(f) To balance out the workload at the AACL, trips of transfer
teams are normally scheduled so that no teams return to the reference
facility at the same time.
This permits transfer team processing and the
checking and certification of secondary transfer standards by the secondary
(g) When a transfer team arrives at a scheduled stop on its
calibration loop, it is expected to inform the platoon headquarters by using
communications facilities of the supported unit. Any delay en route between
units should also be reported.
The team will also notify the platoon
headquarters when it is ready to leave the area of a supported unit for the
next scheduled stop. Such communication permits the platoon headquarters to
keep track of progress and problems of the transfer teams and permits the
platoon headquarters to relay any additional information or instructions
that become necessary; e.g., relocation of supported units, danger areas,
etc. If a transfer team fails to report into the platoon headquarters after
a reasonable delay to allow time for such things as breakdowns on the road,
the platoon headquarters will inform company headquarters so that a search
may be started and the headquarters will prepare to dispatch another team,
if necessary, to pick up the calibration loop.
(h) Prior to initiation of a calibration cycle, the operations
office will obtain calibration working cards (DA Form 2416, fig 4) from its
internal a ADP section.
The request will be made in sufficient time to
permit the ADP section to reproduce, interpret, and forward the required
cards prior to the initiation of the calibration cycle.
These cards are
used to compile, process, and submit data developed as a result of
calibrating measurement standards and TMDE.
These cards are prepared and
submitted as indicated in TM 38-750.
