SAFETY SUMMARY
The following are general safety precautions and instructions that people must understand and apply
during phases of operation and maintenance. Proper adherence to these instructions will ensure
personal safety and the protection of property.
Trichlorotrifluoroethane, trichloroethane and similar chemical solvents shall no longer be used for
ordinary cleaning of equipment. These substances threaten public health and the environment by
destroying ozone in the earth's upper atmosphere. Suitable non-hazardous cleaning materials will be
used instead, such as a clean cloth, water and mild detergents.
WARNING AND CAUTION STATEMENTS
WARNING and CAUTION statements will appear prior to operation and maintenance procedures,
practices, or conditions considered essential to the protection of personnel (WARNING) or equipment
and property (CAUTION). A WARNING or CAUTION will apply each time the related step is repeated.
Prior to starting any task, the WARNING and CAUTIONS included in the text for that task shall be
reviewed and understood.
WARNING
To prevent personal injury, a minimum of a "two-person" lift is required for
both the ULCANS screen system and the support system
storage/transport containers. Components may increase in weight due to
trapped or absorbed water. Use additional personnel as needed.
WARNING
To prevent personal injury, secure dog tags, remove jewelry, individual
equipment, and clothing itemsthat can become snagged during
deployment or striking of ULCANS screens. Failure to observe this
warning can result in severe injury, loss of limb, or death from falling.
WARNING
Volatile fuels and vehicle exhaust can create a fire hazard and can cause
explosions. These hazards are always present but most prevalent
during hot weather. When volatile fuels or vehicle exhaust are present
under ULCANS, steps will be undertaken to insure adequate ventilation of
the camouflaged area.
WARNING
Support poles will conduct electricity. To prevent electrical shock, do not
allow support poles to contact sources of electricity during deployment or
retrieval.
A
TM 5-1080-250-12&P
WARNING
Personnel are subject to being burned by hot components and exhausts if
deployment of the ULCANS is attempted with the equipment's engine
running or immediately after the engine is turned off. A cool down period
shall be observed prior to ULCANS deployment except in emergency
conditions; then wear hand protection and exercise extreme caution when
working in area of hot components.
WARNING
Climbing on and around the equipment to deploy ULCANS can pose a fall
hazard. Extreme caution shall be observed to avoid slippery or uneven
surfaces and other trip hazards. Use handhold when provided and
ladders when available.
WARNING
Particles of dirt and debris carried by netting/garnish can be scraped off
and fall into the operator's eyes when looking upward during setup and
takedown of ULCANS. Eye protection is required during setup and
takedown operations of ULCANS.
WARNING
Combustion by-products of ULCANS can be toxic. Evacuate the area and
stay out of the path of smoke if ULCANS systems are exposed to fire.
Self-contained breathing apparatus is required when fighting ULCANS fire.
WARNING
The radar scattering ULCANS must not be placed over active radar
equipment because it will seriously interfere with the operation of radar
equipment underneath it.
WARNING
ULCANS stakes may present a trip hazard. Drive stakes deeply to
minimize area protruding above ground. Select an area without stakes for
entry/egress through the screen.
B
TM 5-1080-250-12&P
CAUTION
Proper identification of screens must be maintained at all times. Do not
remove or lose identification tags that are attached to screens. Do not
use a transparent screen in place of a radar scattering screen. When two
or more screens are joined together, ensure that the screens are of the
same type by checking each screens' identification tag.
CAUTION
Keep screens away from all hot exhaust systems. (Includes vehicles,
heaters, stoves, etc.) Screens can be damaged if not struck and
removed from back blast area of field artillery prior to firing.
CAUTION
When using an ULCANS multi-screen configuration of 8 ft high or more,
camouflage screens can be blown down when winds exceed 46 miles per
hour. Damage to equipment may result. When winds in excess of 46
miles per hour are expected, screens will be lowered and secured.
