rectangular or square
An electronic device whose video frequency input signals control power from a source independent of the input signals, and delivers output signals of greater amplitude with respect to current and/or voltage. The output signals characteristics are uniformly related to the input signals. It is generally used in equipment in which the electrical impulses are converted into visual presentation by means of cathode ray tubes or other items.
OPI: Optional Procedure Indicator Code. A one position alpha code that indicates the allowable deviations from the prescribed requirements.
SPI No.: Special packaging instructions number.
LVL A/B/C: Indicates the type of shipping container required for level A, B, or C maximum packing protection.
SPC Mkg: A two position code that identifies the special markings applied to the container, which is part of the total pack to protect the contained item during preservation, packing, storage, transit and removal from the pack.

NAIC: North American Industry Classification. Classifies items and business activity for the purpose of collecting, analyzing, and publishing statistical data related to the U.S. business economy.
SITC: Standard International Trade Classification.
NMFC: National motor freight classification. A six position numeric code, which divides articles into groups or classes according to physical characteristics. the classification is based on truckloads vs. less than truckload.
UFC: Universal freight classification. a five position numeric code, which divides articles into groups or classes according to physical characteristics. the classification is based on carload vs. less than carload.
LTL: Less than a truckload rating.
LCL: Less than a carload rating.
WCC: Water commodity code. A three position code that indicates all shipments via water.
TCC: Type of Cargo Code. A one position code for all shipments via water to identify the type of cargo included within the shipment unit.
SHC: Special Handling Code. A one position code for all shipments via water to identify the exception handling required for cargo included within the shipment unit
ADC: Air Dimension Code. A one position alpha code that identifies dimensional characteristics of air shipments by relating the length, width, or height dimensions of the largest piece to the minimum size cargo door opening of an aircraft

Indicates there is no data in the hmirs and the nsn is in a fsc not generally suspected of containing hazardous materials.
Precious metal content is unknown
Represents items with no adp components
The item does not have a nuclear hardened feature or any other critical feature such as tolerance, fit restriction or application.
HMIC: Hazardous Material Indicator Code. A one position code that identifies a hazardous item.
PMIC: Precious Metal Indicator Code. A one position code which identifies items that have precious metals as part of their content. precious metals are those metals generally considered to be uncommon, highly valuable, and relatively superior in certain properties such as resistance to corrosion and electrical conductivity.
ESD: Electrostatic Discharge. Indicates if an item is susceptible to electrostatic discharge or electromagnetic interference damage. electrostatic discharge damage occurs when an accumulation of static electricity generated by the relative motion or separation of materials is released to another item by direct contact. electromagnetic interference damage occurs when an item comes into proximity with an electrostatic or magnetic field.
ENAC: Enviromental Attribute Code. Identifies items with environmentally preferred characteristics.
CRITL: Criticality Indicator Code. Indicates an item is technically critical by tolerance, fit, application, nuclear hardness properties, or other characteristics.
MOE is an acronym for "Major Organizational Entity".
These organizations represent a subdivision of a U.S. governmental organization or an agency of the north atlantic treaty organization (NATO), and other friendly governments and international organizations participating in the federal catalog program.
DSOR: Depot Source of Repair. Department of Defense (DOD) policies require that program man- agers seek best value in depot maintenance support and that the department maintains organic core depot maintenance capabilities. These policies are implemented through the Depot Source of Re- pair (DSOR) decision process.
MOE Rule: a four position code that reflects management responsibility within participating military services, civil agencies, nato and other foreign countries. the information included in the moe rule is a combination of department of defense (dod) and service/agency cataloging/supply management assignments which are made on the basis of organizational responsibilities.
NIMSC: Nonconsumable Item Material Support Code.
