to
accomplish the required end result.
aa. Interservice Support Agreement-TMDE Calibration and Repair (ISSA-
Calibration and maintenance service performed by the organic
capability of one military service, or element thereof, in support of
another military service, or element thereof. Such action can be recurring
or nonrecurring in character.
Normally a computer memory
file that contains identifying information about instruments that require
cyclic calibration and repair. It may also contain identifying information
about instruments that require repair but do not require cyclic calibration.
The source document is the DA Form 2416 Calibration Data Card. This file is
used for scheduling cyclic calibration; producing printed listings of
instruments scheduled for calibration; producing preprinted DA Form 2416
working cards; recording calibration and repair actions; and providing
reports of accomplishment.
This file is maintained by computer support
operation for Area TMDE Calibration and Repair Centers (ACRC) and Internal
TMDE Calibration and Repair Centers (ICRC).
This file may be manually
maintained when computer support is not available.
cc. Instrument National Historical File (INHF). A computer memory file
that contains Army-wide information about consecutive calibration and repair
actions on each instrument.
This file is compiled from DA Form 2416,
Calibration Data Card Information.
Calibration Objectives and Policies.
a. The following calibration policies were developed to support the
basic purpose of the Army Calibration System; i.e., to insure the accuracy
of TMDE used in research and development, industrial production, and Army
Field Service functions. Five main objectives are evident in the policies
(refer to figure six).
