EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The SJU-17(V) Navy Aircrew Common Ejection Seat (NACES) is a Martin-Baker Mk-14 high technology escape system installed on F/A-18C/D Aircraft, procured from Fiscal Year (FY) 89 (and beyond) and are in production deliveries of the T-45A/C, F-14D, and F/A-18E/F. NACES is in Phase III (Production, Deployment, and Operational Support) of the Weapon System Acquisition Process.

Marine Corps Aircraft Safety Equipment Mechanics with Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) 6087 and Navy Aviation Structural Mechanics (Safety Equipment) (AME) with Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) codes 8341, 8841, 8342, 8842, 8345, 8335, and 8845 maintain the NACES at the organizational level. Navy Aircrew Survival Equipmentmen and Marine Corps Flight Equipment personnel with MOS 6060 maintain the NACES at the intermediate level. The NACES does not require manpower changes at the organizational, intermediate, or depot levels of maintenance.

Martin-Baker provided all levels of initial maintenance training for NACES. Initial training for organizational level maintenance was conducted for Operational Evaluation personnel, Navy instructor cadres, Naval Aviation Depot personnel, as well as industrial personnel involved in the NACES program. Initial training for intermediate level maintenance personnel was conducted in June 1993. Depot level initial training for maintenance personnel was conducted in April 1994.

Follow-on training for aircrew personnel is provided through the appropriate-specific Fleet Readiness Squadron (FRS) and the Naval Aviation Survival Training Program at several Aviation Survival Training Centers. Organizational level maintenance follow-on training is provided by Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 1007 Naval Air Maintenance Training Unit (NAMTRAU), Oceana, Virginia, for the F-14; and MTU 1038 NAMTRAU Lemoore, California, and MTU 1039 NAMTRAU Oceana, Virginia, for the F/A-18C/D and for the F/A-18E/F.

D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. Operational Uses. The SJU-17(V) NACES is the primary seating platform for aircrew in the F-14D, F/A-18C/D/E/F, T-45A/C, and subsequent models of each aircraft. In addition, the NACES provides the aircrew member with a means of emergency egress, in-flight restraint, and necessary cockpit interfaces, such as electrical and oxygen connections.

2. Foreign Military Sales. Foreign countries may procure the NACES by virtue of the aircraft that are equipped with them. Finland, Malaysia, Switzerland, Kuwait, and Thailand have procured F/A-18 Aircraft equipped with the NACES. Information concerning Foreign Military Sales (FMS) of the NACES may be obtained from the NACES Program Manager, Air (PMA) 202.

E. DEVELOPMENTAL TEST AND OPERATIONAL TEST. Engineering Proofing Article One testing was conducted at Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD), Patuxent River, Maryland, in September 1985, on seats fitting the F/A-18A/B, F/A-18C/D, and F-14D aircraft. Sled testing was conducted at the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD) China Lake, California, in first quarter Fiscal Year (FY) 86, and third and fourth quarters FY87. In-flight testing was conducted from May through July 1987 at NAWCWD China Lake. (Ultimately, the F/A-18A and F/A-18B Aircraft were not selected for NACES installation.)

The Developmental Test (DT)-1 for the NACES escape system and subsystem began in September 1985 and was completed in first quarter FY89 at NAWCWD China Lake. DT-2A began in August 1985 and was completed in September 1990 at Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indian Head Division (NSWC, IHDIV), Maryland, and NAWCAD Warminster, Pennsylvania. DT-2B was conducted from December 1987 through June 1990 at NAWCWD China Lake.

Operational Evaluation (OPEVAL) logistics and maintenance evaluations began in May 1986 for the F/A-18 seat. The Operational Tests (OT)-2B and OT-2C for the F-14D, F/A-18, and T-45 aircraft began in second quarter FY89 and were completed in second quarter FY90 at NAWCWD China Lake.

For the F/A-18 Aircraft, OT-2A was conducted in second and third quarter FY90 by Naval Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX)-5, NAWCWD China Lake. For the F-14D Aircraft, OT-2A was conducted in third and fourth quarter FY90 by VX-4 at NAWCWD Point Mugu, California. For the T-45 Aircraft, OT-2A was conducted third quarter FY91 through first quarter FY92 by Air Training Wing (AIRTRAWING) Two, Naval Air station (NAS) Kingsville, Texas.

