The 18th Component Maintenance Squadron’s test, measurement and diagnostic equipment troops support more than 10,000 different types of equipment throughout the Indo-Asia-Pacific Region. Equipment such as spectrum analyzers, torque wrenches and pressure gauges are thoroughly fine-tuned to meet TMDE’s four criteria: safety, accuracy, reliability and traceability. Each piece of equipment used to calibrate something has to be four times more accurate that what it is calibrating to ensure traceability. (U.S. Air Force illustration by Senior Airman Omari Bernard)
