Customers can browse our expansive stock by visiting our proprietary website ASAP Aerospace, where items are compiled by their federally-allocated National Stock Number.
To ensure uniformity in the acquisition process, the U.S. Department of Defense created a system that distinctively and permanently identifies the items that it purchases. This system, called the National Stock Number (NSN), is made of 13 digits which are broken down into the 2 ensuing identifying subcategories:
For example, a warning streamer we supply at ASAP Semiconductor has a 13-digit NSN of 8345-00-016-0638. The FSCG is represented by 8345, and the NIIN by 000160638.
Continuing on, the FSCG and NIIN can be broken down even further into the following classifying subcategories:
For the warning streamer, the FSG is represented by 83, and the FSC by 45.
For the above warning streamer, the NCB is represented by 00, designating USA.
