EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Air-to-Ground Missile (AGM)-84H Standoff Land Attack Missile Expanded Response (SLAM ER) is a carrier-based, non-nuclear, tactical weapon designed to perform day, night, or marginal weather surgical strikes. SLAM ER is designed with sufficient standoff range to ensure high survivability of launch aircraft in attacks against surface targets. To support rapid deployment and maintain low development costs, selected components from Harpoon, Maverick, and Tomahawk Missiles were integrated into SLAM ER. This integration of existing weapon system components minimized SLAM ER design changes and allowed for easier interface with existing Standoff Land Attack Missile (SLAM) aircraft Fire Control Systems in U.S. Navy F/A-18 aircraft.

AGM-84H SLAM ER program is currently in Phase III (Production, Development, and Operational Support phase) of the acquisition process. The SLAM ER program has developed modification kits that are being installed as a retrofit on all baseline SLAM missiles in the inventory.

The planned SLAM ER inventory is replacing an equal number of SLAM missiles in the operational, maintenance, and training environments. Projections of SLAM ER requirements show that current SLAM manning levels are adequate to support the SLAM ER system, and no additional manpower requirements are identified.

The SLAM ER maintenance concept is based on an overall objective to assure All-Up-Rounds are available to fulfill commitments of operational activities and provide the means to restore unserviceable missiles to serviceable condition with minimal downtime. Maintenance requirements are allocated to the organizational, intermediate, and depot levels of maintenance as defined in the Naval Ordnance Maintenance Management Program, OPNAVINST 8000.16 (series).

The SLAM ER training concept is divided into organizational and intermediate level maintenance based on OPNAVINST 8000.16 (series). Operator training is provided to aviators at the appropriate Fleet Readiness Squadron. Platform weapons school organizational level training is provided to maintenance personnel at the appropriate Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) and Fleet Replacement Enlisted Skills Training activity. Intermediate level maintenance personnel are trained at the appropriate MTU.

D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. Operational Uses. Launched from an F/A-18 Aircraft, the AGM-84H SLAM ER satisfies the Standoff Area Defense mission between long-range cruise missiles and short-range freefall munitions in the land attack scenario against fixed, high value above ground targets and ships located in hostile areas of the world. SLAM ER provides the Navy with a standoff weapon capability for aircraft to attack targets in day, night, and less-than-ideal weather conditions with improved performance over the current AGM-84E Standoff Land Attack Missile (SLAM).

2. Foreign Military Sales. Not Applicable (NA)

E. DEVELOPMENTAL TEST AND OPERATIONAL TEST. Development Test (DT) was initiated in January 1997, and was successfully completed in March 1998. In December 1996, factory training was provided to Aviation Ordnanceman (AO) from Aircraft Test and Evaluation Squadron Nine-Detachment (VX-9), Point Mugu, California, in support of a Maintainability Demonstration. This factory training consisted of F/A-18 Up and Downloading and Fleet Handling, and was provided by Boeing (formerly McDonnell Douglas Aerospace).

A combined DT and Operational Test (OT) phase was successfully completed in June 1998. In February 1998, factory training was provided to VX-9 Test and Evaluation Squadron Pilots by the Boeing Company Aerospace Training Division, in support of the combined DT/OT. This factory training consisted of Aircrew Procedures and Tactical Automated Mission Planning System (TAMPS) Mission Planning Module (MPM).

OT began in August 1998 and was completed in May 1999. A validation of corrected deficiencies found during OT was initiated in first quarter FY00 and was completed in second quarter FY00. Factory training was provided to VX-9 in support of Operational Evaluation (OPEVAL). Factory training consisted of Fleet Handling, F/A-18 Up and Downloading, Theory of Operations, Aircrew Procedures, and TAMPS MPM.

F. AIRCRAFT AND/OR EQUIPMENT/SYSTEM/SUBSYSTEM REPLACED. By the year 2010, the SLAM ER will have completely replaced the SLAM missile system through retrofit.