F. AIRCRAFT AND/OR EQUIPMENT/SYSTEM/SUBSYSTEM REPLACED. The NACES has been installed in the F/A-18C/D Aircraft procured after FY88 and in all production deliveries of T-45A/C, F-14D, and F/A-18E/F aircraft. Due to safety and logistics considerations, all aircraft assigned to a specific squadron will be equipped with the NACES; i.e., there will be no mix of different seats within a squadron. However, the F/A-18 Aircraft Fleet Readiness Squadrons (FRS), Fighter-Attack Squadron (VFA)-106 and VFA-125, have a mix of seats that may include the SJU-5/A, SJU-6/A, and the NACES models SJU-17(V)1/A, SJU-17(V)2/A, and SJU-17(V)9/A. The NACES is available in several models to accommodate various aircraft:

G. DESCRIPTION OF NEW DEVELOPMENT

1. Functional Description. The NACES is a Martin-Baker Mk-14 Ejection Seat that provides the primary means of aircrew seating. The NACES also provides the means of escape from a disabled aircraft via ejection; in-flight restraint by means of a shoulder harness and lap belts; cockpit interfaces for electrical connection of the seat height adjustment and canopy jettison features; and hook-ups for the oxygen supply system.

The NACES has been designed for commonality, modularity, growth capability, and phased technology insertion to simplify logistics and lower life-cycle costs. A modular construction technique has been employed, which provides excellent component accessibility and permits upgrading of subsystems without changes to the rest of the seat structure.

The NACES is fully automatic, cartridge operated, and rocket assisted. The primary means of control is by electronic sequencer giving variation to ejection events, depending on the aircraft's altitude and speed. The NACES is equipped with an environmentally sealed parachute with a six-year repack cycle.

Each NACES, as installed in the aircraft, comprises five main assemblies described in the following paragraphs:

a. Catapult Assembly. The Catapult Assembly secures the ejection seat to the aircraft structure and provides initial power for ejection of the seat. The catapult consists of an outer barrel and an inner telescopic piston. The barrel is attached to the aircraft structure and the piston and barrel are engaged at the top end by the top latch plunger installed in the Main Beams Assembly.

b. Main Beams Assembly. The Main Beams Assembly is manufactured almost entirely from light alloy and comprises two parallel main beams bridged by top and bottom cross beams. The Main Beams Assembly incorporates several major components and also provides for attachment of the seat bucket assembly and the parachute container. The following major components are incorporated as part of the Main Beams Assembly.

(1) Top Latch Assembly. The Top Latch Assembly, fitted to the left-hand main beam, secures the seat structure to the catapult, and consists of a housing containing a spring-loaded latch plunger, one end of which is shaped to engage the catapult piston.

(2) Drogue and Bridle Assembly. The Drogue and Bridle Assembly is fitted to decelerate and stabilize the ejection seat prior to deployment of the personnel parachute.

(3) Drogue Deployment Catapult. The Drogue Deployment Catapult function is to deploy the stabilization Drogue and Bridle Assembly without becoming entangled with the seat. The electronic sequencer controls the firing of the Drogue Deployment Catapult to ensure the seat is clear of the aircraft before the drogue is deployed.

(4) Parachute Deployment Rocket Motor. The Parachute Deployment Rocket Motor extracts the personnel parachute from the parachute container and enables it to deploy and develop rapidly without becoming entangled in the seat.

(5) Electronic Sequencer. The Electronic Sequencer measures altitude and airspeed at the moment of ejection, identifies the correct recovery sequence, and provides the necessary output signals to enable recovery sequence implementation. The Electronic Sequencer controls drogue deployment and release, personnel parachute deployment, and man-seat separation. Timing varies with altitude and airspeed. An external test receptacle is provided for periodic testing of the Electronic Sequencer.