CAUTION
Use only the ULCANS fabric of the same type and class as the ULCANS
that is being repaired.
CAUTION
It is recommended that gloves be worn at all times when working with
ULCANS. The gripping surface of the shape disruptor can cause skin
abrasions.
CAUTION
In desert environments, the support poles and metal stakes left in direct
.
sunlight can become extremely hot to touch. Wear gloves to prevent
burns
CAUTION
When using lengths of rope to make a repair, ensure cut ends are heat
sealed prior to use.

1-9.
ULCANS APPLICATIONS AND CONFIGURATION DATA.
a. The ULCANS will be used by combat troop and support units to conceal military target
signatures of weapons, vehicles, and semi- permanent positions in situations where natural cover or
concealment may be absent or inadequate. Any number of screens can be joined together to provide
cover for a large area of concealment. For typical ULCANS applications, see Figure 1-3.
1-3
TM 5-1080-250-12&P
b. The ULCANS can also be used as an aid in the concealment of permanent prominent
objects, and objects in a fixed pattern or array which present obvious targets. However, permanent
installation camouflage will usually require construction of concealment features (false roofs, dummy
buildings, garnished wire nestings, etc.). For ULCANS configuration data refer to Figure 1-4. Table
1-1 provides screen configuration dimensions.
c. To prevent the location and identification of military hardware by an enemy using visual,
infrared, or radar devices, the ULCANS can be temporarily placed over halted vehicles, weapons and
materials and over semi-permanent positions and installations.

MODULE DETERMINATION CHART
The chart in Figure 1-5 is used to determine the number of screen modules required to cover your
equipment. Table 1-1 will also aid you in making your decision.
To determine the number of screen modules, calculate "A" and "B". Find "A" value (screen width, in
feet) on the Module Determination Chart and go across to "B" value (screen length, in feet). Where
"A" and "B" intersect on the chart will give you the number of screen modules required.
Formulas A=2h + w + 5ft and B=2h + L + 5ft have been devised to determine the number of screen
modules required. Do calculations in feet.
h = height of object, in feet + 2 feet (for overhead clearance)
L = length of object, in feet
w = width of object, in feet
A = width of screen in feet
B = length of screen in feet
That part of the object which falls within the slope of about 50° can be disregarded in determining "L"
or "w". A slope of about 50° gives maximum effectiveness in camouflage.
Example: A=2 (8 ft + 2 ft) + 10 ft + 5 ft; B=2(8 ft + 2 ft) + 25 ft + 5 ft; A=35, B=50. The nearest size of
screen according to the chart is a two module configuration. Keep in mind that the formulas and
charts are guides and the selection of screens and the combinations must be tailored to the individual
situation.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Section I. OPERATION UNDER NORMAL CONDITIONS
2-1.
GENERAL .
When deploying the ULCANS over vehicles, weapons, and semi-permanent positions, care
must be exercised to prevent the garnished (top) side of the screen from tearing on sharp
corners, extruding pointed objects, or accessories such as mirrors, bumpers, antennas,
mounted armament, poles, stakes, beams, etc. If multiple screens are required, screens will
be assembled prior to deployment. When deploying ULCANS, a screen location should be
identified at the outside edge for an entry/egress doorway for personnel, equipment, or vehicles as
required. Inventory ULCANS contents and assemble multiple screen systems as required before
placing over the item to be camouflaged.
Section II. ULCANS DEPLOYMENT/RETRIEVAL INSTRUCTIONS
2-2.
DEPLOYMENT INSTRUCTIONS.
The following instructions shall apply when deploying ULCANS.
WARNING
—
The radar scattering ULCANS must not be placed over active radar
equipment because it will seriously interfere with the operation of radar
equipment underneath it.
—
To prevent personal injury, a minimum of a "two-person lift" is required for
both the ULCANS screen system and the support system storage/transport
containers. Components may increase in weight due to trapped or absorbed
water. Use additional personnel as needed
—
To prevent personal injury, secure dog tags, remove jewelry, individual
equipment, and clothing items that can become snagged during deployment
or striking of ULCANS screens. Failure to observe this warning can result in
severe injury, loss of limb or death from falling.
