DECEMBER 2000

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The E-2C Hawkeye Aircraft is an all-weather, carrier based, tactical Airborne Early Warning system and control platform designed to provide early warning, threat analysis, and control of counteraction against air and surface targets. The E-2C Aircraft is in Phase III, Production, Fielding and Deployment, and Operational Support, of the Weapon System Acquisition Process. Engineering Change Proposals (ECPs) will improve overall performance of the primary avionics and other aircraft related systems.

There are three distinct versions of the E-2C Aircraft. Each version was identified by its installed radar configuration up to the AN/APS-145. Omnibus II aircraft referred to as Group "0" has the AN/APS-138 radar installed and Omnibus II, Update Development Program (UDP) referred to as Group I has the AN/APS-139 radar installed. Omnibus II UDP Group II has the AN/APS-145 radar installed. Within the Group II AN/APS-145 class of radar's there will be four different aircraft configurations.

The start of the E-2C "Hawkeye 2000" Aircraft are scheduled for fleet introduction in Fiscal Year (FY) 02. The E-2C "Hawkeye 2000" Aircraft Group II (M) incorporates the Mission Computer Upgrade which will be installed via retrofit. Prior to fleet introduction of the E-2C "Hawkeye 2000," four Group II (M) aircraft were modified for Mission Computer Upgrade Operational Evaluation in FY00. The Hawkeye 2000 Group II (C) aircraft are scheduled for Phase I Flight Operational Test & Evaluation in FY02.

ECPs to the E-2C Aircraft provide increased capabilities in the areas of passive detection, fuel quantity accuracy, Ultra High Frequency, satellite communications, cockpit lighting, advanced radar processing, and navigation. Additionally, installation of the T56-A-427 engine reduces fuel consumption, increases range, improves single engine climb characteristics, and prolongs on-station time. No changes in manpower resulted from incorporation of ECPs.

All aircrew training is being provided by the Fleet Readiness Squadron, VAW 120, Naval Air Station (NAS) Norfolk, Virginia, and Naval Strike Warfare Center, NAS Fallon, Nevada. Organizational and limited Intermediate maintenance training continues to be provided by Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 1025, Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET) Point Mugu, California, and MTU 1026, Naval Air Maintenance Training Unit (NAMTRAU) Norfolk, Virginia. Training support data is being provided by Program Manager, Air (PMA) 205 to VAW 120 and MTUs 1025 and 1026 to update courses with applicable Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) information.

Length: 51 feet

Height: 18 FEET

Weight: Empty, 37,678 pounds; maximum takeoff, 54,900 pounds

Power Plant: Two Allison T56-A-427 turboprop engines

3. New Development Introduction. Introduction of new developments will be accomplished by ECPs through production and retrofit.

4. Significant Interfaces. The following changes/upgrades have significant interfaces or impacts:

a. Mission Computer Upgrade and Advanced Control Indicator Set. A new switch panel will be added for the Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) switches which currently reside in the Auxiliary Control Unit. The MCU will provide increased throughput and data precision compared to the existing mission computer system.

b. Cooperative Engagement Capability. The major contractor furnished components are the CEC Controls, Cooling System modifications, Common Equipment Set interface and intraface cabling and application software for the integration of the CEC into the E-2C. CEC controls and data display functions will be incorporated as part of the E-2C/CEC integration.

c. Vapor Cycle Upgrade. The enhanced Vapor Cycle System will have a nominal cooling capacity of 14 tons and will be capable of supplying 155 pounds per minute of 62° F cooling air at the system design point. This translates to an estimated 15 ton installed aircraft capacity.

d. Satellite Communications Forward Equipment Compartment. The Contractor Furnished Equipment (CFE) to be provided will integrate the ARC-210 Very High Frequency (VHF)/Ultra High Frequency (UHF) into the aircraft includes the Receiver- Transmitter (RT)-1794 (C) Transceiver (shock mounted), AM-75261/ARC High Performance Antenna (HPA), MT-7006/ARC HPA Mount, Radio Frequency (RF) Preamplifier, C-12561/ARC Remote Control Panel (RCP), and modified Smart Mount.

e. NP-2000. Upgrades the current 4 bladed propeller to 8 blades, which is a digitally controlled all composite, flange-mounted single-piece steel hub.

