EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The F-14A, F-14B, and F-14D Tomcat Aircraft are long range, multi-shot, all weather, strike-fighter aircraft suitable for carrier or shore-based operations. The F-14 Aircraft mission was expanded to include delivery of conventional air-to-ground ordnance and precision guided munitions. The F-14B is either a remanufactured F-14A or new production aircraft equipped with F110-GE-400 engines. The F-14D is either a remanufactured F-14A or new production aircraft equipped with F110-GE-400 engines, new radar, and new avionics systems. Initial Operational Capability for the F-14D Aircraft was achieved in Fiscal Year (FY) 92. An upgrade program was implemented for the F-14B Aircraft to extend the service life of the airframe and incorporate avionics changes to improve offensive and defensive capabilities. Modifications to the F-14B Upgrade Aircraft will be completed in FY01. The F-14 is in Phase III (Production, Deployment, and Operational Support) of the Weapon System Acquisition Process.

In FY96, all active duty F-14 squadrons, except Fighter Squadron (VF)-154, were relocated to Naval Air Station (NAS) Oceana, Virginia. VF-154 will remain at Naval Air Facility Atsugi, Japan, through FY06. All F-14 squadrons will eventually transition to the F/A-18 Aircraft. A current schedule depicts squadron's transitioning between FY01 and FY09. The Reserve squadron VF-201 transitioned to the F/A-18 Aircraft in first quarter FY99.

The maintenance concept is set forth in the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program, OPNAVINST 4790.2 series, which prescribes the concept of three levels of maintenance: organizational, intermediate, and depot. The F-14D Aircraft achieved its Navy Support Date in September 1996. All systems in the F-14B Upgrade achieved Material and Navy Support Dates by April 1999. Depot level maintenance of F-14B Upgrade systems is commercial support.

Qualitative and quantitative manpower requirements for the F-14 Aircraft are driven by the total preventive and corrective maintenance workload, Required Operational Capabilities (ROC), and Projected Operational Environment (POE) requirements. Activity Manpower Documents (AMD) for F-14 Aircraft squadrons with ten aircraft were developed using the current ROC and POE requirements and a Chief of Naval Operations (N88) letter authorizing squadron manpower for 12 aircraft. This manpower concept allows deployed squadrons to surge to 14 aircraft when needed. An AMD has also been developed for the Fleet Readiness Squadron, VF-101, located at NAS Oceana.

Initial training for all F-14 series Aircraft has been completed. VF-101 and Maintenance Training Unit 1007 Naval Air Maintenance Training Unit Oceana, are conducting follow-on training for the F-14A, F-14B, and F-14D Aircraft, including F-14B Upgrade avionics training.

D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. Operational Uses. The F-14 Tomcat is a long-range, multi-shot, all-weather, strike-fighter aircraft suitable for carrier or shore-based operations. The F-14A, F-14B, and F-14D mission has been expanded to include Precision Strike and Global Positioning System (GPS) functionality. This program increases the F-14 Aircraft's capabilities with target acquisition and weapon delivery of conventional air-to-ground ordnance and laser-guided munitions. Precision Strike capability is provided by a new Forward Looking Infra-Red system known as the AN/AAQ-25 LANTIRN. Additionally, as a result of lessons learned from Operation Desert Storm, all versions of the F-14 have undergone some modification to enhance their survivability in a hostile environment.

The F-14B Aircraft inventory includes new production F-14B Aircraft or remanufactured F-14A Aircraft, both equipped with new F110-GE-400 Engines and other new systems listed in paragraph F. below. Sixty-seven F-14B Aircraft have been modified to extend the service life of the airframes and improve the offensive and defensive posture of the platform. These F-14B Aircraft are referred to as F-14B Upgrade Aircraft. Hereafter, in this NTSP, references to the F-14B will be inclusive of F-14B Upgrade Aircraft, unless specifically stated otherwise.

