sample. The contractor shall provide to the Government the
inspection records, including certificates of conformance, for the
sample. The contractor shall also provide a list of all changes,
deviations, and waivers under the contract. The sample shall be
tested for reliability as represented by the requirements of 3.7.1
through 3.7.4. Testing shall be performed in accordance with the
procedures specified in 4.7.1 through 4.7.3.
Defects resulting from reliability assurance
testing may be assessed as sufficient evidence that the
contractor's production processes or quality control procedures
do not provide adequate assurance against product reliability
degration. Upon identification by the Government to the
contractor, of the specific quality defect(s) found, the
contractor shall determine and apply effective and immediate
corrective action to improve his production processes or quality
control procedures, as necessary to eliminate the defect(s) from
telescopes not yet delivered under the contract.
Whenever reliability assurance test results
require corrective action by the contractor, a retest sample shall
be selected in accordance with 4.6 except that the sample shall be
selected from the first 10 telescopes produced subsequent to
implementation of the corrective action. The retest sample shall
be subjected only to the reliability test(s) which revealed the
184.108.40.206 Inspeciton after retest. Inspection of the sample
after retest shall be conducted by the Government and shall be in
accordance with 220.127.116.11. Final acceptance inspection, except
characteristics 301 and 302 of Table II. Reappearance of the
previous defect(s), 4.6.2, may be cause for the Government to
prescribe mandatory process corrective action by the contractor at
no additional cost to the Government.
4.7.1 Storage and operating temperatures. The telescope
shall be subjected to one cycle of temperature variations in
accordance with Table III. Upon completion of Sequence 1 and 4
soak periods (Storage), the telescope shall be visually and
tactually examined to insure conformance with requirements of
3.7.1. Upon completion of Sequence 2 and 4 soak periods
(Operating), the telescope shall be visually and tactually
examined to assure conformance with the requirements of 3.12.
Following completion of Sequence 3 and 5 soak periods (Room
temperature), the telescope shall meet all the requirements of
3.7.6 through 3.13.1.