5. New Features, Configurations, or Material.

a. Mission Computer Upgrade and Advanced Control Indicator Set. The MCU consists of an improved Mission Computer, a Data Loader Recorder, an Advanced Control Indicator Set, and the tactical software for use in the MCU. The Data Loader Recorder will consist of one receptacle and one transportable cartridge. The MCU replaces the existing mission computer, OL-424/ASQ, the Enhanced High Speed Processor, CP-1469A/A, tactical software, interfaces, the digital data-recorder reproducer, RD-576/ASQ, the EMDU, IP-1625/APQ-179, Auxiliary Display Unit, IP-1039/APA-172, Upper MDU, PP-8286/APQ-179, Auxiliary Control Unit, 123SCAV5167-101, and Main Power Supply, PP-6524/APA-172.

b. Cooperative Engagement Capability. The CEC is a segment of the Ship Self Defense System and provides, in real time, to all members of the network (ideally all members of the battle group) a combined sensor picture of an operational area. This informational picture is common to all members and provides an improved situational awareness, improved resource management for sensors and weapons, and a more complete tracking picture. This is accomplished by coordinated sharing of a common data set collected from individual member resources in a network. The E-2C is the CEC designated airborne platform to increase the surveillance area for greater situational awareness, to provide early warning of distant targets, and to increase the separation and coverage of the surface battle group while maintaining the network within Line Of Sight (LOS). The E-2C will benefit from the tracking capabilities and accuracy of multiple radar's and sensors on various participating platforms. For the airborne application, the CEC consists of two Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) components, the Cooperative Engagement Processor, and the Data Distribution System. This set of GFE is referred to as the Common Equipment Set.

c. Satellite Communications Forward Equipment Compartment. The Satellite Communications (SATCOM) System includes a GFE supplied ARC-210 VHF/UHF Transceiver consisting of RT-1794C Transceiver (shock mounted), AM-75261/ARC HPA, MT-7006/ARC HPA Mount, RF Preamplifier, C-12561/ARC Remote Control Panel (RCP), and modified Smart Mount. The ARC-210 provides the E-2C Aircraft with SATCOM Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) and non-TDMA Wide-Band Secure Voice (WBSV), Narrow-Band Secure Voice, Officer-in-Tactical Command Information Exchange Subsystem-II and Tactical Display Indicator (TDI) capability (with WBSV limited to non-TDMA). Additionally, the GFE supplied Multi-mission Advanced Tactical Terminal (MATT) and mount provide the E-2C Aircraft with SATCOM TDI Exchange System-B, Tactical Related Applications and Tactical Information Broadcast System capability.

d. Vapor Cycle Upgrade. The enhanced Vapor Cycle System will have a nominal cooling capacity of 14 tons and will be capable of supplying 155 pounds per minute of 62° F cooling air at the system design point. This translates to an estimated 15 ton installed aircraft capacity at the extreme ambient temperature conditions permitted for the Class I avionics in the FEC.

A capability for cooling a maximum avionics heat load of 37,400 watts exists at the extreme hot day design condition. In addition to the increase in capacity of the vapor cycle system, the working fluid will be changed from R-114 to R-134a. R-134a is the best possible solution to recent EPA regulation, which phased out production of R-114 in 1996 due to ozone depletion concerns. R-134a is widely used in many commercial applications as is R-114, the current refrigerant. Functionally, there are no differences between 12 Ton and an enhanced vapor cycle units, both have an evaporator assembly and a condenser assembly for air cooling and heat rejection, respectively.

e. NP-2000 propeller. The NP-2000 design is derived from the Hamilton Sundstrand 54460-1 propeller currently used with the T56-A-425 and -427 engines on the E-2C airplanes. These aircraft operate from land and sea bases worldwide. A replacement propeller is required due to the expiring assets of the current propeller design, which is no longer in production and the blade supply is expected to reach critical level in late 2001. Approximately 50 blades are available in the inventory, and the tooling for the 54460-1 blade no longer exists, therefore , a replacement blade must be procured.

H. CONCEPTS

1. Operational Concept. The E-2C is operated by a crew of five consisting of a pilot, co-pilot, and three Naval Flight Officers (NFOs). The NFOs are the Combat Information Officer, Air Control Officer, and Radar Officer. Through the use of specialized electronic equipment, it's feasible for operators to search, identify and track targets, and control intercepts.

