EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This Navy Training System Plan (NTSP) addresses the continuing development and forthcoming introduction of the MARK-105 MOD 4 Magnetic Minesweeping System into the Navy inventory.

The MARK-105 MOD 4 Magnetic Minesweeping System, hereafter referred to as the MK-105 MOD 4, is an upgrade of the MK-105 MOD 2 Magnetic Minesweeping System that is currently used in the Fleet. The system is a remotely controlled, helicopter towed platform used in Airborne Mine Countermeasures. It is designed to provide a reliable and safe method of detonating influence mines. MK-105 MOD 4 System operations can be conducted from aviation-type ships [Amphibious Assault Ship Landing Helicopter Assault (LHA), Amphibious Assault Ship Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD), Mine Countermeasure Support (MCS), Landing Platform Dock (LPD); Amphibious Transport Dock Ship (LSD), and Aircraft Carrier (CV)], ramps, docks, piers, and prepared beaches.

Engineering Change Proposals 105-81 and 105-82 are incorporated when the MOD 2 system goes through Scheduled Depot Level Maintenance, changing its designation from a MK-105 MOD 2 Magnetic Minesweeping System to a MK-105 MOD 4 Magnetic Minesweeping System.

There will be three levels of maintenance for the MK-105 MOD 4, as outlined in the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program, OPNAVINST 4790.2G. Navy personnel from the aviation ratings with Navy Enlisted Classification 8391 will perform organizational and intermediate level maintenance. The manufacturer will perform depot level maintenance. Manpower requirements will remain unchanged by the introduction of the MK-105 MOD 4.

The Performance Support System maintenance and training concept will be incorporated for the MK-105 MOD 4 transition. Airborne Mine Countermeasures squadrons and Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Departments will be equipped with stand-alone computer systems housing both Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETM) and Computer-Based Training (CBT). The IETM will include appropriate technical information and supply support data to complete maintenance actions on the MK-105 MOD 4. The CBT courses integrated within the Performance Support System will provide the training required for the MK-105 MOD 4 weapon system.

D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. Operational Uses. The MK-105 MOD 4 Magnetic Minesweeping System, hereafter referred to as the MK-105 MOD 4, is a remotely controlled, helicopter towed, hydrofoil mounted Airborne Mine Countermeasures (AMCM) System designed to provide a reliable and safe method of detonating magnetic influence mines. System functions are controlled from the helicopter. MK-105 MOD 4 System operations can be conducted from aviation-type ships [Amphibious Assault Ship Landing Helicopter Assault (LHA), Amphibious Assault Ship Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD), Mine Countermeasure Support (MCS), Landing Platform Dock (LPD); Amphibious Transport Dock Ship (LSD), and Aircraft Carrier (CV)], ramps, docks, piers, and prepared beaches.

2. Foreign Military Sales. There are currently no plans for Foreign Military Sales (FMS) of the MK-105 MOD 4.

E. DEVELOPMENTAL TEST AND OPERATIONAL TEST. Developmental Test (DT) and Operational Test (OT) was not required on the MK-105 MOD 4. The MK-105 MOD 4 was the result of two Engineering Change Proposals (ECPs). A Performance and Suitability Evaluation was successfully completed on the prototype by the manufacturer [EDO Corporation World Wide Web: http://www.edocorp.com/)] and Coastal System Station (CSS), Panama City, Florida, in June 1995. A Factory / First Article Test will be completed by EDO Corporation and CSS prior to production go-ahead.

F. AIRCRAFT AND/OR EQUIPMENT/SYSTEM/SUBSYSTEM REPLACED. The MK-105 MOD 4 will replace the MK-105 MOD 2 Magnetic Minesweeping System currently in use.

G. DESCRIPTION OF NEW DEVELOPMENT

1. Functional Description. The MK-105 MOD 4 is an upgrade of the MK-105 MOD 2 Magnetic Minesweeping System. The system is a remotely controlled, helicopter-towed platform used in AMCM. It is designed to provide a reliable and safe method of detonating influence mines. Figure I-1 depicts the MK-105 MOD 4 Seaborne Equipment Platform. The MK-105 MOD 4 functions are controlled from the helicopter. A Turbo Generator mounted on the Seaborne Platform provides the output power required for mission minesweeping. The turbo generator consists of a gas turbine engine, speed reduction gearbox, and alternating current (AC) generator. The AC Generator output is routed to an alternator rectifier subsystem. Electrical current from the alternator-rectifier subsystem flows through a sweep cable array that trails from the hydrofoil platform with seawater completing the electrical circuit. The electrical current produces a magnetic field in the water that detonates magnetic influence mines. To ensure maximum sweep effectiveness and flexibility, the system is designed to produce either a constant or a pulsed current output that is controlled by the Control Programmer located in the helicopter. When an Acoustic Minesweeping device (MK-104) is attached to the magnetic sweep array, the resultant magnetic and acoustic influence field outputs will actuate magnetic and combination magnetic-acoustic influence mines.

