    The growth of nondestructive testing (NDT) technology, its control documentation, application philosophy, and management of its specifications tree are traced from 1920 to the present. The status of military documents on NDT relative to the technology is discussed, inadequacies are defined, and problems resulting from the gap are listed. Although the technology has grown far beyond the scope of coverage in military specifications and standards, this situation can be remedied by the several approaches which are suggested. Three recommendations are made as a suggested optimum, implementable, solution.
