NONDESTRUCTIVE INSPECTION PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS FOR AIRCRAFT AND MISSILE MATERIALS AND PARTS
|Publication Date:||9 September 2020|
This handbook details guidance to Government personnel and contractors for defining the requirements for establishing an acceptable Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) program for DoD aircraft structure, aircraft stores (external structures such as antennas, pods, fuel tanks, weapons, radomes, etc.) and missile structural components when an NDI Program Plan is required in the contract or order. NDI Programs are essential to ensuring NDI processes are implemented to support the lifecycle design requirements of the system and its components. NDI Programs are applicable to all phases of the system life cycle, including acquisition, modification, and sustainment. This handbook may also be applicable to mechanical equipment, subsystems and propulsion systems, but the requirements defined by the NDI Program Plan should be tailored by the contracting agency for such use. An NDI Program Plan should be developed at the beginning of the technology development phase, and should define all NDI requirements to be adhered to throughout the system life cycle. This handbook is for guidance only and cannot be cited as a requirement.