—
Climbing on and around the equipment to deploy ULCANS can pose a fall
hazard. Extreme caution should be observed to avoid slippery or uneven
surfaces and other trip hazards. Use handhold when provided and ladders
when available.
—
Particles of dirt and debris carried by netting/garnish can be scraped off and
fall into the operator’s eyes when looking upward during setup and takedown
of ULCANS. Eye protection is required during setup and takedown
operations of ULCANS.
2-1
TM 5-1080-250-12&P
CAUTION
Proper identification of screens must be maintained at all times. Do not
remove or lose identification tags that are attached to screens. Do not use
a transparent screen in place of a radar scattering screen. When two or
more screens are joined together, ensure that the screens are of the same
type by checking each screens' identification tag.
Keep screens away from all hot exhaust systems, (Includes vehicles,
heaters, stoves, etc.). Screens can be damaged if not struck and removed
from back blast of field artillery prior to firing.
a. ULCANS Deployment. Prior to deploying the ULCANS system personnel should
remove jewelry, individual equipment, and loose clothing items and secure dog tags that may
become snagged during deployment of screens. Wearing of eye protection and hand protection is
recommended during setup and takedown. During the movement, positioning, and deployment of
the ULCANS screen system and support systems, a two person lift minimum is required. A four
person team is recommended for multiple screen deployments. Climbing on and around
equipment during the deployment of equipment poses a fall hazard and extreme caution shall be
exercised. Caution shall be observed to avoid uneven, slippery surfaces and other trip hazards
that may be present. Use handholds when present and ladders when available. Ladders should be
used only on level firm terrain and steadied by a second person. Do not stand on top step of
ladder. During deployment keep screens away from all hot exhaust systems, vehicles, stoves,
heaters etc. Screens can be damaged if not struck and removed from back blast area of field
artillery prior to firing. To prevent snagging of screens, stow or remove equipment or accessory
items protruding from the side of vehicles, fold in external vehicle mirrors, and lower or secure
antennas. These steps will also prevent collision with support poles during vehicle movement.
WARNING
Personnel are subject to being burned by hot components and exhausts if
deployment of the ULCANS is attempted with the equipment’s engine
running or immediately after the engine is turned off. A cool down period
shall be observed prior to ULCANS deployment except in emergency
conditions; then wear hand protection and exercise extreme caution when
working in area of hot components.
b. Cool Down Period. A cool down period of equipment engines shall be observed
immediately after being turned off prior to ULCANS deployment except in emergency conditions.
Refer to the specific engine technical manual for information on the appropriate cool-down period.
Hand protection shall be worn and extreme caution exercised when working in the area of hot
components or engines.
2-2
TM 5-1080-250-12&P
c. Multiple Screen Assembly. When joining multiple screens, first spread the screens to
be joined over a level ground site free from large rocks, sharp objects and debris. ULCANS is
designed so that when joining multiple screens, pattern continuity is always maintained. Screen
positioning for pattern matching is not necessary. Assemble and secure multiple screens by
looping Beckets together. Begin looping Beckets at the highest point, work to the lowest point, and
end at the closest point to the outside edge as possible. Secure by tying a knot in the last Becket
in series. Avoid having knots high off the ground or in the center of a screen which can make the
quick separation of multiple screens difficult. For detailed multiple screen assembly refer to Figure
2-1. Roll or fold multiple screens as necessary (Figure 2-2) before placing over the item to be
camouflaged.
d. Shape Disruption. For effective concealment of vehicles, weapons, or other semipermanent objects, a minimum space of two feet between the screen and the top of the objects of
concealment is recommended unless the object is used as part of the shape disruption. Under no
circumstances should screens be draped over a vehicle or other object of concealment
without using shape disrupters. Draping the screen will show the outline and thermal signature
of the vehicle, weapon, or concealed object underneath and will allow immediate recognition by
enemy forces, thus defeating the purpose of camouflage. The support poles and shape
disrupters must be used at all times. The shape of the screen should be disrupted as much as
possible by placing support assemblies underneath the screens at various positions and heights.
