EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The SH-60F Seahawk Helicopter is the Navy's carrier inner-zone antisubmarine warfare helicopter. In addition, the SH-60F performs Search and Rescue (SAR), fleet support, medical evacuation, communications relay, logistics, surveillance, and anti-air warfare missions. In FY92, HH-60H helicopters were added to Helicopter Antisubmarine Squadrons (HS) to augment squadron requirements to provide Combat SAR and Special Warfare (SW) Support missions. The SH-60F Helicopter is in Phase III (Production, Deployment, and Operational Support) of the Weapon System Acquisition Process. Additional information on the HH-60H is contained in the HH-60H Combat SAR-SW Support Helicopter Navy Training Plan (NTP), A-50-8714B/A, dated January 1994.

The SH-60F will enter a remanufacture program for conversion to a new series, the SH-60R, in FY07. Modifications will include the installation of a new mission equipment suite, replacement of three-fourths of the airframe, and restoration of various components and the tail section. For additional information, refer to the SH-60R Multi-Mission Helicopter Navy Training System Plan (NTSP), A-50-9403/I, dated May 1999.

The maintenance concept for the SH-60F is in the process of changing to a new aircraft maintenance methodology, the Integrated Maintenance Concept (IMC). IMC is achieved through application of Reliability Centered Maintenance principles that change the focus from restoration maintenance to a prevention maintenance program. This concept will repackage all H-60 Preventive Maintenance (PM) tasks to integrate organizational, intermediate, and depot level maintenance and perform this on-site between deployments. However, organizational activities will continue to perform PM while deployed.

Current HS squadrons normally consist of four SH-60F and two HH-60H Helicopters. Squadron billet requirements have decreased since the last update to this plan in September 1994 due to Navy downsizing. No effects on manpower from IMC have been identified to date, but will be included in future NTSP updates.

All SH-60F initial training has been completed. Follow-on pilot and enlisted aircrew training is single-sited at the SH-60F Fleet Readiness Squadron (FRS), HS-10, Naval Air Station (NAS) North Island, California. (The east coast FRS, HS-1, NAS Jacksonville, Florida, was decommissioned in FY96.) Follow-on maintenance training is provided by Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 1022, Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET) North Island, California, and MTU 1005, NAMTRAGRU DET Jacksonville, Florida. All courses in support of the SH-60F were ready for training in January 1994.

In addition, MTU 1066, NAMTRAGRU DET Mayport, Florida, provides common H-60 and SH-60B-specific maintenance training. However, since SH-60F squadrons are homeported at Jacksonville and North Island, this NTSP focuses on the H-60 and SH-60F organizational maintenance training taught at MTU 1022 and MTU 1005. For additional information on H-60 maintenance training conducted at MTU 1066, refer to the Light Airborne Multipurpose System (LAMPS) MK III (SH-60B) Aircraft Subsystem NTP, A-50-7702D/A, dated November 1994.

D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. Operational Uses. The SH-60F Seahawk is an all weather, day or night, carrier based, inner-zone Antisubmarine Warfare (ASW) helicopter. The primary mission of the SH-60F is to detect, classify, localize, and attack submerged submarines within the inner-zone of the carrier. Secondary missions include Search and Rescue (SAR), fleet support, Medical Evacuation (MEDEVAC), communications relay, logistics, surveillance, and anti-air warfare (chaff deployment).

In addition, Helicopter ASW Squadrons (HSs) deploy with the HH-60H Helicopter to provide combat SAR and Special Warfare (SW) support missions. Additional information on the HH-60H is contained in the HH-60H Combat SAR-SW Support Helicopter Navy Training Plan, A-50-8714B/A, dated January 1994.

2. Foreign Military Sales. Not Applicable (NA)

E. DEVELOPMENTAL TEST AND OPERATIONAL TEST. The Technical Evaluation (TECHEVAL) was conducted at the Naval Air Test Center (NATC) Patuxent River, Maryland (now the Naval Air Warfare Center, Aircraft Division), from July through November 1987. The Operational Evaluation (OPEVAL) was conducted between December 1987 and June 1990. OPEVAL personnel were provided SH-60F training as listed in I.H.4. Training Concept.

F. AIRCRAFT AND/OR EQUIPMENT/SYSTEM/SUBSYSTEM REPLACED. The SH-60F replaced the SH-3H as the carrier inner-zone ASW helicopter.

G. DESCRIPTION OF NEW DEVELOPMENT

1. Functional Description. The SH-60F Helicopter is a derivative of the SH-60B Light Airborne Multi-Purpose System (LAMPS) MK-III Helicopter. It uses the SH-60B airframe and drive train, and replaces mission avionics designed for outer-zone ASW with those designed for inner-zone ASW.

