WEP as the specification was issued by the Bureau of Naval Weapons.

WP may just be another abbreviation for WEP as this specification started in 1966 and may still have been issued by The Bureau of Naval Weapons before it became NAVAIR, see below.
AS may be for The Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) provides material support for aircraft and airborne weapon systems for the United States Navy and was established in 1966 as the successor to the Navy's Bureau of Naval Weapons.