The F-14D Aircraft inventory includes new production F-14D or remanufactured F-14A Aircraft, both equipped with F110-GE-400 Engines and improved radar and avionics systems, which allow future subsystem growth and increased Aircrew effectiveness through automation and display simplicity. Digital technology eliminates single point failures through redundancy and improved field diagnostic effectiveness.

2. Foreign Military Sales. Iran procured the F-14A. There are no current Foreign Military Sales (FMS) requirements for the F-14 Aircraft. As future FMS requirements become known, information will be included in this NTSP.

E. DEVELOPMENTAL TEST AND OPERATIONAL TEST. The F-14B and F-14D Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) program contained a structured Developmental Test (DT) and Operational Test (OT) schedule developed to meet the highly compressed and concurrent schedule milestones. The principal site for EMD was the Grumman Aircraft Systems Division facility at Calverton, New York, with Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) Patuxent River, Maryland, and Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD) Point Mugu, California, used for carrier suitability, missile firings, and other testing as necessary. Eighty percent of the Navy DT was held at the Grumman Aircraft Systems Division facility, with Navy Aircrews flying 30 to 40 percent of the test flights. DT for the F-14D was held at NAWCAD Patuxent River and NAWCWD Point Mugu. OT was performed by VX-9 at Naval Air Station (NAS) Point Mugu.

  • F-14D Aircraft DT and OT through OT-IID were completed by January 1993. DT and OT-IIIA, B, and C were completed by 30 September 1996.
  • DT for the F-14B Upgrade Aircraft was completed on 5 November 1996. OT of the F-14B Upgrade Aircraft was completed in June 1997.
  • DT and OT for the Precision Strike Program's LANTIRN began in February 1996 with the F-14A, followed by the F-14B, and concluded in October 1997 with the F-14D. LANTIRN DT and OT were conducted at NAWCAD Patuxent River and NAWCWD Point Mugu.

F. AIRCRAFT AND/OR EQUIPMENT/SYSTEM/SUBSYSTEM REPLACED. Sixty "core" F-14A Aircraft have been upgraded with the addition of the AN/ALR-67 Countermeasure Warning System, LANTIRN, and the Programmable Tactical Information Display (PTID). The latest Operational Flight Program (OFP) software is the 116D Tactical Tape.

The F-14B Aircraft includes the F110-GE-400 engine, Fatigue Engine Monitoring System, AN/ALR-67, Gun Gas Purge Door modification, Direct Lift Control/Approach Power Compensator, AN/AWG-15F Fire Control System, and Engine Door Tension Fittings change. The F-14Bs are being modified to an "Upgrade" configuration consisting of the MIL-STD-1553B Digital Multiplex Data Bus (DMDB), CP-2213/AWG-9 Mission Flight Computer, PTID, Programmable Multi-Display Indicator Group (PMDIG), and Mission Data Loader, as well as the AN/AWG-15H replacing the predecessor AN/AWG-15F and the Embedded Global Positioning and Inertial Navigation System (EGI) replacing the AN/ASN-92 Carrier Aircraft Inertial Navigation System (CAINS). Other survivability improvements were developed and are being incorporated under the F-14 Airframe Change 828, Multi-Mission Capability Upgrade. The current F-14B Upgrade OFP 320A incorporates the EGI and new weapon systems functions with revisions planned for the upcoming OFP 320A1.

The F-14D Aircraft has been modified with the inclusion of the AN/ASN-163 Miniaturized Airborne Global Positioning System Receiver (MAGR) and other new systems components to improve reliability. The OFP D03A permitted systems interface with the GPS.

In all F-14 series aircraft, the Automatic Flight Control System is being replaced by the Digital Flight Control System (DFCS). The TARPS Pod System has been replaced with TARPS Digital Imaging. Additionally, the LANTIRN capability, Bol Chaff, and the Fast Tactical Imaging System have been added to the aircraft.

