EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This Approved Navy Training System Plan (NTSP) addresses the continuing development and forthcoming introduction of the MK-105 MOD 4 Magnetic Minesweeping System into the Navy inventory. The program is currently in acquisition Phase III (Production, Fielding/ Deployment, and Operational Support).

The MK-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 (AMCM). 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 MK-105 MOD 2 system goes through Scheduled Depot Level Maintenance, changing its designation from the MK-105 MOD 2 Magnetic Minesweeping System to the 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.

Follow-on maintenance and operator training for the MK-105 MOD 2 weapon system currently in the fleet, is taught at Maintenance Training Unit 1031, Naval Air Maintenance Training Unit, Naval Station (NS) Norfolk, Virginia, and the AMCM Weapon Systems Training School, NS Norfolk, Virginia.

D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. Operational Uses. 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 (LPH), 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 of the MK-105 MOD 4.

E. DEVELOPMENTAL TEST AND OPERATIONAL TEST. Developmental Test and Operational Test 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 at: http://www.edocorp.com/)] and Coastal System Station (CSS), Panama City, Florida, in June 1995. The Factory/First Article Test was completed by EDO Corporation and CSS.

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. 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.

2. Physical Description. For the physical dimensions and characteristics of the MK-105 MOD 4 System see Figure I-1, Table I-1, and Table I-2.

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.

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, ramps, docks, and improved beaches utilizing ground and Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat 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 as outlined in the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program, OPNAVINST 4790.2G.

a. Organizational. An operating unit on a day-to-day basis in support of its own operations normally performs organizational maintenance actions. 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.

8391

(1) Preventive Maintenance. Preventive Maintenance includes 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. Aviation Electrician's Mate (AE) and Aviation Electronics Technician (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 Control Programmer Test Set (17-15ALM-156-1) and the Controller Test Set (17-15ALM-157-1), both currently onboard to support 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 level 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 program.

d. Interim Maintenance. The contractor will not provide interim maintenance. 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 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. Due to system similarities and maintenance requirements, no changes are required to existing billet structures or to available skill levels. Organizational level maintenance functions are normally performed by personnel in the Aviation Machinist's Mate (AD), Aviation Structural Mechanic (Structures and Hydraulics) (AMS and AMH), AE, and AT ratings. Personnel in the AE and AT ratings with NEC 8391 normally perform intermediate level maintenance functions. Personnel in various ratings perform tactical Ground Support functions.

4. Training Concept. Formal training is required to support the operational and maintenance aspects of the MK-105 MOD 4. Pilots and aircrew will receive operational training at AMCM Weapon Systems Training School (AWSTS), NS Norfolk, Virginia, as delineated in the MH-53E Navy Training Systems Plan, N88-NTSP-A-50-8417D/D. Actual training flights are conducted at the fleet squadron where the aircrews are assigned. Training for initial organizational and intermediate level maintenance personnel will be accomplished through contractor support. Follow-on maintenance training will be accomplished at MTU 1031, NAMTRAU, NS Norfolk, Virginia.

a. Initial Training. Current plans call for initial training for both organizational and intermediate level maintenance to be conducted through contractor support. Upon activation of each site (Norfolk and Corpus Christi) contractor support personnel will provide six weeks of training consisting of formal instruction 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. ONBOARD (IN-SERVICE) TRAINING. MK-105 MOD 4 CBT will be incorporated into each of the Performance Support Systems (PSS) at each applicable AMCM squadron and AIMD. AMCM squadrons and AIMDs are equipped with stand-alone computer systems housing both Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETMs) and CBT. Each AMCM squadron is outfitted with four PSSs, and each AIMD with three. The MK-105 MOD 4 transition software will be installed into these existing systems upon site activation. Ten additional PSS stations configured with up-to-date software and hardware will be delivered for added support. 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) NS Norfolk. Currently CBT is reviewed and updated biannually through a revision and maintenance contract sponsored by PMS210.

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 with support of the provided CBT. Onboard 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 Training Continuum System (AMTCS). Current planning is for AMTCS to begin initial implementation in third quarter FY00.

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: Computer-Based Training (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 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. Existing MK-105 MOD 2 PQS requirements will be reviewed and modified to reflect the MK-105 MOD 4 system by COMHELTACWINGLANT.

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