      3. Materiel whose packaging prescription dictates the use of reusable containers will be afforded that protection throughout their life cycle. If an item's reusable container is damaged, destroyed, or lost, the last accountable activity will be responsible for repairs or replacement.
         
      4. All items will be identified with the national stock number/part number (NSN/PN) and quantity. Labels and markings will be applied as required by MIL-STD-129 and the DOD component.

Topographic

  • They identify such works of nature as valleys, lakes, mountains, vegetation, and man-made structure, including roads, major buildings and boundaries.
  • The distinguishing feature of topographic maps is the use of contour lines to show the shape and elevation of the land.
  • In effect, three-dimensional features of the landscape are shown on a two dimensional surface.

Hydrographic

  • Normally and historically for the purpose of charting a body of water for the safe navigation of shipping.
  • Hydrography is the measurement of the depths, the tides and currents of a body of water and establishment of the sea, river or lakebed topography and morphology.
  • It includes the positioning and identification of things such as wrecks, reefs, structures (platforms etc.), navigational lights, marks and buoys and coastline characteristics. It does not include water quality or composition.

Aeronautical:

  • Designed to assist in navigation of aircraft.
  • Using these charts and other tools, pilots are able to determine their position, safe altitude, best route to a destination, navigation aids along the way, alternative landing areas in case of an in-flight emergency, and other useful information such as radio frequencies and airspace boundaries.
  • Specific charts are used for each phase of a flight and may vary from a map of a particular airport facility to an overview of the instrument routes covering an entire continent (e.g., global navigation charts), and many types in between.

Digital:

  • Compressed ARC Digitized Raster Graphics (CADRG): CADRG is a Joint Services’ standard map background product. It is produced in multiple scales in support of systems with map.
  • Digital City Graphics (DCG): DCG features include important buildings, airfields, military installations, industrial complexes, embassies, government buildings, hospitals, schools, utilities, and places of worship. A guide to numbered buildings and an index to street names are provided in the margin. Contour lines are in sufficient detail to identify spurs, draws, saddles, hill tops.
  • DLA Map Catalog (DMC): The map product catalogs (excluding Volume I - Nautical Charts and Publications) are on CD-ROM and include the four product types: aeronautical, digital, hydrographic, and topographic. It is a graphical representation of National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) products available from Mapping Customer Operations (MCO).
  • VECTOR MAPS (VMAP): VMap Level 0 is the low resolution component of the VMap family of products. VMap Level 0 is a comprehensive 1:1,000,000-scale base-map of the world. It consists of geographic, attribute, and textual data stored on CD-ROMs. VMap Level 1 contains medium resolution data at the 1:250,000 scale. The VMap Level 2 program is designed to provide vector-based geospatial data at high resolution. Each layer contains thematically consistent data.

Flip:

  • It is Flight Information Publication (FLIP) which are sensitive flight critical mapping and charting type items produced by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), foreign governments and
    commercial vendors that are distributed by Defense Distribution Mapping and various civilian contractors.
  • There are three standard types of FLIP’s covering eight geographic areas throughout the world. They are produced in increments varying from 28 to 365 days. Sufficient amounts of each product are printed to be retained as DLA stock supporting the customer.

DLA Distribution Korea follows DOD guidance on the use of active RFID Tags. DLA Distribution Korea will apply one (1) active data-rich SAVI ST 654 RFID tag with full content level detail to each 20/40 Container, 463L ALOC Pallet, or one (1) tag per DODAAC/direct delivery stop.

Return excess RFID tags and to: DLA Distribution Korea. Ship the RF tags to:
TCSP
DLA Distribution Korea
Unit 15758
Camp Carroll
APO AP 96260‐5758

The following statement will be placed on the side of the shipping package: "This package contains non-regulated lithium batteries." Please ensure the battery is reversed as this not only extends the life of the battery, but stops the process of registering the tag with local RFID interrogators.

As passive RFID technology is integrated into the supply and distribution chain, DLA Distribution Korea will support this technology.