(6) Thermal Batteries. Two Thermal Batteries supply power to the electronic sequencer. The batteries provide system redundancy; each battery is initiated independently.

(7) Pitot Assemblies. Two Pitot Assemblies incorporating deployable heads are mounted on the main beams behind the parachute container. The pitot heads are maintained in the stowed position by locking mechanisms, which are released during seat ejection. When deployed, the pitot head assemblies supply dynamic pressure inputs to the electronic sequencer.

(8) Multi-Purpose Initiators. Two Initiators, Multi-Purpose (IMP) are attached to the lower outer face of the seat main beams. During the ejection sequence, the IMPs supply gas pressure to operate the barostatic release unit delay mechanism, the underseat rocket motor, the pitot deployment mechanisms, and the internally mounted start switch assemblies.

(9) Barostatic Release Unit. The Barostatic Release Unit (BRU) is located on the right-hand main beam of the seat. The BRU contains an impulse cartridge that is normally initiated by the sequencer to supply gas pressure to release the upper and lower harness locks, and fire the secondary cartridge in the parachute deployment rocket motor. In the event of sequencer failure, the BRU cartridge will be fired by mechanical operation of the BRU.

(10) Shoulder Harness Reel. The Shoulder Harness Reel provides aircrew restraint when connected to the aircrew torso harness. During the ejection sequence it ensures the occupant will be brought to, and locked in the correct posture for ejection.

c. Seat Bucket Assembly. The Seat Bucket Assembly provides seating for the aircrew. Because of aircraft installation requirements, SJU-17(V)1/A, 2/A, and 9/A seat buckets are one-inch wider than SJU-17(V)3/A through 6/A assemblies. The Seat Bucket Assembly includes the following systems and components:

(1) Underseat Rocket Motor. The Underseat Rocket Motors supplement the upward thrust of the catapult to provide sufficient altitude and velocity for safe parachute descent for the aircrewman. The Mk 123 Mod 0 is used for the forward seat of the F/A-18D, T-45A/C, and the F-14D. The Mk 124 Mod 0 is used in the aft seat of the F/A-18D, T-45A/C, F-14D, and in the F/A-18C. The difference between the two motors is the location of the lateral thrust motor, which provides divergence between the forward and aft seats during ejection.

(2) Leg Restraint System. The Leg Restraint System is fitted to the ejection seat to restrain the occupant's legs close to the seat bucket during ejection, thus preventing leg injuries due to flailing.

(3) Ejection Control Handle. The Ejection Control Handle is located on the front of the seat bucket and is connected by link and cross bar to the twin sears of the seat initiator located under the seat bucket. An upward pull of the Ejection Control Handle withdraws the two sears of the seat initiator to simultaneously fire the two seat initiator cartridges, thus initiating the ejection sequence.

(4) Safe-Armed Handle. The Safe-Armed Handle is located on the right hand-side of the seat bucket. Contained within the handle is a catch that locks the handle in either the "Armed" or "Safe" position. The handle is connected to a linkage terminating in a safety plunger, which passes through the link of the ejection control handle when the handle is in the safe position and prevents operation of the ejection control handle.

(5) Emergency Restraint Release System. The Emergency Restraint Release System is a dual mode system, which provides release of the lower harness restraint to permit emergency ground egress and resumption of the ejection sequence in the event of any failure or failures of the automatic systems.

(6) Seat Height Actuator. The Seat Height Actuator provides vertical adjustment of the seat bucket in relation to the seat beams, enabling occupants to assume the correct sitting height.

d. Parachute Assembly. The Parachute Assembly is comprised of a 21-foot (6.5-meter) diameter GQ Type 5000 personnel parachute packed into a rigid parachute container-headrest and connected to the parachute risers. The parachute risers incorporate Seawater Activated Release Switches (SEAWARS). These switches will automatically release the occupant from his parachute following descent into seawater. The parachute container-headrest is attached to the upper forward face of the ejection seat main beams.

e. Seat Survival Kit. The Seat Survival Kit fits into the seat bucket and consists of a contoured rigid platform that has an emergency oxygen system and a fabric survival package attached. A cushion on top of the platform provides a firm and comfortable seat for the occupant.