G. DESCRIPTION OF NEW DEVELOPMENT

1. Functional Description. The AGM-84H SLAM ER is a carrier-based, non-nuclear, tactical standoff weapon system designed to perform day, night, and all weather surgical strikes. Using preplanned mission profiles, the missile flies autonomously to the target area using Global Positioning System (GPS) aided inertial navigation. Near the target, the Imaging Infrared (IIR) seeker and Weapon Data Link (WDL) are activated allowing aimpoint refinement via Man-In-The-Loop (MITL) control of the IIR Seeker from the launch aircraft or a cooperative aircraft with the AN/AWW-13 data link pod.

a. Guidance Section. The Guidance Section consists of the following functional subsystems:

(1) Imaging Infrared Seeker. The production AGM-65F Maverick IIR Seeker is used with minor modifications. The seeker includes its own processor and tracking algorithm software for autonomous tracking of the designated target aimpoint. During flight, the seeker video is transmitted to the control aircraft where the operator views the image, recognizes the target, and selects a specific target aimpoint on the Multi-purpose Display Indicator. The seeker power supply is a modular Alternating Current (AC) Direct Current (DC) converter which receives the SLAM ER missile avionics 28 volts DC bus power, and output ± 33 volts DC (nominal) conditioned power required for operation of the IIR seeker. The seeker power supply also accepts on and off commands.

(2) The Guidance Navigation Unit. The Guidance Navigation Unit (GNU) is a single chassis containing Mission Computer, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), GPS receiver, Air Data System (ADS) electronics, Input and Output electronics, video annotation electronics, and a power conditioning unit. This unit functionally replaces the Mid-course Guidance Unit (MGU) on SLAM. The GNU contains an easily reprogrammable memory and a processor that is significantly faster than the SLAM GPS Receiver Processor Unit and MGU. Ability to reprogram the flight computer without disassembly of the All-Up-Round (AUR) reduces the cost of incorporating future software upgrades. The faster-executing processor can accommodate the additional tasks to be performed by the mission computer. The GNU includes a multi-channel GPS receiver instead of the single-channel set in SLAM. A multi-channel receiver provides the benefits of a quicker navigation solution by acquiring satellites in parallel versus serially. This simplifies prelaunch initialization of the weapon and the associated mission planning. Continuous parallel track of the satellites also increases system tolerance to the vehicle dynamics associated with bank-to-turn maneuvers in the presence of countermeasures. The IMU element also provides enhanced performance compared to the Attitude Reference Assembly equipped SLAM by providing accurate navigation and seeker pointing at extended GPS-jamming ranges. The GNU also performs video annotation and digital and/or analog input and output.

The air data system computer is a part of the GNU and is analogous to existing pitot static systems. The information provided replaces estimated values used in navigation. This reduces missile turn radius and allows continued navigation when the GPS is jammed. The air data probe is approximately two inches long.

(3) Data Link Receiver. The Advanced Weapon Data Link (AWDL) provides a radio frequency link between the missile and the control aircraft. The missile's seeker video is transmitted via the data link to the aircraft where the operator views the target image. The operator in turn transmits commands to the missile via the AWDL. The SLAM WDL electronics package is modified by replacing one Frequency Modulation (FM) video transmitter Printed Wiring Board (PWB) with a two-phase modulation video transmitter PWB, and adding one Electronically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory board to the command receiver. The AWDL also incorporates a two-way video system and operates with eight channels. A new AWDL antenna made of high temperature steel is added and located on the back of the control section of the missile. Although the antenna is a new production item, its design is based on a prototype antenna used during a SLAM ship launch demonstration program conducted during December 1996. The AWDL also incorporates a power converter allowing the data link to be powered directly from the missile avionics bus power. The AWDL increases data link control range and improves resistance to jamming.