G. DESCRIPTION OF NEW DEVELOPMENT

1. Functional Description. The F-14A Aircraft is the basic platform of the F-14 series. It is equipped with two TF-30-P-414A Engines and the systems listed in the table on pages I-7 and I-8. Additions to the aircraft are now limited by the five-year rule to safety of flight improvements, such as the Engine Breather Pressure Monitoring System recently incorporated and improved.

An Upgrade Program was implemented for the F-14B, which extends the service life of the airframe and improves the offensive and defensive posture of each platform. The F-14B Upgrade Program includes the CP-2213/AWG-9 Flight Mission Computer, PMDIG, PTID, AN/AWG-15H Fire Control System, new chaff dispensers for the AN/ALQ-39, Bol Chaff, EGI, and LANTIRN. In addition to the basic upgrades and EGI configuration change to the F-14B Upgrade, further enhancements are being programmed for the aircraft (refer to paragraph G.5 below).

The F-14D provides controls and displays that increase Aircrew effectiveness through automation and simplicity. Additionally, the F-14D provides changes to the radar, airframe, electronic countermeasures systems, Naval Flight Officer (NFO) armament control panel, Pilot air combat maneuvering panel, and emergency jettison panel, which enhance the offensive and defensive posture of the platform. Future plans for the F-14D Aircraft are outlined in paragraph G.5 of this NTSP.

One MDIG provides Pilot display capability via a combined Vertical Situation Display and a HUD. The other MDIGs provide Pilot and NFO Head-Down Display capability.

v. Programmable Tactical Information Display (F-14A/B/D). The PTID replaces the Tactical Information Display (TID) and provides programmable push-buttons that are used to program switching for the various tactical processors attached to the MIL-STD-1553B DMDB. The PTID provides improved display readability, brightness, and resolution. The F-14A (usually equipped with a TID) requires the PTID when configured for LANTIRN. The F-14B Upgrade is equipped with the PTID. The F-14D Aircraft uses existing Multi-Function Displays or a PTID when configured for LANTIRN.

w. Precision Strike (F-14A/B/D). Precision Strike provides the F-14 the capability to deliver laser-guided bombs for air-to-ground missions. It consists of the LANTIRN pod with laser designator and internal navigation system, LANTIRN control panel, and night vision capable displays. In LANTIRN equipped F-14As and F-14Bs, the TID has been replaced with the PTID.

x. Ejection Seat Systems (F-14A/B/D). The MK-GRU-7A Ejection Seat is employed in the F-14A and F-14B Aircraft as the primary means of escape. The SJU-17(V) Naval Aircrew Common Ejection Seat (NACES) is the primary means of escape from disabled F-14D Aircraft. These seats also provide in-flight restraint and necessary cockpit interfaces for mission performance.

y. Armament Systems (F-14A/B/D). F-14 Armament consists of Air-to-Air Missiles including the Sidewinder, Sparrow, and Phoenix; Air-to-Ground Precision Guided Weapons; Air-to-Ground Conventional Ordnance; and the M61A-1 Vulcan 20mm gun.

The remanufacture of F-14B and F-14D Aircraft was performed by Grumman and Naval Aviation Depot (NADEP) Norfolk, Virginia. Since NADEP Norfolk ceased operation, modifications for the F-14B Upgrade are now accomplished by NADEP Jacksonville, Florida, and Northrop-Grumman, St. Augustine, Florida.

4. Significant Interfaces. Not Applicable (NA)

5. New Features, Configurations, or Material. Planned changes for the F-14 series are JDAM, ALE-47 replacing the ALE-39, TARPS Complete Digital (further pod change), GBU-24E/B Enhanced Paveway III, LANTIRN 40K, and LANTIRN RT.