2. Physical Description

Height 56.60 inches overall

Width 20.75 inches

Weight 228 pounds

Seat-back angle

Normal flight 18 degrees

Ejection 22 degrees

Maximum thrust 4,800 pounds for 0.25 seconds

3. New Development Introduction. The NACES is provided to aircraft manufacturers as Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) for installation during production. It is installed in Lot XIII and subsequent procured F/A-18C/D Aircraft and all production deliveries of the T-45A/C and F-14D aircraft. The NACES is being installed on the F/A-18E/F Aircraft during production. No retrofits are planned.

4. Significant Interfaces. The NACES interfaces with the aircraft's electrical, oxygen, and canopy jettison systems.

5. New Features, Configurations, or Material. The NACES implements the Pre-Planned Product Improvement (P3I) Program that allows evolution of a weapon system's capability, utility, and operational readiness in an orderly and cost-effective manner. Through the P3I philosophy, the NACES can be upgraded or customized to a specific mission requirement by providing growth potential and system flexibility. This is especially effective during the development phase of a new weapon system.

Phase I of the NACES P3I Program will incorporate all the seat modifications required to provide for increased accommodation and ensure that ejection injury risk for the newly established anthropometric cases is equal to or less than the current injury risk for the extreme aircrew size-mass specified in the original NACES contract. The NACES P3I goal is to increase accommodation to all of the seven Joint Primary Aircraft Training System (JPATS) body size cases. Test and evaluation of P3I Phase I will be held at NAWCAD Patuxent River. Dates are TBD.

Phase I Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) MB9230 was approved on June 19, 1999. The change will effect two major components of the ejection seat on T-45A/C and F/A-18C/D/E/F aircraft:

    • The seat bucket modification includes shortening the side skins, adding a new back plate, and modifying and installing the seat height actuator.
    • The catapult modification includes installing a new breech, installing a ring in the secondary cartridge breech to accommodate a new cartridge, and pressure testing the modified catapult.

Phase I ECP modifications are being incorporated in new production and Fleet retrofit for NACES-equipped F/A-18 and T-45 aircraft, with an estimated completion date of FY04. Fleet retrofit, implemented through modification kits and depot bucket reworks, began in February 2000. Naval Aviation Depot (NAVAVNDEPOT) North Island, California, is performing the NACES modification on a rotable pool schedule, beginning with Trainer and East Coast stationed aircraft, at an estimated rate of 20 per month.

Note: NACES-equipped F-14D Aircraft are not scheduled for P3I upgrade at this time.

H. CONCEPTS

1. Operational Concept. The operational concept for the NACES is the same as existing ejection seats. The NACES provides the required aircrew seating for mission performance and a means of escape in an emergency situation. The NACES is initiated by the upward pull of the ejection control handle located on the front center of the seat bucket. Separation of the seat from the crewmember and deployment of the parachute are fully automatic after ejection is initiated.

2. Maintenance Concept. The maintenance concept for the NACES follows the general direction and guidance provided by the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program, Office of the Chief of Naval Operations Instruction (OPNAVINST) 4790.2 series, and the Naval Weapons Maintenance Program, OPNAVINST 8600.2B, for the Cartridges, Cartridge Actuated Devices (CAD), and Aircrew Escape Propulsion Systems (AEPS). Martin-Baker warrants the NACES for a period of five years against failure of materials or failure due to workmanship. Failed items are exchanged under supervision of the Commander, Naval Air Forces, Atlantic (COMNAVAIRLANT) and the Commander, Naval Air Forces, Pacific (COMNAVAIRPAC), as appropriate. The failed unit is returned to Martin-Baker for replacement in kind, warranty adjustment at contractor expense, or repair under the Repair of Repairables contract at Navy expense, as appropriate.

