delivery date (RDD). It consists of submission time, or
the time to transmit the requisition from the requisitioner
to the stock point, plus processing and delivery time at
the stock point.
Loss by inventory (LBI). An LBI is a decrease in
the asset position based upon a physical inventory of an
Maintenance due date (MDD). The maintenance
due date of a weapon is predicated on the component of
the weapon that next requires intermediate- or
depot-level maintenance or testing. MDDs vary from
weapon to weapon and within configurations of
weapons. They are used to determine serviceability.
Weapons with an expired MDD are not serviceable.
National stock number (NSN). An NSN is a
13-digit number used to identify an item of material in
the supply distribution system of the United States. It
consists of a four-digit federal supply class (FSC) and a
nine-digit national item identification number (NIIN).
(See fig. 17-8.)
Navy ammunition reclassification (NAR) system.
NARs provide information pertaining to the degree of
serviceability of non-nuclear explosive ordnance or
explosive material used by the Navy, Marine Corps, and
Coast Guard Reclassification refers to the change of an
items material condition code. NARs are issued by
message and often contain information directly related
to the safety of personnel and/or equipment. NARs are
numbered consecutively within each calendar year and
serve as supplements to the A m m u n i t i o n
Unserviceable, Suspended, and Limited Use,
TW024-AA-ORD-010, until incorporated by a change
Receipt. A receipt is any transaction that increases
the on-hand inventory of an item, regardless of its
serviceability condition. Receipts from another ship,
activity, service, and GBIs are included.
Reconciliation. Reconciliation is the process of
reporting on-hand assets of items that have had no
transactions since the previous reconciliation. NOC
Mechanicsburg uses reconciliation reports to identify
and correct errors in individual ships or activitys data
files and in the CAIMS data base.
Serial/lot item tracking (SLIT). Serial/lot item
tracking is a subsystem of CAIMS that accounts for
certain items of ordnance by individual serial, lot, or
Temporary custody ashore. Temporary custody
ashore refers to ammunition temporarily stored ashore
by a ship that intends to reload the ammunition aboard
at a later date. It does not include ammunition held
temporarily for further transfer (FFT).
Transaction. For reporting purposes, a transaction
is any change in the reported asset posture of an
ammunition item. Examples of transactions are receipt,
reclassification from suspended to serviceable,
expenditure, and issue.
Transfer. Transfer is the movement of assets from
a Navy activity to an activity outside the Navy
accounting system such as the Army, Air Force, Coast
Guard, or a foreign government.
Type Maintenance Due Code (TMDC). A Type
Maintenance Due code is a code that indicates what
type of maintenance action is due next for an individual
Unserviceable/suspended ammunition are components
that are not ready for use and cannot be made serviceable
using immediately available maintenance and repair
capability. This includes both unserviceable items and
items suspended pending quality evaluation, test,
renovation, or ammunition reclassification. Torpedoes
and missiles that are not ready for unrestricted use or are
overdue for maintenance are considered unserviceable.
Unserviceable ammunition includes Condition codes
ECHO, FOXTROT, GOLF, HOTEL, JULIET, KILO,
LIMA, MIKE, and NOVEMBER.
MILSTRIP requisitioning is based upon the use
of the coded, single-line, item document, DD Form
1348. MILSTRIP relies upon automatic data
processing equipment and coded data for processing
requisitions. Therefore, the requisitioner must take
extreme care in selecting and assigning coded data
MILSTRIP documents consist of requisitions,
follow-ups, and cancellations. There are two different
methods for submitting ammunition MILSTRIP
documents into the ammunition supply system. The
choice and method are determined by the following
1. Submission by the Defense Automatic
Addressing System (DAAS). Submission of
MILSTRIP documents by the DAAS is the preferred
method for submitting MILSTRIP documents, unless
they are specifically excluded.
