Purpose

The purpose of this NASA Technical Standard is to ensure the accuracy of measurements affecting safety and mission success through the proper selection, calibration, and use of Measuring and Test Equipment (MTE). 

Applicability

This NASA Technical Standard is approved for use by NASA Headquarters and NASA Centers, including Component Facilities and Technical and Service Support Centers, and may be cited in contract, program, and other Agency documents as a technical requirement. This Standard may also apply to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory or to other contractors, grant recipients, or parties to agreements to the extent specified or referenced in their contracts, grants, or agreements. 

This standard is applicable to measurement applications where quantitative data accuracy is necessary in order to ensure safety and mission success, as identified in appendix A. 

This standard does not apply where a high level of accuracy is not a consideration, such as certain types of processes monitoring, "indication only," or "reference only" purposes. 

Levying Additional or Conflicting Requirements 1.3.1 Organization-specific calibration requirements not contained in this publication or standards referenced herein shall be formally documented prior to implementation. The term organization includes NASA programs and projects, NASA Centers, and NASA contractors and subcontractors upon which this standard has been contractually invoked. 

The requirement established in this NASA Technical Standard do not supersede or waive requirements found in other Agency documents