The T-45A/C NACES is maintained by McDonnell Douglas. Failed items are directly exchanged with Martin-Baker.

a. Organizational. Organizational level maintenance is performed at the squadron level by Aviation Structural Mechanic (Safety Equipment) (AME) personnel for F-14D and F/A-18C/D/E/F aircraft, and Marine Corps personnel with Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) 6087, Aircraft Safety Equipment Mechanic, F/A-18C/D Aircraft. Personnel from Work Center 13B (Egress and Environmental Systems Shop) maintain the NACES with assistance as needed from Work Center 220 (Electrical Shop) and Work Center 13A (Aircrew Survival Equipment Shop).

(1) Preventive Maintenance. Preventive maintenance is conducted at specified intervals per established procedures in Maintenance Requirement Cards (MRC). Preventive maintenance actions include removal and replacement of system components at scheduled intervals, corrosion inspections, special inspections, lubrication, and daily inspections.

(2) Corrective Maintenance. Corrective maintenance consists of system testing, and removing and replacing system components when failures are identified. Fault isolation and failure detection is conducted to the Weapon Replaceable Assembly (WRA) level.

b. Intermediate. Navy maintenance personnel in the Aircrew Survival Equipmentman (PR) rating and Marine Corps Flight Equipment personnel with MOS 6060 perform intermediate level maintenance on the main parachute and the survival kit. NACES Intermediate Maintenance Activities (IMA) have been established by COMNAVAIRLANT and COMNAVAIRPAC for maintaining the NACES six-year environmentally sealed parachute and the survival kit. IMAs for the West Coast are:

    • NAWCWD China Lake, California
    • Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Department (AIMD), NAS Lemoore, California
    • Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron (MALS)-11, Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Miramar, California
    • MALS-12, MCAS Iwakuni, Japan *

IMAs for the East Coast are:

    • AIMD, NAS Oceana, Virginia
    • AIMD, NAS Sigonella, Sicily *
    • MALS-31, MCAS Beaufort, South Carolina

* IMAs not equipped with a parachute packing press utilize other Navy and Marine Corps IMAs who have a parachute packing press for repack.

c. Depot. Depot level maintenance consists of fault isolation and failure detection of WRAs to the piece part using peculiar support equipment and common support equipment. The component is repaired, then verified as Ready For Issue, and returned to the supply system. NAVAVNDEPOT Cherry Point, North Carolina, serves as the In-Service Fleet Support Team. NAVAVNDEPOT North Island has been selected as the NACES component repair activity. NSWC, INDIV is responsible for all cartridges, CADs, and AEPS devices that are reworkable. The Navy Support Date (NSD) for the NACES was October 1994.

d. Interim Maintenance. Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Service Command (NATEC) representatives are providing post-NSD follow-on support.

e. Life-Cycle Maintenance Plan. Not Applicable (NA)

3. Manning Concept. The NACES did not require additional manning at the organizational, intermediate, or depot levels of maintenance. No changes were required to the existing billet structure or available skill levels.

The T-45A/C Aircraft is under full contractor maintenance support. The Navy Logistics Maintenance Monitoring Team at each AIRTRAWING received specialized T-45A/C related NACES training at Douglas Aircraft Company.

Instructor billet requirements at Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 1038 Naval Air Maintenance Training Unit (NAMTRAU) Lemoore, California, and MTU 1039 NAMTRAU Oceana were initiated with the original NACES NTP A-50-8517.

4. Training Concept. The appropriate aircraft FRS and the respective Aviation Survival Training Center (ASTC) provide operator training for the NACES. The appropriate NAMTRAU provides follow-on training for organizational level Navy AME and Marine Corps MOS 6087 personnel as follows:

F-14D Aircraft MTU 1007 NAMTRAU Oceana

F/A-18 Aircraft MTU 1038 NAMTRAU Lemoore

MTU 1039 NAMTRAU Oceana

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. Upon completion of Core and Strand "A" Schools, graduates going to organizational level activities attend the appropriate Initial "C" School for additional specific training. Initial "C" School training is intended for students in paygrades E-4 and below. Career "C" School training is provided to organizational level personnel, E-5 and above, to enhance skills and knowledge within their field. "A" School graduates going to intermediate level activities attend the appropriate intermediate level "C" School. Intermediate level "C" Schools are not separated into Initial and Career courses. Marine Corps graduates of Core and Strand "A" school attend the appropriate Career "C" School for additional training on a specific type of aircraft or equipment, and to enhance skills and knowledge within their field. Graduates from "C" School receive their primary MOS.

