4. General Requirements
4.1 The contractor shall consider system and equipment measurement requirements during all phases of design, development and production. He shall identify all parameters that must be measured to ensure proper and accurate operation of the system and equipment. The system shall be designed to reduce maintenance by keeping the frequency, number, and duration of the tests required to verify system operation to a minimum. A TRD prepared in accordance with MIL-STD-1519 may provide the basis for documenting parameters.

|MIL STD- Calibration and Measurement Requirements.PDF
This standard described the requirements to provide means for calibration, verification, and measurement traceability of all system, subsystem, and equipment parameters that must be measured to ensure system and eequipment operational integrity and accuracy. it describes the process of establishing measurement tracebaility from actual system and equipment level measurement requirements to the National Bureau of Standards (NBS) or other approved measurement sources. These measurement requirements are traced through properly selected and calibrated test, measurement, and diagnostic equipment (TMDE) or appropriate measurement sensors, through the US Air Force Precision Measurement Equipment Laboratories (PMELs) or other military services' (Army or Navy ) equivalent or commercial calibration facilities, to approved national measurement standards.
