Taken from the ASSIST website. ASSIST is the official source for specifications and standards used by the United States Department of Defense. ASSIST provides free access to Defense Standardization Program technical documents that have been cleared for public release.

In our opinion, the ASSIST website can be difficult and time-consuming to navigate. So we just went ahead and put it on our website, since it’s in the public domain.
