TO 00-5-1, TECHNICAL MANUAL: AF TECHNICAL ORDER SYSTEM (ATOS) (01-MAY-2011) [SUPERSEDES TO 00-5-1 (PRIOR REVISIONS)]. The Air Force Technical Order (TO) system provides clear and concise instructions for the safe and effective operation and maintenance of centrally-acquired and managed Air Force military systems and end items.
The Air Force TO System is established by Air Force Policy Directive (AFPD) 63-1/20-1, Acquisition and Sustainment Life Cycle Management, and Air Force Instruction (AFI) 63-101, Acquisition and Sustainment Life Cycle Management. This TO provides guidance and general management procedures for the Air Force TO System. This TO identifies and explains the various types of TOs (Figure 2-1), management tools, and procedures for TO accounts, ordering TOs, recommending TO updates, etc. References and related publications, related forms, acronyms and terms used in this TO are listed in the Glossary, Appendix A.
When consulting this TO for procedural information (for example, ordering TOs), the reader should consider reading the appropriate chapter from the major chapter heading down to the detailed subparagraph of interest. This will provide the user with context and common information associated with the detailed procedure. However, the table of contents includes direct links to subparagraphs for experienced users. The TO is also“text searchable” should the user require information on a specific topic.
Additional information about the TO system may be accessed through the TO System Information Page at https://techdata.wpafb.af.mil/toprac/to-syste.htm.
