MIL-F-13926 Revision B, “Fire Control Materiel, Manufacture and Inspection, General Specification For,” has been brought back from “limbo” with the release of the new Reactivation Notice 2, replacing the Inactivation Notice 1 from 1995. The specification covers the general requirements for the procurement, manufacture and inspection of systems, components and assemblies used in fire control material. It is available now from Document Center Inc. in both paper and pdf format.
The Inactivation Notice 1 from February 1995 made the specification inactive for new design so that it should have only been used for replacement purposes (repairing or supporting existing applications). However, with the release of the new Reactivation Notice 2 on June 5, 2012, MIL-F-13926B may be used for either new or existing design acquisition. By the way, the MIL-F-13926 replaced the cancelled MIL-STD-1242, “Machining Standards for Fire Control Material,” back in 1984.
At Document Center Inc., we continue to monitor customer purchases even when the documents have been inactivated or cancelled. The reason why is that you can never tell when a document that the caretaker thinks is obsolete may be actually widely used by the supporting vendor base. This disparity sometimes results in the caretaker reevaluating the rationale for supporting the technology for the sake of the user base. To miss this type of transition could be as harmful to your business as missing a new revision level release.