When possible, avoid vertical sides when positioning shape disrupters. Slope sides outward as
much as possible, pulling edges to the ground all the way around the net system. String, twine, or
light rope may be used to connect screen to a stake that must be repositioned in rocky soil. Poles
should be installed firmly to maintain support in windy/blustery conditions. For detailed ULCANS
deployment see Figure 2-2.

WARNING
Support poles will conduct electricity. To prevent electrical shock, do not
allow support poles to contact sources of electricity during deployment or
retrieval
CAUTION
In desert environments, the support poles and metal stakes left in direct
sunlight can become extremely hot to touch. Wear gloves to prevent
burns.
e. Support Poles. For ease of assembly and disassembly of the support pole sections,
keep both ends of the support poles free from dirt, mud and foreign matter. Wipe both ends clean
before assembly. Care should be taken to prevent damage to the support pole ends, which could
cause an improper fit. Do not use support poles as pry bars. Inspect the support pole ends for
burrs or damage before assembly (see Figure 2-2). If poles have been exposed to direct sunlight
for a prolonged period, they may be very hot to touch. Wearing gloves is recommended.
f. Positioning Support Poles. When conditions require erecting the ULCANS in muddy
areas, provide support poles with a firm footing by placing the poles on top of any appropriate
material available, such as a flat rock, boards, brush, etc. When such material is not available, it
may become necessary to add another four-foot support pole section in order to reach firm footing.
Reposition support poles and shape disrupters as required.
2-13
TM 5-1080-250-12&P
CAUTION
ULCANS stakes may present a trip hazard. Drive stakes deeply to minimize
area protruding above ground. Select an area without stakes for
entry/egress through the screen.
g. Stakes. During deployment stakes should be driven to a depth so as to minimize
protrusions to prevent tripping and fall hazards. When moving, repositioning, or performing a
takedown of the ULCANS, ensure the removal of all stakes. To remove stakes, use a hammer to
tap stake side to side until ground becomes loose enough to remove stake by hand. Also, stakes
can be removed by grasping both ends of a spare stake, placing the middle of the spare stake
under the head of the stake being removed, and pulling up.
h. Special Assembly Instructions. The following special instructions apply when ULCANS
is being erected over the whip-type antennas used on SINCGARS radio sets or similar radios.
(1) Position equipment and antenna locations so as to use the Becket seams as
antenna ports. This allows antennas to fit between the seams of adjoining screens.
Ensure that screen Beckets are retied and no gaps exist between adjoining
screens and the antenna port. This method will eliminate unnecessary screen cuts
and repair time.
(2) If using the Becket seam as an antenna port is not practical, use a knife to cut a
small X-shaped incision in the screen above the whip antenna and allow the
antenna to protrude through the cut.
(3) Place all aluminum support poles a minimum distance of four feet from the
antenna.
(4) When the screen is taken down or the antenna is removed, repair the screen using
appropriate materials from the repair kit. For detailed instruction refer to Chapter 3,
Maintenance Instructions.
WARNING
2-14
—
Volatile fuels create a fire hazard and can cause explosions. This
hazard is always present but most prevalent during hot weather.
When volatile fuels are stored under ULCANS, steps will be taken
to ensure adequate ventilation of the camouflaged area.
—
Combustion by-products of ULCANS can be toxic. Evacuate the
area and stay out of the path of smoke in cases where ULCANS
systems are exposed to fire. Self-contained breathing apparatus is
required when fighting an ULCANS fire.
TM 5-1080-250-12&P
i.
