NPFC - MIL-STD-1587
MATERIAL AND PROCESS REQUIREMENTS FOR AEROSPACE WEAPONS SYSTEMS
|Publication Date:||23 July 2018|
This standard establishes the requirements for materials and processes used during design and production of aerospace weapons systems and associated support equipment. When used in conjunction with MIL-STD-1530, the other integrity program documents (MILSTD- 1798, MIL-HDBK-1783, etc.), and MIL-STD-1568, it is expected that structurally reliable aerospace systems having a good balance between acquisition costs and life cycle costs will result. Authority to exceed or amend the requirements in this standard requires permission from the cognizant engineering authority (CEA) of the procuring activity.
This standard is applicable for use by all Department of Defense procuring activities and their respective contractors involved in the design and procurement of aerospace weapons systems. Numerous materials and processes used in propulsion and electronic subsystems are not specifically covered in this standard.

This design standard provides design criteria that provide timely and comprehensive consideration during systems design of the limitation of materials and processes and of the lessons learned over the years from military-unique operational systems worldwide. The standard employs military-unique design criteria and considerations that exceed commercial design practices in order to meet the military rigors and environment that the operational systems encounter. The use of this document will result in more durable systems in operational service. It should be used in conjunction with MIL-STD-1568 in selection of materials and processes that will meet the requirements of the system being designed in accordance with MIL-STD-1530, MIL-STD-1798, MIL-STD-3024, and MIL-HDBK-1783 or equivalent integrity program documents.View Less