The SH-60F consists of the following: (1) an airframe with appropriate mission fuel, Automatic Flight Control System, hover coupler, and rescue hoist; and (2) an ASW avionics system and an active dipping sonar with sonobuoy processing capability to effect highly mobile inner-zone ASW search, rapid localization, and accurate delivery of hover-launched ASW torpedoes.

The aircraft is a single main rotor configuration with a 20 degree canted tractor tail rotor and automatically controllable stabilator. Four blades are used on both the main and tail rotor. The main rotor blades, using titanium spar with Nomex(R) core and fiberglass outer skins, are fully articulated with elastomeric bearings, while the tail rotor is a semi-rigid crossbeam rotor of composite construction with graphite epoxy spars. An automatic, electrically actuated system is used to fold the main rotor blades. A manual fold system is used to fold the stabilator and tail pylon.

a. Cockpit. The SH-60F cockpit combines the proven effective human factors design of the SH-60B aircraft with the unique equipment and displays required for the inner-zone ASW missions. Instrument displays, controls, consoles, and crash attenuating seats which are designed to accommodate personnel in various size ranges (3rd to 98th). Windshield wiping, washing, defogging, and anti-icing are provided to ensure good visibility. Doors are provided for normal entrance and egress, via both sides of the cockpit.

b. Cabin. A 54-inch high by 44-inch wide sliding door on the starboard side of the aircraft provides access to the cabin. The door opening permits loading and unloading for alternate aircraft usage. A variable speed rescue hoist is located over the doorway. A safety strap for crew protection is provided for rescue or in-flight refueling.

The aft cabin houses the major elements of the mission avionics equipment, sensor operator's station, and sonobuoy launcher system (the sonobuoy carousel sits directly behind the cockpit in the most forward portion of the cabin). A rigid acoustic interior provides soundproofing and thermal insulation. Cabin illumination is provided by the large windows in the cabin door and adjacent to the sensor operator's station, and by lights in the cabin overhead. A 25-inch wide aisle between the avionics modules and sensor operator's station provides maintenance access to all electronic gear in the cabin area and cockpit ingress and egress. Hinged cockpit doors provide for normal crew access to the cockpit. A passenger seat is located against the aft cabin bulkhead.

Cabin and cockpit environments are controlled by an environmental control system that provides both heating and air conditioning. Supplementary or back-up air circulation is provided at all crew stations by manually controlled air inlets for outside air.

Emergency equipment includes two portable fire extinguishers, two first aid kits, and two lights. Emergency escape is accomplished through jettisonable features provided in all cockpit and cabin windows.

c. Fuel System. Fuel service connections, both gravity and pressure refueling, are on the port side of the aircraft aft of the stores stations. The Helicopter In-Flight Refueling Station is located in the cabin on the starboard side behind the doorway. Dual engine waterwash is manifolded to a single-point selector valve connector forward of the port nacelle.

d. Landing System. The landing gear arrangement was selected to optimize the shipboard footprint, equalize the static landing gear loads for deck strength criteria, and provide positive load on the tail wheel. The long stroke of both main and tail wheel oleos is designed to dissipate high sink speed landing energy. Axle and high tie-downs are provided at each main gear, and fuselage attachments are provided above the tail gear for connections to the shipboard tail guide winch system. Tail pylon tie-downs are also provided. The main gear assemblies are completely interchangeable, and provisions are incorporated for checking either oil or air status of all oleos without jacking the aircraft.

2. Physical Description. The physical dimensions of the SH-60F are:

Open Configuration: Folded Configuration:

Overall length 64 feet 10 inches Length 41 feet 1 inches

Fuselage length 50 feet 0 inches Width 10 feet 10 inches

Overall width 14 feet 4 inches Height 13 feet 4 inches

Height 17 feet 2 inches CV Spotting Factor 0.7

Main rotor diameter 53 feet 8 inches

Weight 21,884 pounds

3. New Development Introduction. The SH-60F was introduced in the fleet as a new production aircraft.

4. Significant Interfaces. NA

5. New Features, Configurations, or Material. The SH-60F will enter a remanufacture program to be converted to a new series, the SH-60R, beginning in Fiscal Year (FY) 07. Modifications will include the installation of a new mission equipment suite, replacement of three-fourths of the airframe, and restoration of various components and the tail section. Refer to the SH-60R Multi-Mission Helicopter Initial NTSP, dated January 2000, for additional information. NTSPs can be viewed at http://www.avtechtra.navy.mil.

a. Portable Electronic Display Device. The Portable Electronic Display Device (PEDD) is a hand held flat panel display, Windows©-based computer used to present the Interactive Electronic Technical Manual (IETM) maintenance task information to the user at the work site (the aircraft). A formula of 1.2 PEDDs per aircraft was used and delivered from PMA299 to the Aircraft Wings.

