(2) Vibration Test (commutes cycling in each of 3 planes)
(3) Humidity Tests
Equipment Failure - Should a failure occur during either the sampling
or special tests, the following action shall be taken:
(1) Determine the cause of failure.
(2) Determine if the failure is an isolated case or design defect.
(3) Submit to the procuring activity for approval, proposed corrective action in-
tended to reduce the possibility of the same failure(s) occurring in future tests.
(4) Where practical, include a test in the individual test to check all equipment for
this requirement until reasonable assurance is obtained that the defect has
been satisfactory corrected,
Test Procedures - The procedures used for conducting preproduction tests and
acceptance tests shall be prepared by the contractor and submitted to the procuring activity
for review and approval, The right is reserved by the procuring activity to modify-the tests or re
quire any additional tests deemed necessary to determine compliance with the requirements of
this specification or the contract, Specification MI L-T- 18303 shall be used as a guide for prepar-
ation of test procedures. When test procedures are available from previous contracts such pro-
cedures may be used when approved by the procuring activity.
Presubmission Testing - No item, part or complete equipment shall be submitted
by the contractor until it has been previously tested and inspected by the contractor and found to
comply, to the best of his knowledge and belief, with all applicable requirements
Rejection and Retest - Equipment which has been rejected may be reworked or have
parts replaced to correct the defects and resubmitted for acceptance. Before resubmitting, full
particulars concerning previous rejection and the action taken to correct the defects found in the

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.
Performance Objectives - Minimum size and weight, simplicity of operation,
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-T-21200, it is desired their use be investigated. When investigation shows advantages can