(4) Power Converter. An AC to DC power converter is provided to utilize available aircraft power for SLAM ER prelaunch operations requiring DC power. The power converter is attached to the guidance body shell, and heat generated within the unit is conducted to the missile's skin for dissipation. The power supply is disconnected automatically on battery activation.

b. Warhead. The warhead assembly in the warhead section is based on the Tomahawk Block III warhead technology and will improve penetration performance against reinforced concrete land targets. The warhead assembly, the fuze (FMU-155/B), the fuze booster (BBU-60/B), the air pressure probe (FZU-56/B), and the electrical harness are all contained in the warhead section. During Engineering and Manufacturing Development (E&MD) flight testing, an exercise section (a stainless steel case containing a modified SLAM telemetry configuration with a redundant flight termination system) replaced the warhead section. The case was also redesigned to allow attachment of the SLAM ER wings.

c. Sustainer. The sustainer section is a modified SLAM sustainer consisting of a Teledyne CAE J402-CA-400 turbojet engine, cast aluminum flush inlet, a sealed fuel tank with JP-10 fuel, a silver-zinc battery, a modified wire harness, new shorting (flight) plug, a modified bolt-on launch lug, and the new wing slot covers.

d. Control. The control section contains four electro-mechanical actuators that provide fin movement for flight path control. This is the same subsystem that is used in SLAM except the SLAM blade antenna, rear facing reflector, and Radio Frequency (RF) cable were removed for SLAM ER. An additional high temperature RF connector was installed to interface with the added AWDL antenna.

The SLAM ER incorporates new planar wings along with newly designed larger control fins to provide extended range, increased maneuverability, and higher operating envelope. The planar wings are a modified Tomahawk design. The wings are structurally attached to the warhead or exercise section, and the Wing Attach Fitting and Wing Deployment Unit is covered with segmented Wing Fairings. The planar wings unfold at launch.

2. Physical Description. The AGM-84H SLAM ER is a derivative of the SLAM missile. The SLAM ER uses sections from the Maverick, Harpoon, and Tomahawk Missile Systems as described below. The SLAM ER is approximately the same length, but heavier than its predecessor, and can be subdivided into four major sections. The following are its dimensions and weight:

Length 172 0 inches

Diameter 13.5 inches

Wing span 85.9 inches

Weight 1478 pounds

3. New Development Introduction. The SLAM ER is being introduced as a retrofit to the SLAM system.

4. Significant Interfaces. The SLAM ER weapon is designed to interface with the existing wiring in the F/A-18 aircraft. Electrical and data interfaces with the AN/AWW-13 data link pods are required to provide MITL terminal guidance control. Stop Motion Aimpoint Update (SMAU) has been incorporated which allows the operator to select the desired aimpoint on a single-frame fixed image, vice a moving image.

5. New Features, Configurations, or Material

a. Improvements. The SLAM ER is an improved variant of the SLAM weapon system. The SLAM ER program has designed and developed a modification that is being installed as a retrofit on all SLAMs in inventory. The improvements include:

    • A planar wing, providing increased temperature, altitude, and range capabilities
    • A new nose fairing, providing improved protection against rain erosion
    • An improved warhead and fuze, providing increased penetration
    • A phased-modulated video transmitter and improved antenna, providing increased range for aircraft survivability and improved anti-jam capability
    • A GNU, providing improved anti-jam capability, improved flight control, elimination of the need for an initialization maneuver, and reduced costs

b. Shipping and Storage Container. The final Insensitive Munitions Sympathetic Detonation test for the CNU-595/E double wall extruded aluminum container was completed on 17 July 1997. Containers have undergone an Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) to incorporate some minor modifications.

c. SLAM ER Mission Planning Module for Tactical Automated Mission Planning System. The SLAM ER MPM for the TAMPS was developed by Boeing. By utilizing the TAMPS, SLAM ER mission planning is completely computer-based. The planner does not use separate Joint Operations Graphic charts, etc. Everything the planner needs is on the TAMPS computer, including charts, Digital Terrain Elevation Data, and GPS capability. This greatly reduces the amount of time needed for SLAM ER mission planning. With the SLAM ER MPM on TAMPS, planning time is less than 30 minutes, including mission validation.