2. Maintenance Concept. All E-2C maintenance will conform to the three levels of maintenance as outlined in the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program (NAMP), Office of the Chief of Naval Operations Instruction (OPNAVINST) 4790.2 series: Organizational, Intermediate, and Depot.

a. Organizational

(1) Preventive Maintenance. Preventive maintenance includes scheduled, special, and phase inspections including corrosion inspections and preservation of all equipment per Naval Air (NAVAIR) technical manuals.

(2) Corrective Maintenance. Corrective maintenance consists of repairs to power plants, airframes, aircraft wiring and connectors, system fault isolation to a defective WRA, replacement of the WRA, and verification of the repair using BIT, in-flight performance monitoring, or appropriate test sets and common support equipment. Defective WRAs are forwarded to the Intermediate Maintenance Activity (IMA) for repair.

b. Intermediate

(1) Preventive Maintenance. Preventive maintenance for WRAs and Shop Replaceable Assemblies (SRA) consists of corrosion inspections and preservation of all equipment per NAVAIR 16-1-540, Technical Manual for Avionics Cleaning and Corrosion Prevention and Control, and NAVAIR 01-1A-509 for Non-Avionics Equipment.

(2) Corrective Maintenance. Corrective maintenance is performed on engines, airframe components, WRAs, SRAs, sub-SRAs, chassis mounted components, and wiring harnesses beyond the organizational level's capability to repair. These actions include test, test and check, repair, and calibration using common and peculiar support equipment. WRAs are fault isolated to defective SRAs or components using the appropriate test equipment. The faulty SRA or component is repaired or replaced; then WRA performance is verified using the appropriate test equipment. WRAs and SRAs beyond the capability of the IMA are forwarded to a depot repair facility for repair or disposition.

c. Depot. Depot level maintenance consists of repair, rework, or refurbishing of the aircraft or its systems, WRAs, and SRAs beyond the repair capability of the IMA. The Fleet Support Team (FST) for the E-2C is Naval Aviation Depot (NAVAVNDEPOT) North Island, California. The FST for both the T56-A-425 and T56-A-427 engine is NAVAVNDEPOT Jacksonville, Florida. Rolls Royce Engine Repair Operation, Indianapolis, Indiana, is currently repairing the T56-A-427 engine. Rolls Royce, Oakland, California, has the repair responsibilities of the T56-A-425 engine.

d. Interim Maintenance. Northrop-Grumman provided interim support until Material Support Dates (MSDs) were achieved.

Northrop-Grumman provided Contractor Engineering Technical Services through MSD, including engineering liaison and logistics support (sustaining). Naval Air Technical Data Engineering Services Command (NATEC) provides Navy Civilian Technical Specialist and Navy Military Technical Specialist support after MSD is attained.

e. Life-Cycle Maintenance Plan. An E-2C Integrated Maintenance Concept has been developed that replaces the Standard Depot Level Maintenance Program. Under this concept, E-2C Aircraft will receive required maintenance on a 40 month cycle.

3. Manning Concept. Manpower requirements for E-2C pilots and NFOs are based on the crew seat ratio factor found in the Required Operational Capabilities (ROC) and Projected Operational Environment (POE) documents. Enlisted manpower is based on total preventative and corrective maintenance requirements. Current E-2C manpower authorizations for the Fleet Replacement Squadron (FRS), Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron (VAW) 120, Naval Air Station (NAS) Norfolk, Virginia, and fleet squadrons are contained in the appropriate Activity Manpower Documents (AMDs).

Due to the new training concept of initial and career training at the organizational level of maintenance, the Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) structure has been modified to indicate skill levels and aircraft configuration. NECs for common E-2, C-2 and E-2C (non-Group II) maintenance are designated 8805, E-2 and C-2 Organizational Apprentice Maintenance Technician, and 8305, E-2 and C-2 Systems Organizational Maintenance Technician. NECs for E-2C Group II Aircraft maintenance are designated 8806, E-2C Group II Systems Organizational Apprentice Maintenance Technician, and 8306, E-2C Group II Systems Organizational Maintenance Technician. New NECs to identify Hawkeye 2000 Aircraft qualified maintenance personnel have been requested.