Volatile Fuels and Hazardous Materials. Volatile fuels and hazardous or combustible
materials create a fire and explosion hazard. These hazards are always present but are most
prevalent during hot weather conditions. When storing hazardous or combustible materials or
volatile fuels under ULCANS, steps will be taken to ensure adequate ventilation of the camouflaged
area. In the event of fire, combustion by-products of the ULCANS can be toxic. Self-contained
breathing apparatus is required when fighting an ULCANS fire.
CAUTION
—
When using an ULCANS multi-screen configuration (of 8 ft high or
more), camouflage screens can be blown down when winds exceed
46 miles per hour. Damage to equipment may result. When winds
in excess of 46 miles per hour are expected, screens shall be
lowered and secured.
—
When heavy snow, sleet, or freezing rain is expected or occurring,
screens shall be lowered and secured.
j.
Deployment Checks. After screens are erected, they should be checked on a daily
basis for proper deployment and tightened as required. The screens should be checked more
frequently during strong winds, heavy snowfalls, sleet or freezing rain. Do not allow any great
accumulation of snow or ice to form on screens. Snow or ice must be removed from the screens
as soon as screens start to sag and begin to show signs of stress or strain due to the excessive
weight.
k. ULCANS Entry/Egress Doorway. An entry/egress doorway for the ULCANS can be
created as required using a Becket seam. For personnel to enter or leave the deployed ULCANS,
tie off a Becket seam approximately four feet from the ground and position stakes so that the
Becket seam will remain closed. Personnel may loosen a stake strap and fold the seam back to
enter or exit. Make sure to replace the material and stake strap after use. If a Becket seam is
placed in front of a concealed vehicle, the vehicle can exit quickly using the following steps:
(1) Untie the Becket seam enough to let the vehicle pass through (See Figure 2-3).
(2) Fold back the camouflage screen to avoid snagging on the vehicle.
(3) Reposition the poles and shape disrupters as necessary to create a doorway. For
large vehicles, place two poles of three pole segments each with shape disrupters
(dependent upon camouflaged items/vehicle) at or near doorway entrance/exit. If
necessary, personnel may raise and hold the poles to provide the necessary
clearance for the vehicle to enter or exit.

RETRIEVAL INSTRUCTIONS, MULTIPLE SCREEN CONFIGURATION.
a. Normal retrieval. Retrieval of ULCANS under normal conditions consists of dismantling
the screens and folding or rolling the screen modules (see Figure 2-2).
(1)
Camouflaged item(s) shall be removed from under the ULCANS area, support
poles and shape disrupters removed, and screen system lowered. Remove all
ground stakes.
(2)
Spread ULCANS over level ground site free of large rocks, sharp objects and
debris. Separate multiple screens as required. Repair screen as necessary, if
time permits. Remove leaves, twigs, dirt or other foreign matter prior to folding
and stowing in carrying cases. Wipe mud/dirt from support poles and anchor
stakes before stowing. Inventory system prior to stowing for storage/transport.
b. Folding Instructions, ULCANS. Perform the following procedures for folding the
ULCANS for transporting and/or storage. Refer to applicable steps in Figure 2-2.
(1)
Hexagonal Screen System. Spread the hexagonal screen on a flat surface.
(a) At the center of the hexagonal screen, pick up a length (approximately 2
feet) of screen from either side and make an S-shaped fold to the center of
the screen.
(b) Pick up an equal length of screen from the opposite side and make an Sshaped fold on top of the first fold.
(c) Continue to make S-shaped accordion folds of equal size in the same
manner until the hexagonal screen is completely folded.
2-16
TM 5-1080-250-12&P
d)
(2)
Each end is then folded alternately in 4 to 5 foot lengths towards the center
to create a rectangle approximately 2 feet wide and four feet long. Secure
folded screen in storage bag.
Rhombic Screen System. Spread the rhombic (diamond shaped) screen out on
flat ground.
