This document provides the means for establishing a system of mass properties management and control during the acquisition phases (pre-concept, concept exploration, demonstration/validation, engineering & manufacturing development, production & deployment, operation & support, major modification) of heavier-than-air aircraft programs. It contains a set of recommended practices from which selection may be made or tailored to satisfy the discrete requirements of each program.


This document is also applicable to Uninhabited Air Vehicles (UAVs) which are re-usable and/or re-configurable in the field. For UAVs that are not re-usable and not re-configurable in the field, see Recommended Practice No. 9, Weight and Balance Control System for Guided Missiles.
