headquarters a list of units to be supported.
The units requesting
calibration service will submit a current list of TMDE requiring secondary
transfer/secondary reference level calibration service to the company
requests and forward them to the supporting ADP facility for processing.
The supporting ADP facility will provide a master list of all TMDE by type
and quantity to be supported by the calibration company.
density information can be derived from the ADP Master Record File
maintained at the ADP facility.
(b) Liaison is then established with supported units. One or more
liaison teams are dispatched to visit supported units. Usually the control
office will dispatch personnel of the transfer teams, since they will be
dealing directly with supported units.
Initial contact, though, is
established by a team normally headed by the operations officer or area
calibration liaison officer. This team will notify supported units of the
services that will be provided by the calibration company, will select sites
within supported unit areas that will facilitate transfer team operations,
and will inform supported units of what is expected of them in the way of
materiel and facilities when the transfer team mazes its visit.
(c) After liaison is established with supported units, the
calibration schedule can be established and an itinerary developed for each
transfer team with the transfer platoon headquarters. Each transfer team is
provided a list of units it will visit, a working deck of calibration data
cards TMDE scheduled for service, the location of units, necessary maps,
available information on road conditions or other facts that may impede
operations, dates of visits of each unit, duration of visits, and such other
information and instructions necessary.
(d) The calibration schedule will be supplied to the supporting
ADP facility as required by TM 38-750 to insure scheduling of equipment to
be calibrated and the preparation of calibration data cards by the ADP
(e) Calibration scheduling and the itinerary of each team's trip
is dependent on the density and types of equipment supported, the distance
between units or activities to be served, the calibration interval and the
time involved to calibrate equipment at each stop, the geographical area to
be covered, and the number and types of units or activities within the area
requiring calibration service. The frequency of calibration for each type
of TMDE is established by TB 43-180 or from instructions received from the