4. Training Concept. The E-2C Training Program consists of initial and follow-on training for operators and maintenance personnel. Additionally, Advanced Mission Commander training is provided for Pilots/NFO's. Initial training for the T-56-A-427 was provided by Allison Gas Turbine at Naval Aviation Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET) Miramar, California. All other initial except Advanced Mission Commander training was provided by Grumman Aerospace Corporation (GAC) at Bethpage, New York, or at Navy sites. Follow-on aircrew training is provided by VAW 120 NAS Norfolk, Virginia, and organizational maintenance training is provided by Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 1025, Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET) PT Mugu, California, and MTU 1026 Naval Air Maintenance Training Unit (NAMTRAU) Norfolk, Virginia. Intermediate level maintenance personnel are provided training at MTUs located at various NAMTRAU's around the country. E-2C Advanced Mission Commander training is provided by the Naval Strike Warfare Center, NAS Fallon, Nevada.

Future Hawkeye 2000 initial training will be provided by designated contractor at the contractors facilities or Navy sites. Hawkeye 2000 follow-on training will be accomplished by modifying existing aircrew and maintenance courses and developing new courses as appropriate. This information will be included in future updates to this NTSP.

Selected Reserve personnel may earn intermediate level maintenance qualifications by attending formal training at NAMTRAU's or NAMTRAGRU DETs, providing quotas, funding, and students are available to attend the training. Specific guidelines are contained in Naval Personnel (NAVPERS) 18068F Volume II, Chapter IV, Navy Enlisted Classifications.

The established training concept for most aviation maintenance training divides "A" School courses into two or more segments called Core and Strand. Many organizational level "C" School courses are also divided into separate Initial and Career training courses. "A" School Core courses include general knowledge and skills training for the particular rating, while "A" School Strand courses focus on the more specialized training requirements for that rating and a specific aircraft or equipment, based on the student's fleet activity destination. Strand training immediately follows Core training and is part of the "A" School.

d. Training Pipelines. The Catalog of Navy Training Courses (CANTRAC) numbers and course lengths in the above follow-on training are accurate according to the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations (OPNAV) Training Management System as of 26 May, 2000. New maintenance NECs have been identified to support the Hawkeye 2000 Aircraft and are awaiting OPNAV approval. They will be included in future updates to this NTSP.

I. ONBOARD (IN-SERVICE) TRAINING.

1. Proficiency or Other Training Organic to the New Development

a. Maintenance Training Improvement Program. The Maintenance Training Improvement Program (MTIP) is used to establish an effective and efficient training system responsive to fleet training requirements. MTIP is a training management tool that, through diagnostic testing, identifies individual training deficiencies at the organizational and intermediate levels of maintenance. MTIP will be replaced by the Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System (AMTCS). Current planning is for AMTCS to begin full implementation for fleet deployment on March 2001.

b. Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System. AMTCS will provide career path training to the Sailor or Marine from their initial service entry to the end of their military career. AMTCS is planned to be an integrated system that will satisfy the training and administrative requirements of both the individual and the organization. The benefits will be manifested in the increased effectiveness of the technicians and the increased efficiencies of the management of the training business process. By capitalizing on technological advances and integrating systems and processes where appropriate, the right amount of training can be provided at the right time, thus meeting the CNO mandated "just-in-time" training approach.

Technology investments enable the development of several state-of-the-art training and administrative tools: CBT for the technicians in the Fleet in the form of Interactive Courseware (ICW) with Computer Managed Instruction (CMI) and Computer Aided Instruction (CAI) for the schoolhouse.

Included in the AMTCS development effort is the Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System - Software Module (ASM) which provides testing [Test and Evaluation (TEV)], recording [Electronic Training Jacket (ETJ)], and a Feedback system. The core functionality of these AMTCS tools are based and designed around the actual maintenance-related tasks the technicians perform, and the tasks are stored and maintained in a Master Task List (MTL) data bank. These tools are procured and fielded with appropriate Commercial off-the-Shelf (COTS) hardware and software, i.e., Fleet Training Devices (FTD) - Laptops, PCs, Electronic Classrooms (ECR), Learning Resource Centers (LRC), operating software, and network software and hardware.

Upon receipt of direction from OPNAV (N789H), AMTCS is to be implemented and the new tools integrated into the daily training environment of all participating aviation activities and supporting elements. AMTCS will serve as the standard training system for aviation maintenance training within the Navy and Marine Corps, and is planned to supersede the existing MTIP and Maintenance Training Management and Evaluation Program (MATMEP) programs.

2. Personnel Qualification Standards. Personnel Qualification Standards (PQS) have not been developed, and there are no plans to develop PQS for the E-2C.

3. Other Onboard or In-Service Training Packages. None required.
