SD-10, DEFENSE STANDARDIZATION PROGRAM: GUIDE FOR IDENTIFICATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF METRIC STANDARDS (DEC-2003)
SD-10, DEFENSE STANDARDIZATION PROGRAM: GUIDE FOR IDENTIFICATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF METRIC STANDARDS (DEC-2003)., This guide is intended to help organizations in the Department of Defense (DoD) determine
when it is necessary to develop metric specifications and standards, and the best way to express
metric units of measurement in those documents. The availability of metric documents is a
prerequisite to the development of metric-based weapon systems and equipment. This document
will help DoD program offices, standardization management activities, engineering offices,
contractors, and others meet the requirements of Section 5164, Metric Usage, of the Public Law
100-418, the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988.
