NPFC - MIL-STD-1587
MATERIALS AND PROCESS REQUIREMENTS FOR AIR FORCE WEAPON SYSTEMS
|Publication Date:||21 July 1992|
This standard establishes the requirements for materials and processes used during design and production of aerospace weapon systems. When used in conjunction with MIL-STD-1530, the other integrity program documents (MIL-STD-1783, 1798, 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.
This standard is applicable for use by all Air Force procuring activities and their respective contractors involved in the design and procurement of aerospace weapon systems. Numerous materials and processes used in propulsion and electronic subsystems and ground support equipment are not specifically covered by this standard.
This standard is intended to provide Air Force Systems Program Offices with a procurement document that provides timely and comprehensive consideration during systems design of the limitations... View More
This standard is intended to provide Air Force Systems Program Offices with a procurement document that provides timely and comprehensive consideration during systems design of the limitations of materials and processes and of the lessons learned over the years from operational systems worldwide. 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 which will meet the requirements of the system being designed in accordance with MIL-STD-1530 and other integrity program documents.View Less
