An adjective, meaning toward the stern, as in "we're taking water in the after boiler room." Sometimes shortened to "aft," as in "the aft boiler room," but nautical purists draw the line at such corruption of the language.
Earlier or later than a point in time. Example: " After the [State of the Union] speech, information was learned about the forged documents. With the advantage of hindsight, it's known now what was not known by the White House prior to the speech." (Ari Fleischer, July 9, 2003.)

So in this example, after technically means "three months earlier."
Definitions cited "After..." (as in "[After 2196]") are the responsibility of the FTSC Subcommittee to Revise FED-STD-1037B , and not the source-cited document, because of rewriting by the Subcommittee.