Note: Lap Top computers are suitable substitutes for the PEDD and may have been sent in place of the PEDDs.

H. CONCEPTS

1. Operational Concept. The SH-60F Helicopter is operated by two pilots. Two enlisted aircrew from the Aviation Warfare Systems Operator (AW) rating with the primary Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) 7876, SH-60F Multi-Sensor Operator, provide ASW surveillance within the aircraft carrier's inner defense zone. In addition, aircrew personnel attain the secondary NEC 7815, Helicopter Search and Rescue Swimmer, to provide SAR and MEDEVAC capabilities as required by the cognizant authority.

2. Maintenance Concept. The maintenance concept for the SH-60F is based on three levels of maintenance as stated in the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program Manual, OPNAVINST 4790.2G: organizational, intermediate, and depot. The SH-60F traditional maintenance concept is in the process of changing to a new methodology of aircraft maintenance. This new method is the IMC.

a. Integrated Maintenance Concept. IMC is achieved through the application of Reliability Centered Maintenance principles that change the focus from a restoration maintenance program, i.e., Aircraft Service Period Adjustment (ASPA) and Standard Depot Level Maintenance (SDLM), to a prevention maintenance program. This concept will repackage all H-60 Preventive Maintenance (PM) tasks to integrate organizational, intermediate, and depot level maintenance to be performed on-site between deployments.

Organizational activities will continue to perform PM while deployed. However, the bulk of the inspections and PM tasks will be performed in port by integrated maintenance teams. The IMC team may include a combination of organic and contractor maintenance personnel. IMC will require depot artisans to be permanently assigned to H-60 home sites. Over a specific period of time, they will perform SDLM-like tasks on aircraft, but with more frequency than the current eight to 11 year SDLM cycle.

It has been proposed that IMC be divided into three stages over six years. The areas of PM for each stage are currently being determined. Once decisions on stages and areas are finalized they will be included in future updates to this NTSP.

The criteria for H-60 helicopters entering IMC is that the aircraft must be in good material condition prior to acceptance, then IMC maintains that good material condition. During the transition from ASPA/SDLM/MRC to IMC, it is necessary to perform restoration maintenance on aircraft in poor material condition. To do this, we rely on the current SDLM program and the Service Tour Extension Process (STEP).

Note: SH-60F helicopters are not slated to enter IMC until they are remanufactured as SH-60R, but will enter STEP or complete SDLM prior to being inducted for remanufactured. As the SH-60R remanufacture program matures a requirement for SH-60F to be inducted into the IMC program is a possibility. Any changes will be included in future updates to this NTSP.

The STEP program is an in-service inspection and repair process that is designed to improve the material condition of the aircraft such that the aircraft will not need a SDLM prior to induction into the SH-60R remanufacture program. The STEP requirement is focused on the restoration of the airframe structure, flight controls, fixed provisions, and wiring. It will also include an exterior paint condition assessment. The decision to strip and paint the aircraft will be made once the assessment is completed.

b. Organizational. Organizational level maintenance consists of maintenance actions normally performed by an operating unit in support of its own operations. These actions include inspecting, servicing, handling, fault isolating, removing and replacing Weapon Replaceable Assemblies (WRAs), and performing on-aircraft repairs. Built-In Test (BIT) is used to the maximum extent. Organizational level maintenance is performed by aircraft maintenance ratings with NEC 8378, SH-60F System Organizational Maintenance Technician, and NEC 8878, SH-60F System Organizational Apprentice Maintenance Technician.

(1) Preventive Maintenance. SH-60F preventive maintenance is conducted at specified intervals per established Maintenance Requirement Card procedures. Actions on aircraft include corrosion inspection, periodic washing, phased and special inspections, lubrication and servicing, and daily and turnaround inspections.

(2) Corrective Maintenance. SH-60F corrective maintenance procedures encompass aircraft repair and the replacement of WRAs determined as faulty through use of BIT.

c. Intermediate. Intermediate level maintenance is performed at local Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Departments (AIMD) aboard ships and shore stations designated for SH-60F support. Intermediate level maintenance is conducted per specific instructions contained in Maintenance Instruction Manuals. SH-60F intermediate maintenance actions include repair, test and modification of aeronautical equipment, calibration of support equipment, and disposition of assets from stricken aircraft. AIMD personnel verify faulty WRAs, fault isolate to a Shop Replaceable Assembly (SRA) or component using the appropriate test equipment, replace defective SRAs or components, and repair and overhaul engines and other aircraft components. Existing common support equipment is used to the maximum extent.

