National Stock Numbers, or NSNs, are 13 digit serial numbers assigned to all components sourced and procured in the federal supply chain. Defense Parts can range from aircraft bearings to fuselage components. The components must adhere to strict military standards (MS) that take into account the hostile conditions in which the components must function in. For example military bearings must be able to withstand the high friction levels of a helicopter rotor drive.