Contractors conduct follow-on training for T-45A/C organizational level maintenance personnel.

Organizational and intermediate level maintenance training for Japanese National contract personnel at Atsugi, Japan, is coordinated through the Commander Fleet Air Western Pacific liaison office located at NAS Atsugi, Japan.

The respective NAMTRAU or NAMTRAGRU DET provided all transition training for organizational level maintenance personnel assigned to a squadron employing NACES-equipped aircraft. Transition training also included intermediate level maintenance training, fleet aircrew training, instructor training, and NAVAVNDEPOT personnel training. A certificate was awarded upon the successful completion of NACES training.

(1) Aircrew. ASTC Pensacola, Florida, personnel were responsible for ensuring all ASTC personnel received training on the NACES seat operation. ASTC instructors who did not attend the NACES initial training received training from those instructors who attended initial training. Aircrew personnel assigned to squadrons consisting of NACES-equipped aircraft received training on the NACES seat operation from the appropriate ASTC.

(2) Maintenance. NAMTRAGRU DETs or NAMTRAUs provided NACES organizational level maintenance training to fleet personnel assigned to a squadron that received NACES-equipped aircraft. In addition, MTUs 1038 and 1039 provided intermediate level maintenance training to those PR personnel who supported NACES-equipped aircraft.

(3) Industrial Personnel. Organizational and intermediate level maintenance training for designated NAVAVNDEPOT personnel were provided by the respective NAMTRAGRU DETs. Intermediate level maintenance training was provided by MTU 1038 NAMTRAU Lemoore and MTU 1039 NAMTRAU Oceana. This training was coordinated through the Naval Aviation Maintenance Training Group Headquarters and the quota control for training by the respective detachments. This allowed NAVAVNDEPOT personnel to obtain the training required.

c. Follow-on Training. The respective NAMTRAGRU DETs or NAMTRAUs conduct organizational level maintenance training for the F-14D and F/A-18C/D/E/F aircraft. Contractors perform T-45A/C organizational level maintenance, and are responsible for follow-on maintenance training of the T-45A/C Aircraft.

(1) Operator Training. Aircrew members receive training through the Naval Aviation Survival Training Program (NASTP) and the appropriate FRS.

(a) Naval Aviation Survival Training Program. ASTCs conduct several aviation physiology training courses to meet the various needs of the fleet through the NASTP. Each physiology training course provides some aspect of Aviation Life Support System (ALSS) training as needed. This includes the proper ways of wearing, adjusting, and using the numerous garments, helmets, and masks; use of emergency and rescue equipment such as survival vests, radios, rafts, and parachutes; and procedures for employing an ejection seat. Refer to the NASTP NTSP (N88-NTSP-A-50-9803/D) for information on specific NACES training provided by the ASTCs.

(b) Fleet Readiness Squadrons. The FRSs provide aircraft-specific training, including seat envelope training and when-to-eject training.

I. ONBOARD (IN-SERVICE) TRAINING

1. Proficiency or Other Training Organic to the New Development. The training tracks are in place to provide the knowledge needed to accomplish the tasks associated with NACES. Sharpening of these skills and keeping up to date with the latest advancements can be accomplished in the field with the use of available programs. The 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 to meet 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. For more information on AMTCS refer to PMA205-3D3.

2. Personnel Qualification Standards. NA

3. Other Onboard or In-Service Training Packages. Marine Corps onboard training is based on the current series of MCO P4790.12, Individual Training Standards System and MATMEP. This program is designed to meet Marine Corps, as well as Navy OPNAVINST 4790.2 series, maintenance training requirements. It is a performance-based, standardized, level-progressive, documentable, training management and evaluation program. It identifies and prioritizes task inventories by MOS through a front-end analysis process that identifies task, skill, and knowledge requirements of each MOS. MTIP questions coupled to MATMEP tasks will help identify training deficiencies that can be enhanced with refresher training. (MATMEP is planned to be replaced by AMTCS.)