For the F-14B Aircraft, further enhancements are being programmed. A replacement Vertical Display Indicator Group (VDIG) and Head-Up Display (HUD) Retrofit using F-14D displays for landing and take-off phases of flight will be incorporated. The reliability and supportability costs will be a vast improvement over the existing HUD. Future software updates include OFP 321A, which provides VDIG Retrofit displays, JDAM and other system improvements, and OFP 322, which provides LANTIRN RT, single pass targeting, in-flight training capability, and full GBU-24E/B capability.

For the F-14D, future plans include new OFP versions. The OFP Tape D03B will provide GBU-24E/B power-only mode and Air Control Revision (ACR) capability. The OFP Tape D04 will provide JDAM, Synthetic Aperture Radar Map, full GBU-24E/B capability, and LANTIRN RT capabilities. An AN/AYK-14 XN-8 Version Mission Computer will replace one XN-6 Computer to permit the use of the D04 tape. A new Navigation Guidance Set (NGS) will be replacing the SAHRS.

H. CONCEPTS

1. Operational Concept. One Pilot and one NFO operate the F-14A, F-14B, and F-14D. The NFO performs the duties of Radar Intercept Officer.

2. Maintenance Concept. General direction and guidance regarding the maintenance concept are provided by the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program (NAMP), OPNAVINST 4790.2 series. The NAMP prescribes the concept of three levels of maintenance: organizational, intermediate, and depot; classification of maintenance requirements by functional complexity; assignment to the maintenance level that has the resources to effectively and economically accomplish the maintenance action; and the organizational structure for collection of data to manage the NAMP.

a. Organizational. Organizational maintenance actions are normally performed by an operating unit on a day-to-day basis in support of its own operations. These actions are generally classified as inspections, servicing, handling, and on-equipment corrective maintenance. Personnel from the aviation maintenance ratings perform organizational level maintenance. Navy Enlisted Classifications (NECs) for F-14A, F-14B, and F-14D common systems and TF30-P-414 Engine are 8845 and 8345. For F-14D-specific systems and the F110-GE-400 Engine (installed in the F-14B and F-14D), the organizational maintenance NECs are 8835 and 8335.

(1) Preventive Maintenance. Preventive maintenance consists of periodic prescribed inspections and servicing of equipment accomplished on a phase, sortie, or hours of operation basis.

(2) Corrective Maintenance. Organizational level maintenance personnel use Built-In Test (BIT) for primary fault isolation to a WRA. The faulty WRA is removed and replaced using Peculiar Support Equipment (PSE) or Common Support Equipment (CSE). Some larger WRAs require the use of non-complex PSE and CSE (e.g., engine, canopy, etc.). No repair of the faulty WRA or its Shop Replaceable Assemblies (SRAs) is accomplished at this level.

b. Intermediate. Intermediate maintenance actions are those normally performed in support of a user activity. These actions include repair, test, and modification of aeronautical equipment, calibration of support equipment, and disposition of assets from stricken aircraft. Intermediate maintenance is performed at Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Departments (AIMDs), afloat and ashore, to verify faulty WRAs and fault isolate to an SRA or component using the appropriate test equipment.

New avionics procurements since the year 1991 are maintained at the intermediate level using the AN/USM-636(V) Consolidated Automated Support System (CASS). As older automatic test equipment is phased out, its workload is shifted to CASS or to organic depot or contractor repair facilities. This shift of workload affects all models of the F-14 Aircraft. An exception to CASS is the LANTIRN Targeting Pod, which is maintained at the intermediate level by contractors using the Electro-Optical Test Set and Battlefield Reconfigurable Item for Test of Electro-optics (EOTS/BRITE).

The following table illustrates the intermediate level repair requirements by system.

c. Depot. The Fleet Support Team for F-14 Aircraft depot level maintenance is NADEP Jacksonville. (Selected items and equipment employ contractor depot level maintenance.) The Navy Support Date (NSD) for the F-14B Upgrade was achieved in January 1999 for all systems except the PTID which achieved NSD in April 1999.

d. Interim Maintenance. NA

e. Life Cycle Maintenance Plan. The F-14 Aircraft is periodically inspected and reworked throughout its life cycle through the Standard Depot Level Maintenance (SDLM) program. F-14 Aircraft SDLM is accomplished at NADEP Jacksonville on a 68-month cycle. The Integrated Maintenance Concept is not planned for the F-14 aircraft.

