MIL STD 1763

This handbook provides uniform guidance requirements for establishing the extent of compatibility between an aircraft, specific stores, and suspension equipment and guidance to justify the airworthiness of stores for use on an aircraft. This handbook defines all the engineering data package requirements and provides standard test methodology, test instrumentation and data to be obtained from each test to establish the extent of aircraft/stores compatibility. By this standardization, responsible agencies may then be assured that a test run by any agency to this handbook will provide the same data they would require, thereby facilitating the transfer of data between agencies and eliminating the unnecessary duplication of tests. Figure 1 provides an outline for the certification process and figure 2 provides a generic timeline for the activities that are expected to take place during a certification project.
