2-14. TECHNICAL/RIGGER INSPECTION. A technical/rigger-type inspection is a complete and thorough inspection of
an individual airdrop item, including associated parts and components. The following paragraphs outline criteria
applicable to accomplishing a technical/rigger-type inspection. It will be performed by a qualified parachute rigger in
accordance with AR 750-32.
a. Inspection Intervals.
(1) Upon initial receipt of procured equipment issued to a using unit by a supply source.
(2) Immediately before equipment is packed or rigged for use in airdrop operations.
(3) Before and after repairs or modifications are made.
(4) At any other time as deemed necessary by the airdrop equipment maintenance officer.
b. Inspection Function Requirement. Normally, a technical /rigger-type inspection will be performed at a packing,
rigging, or repair activity. The inspection of initial receipt items will be performed as a separate function from packing or
rigging operations. When the inspection is conducted at a packing or rigging activity, the item to be inspected will be
placed in proper layout on a packing table or suitable sized floor area. Should a defect or damage by discovered at any
point during the inspection, the inspection will be terminated and the applicable item will be processed and forwarded to a
repair activity. The repair activity in turn, will conduct a technical/rigger type inspection that will be performed by only
those parachute rigger personnel cited in AR 750-32. The repair activity inspection of personnel parachutes will be made
on a shadow table. Any defect discovered during an organizational level repair activity inspection which exceeds the
capability of that activity will