3. Manning Concept. Qualitative and quantitative manpower requirements for the F-14A, F-14B, and F-14D Aircraft are driven by the total preventive and corrective maintenance workload, Required Operational Capabilities (ROC), and Projected Operational Environment (POE) requirements. While individual squadrons will maintain current manning levels for a Primary Aircraft Assigned of 12 aircraft, the Type Commanders are authorized to deploy F-14 squadrons with ten aircraft. The capability to surge deployed F-14 squadrons to 14 aircraft will be maintained.

Activity Manpower Documents (AMD) for each F-14A, F-14B, and F-14D squadron were developed under current F-14 ROC and POE requirements. The F-14B Upgrade does not cause any changes to current manpower requirements.

Naval Air Systems Command (AIR 3.4.1) conducted a manpower and training analysis on LANTIRN requirements. This analysis is documented in the Initial NTSP for F-14 Low-Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared System for Night Targeting System, dated August 1998.

4. Training Concept. Training for the F-14A, F-14B, and F-14D Aircraft and their systems is available for operator, organizational maintenance, and intermediate maintenance personnel. Pilots and NFOs receive training for the appropriate F-14 series aircraft at the Fleet Readiness Squadron (FRS), Fighter Squadron (VF)-101, at NAS Oceana, Virginia. Organizational level maintenance training is provided by Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 1007 Naval Air Maintenance Training Unit (NAMTRAU) Oceana, Virginia (recently re-designated from Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET)). Intermediate level maintenance personnel receive training at MTUs located at various NAMTRAUs and NAMTRAGRU DETs around the country.

Note: In June 2000 NAMTRAGRU DETs Jacksonville, Florida; Lemoore, California; Norfolk, Virginia; North Island, California; Oceana, Virginia; and Whidbey Island, Washington were re-designated NAMTRAUs. The functions and tasks performed by these subject detachments have increased in scope and responsibility to a level normally assigned to CNO established shore activities. Therefore they have been upgraded to NAMTRAUs.

MTU 1007 incorporated F-14B Upgrade systems training into existing organizational level maintenance courses to provide training to Aviation Electronics Technician (AT) personnel on the differences between the F-14B and the F-14B Upgrade Aircraft.

The training concept for Precision Strike LANTIRN currently consists of operator and organizational level maintenance training. Operator training is accomplished through desktop trainers and Computer-Based Training (CBT) during regular Aircrew training at the FRS and at Strike Weapons and Tactics School, Atlantic (SWATSLANT). These desktop trainers are located at the SWATSLANT facility and are also deployed with squadrons for shipboard training. Organizational level maintenance training is conducted by MTU 1007 and is currently taught to squadron personnel as "block" training when needed. It has been incorporated into the avionics courses and is in the approval process. No intermediate level maintenance training or training on the EOTS/BRITE Test Set is required since contractor support personnel will accomplish intermediate level maintenance on the LANTIRN.

a. Initial Training. All initial training for the F-14A, F-14B, and F-14D Aircraft has been completed. When new systems and mission capabilities are introduced, NAWCAD Patuxent River or NAWCWD Point Mugu Project Aircrew personnel conduct initial Aircrew training. Initial cadre training for F-14 squadron maintenance, Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Service Command (NATEC), and NAMTRAU personnel is normally accomplished via contractors, such as Northrop Grumman Corporation Logistics Technology Center. Prior to DT and OT, the contractor conducted initial training for LANTIRN.

