This standard and its related handbook, NASA-HDBK-6003, Application of Data Matrix Identification Symbols to Aerospace Parts Using Direct Part Marking Methods/Techniques (DPM), were developed to provide NASA and its contractors with instructions to safely apply Data Matrix identification symbols to aerospace parts using these new DPM methods and techniques. This standard establishes uniform requirements for applying Data Matrix identification symbols to parts used on NASA programs/projects using DPM methods and techniques. Overall program/project requirements related to the use of the Data Matrix symbol include symbol criteria, marking method selection, marking surface preparation, marking location, protective coatings, marking environments, and mark-quality verification standards.
