b. The secondary transfer teams perform calibration at the direct and
general support unit location.
The TMDE located at using unit sites and
requiring secondary transfer calibration is transported to the supporting
maintenance unit for calibration.
The supporting maintenance unit is
responsible for insuring that their supported units receive at least 7 days'
advance notice of transfer team visits so that their TMDE requiring
calibration may be transported to the supporting maintenance unit.
exceptional circumstances, the secondary transfer teams may perform
calibration at sites of using units.
c. Prior to leaving the company on its schedule of visits, the transfer
team's secondary transfer standards are calibrated and cross-checked as
required by TB 750-25 and explained in TB 9-4931-402-50.
failing to pass these checks will be repaired and recertified before being
used by the team for calibration.
d. Before starting its schedule, each transfer team is provided a
working deck of prepunched Calibration Data Cards, DA Form 2416 (see TM 38-
750), one for each item of TMDE it will calibrate. The calibration working
cards will have certain data on them, and, during each visit to a supported
unit, the transfer team will verify accuracy of the data.
calibration working card will be completed by calibration personnel of the
team at the time the equipment is being calibrated. When new equipment is
encountered or when a working card has not been provided, a blank card will
be filled out.
(through platoon headquarters) for further processing.
For details on
obtaining, completing, and submitting these cards, see TM 38-750.
e. Immediately upon arrival at the direct or general support
maintenance unit (or the using unit, if appropriate), the transfer team
notifies the platoon headquarters of its arrival by using communications
facilities of the supported unit.
Vehicles are emplaced, expanded, and
power furnished to the vans.
The transfer standards are allowed the
required warmup and stabilization time and then a cross-check is performed
to verify the validity of the teams' standards.
Calibration is performed
piece of TMDE calibrated, a calibration data card will indicate the
condition of equipment prior to calibration, corrective action taken, and
the results of calibration. When TMDE cannot be calibrated and repairs are
necessary, calibration personnel may repair on a limited basis.
f. Calibration personnel attach certification labels in accordance with
TM 38-750, certifying that the TMDE has been calibrated. Correction charts,
if required, will be annotated to indicate certified correction figures.
Equipment beyond the scope of the team to repair or calibrate is red-tagged
(DA Form 2417) in accordance with TM 38-750.