Automatic Target Acquisition (ATA) target selection occurs in the SLAM ER Automatic Target Acquisition Mission Planning Module (ATA MPM) for TAMPS. The operator has the capability to define the image selection criteria, query the Joint Service Imaging Process System-Joint Tactical Automated Mission Planning System Interface Module (JTIM) for available imagery, and select the appropriate image. Target selection is performed prior to mission validation added an additional 5-10 minutes to the SLAM ER Mission Planning timeline. The SLAM ER ATA allows the operator to plan the entire mission on the TAMPS computer, including target selection.

d. Memory Unit. The TAMPS is located in the Aircraft Carrier Intelligence Center (CVIC) and is used to transfer mission planning data to the F/A-18 Memory Units (MU) via 1760 interface. Aircraft software is used for purging mission data from the missile. The MU is used to transfer data to the aircraft by inserting the MU into a receptacle in the cockpit, where mission data is read and transferred to the missile on the wing station.

e. Aircrew Interactive Multimedia Instruction

(1) SLAM Interactive Multimedia Instruction. The SLAM Interactive Multimedia Instruction (IMI) was completed on August 2, 1996 and was distributed to fleet activities. The major tutorial modules of the SLAM IMI are SLAM Weapons System Tutorial, SLAM Mission Planning Tutorial, and SLAM Employment Tutorial. The primary users of the SLAM IMI system are the instructors at Strike Fighter Weapons School (SFWS), Atlantic, and SFWSP, Pacific. The distribution of these systems to the individual F/A-18 Squadrons is left to the discretion of the SFWS. SFWS instructors have the capability to extract a standardized lecture for initial and refresher SLAM courses. SLAM and SLAM ER IMI was developed to comply with the Naval Strike Air Warfare Center (NSAWC) style guide and is hosted on the Strike Fighter Training System (SFTS).

(2) Revision 1. Revision 1 was completed in November 1997.

(3) Revision 2. Revision 2 was completed in September 1998.

(4) SLAM ER. The SLAM ER IMI was placed on contract in October 1997 to Logistics Services International. The SLAM ER Aircrew IMI meeting was held on October 21, 1997. The SLAM ER IMI technical meeting was held on November 13, 1997 at Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division Point Mugu. The SLAM ER IMI delivery was made in first quarter FY00. IMI version 1.5 was released in third quarter FY00.

f. Training Devices. Baseline SLAM training devices were modified into the SLAM ER configuration. The Dummy Air Training Missile (DATM) and Captive Air Training Missile (CATM) will be converted to the SLAM ER configuration in a phased approach proportionate to the tactical conversions in order to support and train SLAM ER capable squadrons. For this conversion effort, SLAM CATMs will be drawn from the rotating pools managed by the Commander In Chief, United States Atlantic Fleet (CINCLANFLT), and Commander In Chief, United States Pacific Fleet (CINCPACFLT).

(1) Exercise Training Missile. Exercise Training Missiles (ATM-84H) are identical to the tactical missiles with the exception that the warhead section is replaced with an exercise section, which provides telemetry data of training or test flights. The exercise section also receives and executes flight termination command signals, and it is used for missile identification and tracking. ATMs will be allocated to Type Commanders (TYCOMs) by CINCLANFLT and CINCPACFLT Ordnance Plans and Policy each fiscal year by the Non-Combat Expenditure Allocation (NCEA) process.

(2) Captive Air Training Missile. CATMS simulate the SLAM ER tactical missile for full mission rehearsal training. The SLAM ER CATM is an altered configuration of the production missile and is suitable for use by training elements in both shore and shipboard environments. The SLAM ER CATM is used to train the launch aircrew and the control aircrew for MITL terminal guidance. The SLAM ER CATM can be carried on all SLAM ER platforms. SLAM ER CATMs will be deployed at schoolhouses with the remainder divided into two rotating pools and placed under the cognizance of the Training Agents, CINCLANTFLT and CINCPACFLT, who will be responsible for specific CATM deployment within their area of responsibility. The appropriate CINC will fill forward deployed unit requirements.

During Low-Rate Initial Production (LRIP) 1, 13 SLAM CATMs were recalled from the fleet and retrofitted to the SLAM ER configuration. The following SLAM ER CATMs were redistributed to the fleet: four in December 1998, two in April, four in May, and three in June 1999. These 13 CATMs, with the addition of the two CATMs from the Test Vehicle conversion, provide sufficient assets (15) to support aircrew training during the early years of production. The remaining 20 SLAM CATMs are being retrofitted during Full Rate Production.