(a) At the center of the rhombic screen, pick up a length (approximately 2 feet)
of screen from either side and make an S-shaped fold to the center of the
screen.
(b) Pick up an equal length of screen from the opposite side and make an Sshaped fold on top of the first fold.
(c) Continue to make S-shaped accordion folds of equal size in the same
manner until the rhombic screen is completely folded.
(d) Each end is then folded alternately in 4 to 5 foot lengths towards the center
to create a rectangle approximately 2 feet wide and four feet long. Secure
folded screen in storage bag.
c. Roll Method for Multiple Screens. If necessary, leave multiple screens assembled
during redeployment or movements to save time. For transporting or storage of assembled
multiple screens, a roll method is recommended due to the bulk and weight. To save redeployment
time, the rolled screens should stay with the same object they concealed previously.
Recommended rolling and unrolling methods are described below. Refer to Figure 2-2.
(1)
Spread assembled multiple screens on flat ground, garnish side up. Fold two
longest outside edges to meet in the center of the screen area. Roll the folded
outside edges to meet in the center. Select one end of rolled screen and roll
toward the center, then roll the other end in the same manner. Use available
rope or strong twine to secure roll as necessary.
(2)
To redeploy screens, place the rolled-up screens in the center of the object to be
covered. Orient screens so that the longest outside edges, which unroll first, will
cover the proper areas. Unroll screen outward in both directions from the center,
then unroll and unfold from the sides. Make sure that Becket seams used for
ingress/egress are placed properly. When position of screens is correct, proceed
with installation of poles and stakes.
d. Special Tools. There are no special tool requirements for deploying, retrieving, or
maintaining the ULCANS. A hammer for driving stakes is required. A trenching tool or shovel for
leveling or clearing the area is recommended. Appendix E lists a hammer and additional
authorized items.

TM 5-1080-250-12&P
Section III. OPERATION UNDER UNUSUAL CONDITIONS
2-4.
OPERATING UNDER UNUSUAL CONDITIONS.
Operation under unusual conditions includes deployment in inclement weather and retrieval in
emergency conditions. When operating in unusual conditions it may be necessary to use longer
stakes to accommodate soil or other varying conditions. Additional stake NSNs can be found in
Appendix E, Additional Authorization List.
WARNING
— When using an ULCANS multi-screen configuration (of 8 ft high or
more), camouflage screens can be blown down when winds exceed 46
miles per hour. Damage to equipment may result. When winds in
excess of 46 miles per hour are expected, screens shall be lowered and
secured.
— When heavy freezing rain, sleet or snow is expected or occurring, screens shall be
lowered and secured.
CAUTION
In desert environments, the support poles and metal stakes left in direct
sunlight can become extremely hot to touch. Wear gloves to prevent
burns.
a.
b.
Inclement Weather.
(1)
When high winds in excess of 46 miles per hour are occurring or are expected,
the ULCANS should be lowered and secured. During gusty windy conditions
frequent checks should be made to ensure that stakes and tiedown points remain
secure to prevent billowing and sagging.
(2)
When heavy freezing rain, sleet or snow is expected or occurring, screens shall
be lowered and secured. During inclement weather conditions such as snow,
rain, and sleet, more frequent checks should be made for signs of stress or
strain.
Emergency Retrieval:
(1)
2-18
Remove camouflaged item(s)/vehicle from underneath ULCANS prior to retrieval
when possible. If removal is not possible and separation of multiple screens is
not required, then support poles and shape disrupters should be removed from
underneath and away from camouflaged item(s)/vehicle to prevent damage or
injury to personnel during retrieval. Remove all ground stakes. On large
vehicles such as trucks, tanks, Patriot Missile system, or Stinger Man-Pads, etc.
it may be easier to keep ULCANS pre-attached, rolled, and secured to the top or
side of vehicle.
