U. S. Defense Standards “Mil Specs” and Unified Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS)

mil spec testing

The United States Department of Defense has over 20,000 standards, often referred to as “Mil Specs” that ensure that product purchased for use by the U.S. Military meet the required quality. Unified Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS) are a joint effort of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (HQ AFCEC) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). UFGS are for use in specifying construction process and materials, including coating materials, for the military services.