(3) Dummy Air Training Missile. The DATM is an inert shape that replicates the external appearance, form, fit, weight, and center of gravity of the AUR. The SLAM ER DATM interfaces mechanically with SLAM ER capable aircraft. DATMs are used in the classroom and Fleet training exercises to train and qualify load crews in uploading, downloading, and handling the missile. Breakout, assembly, strike up/strike down, upload/ download, stowage, and organizational level maintenance for the SLAM ER DATM are identical to the procedures for a tactical missile. The SLAM ER DATM is not flight worthy, and can not be used in captive carriage flight.

Seven SLAM DATMs were retrofitted to the SLAM ER configuration. One SLAM ER DATM was delivered to support OPEVAL. The other six SLAM ER DATMs were delivered in third quarter FY99 to the requiring activities in advance of Initial Operational Capability (IOC).

(4) Practical Explosive Ordnance Disposal System Trainer. The Practical Explosive Ordnance Disposal System Trainer (PEST) simulates all explosive components. PEST is an inert training shape that replicates the external appearance and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) related internal features of the SLAM ER. For training realism, warhead and other motor components involved in the Render Safe Procedures (RSP) are replicated with inert or expended tactical or mechanically simulated components.

g. Upgrades. The SLAM ER ATA system incorporates hardware and software updates to the SLAM ER AUR. ATA performs automatic target selection by comparing the stored reference image with the seeker image, thus reducing operator workload. ATA autonomously performs pre-planned target selection and designation without MITL intervention, allow the operator to return to the MITL mode, and retain the performance of the baseline SLAM ER system. The SLAM ER ATA weapon system was delivered to the fleet in third quarter FY00.

H. CONCEPTS

1. Operational Concept. The SLAM ER is designed to deploy with tactical units of the Navy and Marine Corps. It is intended for use by F/A-18 Aircraft Pilots.

2. Maintenance Concept. The SLAM ER maintenance concept closely follows that of the SLAM and eliminates the need for Naval Weapons Station expanded intermediate level maintenance. It conforms to the requirements of Office of The Chief of Naval Operations Instruction (OPNAVINST) 8000.16 (series), Naval Ordnance Maintenance Management Program (NOMMP), with a slight modification. The maintenance concept allocates maintenance functions to the organizational, intermediate, and depot levels of maintenance. The prime contractor at the Designated Overhaul Point (DOP) will perform depot level maintenance. The CATM maintenance concept follows the identical system in place to support the tactical AGM-84H. The DATM maintenance concept is also organizational to depot. The DOP for the DATM is Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), Indian Head Division, Indian Head, Maryland.

a. Organizational. Organizational level maintenance consists of those functions normally performed by an operating unit on a day-to-day basis in support of its own operation. Organizational maintenance is usually accomplished by aircraft specific weapons personnel assigned to a maintenance department to support the missions and task of the performing activity. Organizational level maintenance deals with the missile only as an AUR and consists of visual inspection; upload and download; Built-In Test (BIT); install and remove fins, lanyards, and umbilicals; and compliance with Naval Ammunition Reclassification Codes (NARs) and Technical Directive Bulletins.

    • Visual inspections (special, conditional, preflight, and postflight)
    • Preflight on-aircraft functional test
    • Attaching screw-on type wings and fins (including replacement of external hardware)
    • Compliance with NARs
    • Compliance with TDs

b. Intermediate. Intermediate level maintenance is performed by Navy and Marine Corps Aviation Ordnancemen with Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) 6801 or Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) 6541 at weapons departments and consists of missile canning and decanning (containerizing and decontainerizing).

    • Visual inspection (special, conditional, and breakout)
    • Attaching screw-on type wings and fins (including replacement of external hardware)
    • Breakout, strikeup, and strikedown from/to magazines
    • Corrosion control treatment and repainting
    • Visual inspection of containers and cradles
    • Compliance with NARs
    • Compliance with TDs
    • Reprogramming
    • All-up-round and section testing

c. Depot. Depot level maintenance is performed by the manufacturer, Boeing and its sub-contractors (except for Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) on those parts determined to be beyond the capabilities of organizational or intermediate level maintenance). Sections are repaired by fault-isolating to a discrepant Weapon Replaceable Assembly (WRA), removing and replacing the WRA, and retesting to verify operational performance capability. Discrepant WRAs are repaired by fault-isolating to a faulty Shop Replaceable Assembly (SRA), removing and replacing the SRA, and retesting. Discrepant SRAs will be repaired by fault-isolating to the piece part or sub-SRA, removing and replacing the defective item, and retesting. The DOP for the DATM is NAVSEA, Indian Head Division. The Packaging, Handling, Storage, and Transportation Center, Earle, New Jersey, will perform container repair. IIR seeker repair will be performed at Letterkenny Army Depot.