3. New Development Introduction. The MK-105 MOD 4 is the result of two modifications to the existing MK 105 MOD 2. ECPs 105-81 and 105-82 are incorporated when the MK-105 MOD 2 goes through Scheduled Depot Level Maintenance (SDLM) changing its designation from the MK-105 MOD 2 Magnetic Minesweeping System to the MK-105 MOD 4 Magnetic Minesweeping System.

4. Significant Interfaces. There will be no significant interfaces with or impacts on other systems, subsystems, or equipment while replacing the MK-105 MOD 2 with the MK-105 MOD 4.

5. New Features, Configurations, or Material. The MK-105 MOD 4 improved features include two additional floats for improved seaworthiness and stability, increased fuel capacity for longer missions, and a larger engine and AC generator to increase the effectiveness of the sweep cable magnetic field against magnetic mines.

H. CONCEPTS

1. Operational Concept. The MK-105 MOD 4 is launched or recovered from various surface ships, (LHA, LPH, LPD, MCS, CV, etc) ramps, docks, and improved beaches utilizing ground and Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RHIB) support personnel. The MK-105 MOD 4 is towed and remotely operated from an AMCM configured MH-53E helicopter manned by two pilots and four crewmembers. Tow of the MK-105 MOD 4 can be transferred between two AMCM configured helicopters to increase time on station. System tow can also be transferred from the helicopter to suitably equipped ships to enhance retrieval flexibility.

2. Maintenance Concept. The maintenance concept for the MK-105 MOD 4 is based on the three levels of maintenance per the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program, OPNAVINST 4790.2G.

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 with Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) code 8391 perform organizational level maintenance.

(1) Preventive Maintenance. Preventive Maintenance includes scheduled maintenance consisting of pre-operational and post-operational inspections, operational readiness testing, and corrosion control. Corrosion control is the major preventive maintenance effort.

(2) Corrective Maintenance. Corrective Maintenance is limited to minor flight line repairs including replacement of faulty consumables, troubleshooting, and removal and installation of Weapons Replaceable Assemblies (WRAs). Faulty WRAs will be sent to the Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Department (AIMD) for repair.

b. Intermediate. AE and AT personnel with NEC 8391 from Work Center 74C maintain the MK-105 MOD 4. Intermediate level corrective maintenance consists of isolating and verifying faulty WRAs and replacing faulty Shop Replaceable Assemblies (SRAs). Isolation and verification of faulty WRAs is performed using the Controller Programmer Test Set, 17-15ALM-156-1 and the Controller Test Set, 17-15ALM-157-1 currently onboard in support of the MK-105 MOD 2 Magnetic Minesweeping System. Defective SRAs will be troubleshot using normal shop practices. SRAs beyond the capability of AIMD will be sent to the Depot for maintenance.

c. Depot. Current planning is for government and designated civilian contractor facilities to perform depot level maintenance. Systems and components will be returned to the depot level under the Return Material for Repair (RMR) program.

d. Interim Maintenance. The contractor will not provide interim maintenance. Currently, fleet maintenance personnel are trained on the MK-105 MOD 2 by Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET). The contractor will provide initial MK-105 MOD 4 training to fleet personnel. Upon completion of this training, existing maintenance personnel will be able to perform all required maintenance on the MK-105 MOD 4.

e. Life-Cycle Maintenance Plan. Regular Overhaul (ROH) for the MK-105 MOD 4 will be provided by a 48-month SDLM cycle conducted at the depot maintenance facility.