Initial training for the F-14B Upgrade for DT and OT personnel, Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET) Instructors, and fleet AT personnel was conducted in May 1996, September 1996, February 1997, and October 1997. As deploying squadrons were provided the F-14B Upgrade Aircraft during this period, the contractor familiarized squadron AT personnel with the newly installed systems.

The new Tactical Imaging System (TIS) has been incorporated in the F-14B Upgrade and F-14D Integrated Weapon System Maintenance Trainer (IWSMT). The TIS is being taught as a block course at NAMTRAU 1007.

b. Follow-on Training

(1) Pilot and NFO Training. Pilots and NFOs receive training for the appropriate F-14 series aircraft at VF-101. Operator training for F-14 TARPS is also conducted at VF-101.

(2) Maintenance Training. Organizational level maintenance courses are centered on a specific rating and Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) by aircraft series. Recent changes to the training concept include consolidating several separate F-14A/B and F-14D courses. This includes courses addressing armament, electrical systems, and environmental systems. In addition, the F-14A/B and F-14D Integrated Weapon Systems training was incorporated into the career avionics training courses for the respective aircraft, thereby eliminating the Weapon System Technician NECs 7970 and 7971. Now, with the exception of the avionics and engine training courses, organizational maintenance training applies to more than one F-14 platform.

Intermediate level maintenance training for common aircraft equipment is provided by MTUs located at various NAMTRAUs. F-14 peculiar equipment intermediate level training is taught at MTU 1007. Personnel assigned to intermediate level maintenance activities in support of F-14 squadrons receive NEC-specific training needed to fill specific billets in a fleet support activity.

Computer Aided Instruction (CAI) is RFT at MTU 1007 NAMTRAU Oceana, using materials received through NAVAIRSYSCOM contracts, and is being augmented as new systems and capabilities are brought into the community. Interactive Courseware (ICW), intended for squadron use, was developed under the same contract but requires further development to meet fleet requirements. CAI software was integrated into all current organizational level maintenance curricula and Ready For Training (RFT) in December 1999. The ICW requires further funding for additional development and is an on-going project.

MTU 1007 provides training to AT personnel in the differences between the F-14B and the F-14B Upgrade Aircraft. F-14B Upgrade systems differences organizational level maintenance was incorporated into the avionics initial and career organizational maintenance courses contained in training tracks D-102-1623 and D-102-1624. In addition, these courses were revised and now include the LANTIRN System.

d. Training Pipelines. No changes are required to existing Pilot and NFO pipelines. Organizational and intermediate level maintenance training tracks and courses listed under follow-on training are available in the OPNAV Aviation Training Management System (OATMS).

I. ON-BOARD (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 in Fiscal Year (FY) 01.

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's 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 ICW with Computer Managed Instruction (CMI) and 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 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. AMTCS implementation will begin with the F-14, E-2C, and all models of F/A-18 aircraft. AMTCS was evaluated by the F-14 community through July 2000, which will begin using AMTCS in FY01. For more information on AMTCS refer to Program Manager, Air (PMA) 205-3D3.

c. Operator Proficiency Training. Fleet Pilot and NFO personnel maintain their proficiency in the F-14 Aircraft through the use of simulators and in-aircraft flights. Aircraft OFTs, MTs, MFTs, and WSTs provide a cost-effective method that allows Aircrews to simulate flight conditions to develop team coordination, practice weapon delivery, and simulate emergency procedures in a safe environment. In-aircraft flights allow Aircrews to apply procedures practiced in the simulator in the actual flight environment. Actual missions are used to practice air combat maneuvers and weapon delivery procedures. An F-14A Training Device (TD), the 2F95 OFT, is located at Naval Air Facility (NAF) Atsugi, Japan, to allow Pilots and NFOs assigned to that remote site to maintain their proficiency in flight procedures, specifically, out-of-control flight and NATOPS checks. In addition, desktop trainers are available from the Commander, Fighter Wing, U.S. Atlantic Fleet, for squadron use.

