of such procedures, including additional tests, when deemed necessary.
Reconditioning of Tested Equipment - Equipment which has been subjected
to acceptance and life tests shall be reconditioned by the contractor by replacing all wear or
damaged items. After reworking the contractor shall resubmit the equipment for acceptance.
Presubmission Testing - No item, part or complete equipment shall
be submitted by the contractor until it has been previously tested and inspected by the con-
tractor and found to comply, to the best of his knowledge and belief, with all applicable
Rejection and Retest - Equipment which has been rejected maybe re-

PREPARATION FOR DELIVERY
General - All major units and parts of the equipment shall be preserved,
packaged, packed and marked for the level of shipment specified in the contract or order
in accordance with Specification MIL-E-17555.
Intended Use - The equipment shall be used in conjunction with the items
listed in 6.9.1 to fulfill the requirements of Programmer, Aircraft Weapons Release Set
MX-7016 (*/AWE-l as described in Specification MIL-P-81361 (AS).
Test Values - Normal and limiting values of performance data shall be
determined at input voltages of 27.5 + 0. 5 vdc and 115 + 1. O vac as applicable. These data
are to be used in testing the equipment at installation points for compliance with minimum
acceptance standard of performance.
Performance Objectives - Minimum size and weight, simplicity of oper-
ation, ease of maintenance, and an improvement in the performance and reliability of the .
specific functions beyond the requirements of this specification are objectives which shall be
considered in the production of this equipment. Where it appears a substantial reduction in
size and weight or improvement in simplicity of design, performance, ease of maintenance
or reliability will result from the use of materials, parts and processes other than those
specified in Specification MIL-E-5400, it is desired their use be investigated, When inves-
tigation shows advantages can be realized, a request for approval shall be submitted to the
procuring activity for consideration. Each request shall be accompanied by complete sup-