3. Manning Concept. The MK-105 MOD 4 will replace the MK-105 MOD 2 Magnetic Minesweeping System; therefore no changes are required to existing billet structures or to available skill levels. Organizational and intermediate level maintenance functions are normally performed by personnel in the Aviation Machinist's Mate (AD), Aviation Electrician's Mate (AE), Aviation Structural Mechanic (Structures and Hydraulics) (AMS/AMH), and Aviation Electronics Technician (AT) ratings. Tactical Ground Support functions are performed by personnel in various ratings.

4. Training Concept. The Performance Support System (PSS) (Figure I-2) maintenance and training concept will be incorporated for the MK-105 MOD 4 transition. AMCM squadrons and AIMDs are equipped with stand-alone computer systems housing both Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETMs) and Computer-Based Training (CBT). Each AMCM squadron is outfitted with four PSS systems, and each AIMD with three. The MK-105 MOD 4 transition software will be installed into these existing systems upon site activation. The IETMs will include appropriate technical information and supply support data to complete maintenance actions. The CBT courses integrated within the PSS will provide the training required for the MK-105 MOD 4. The training program will consist of ten courses. Seven courses pertain to MK-105 MOD 4 organizational level maintenance and three courses pertain to MK-105 MOD 4 intermediate level maintenance. These courses are rating and work center specific. Each course contains CBT lessons targeting specific actions required to operate, launch, and maintain the MK-105 MOD 4.

Instructional material for the organizational and intermediate level CBT is currently under development. Materials include the CBT lessons, instructor guides, and student guides. These materials, in conjunction with a delivered operational MK-105 MOD 4 and required support equipment, will be used to provide fleet training.

Figure I-2. Performance Support System

    1. Initial Training. Current plans call for initial training for both organizational and intermediate level maintenance to be conducted through contractor support. Upon site activation, contractor support personnel will provide six weeks of training utilizing the CBT courses within the PSS and hands-on training utilizing an operational MK-105 MOD 4 and associated support equipment.

d. Training Pipelines. No new training pipelines or tracks are required.

I. ON-BOARD (IN-SERVICE) TRAINING. MK-105 MOD 4 CBT will be incorporated into the PSS at each applicable AMCM squadron and AIMD. Existing MK-105 MOD 2 Personnel Qualification Standards (PQS) and Maintenance Training Improvement Program (MTIP) requirements will be reviewed and modified to reflect the MK-105 MOD 4 system by Commander, Helicopter Tactical Wing, U.S. Atlantic Fleet (COMHELTACWINGLANT), Naval Air Station (NAS) Oceana Air Det Norfolk, Virginia.

1. Proficiency or Other Training Organic to the New Development. Proficiency training for the MK-105 MOD 4 will be provided through managed on-the-job training at each applicable command. On-board training will be consistent with qualitative assessment by MTIP.

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 is the comprehensive testing of one's knowledge. It consists of a bank of test questions managed through automated data processing. The Deputy Chief of Staff for Training assisted in development of MTIP by providing those question banks (software) already developed by the Navy. MTIP was implemented per OPNAVINST 4790.2 series. MTIP allows increased effectiveness in the application of training resources through identification of skills and knowledge deficiencies at the activity, work center, or individual technician level. Refresher training is concentrated where needed to improve identified skill and knowledge shortfalls. (MTIP will be replaced by Aviation Maintenance In-Service Training (AMIST) in FY00.

b. Aviation Maintenance In-Service Training. Aviation Maintenance In-Service Training (AMIST) is intended to support the Fleet training requirements now satisfied by MTIP, and in that sense is the planned replacement. However, it is structured very differently, and will function as an integral part of the new Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System (AMTCS) that will replace the existing aviation maintenance training structure. AMIST will provide standardized instruction to bridge the training gaps between initial and career training. With implementation of AMIST, technicians will be provided the training required to maintain a level of proficiency necessary to effectively perform the required tasks to reflect career progression. AMIST will begin when funding becomes available in FY00.

c. Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System. AMTCS will redesign the aviation training process (training continuum), and introduce CBT throughout the Navy technical training process. The application and adoption of recent advances in computer hardware and software technology will enable CBT, with its basic elements of Computer Managed Instruction, Computer Aided Instruction, and Interactive Courseware, to be integrated into the training continuum and provide essential support for standardizing technical training.

2. Personnel Qualification Standards. Existing MK-105 MOD 2 Personnel Qualification Standards (PQS) requirements will be reviewed and modified to reflect the MK-105 MOD 4 system by COMHELTACWINGLANT.

3. Other On-Board or Inservice Training Packages. None.
