Exporters are advised to refer to the relevant guidelines relating to the export of SCOMET items in the Handbook of Procedures (Vol.I), as issued from time to time.

Glossary: Expressions used in the SCOMET List have the following meanings:


“Accuracy” usually measured in terms of inaccuracy, means the maximum deviation, positive or negative, of an indicated value from an accepted standard or true value.

“Active flight control systems” are systems that function to prevent undesirable “aircraft” and missile motions or structural loads by autonomously processing outputs from multiple sensors and then providing necessary preventive commands to effect automatic control.

“Aircraft”: A fixed wing, swivel wing, rotary wing (helicopter), tilt rotor or tilt-wing airborne vehicle.

“Angular position deviation” means the maximum difference between angular position and the actual, very accurately measured angular position after the work piece mount of the table has been turned out of its initial position.

“Composite theoretical performance” (“CTP”) is a measure of computational performance given in millions of theoretical operations per second (Mtops), calculated using the aggregation of computing elements (CE).

“Contouring control” means two or more “numerically controlled” motions operating in accordance with instructions that specify the next required position and the required feed rates to that position. These feed rates are varied in relation to each other so that a desired contour is generated.

“CTP” is equivalent to “composite theoretical performance”.

“Stability” means the standard deviation (1 sigma) of the variation of a particular parameter from its calibrated value measured under stable temperature conditions. This can be expressed as a function of time.

“Specially designed” qualifies the description of equipment, parts, components or “software” which, as a result of “development”, have unique properties that distinguish them for certain predetermined purposes. For example, a piece of equipment that is “specially designed” will only be considered so if it has no other function or use. Thus a piece of manufacturing equipment that is “specially designed” to produce a certain type of component will only be considered such if it is not capable of producing other types of components.

  1. the development, production or use of any goods or software;

  2. the development of, or the carrying out of, an industrial or commercial activity or the provision of a service of any kind.

Explanation: When technology is described wholly or partly by reference to the uses to which it (or the goods to which it relates) may be put, it shall include services which are provided or used, or which are capable of being used, in the development, production or use of such technology or goods.

“Tow” is a bundle of “monofilaments”, usually approximately parallel.

“Toxins” means toxins in the form of deliberately isolated preparations or mixtures, no matter how produced, other than toxins present as contaminants of other materials such as pathological specimens, crops, foodstuffs or seed stocks of “microorganisms”.

“Unmanned Aerial Vehicle” (“UAV”) means any aircraft capable of initiating flight and sustaining controlled flight and navigation without any human presence on board.

“Usable in,” “usable for,” “usable as” or “capable of” qualifies the description of equipment, parts, components, materials, technology or “software” which are suitable for a particular purpose. There is no requirement that the equipment, parts, components, technology or “software” should have been configured, modified or specified for that particular purpose. (Contrast with “specially designed” – see above).

“Use” includes operation; installation (including on site installation); maintenance; repair; overhaul; refurbishing.

“Vaccine” is a medicinal product in a pharmaceutical formulation licensed by, or having marketing or clinical trial authorisation from, the regulatory authorities of either the country of manufacture or of use, which is intended to stimulate a protective immunological response in humans or animals in order to prevent disease in those to whom or to which it is administered.

If the accelerator beam pulse duration is less than or equal to 1 µs, then Q is the total accelerated charge in Coulombs. If the accelerator beam pulse duration is greater than 1 µs, then Q is the maximum accelerated charge in 1 µs. Q equals the integral of i with respect to t, over the lesser of 1 µs or the time duration of the beam pulse ( Q=∫idt ) where i is beam current in amperes and t is the time in seconds.

  2. Peak power = (peak potential in volts) x (peak beam current in amperes).

  3. In machines based on microwave accelerating cavities, the time duration of the beam pulse is the lesser of 1 µs or the duration of the bunched beam packet resulting from one microwave modulator pulse.

  4. In machines based on microwave accelerating cavities, the peak beam current is the average current in the time duration of a bunched beam packet.

Technical Note: In Item 4B008 the detonators of concern all utilize a small electrical conductor (bridge, bridge wire, or foil) that explosively vaporizes when a fast, high-current electrical pulse is passed through it. In nonslapper types, the exploding conductor starts a chemical detonation in a contacting high-explosive material such as PETN (pentaerythritoltetranitrate). In slapper detonators, the explosive vaporization of the electrical conductor drives a flyer or slapper across a gap, and the impact of the slapper on an explosive starts a chemical detonation. The slapper in some designs is driven by magnetic force. The term exploding foil detonator may refer to either an EB or a slapper-type detonator. Also, the word initiator is sometimes used in place of the word detonator.