d. Depot. Depot level maintenance consists of major overhaul or a complete rebuilding, manufacture, or modification of parts, assemblies, subassemblies, and end items beyond the capabilities of intermediate level maintenance. As a result of the Base Realignment And Closure mandates, component and SDLM depot functions transitioned from Naval Aviation Depot (NAVAVNDEPOT) Pensacola, Florida, to the Corpus Christi Army Depot, Texas, during FY94 and FY95. Fleet Support Team functions transferred to NAVAVNDEPOT Cherry Point, North Carolina, in FY94. The Navy Support Date for the SH-60F was March 1994.

e. Interim Maintenance. The Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Service Command (NATEC) provides on-site Navy Engineering and Technical Services representatives to assist Navy personnel in supporting the SH-60F at Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville and NAS North Island. NATEC also provides support for the SH-60F at NAF Atsugi, Japan.

f. Life-Cycle Maintenance Plan. The current life-cycle maintenance plan based on SDLM intervals will be replaced by the IMC. Aircraft candidates that qualify to be placed in the STEP program will be removed from the SDLM interval and, once remanufactured to a SH-60R, will be inducted into the IMC. SH-60Fs that fail ASPA will require SDLM prior to induction into the SH-60R remanufacture program. Currently, the SDLM cycle is 8 to 11 years.

3. Manning Concept. The total preventive and corrective maintenance, Required Operational Capabilities, and Projected Operational Environment requirements drive qualitative and quantitative manpower requirements for the SH-60F. Manpower requirements are established in Activity Manpower Documents (AMD) for HS-10 (the FRS) and fleet HS squadrons. Current squadron AMDs, which have been updated for four SH-60F and two HH-60H Helicopters, were used to develop Part II of this NTSP. Squadron billet requirements decreased due to Navy downsizing since the last training document update in September 1994.

4. Training Concept. The SH-60F training program objective is to ensure that the proper quantity and quality of personnel are available for operation, maintenance, and support of the SH-60F Helicopter throughout its life cycle. SH-60F aircrews currently train at HS-10, NAS North Island. In FY96, the HS-1 FRS was disestablished for the SH-60F, with pilot and aircrew training single-sited to HS-10 on the west coast. Organizational level maintenance training is conducted at Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 1022, Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET) North Island, California, and MTU 1005, NAMTRAGRU DET Jacksonville, Florida. Intermediate level maintenance training is conducted at various MTUs.

In addition to MTUs 1022 and 1005, MTU 1066, NAMTRAGRU DET Mayport, Florida, provides common H-60 and SH-60B specific maintenance training. However, since SH-60F squadrons are homeported at Jacksonville and North Island, this NTSP focuses on H-60 and SH-60F organizational maintenance training at MTU 1022 and MTU 1005. Currently, NAMTRAGRU HQ is conducting feasibility studies, which are contemplating single-site H-60 training in the Jacksonville area. When a decision on this becomes available, the results will be included in updates to this NTSP and to the SH-60B NTSP: Light Airborne Multipurpose System (LAMPS) MK III (SH-60B) Aircraft Subsystem NTP, A-50-7702D/A.

Due to the upcoming changes in the maintenance concept, NAMTRAGRU will investigate any possible effects that IMC may have on the current training concept. If any effects are identified, recommended courses modifications will be included in NTSP updates.

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.

a. Initial Training. Sikorsky Aircraft provided initial factory training from March 1988 through August 1992. Initial training was conducted at NATC Patuxent River for OPEVAL and TECHEVAL, VX-1, Fleet Introduction Team, NAMTRAGRU DET, NAVAVNDEPOT Pensacola, and NAESU personnel. Cadre SH-60F pilots and aircrew received familiarization training at HS-10, NAS North Island. Cadre organizational level maintenance personnel received general familiarization and specific maintenance training at NAS North Island. Operational Detachment personnel from AIMD North Island received intermediate level maintenance training for several SH-60F systems.

Instructors from HS-10 and NAMTRAGRU DET North Island received SH-60F pilot, aircrew, and maintenance training at NAS North Island. Depot level maintenance personnel at NAVAVNDEPOT Pensacola received training in rework and repair of SH-60F components. Personnel from NAVAVNDEPOT Pensacola attended most of the organizational and intermediate level maintenance courses.

d. Training Pipelines. Organizational and intermediate level maintenance training tracks and courses listed under follow-on training are available in the OPNAV Aviation Training Management System. In the future, SH-60F maintenance courses may be modified to better accommodate IMC. If any changes are deemed necessary, that information will be included in future NTSP updates.

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) program for the west coast HS squadrons has been eliminated as a result of the Inter-deployment Training Cycle. East coast HS squadrons will continue using MTIP for training and to augment AMTCS until AMTCS is fully implemented.

b. 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 CMI, CAI, and ICW, to be integrated into the training continuum and provide essential support for standardizing technical training. The following tables list tasks to be covered for each rating; this training can and will be used at both the NAMTRAGRU DETS and squadrons.