TM 5-1080-250-12&P
(2)
When required, the multiple screen assemblies may be separated while
the ULCANS is deployed. Remove camouflaged item(s)/vehicle from
underneath ULCANS prior to retrieval when possible. If removal is not
possible, then support poles and shape disrupters should be removed
from underneath and away from vicinity of the camouflaged
item(s)/vehicle to prevent damage. Leaning support poles away from
the multiple assembly point will allow for screen separation to occur
when Becket knot is untied, releasing Beckets. Pressure of screen
weight and angle of support poles will provide Becket separation. This
procedure will allow remaining screens to collapse. Personnel should
use caution and remain away from area of falling support poles and
shape disrupters. Remove all ground stakes.

SCREEN MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES.
a.
All maintenance functions can be performed at the operator/crew or unit level.
b.
No special tools are required for maintaining or repairing ULCANS.
c.
Maintenance consists of cleaning and repairing tears in screens.
(1) Cleaning Screen Systems:
(a) Fill two containers which will hold a camouflage screen (such as 55-gallon
drums) with water, preferably warm if available.
(b) If using warm water, add sufficient mild detergent to one of the containers to form
a soapy mixture. If cold water is used a liquid detergent is recommended.
3-1
TM 5-1080-250-12&P
(c) Place the camouflage screen into the soapy water. Agitate the screen to remove
dirt and any foreign matter.
(d) When the screen is clean, remove it from the soapy water and place into
container with clean rinse water and agitate. After rinsing hang screen to dry.
Ensure screen is dry before re-packaging to prevent mildew.
CAUTION
—
Only use ULCANS fabric of the same type and class as the ULCANS
screen that is being repaired.
—
Proper identification of screens must be maintained at all times. Do
not remove or lose identification tags that are attached to screen. Do
not use a transparent screen in place of a radar scattering screen.
When two or more screens are joined together, ensure that the
screens are of the same type by checking each screen's
identification tag.
—
When using lengths of rope to make a repair, ensure cut ends are
heat sealed prior to use.
(2) To repair screens:
(a) There are no separate repair requirements for ULCANS garnish or netting
material. These are not considered separate parts of the screen material.
(b) To repair a section of damaged screen material, select a piece of camouflage
screen material from the screen repair kit that blends in well with the surrounding
area being replaced and is of the correct type and class.
(c) Trim away ragged or tattered material from damaged area.
(d) Position repair material and attach to existing screen using tiedown straps from
the repair kit as required. It is recommended that the edges of the area of the
screen to be repaired be overlapped slightly when making the repair. If tiedown
straps are not available then secure screen repair materials using twine, cord,
string or lightweight rope, see Appendix F.
(e) When replacing a piece of screen material or repairing a tear, ensure mated
material is tightly secured to prevent loose material or gaps at adjoining seams.
d. A missing or broken Becket loop may be bypassed when multiple screens are being
assembled by looping through the next available Becket loop. However, it is recommended that when
more than one Becket in a row is missing or broken, a Becket should be replaced using any available
piece of tie material such as tiedown straps, twine, cord, string, etc. Refer to Figure 3-1 for detailed
instructions for repair of camouflage screens.

MAINTENANCE ALLOCATION CHART (MAC)
Section I. INTRODUCTION
B-1. The Army Maintenance System MAC
This introduction provides a general explanation of all maintenance and repair functions authorized at
various maintenance levels under the standard Army Maintenance System concept.
The MAC (immediately following the introduction) designates overall authority and responsibility for the
performance of maintenance functions on the identified end item or component. The application of the
maintenance functions to the end item or component shall be consistent with the capacities and
capabilities of the designated maintenance levels, which are shown on the MAC in column (4) as:
Unit — includes two subcolumns, C (operator/crew) and O (unit) maintenance.
Direct Support — includes an F subcolumn.
General Support — includes an H subcolumn.
Depot — includes a D subcolumn.
The tools and test equipment requirements (immediately following the MAC) list the tools and test
equipment (both special tools and common tool sets) required for each maintenance function as
referenced from the MAC.
