GROUP 58 Communication, Detection, and Coherent Radiation Equipment Note-Excludes oscillator items which should be classified in FSC 5955 or

5963; fiber optic items which should be classified in Group 60; electronic modules as defined under Class

5963; and electrical cable, cord and wire as- semblies, harnesses and sets, related to FSG 58 equipment (see FSC 5995). In Group 58, more than in any other group, it frequently happens that the same name is listed as an index entry in each of several classes. In addi- tion, that name may also appear as an entry in groups other than 58. Each such entry refers to a distinctly different part or assembly, even though the different items have the same name. The listing of the same names in two or more classes indicates that, in one form, the part or assembly covered by the name is ap- plicable to the equipment covered by one class, and in another form is applicable to the equipment covered by another class. For ex- ample, the item name CODER, AUDIO FRE- QUENCY is applicable to two distinctly differ- ent assemblies, one of which has an application in cryptologic equipment, covered by Class

5810, and the other in radar equip- ment covered by Class

5840. Consequently the name CODER, AUDIO FREQUENCY is an entry under each of the two classes. When an item identification bears a name which is indexed under more than one class of Group 58, or in Group 58 and in some other group, the item will be classified in the same class as its next higher assembly in the manner de- scribed in the Federal Logistics Information System (FLIS) Procedures Manual, DoD

4100.39-M. Also excluded from this group are data tranission and commmunications equip- ment such as terminals, sensors and other devices designed for use with a configuration of ADPE.

5836 Video Recording and Reproducing Equipment Note This class includes, and is re- stricted to electronic video equipment such as video monitors, televisions, cam- eras, printers and recorders/reproducers used with miscellaneous communication equipment. Also included is associated equipment such as cleaners, splicers, re- winders, reels and tapes designed for use with video recording-reproducing equip- ment. Excluded from the class is photo- graphic type equipment (Group 67), ADP type computer monitors (Group 70), and video equipment which includes radio receivers/transmitters (properly classi- fied in more specific classes in Group 58).

5840 Radar Equipment, Except Airborne Note-Radar assemblies and subas- semblies designed specifically for use with fire control equipment or guided mis- siles are excluded from this class and are included in the appropriate classes of Group 12 or Group 14.

5841 Radar Equipment, Airborne Note-Radar assemblies and subas- semblies designed specifically for use with fire control equipment or guided mis- siles are excluded from this class and are included in the appropriate classes of Group 12 or Group 14.

5845 Underwater Sound Equipment Note-This class excludes items specifi- cally designed for fire control sonar sys- tems. Includes Sonar Equipment; Underwater Listening Equipment; Sonobuoys; Sonobuoy Launchers; Fathometers; So- far Equipment.

5850 Visible and Invisible Light Communication Equipment Note-This class includes only commu- nication types of infrared equipment. Ex- cluded from this class are infrared as- semblies, subassemblies, and components designed specifically for use in fire control systems, guided missile systems, test and maintenance special- ized equipment, night vision equipment, and other noncommunication types of equipment. Includes Heliographs.

5855 Night Vision Equipment, Emitted and Reflected Radiation Note-This class includes image form- ing devices and associated aids, their subassemblies and components, utilizing passive and/or active techniques for de- tection, observation, and identification of terrain and objects at night, while main- taining concealment afforded by dark- ness. Includes items having multiapplica- tion for purposes of fire control, and/or night observation, and/or detection. Ex- cluded from this class are items for which more specific classifications are suitable as prescribed by the structure and in- dexes of the FSC. Includes Sighting and Observation De- vices, Target Detectors and Locators, Re- mote Viewing Systems utilizing heat ra- diation emitted from object(s), associated Radiation Sources, Image Converters and Image Intensifiers, Optical Cells and other components designed for Night Vi- sion Equipment. Holders and Lens used with Infrared Equipment are also included in this FSC. Excludes Optical Sighting devices which incorporate both day and night viewing characteristics within an integral unit for fire control purpose, nonnight vision type items designed for use with guided mis- siles, communications, or laboratory equipment, and Optical Elements, such as Lens, Prisms, Windows.

5860 Stimulated Coherent Radiation Devices, Components, and Accessories Note-This class includes, and is re- stricted to, devices the operation of which is based on principles involving the stimu- lated emission of radiation, and to asso- ciated components and accessories di- rectly related to stimulated coherent radiation techniques. The methods for producing the radiation are those ob- tained by LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) and by MASER (Microwave and/or Molecular Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) techniques. Only those items specifically designed for stimulated co- herent radiation applications, and having no other application, are to be included in this class. Assemblies or major systems containing such devices are excluded from this class.

5865 Electronic Countermeasures, Counter-Countermeasures and Quick Reaction Capability Equipment Note-This class includes, and is re- stricted to, passive and active electronic equipment, systems, and subsystems designed to prevent or reduce an en- emy's effective use of radiated electro- magnetic energy or designed to insure our own effective use of radiated electro- magnetic energy. Includes Electronic Countermeasures, Electronic Counter- Countermeasures, Electronic Support Measures, and Quick Reaction Capabil- ity Equipment and components specially designed therefore which are not classifi- able elsewhere in the FSC Structure. Ex- cluded from this class are non-electronic items which are properly classified in more specific classes in accordance with the FSC structure and indexes.

5895 Miscellaneous Communication Equipment Note-This class includes miscella- neous communication equipment that is not classified in more specific classes (see the NOTE for FSG 58). Includes Modems. Excludes Electronic Countermeasures Equipment.
