The design engineer, the manufacturer, and the Army must all use the same
reference so that we are all talking the same value. The National Bureau of
Standards (NBS) by law establishes all basic measurement values for the
United States. Thereby, all calibrations, Government or civilian, must be
traceable to NBS. Without this traceability to a single source you do not
have a valid reference value.