Note: The F-14B Upgrade modifications, LANTIRN installation, and EGI installations are being accomplished at NADEP Jacksonville and Northrup-Grumman, St. Augustine, Florida.

2. Program Documentation. There are several Integrated Logistic Support Plans (ILSPs) covering the F-14 and its related programs.

    • The ILSP for the F-14A Aircraft and F-14B Aircraft, ILSP P-30A-115 Revision VIII, was last updated and distributed in September 1994.
    • The F-14D ILSP, AC-ILSP-412 is dated June 1994. The F-14B Upgrade ILSP, AC-ILSP-382 Revision A, is dated October 1996.
    • The F-14 Precision Strike ILSP, AC-ILSP-F-14/LANTIRN, dated 30 October 1995, provides Integrated Logistic Support information related to the LANTIRN system.
    • The EGI System ILSP, EGI Logistic Support Plan is dated 26 July 1995.

3. Technical Data Plan. All F-14A technical manuals have been updated to include the F-14B and are available in the fleet. F-14D technical manuals are complete and are in place at user activities. F-14 technical publications are updated through the Technical Publication Deficiency Reporting System. Updates take the form of complete manual rewrites, page changes, or rapid action pen and ink changes. Technical manual upgrade packages for the F-14B Upgrade Aircraft and related systems technical manuals have been distributed and are in an update phase.

4. Test Sets, Tools, and Test Equipment. Existing support equipment and avionics test equipment available in the Navy inventory is used wherever possible. New support equipment and test equipment was procured as a result of an ongoing Logistics Support Analysis. The delivery of support equipment was concurrent with delivery of the first aircraft. Test Program Sets were updated for test equipment mentioned in Section H.2.b. F-14B Upgrade and related systems use existing support equipment. The LANTIRN Targeting Pod will be maintained by contractors using the EOTS/BRITE Test Bench.

5. Repair Parts. As a mature program, F-14 Aircraft parts are in stock and under the control of Naval Inventory Control Point (NAVICP). NAVICP assumed supply support of F-14D unique parts and spares on the Material Support Dates (MSDs), which were achieved sequentially as follows: March 1994, AN/APG-71; November 1994, AN/AYQ-15; and May 1995 for all other contractor furnished equipment. F-14B Upgrade Aircraft systems achieved Material Support Date (MSD) in January 1999 except the PTID, which achieved MSD in April 1999.

6. Human Systems Integration. NA

K. SCHEDULES

1. Installation and Delivery Schedules. Currently, there are 12 active duty Fleet F-14 squadrons. These squadrons will transition to the F/A-18 Aircraft from FY01 through FY09. The table below displays the proposed number of F-14 squadrons by type/model/series aircraft over the next seven years.

Two F-14B Upgrade TDs were in the F-14D to B conversion program combining two older TDs, the 2F112 WST and 2F153 MFT, into one integrated TD renamed the 2F169 WST/MFT. The F-14B Upgrade 2F169 WST was delivered in February 1997 and was RFT in March 2000. The F-14B Upgrade 2F169 MFT was delivered in October 1997 and was conditionally accepted in September 2000.

Two new F-14B Upgrade IWSMTs were delivered to MTU 1007 and several existing TDs were modified to support new F-14 programs and systems. The first new F-14B Upgrade IWSMT was RFT in July 1997 to support F-14B Upgrade training courses. The second F-14B Upgrade IWSMT was RFT in March 1998; it was modified to operate in the F-14A configuration and replaced the old F-14A IWSMT at NAS Oceana. Modifications have been made to two F-14 TDs for Precision Strike LANTIRN. The F-14D IWSMT was RFT in May 1999 and the F-14B Upgrade IWSMT-1 was RFT in June 1999.

As new equipment and systems are installed in the F-14B Upgrade and F-14D, these trainers may require modifications. This information will be included in future updates to this NTSP as it becomes available.
