HANDBOOK: INSPECTION PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS NONDESTRUCTIVE FOR AIRCRAFT AND MISSILE MATERIALS AND PARTS (14-FEB-2012)., This handbook provides guidance to government personnel and contractors for defining the requirements for establishing an acceptable Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) program for the development, production, and sustainment phases of DoD aircraft and missile structural components when directly referenced in the item specification contract or order. This handbook is for guidance only and cannot be cited as a requirement. This handbook applies to structures for aircraft and missiles when the design activity or system specification requires nondestructive inspection for production acceptance, and recurring nondestructive inspection for long-term sustainment. This handbook may also be applicable to mechanical equipment, subsystems and propulsion systems but the guidance should be tailored for such use. This handbook applies to all phases of the system life cycle; acquisition, modification and sustainment. The NDI Program Plan should be developed at the beginning of the development phase and should define all NDI requirements to be adhered to during system development, test, production, and sustainment.
