Each of the Military Services, as well as the Office of the Secretary of DefenseOSD, uses its own nomenclature for test equipment. For purposes of this report, we use the term test equipment as a specific category of support equipment i.e., electricelectronic test, measurement, and diagnostic equipmentTMDE, defined to include manual electronic test equipment ETE, automatic test equipment ATE, test program sets, and calibration equipment. This volume reviews and assesses current Department of Defense DoD policy on test equipment management and support. Although no directives of instructions specifically address test equipment, many are concerned with the management and support of materiel, including test equipment. These latter directives and instructions are reviewed here for the management functions of standardization, acquisition, life cycle support, inventory management, cataloging, and readiness monitoring. Those reviews are presented in Chapter 2 of this volume, while Chapter 3 assesses the overall adequacy of current DoD policy. Author