The remarks (immediately following the tools and test equipment requirements) contain supplemental
instructions and explanatory notes for a particular maintenance function.
B-2. Maintenance Functions
Maintenance functions are limited to and defined as follows:
1. Inspect. To determine the serviceability of an item by comparing its physical, mechanical, and/or
electrical characteristics with established standards through examination (e.g., by sight, sound, or feel).
This includes scheduled inspection and gagings and evaluation of cannon tubes.
2. Test. To verify serviceability by measuring the mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic, or electrical
characteristics of an item and comparing those characteristics with prescribed standards on a scheduled
basis, i.e., load testing of lift devices and hydrostatic testing of pressure hoses.
3. Service. Operations required periodically to keep an item in proper operating condition; e.g., to clean
(includes decontaminate, when required), to preserve, to drain, to paint, or to replenish fuel, lubricants,
chemical fluids, or gases. This includes scheduled exercising and purging of recoil mechanisms.
4. Adjust. To maintain or regulate, within prescribed limits, by bringing into proper position, or by setting
the operating characteristics to specified parameters.
5. Align. To adjust specified variable elements of an item to bring about optimum or desired performance.
B-1
TM 5-1080-250-12&P
6. Calibrate. To determine and cause corrections to be made or to be adjusted on instruments of test,
measuring, and diagnostic equipment used in precision measurement. Consists of comparisons of two
instruments, one of which is a certified standard of known accuracy, to detect and adjust any discrepancy
in the accuracy of the instrument being compared.
7. Remove/Install. To remove and install the same item when required to perform service or other
maintenance functions. Install may be the act of emplacing, seating, or fixing into position a spare, repair
part, or module (component or assembly) in a manner to allow the proper functioning of an equipment or
system.
8. Replace. To remove an unserviceable item and install a serviceable counterpart in its place. "Replace"
is authorized by the MAC and assigned maintenance level is shown as the third position code of the
Source, Maintenance and Recoverability (SMR) code.
9. Repair. The application of maintenance services, including fault location/troubleshooting,
removal/installation, disassembly/assembly procedures, and maintenance actions to identify troubles and
restore serviceability to an item by correcting specific damage, fault, malfunction, or failure in a part,
subassembly, module (component or assembly), end item, or system.
NOTE
The following definitions are applicable to the "repair" maintenance function:
Services — Inspect, test, service, adjust, align, calibrate, and/or replace.
Fault location/troubleshooting — The process of investigating and detecting the cause
of equipment malfunctioning; the act of isolating a fault within a system or Unit Under
Test (UUT).
Disassembly/assembly — The step-by-step breakdown (taking apart) of a
spare/functional group coded item to the level of its least component, that is assigned
an SMR code for the level of maintenance under consideration (i.e., identified as
maintenance significant).
Actions — Welding, grinding, riveting, straightening, facing, machining, and/or
resurfacing.
10. Overhaul. That maintenance effort (service/action) prescribed to restore an item to a completely
serviceable/operational condition as required by maintenance standards in appropriate technical
publications. Overhaul is normally the highest degree of maintenance performed by the Army. Overhaul
does not normally return an item to like new condition.
11. Rebuild. Consists of those services/actions necessary for the restoration of unserviceable equipment
to a like new condition in accordance with original manufacturing standards. Rebuild is the highest degree
of materiel maintenance applied to Army equipment. The rebuild operation includes the act of returning to
zero those age measurements (e.g., hours/miles) considered in classifying Army equipment/components.

Recommend that the installation antenna alignment
procedure be changed throughout to specify a 20 IFF
antenna lag rather than 10.
REASON: Experience has shown that with only a 10 lag,
the antenna servo system is too sensitive to wind gusting in
excess of 25 knots, and has a tendency to rapidly accelerate
and decelerate as it hunts, causing strain to the drive train.
Hunting is minimized by adjusting the lag to 20 without
degradation of operation.