    • Visual inspection (special, conditional, and breakout)
    • All-up-round assembly and disassembly
    • All-up-round and section testing
    • Fault isolation to the section level (including disassembly and assembly)
    • Section repair (guidance and control)
    • Replacement of warhead components (fuzes and booster, safe/arm devices, firing switches, etc.)
    • Replacement of rocket motor components (igniters, exit cones, nozzles, and safe/arm devices)
    • Visual inspection and refurbishment of containers and cradles
    • Paint touchup and cleaning
    • Compliance with NARs
    • Compliance with TDs
    • Component X-ray

d. Life-Cycle Maintenance Plan. NA

3. Manning Concept. The introduction of the SLAM ER into the Navy inventory will not alter manning requirements at organizational, intermediate, or depot level activities. Aircrew manpower is driven by seat factor and crew ratio. Enlisted manning for fleet squadrons, Fleet Readiness Squadrons (FRS), and intermediate level maintenance activities is based on the total assigned workload, not only on specific SLAM ER requirements. Skills required to support the SLAM ER are considered to be within the capability of existing NECs.

The Navy Squadron Training Matrices (COMNAVAIRPACINST 3500.67 [series]/ COMNAVAIRLANTINST 3500.63 [series]) for the F/A-18 Aircraft were used to estimate peacetime manpower requirements for the SLAM ER. These instructions provide annual aircrew training requirements for SLAM, which include events that involve captive carry and live fire ordnance.

For Navy F/A-18 squadrons, the only training events that involve the use of AGM-84E or CATM-84E are event number 43 (Weapons Air-to-Ground 21 SLAM/Pod Captive Carry) and event number 59 (Weapons Air-to-Ground 37 SLAM Shoot). For both events, the requirement is intended to provide SLAM missile qualification. The SLAM Shoot is required once every ten years per aircrewman, while the SLAM/Pod Captive Carry is required six times per year (three flights every 180 days) per aircrewman. Using a worst case of one sortie per SLAM/Pod Captive Carry and based on 17 aircrewman per squadron, there is a possibility of 104 AGM-84E/CATM-84E loading-downloading cycles per F/A-18 squadron per year (102 SLAM/Pod Captive Carry events plus two live shot events). Loading cycles include de-containerizing, transport, assembly, upload, download, disassembly, transport, and containerizing of the AGM-84E or CATM-84E. Thus five F/A-18 AOs (NEC 8342 or 8842/MOS 6531) and three Weapons Department AOs (NEC 6801/MOS 6541) are required to support annual AGM-84E/CATM-84E loading cycles per F/A-18 squadron, even though only a portion of their workload will be driven by AGM-84E. Since the SLAM ER is a retrofit to the SLAM weapon system, SLAM ER requirements should remain the same as the analysis shown above.

4. Training Concept. Operator training is provided for F/A-18 Pilot and Weapons System Officer (WSO) personnel. The SLAM ER training concept is divided into organizational and intermediate level maintenance based on the philosophy outlined in the NOMMP, OPNAVINST 8000.16 (Series). Organizational level training is provided to operator and maintenance personnel. Organizational level maintenance training is provided to AO personnel in the F/A-18 community with NECs 8342 and 8842 and MOS 6531. Intermediate level training is provided to Navy AO personnel with NEC 6801 and Marine Corps personnel with MOS 6541.

The established training concept for most aviation maintenance training divides "A" School courses into two or more segments called Core and Strand. The "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" School, graduates attend the appropriate Initial "C" School for additional specific training. Initial "C" School training is intended for students with a paygrade of E-4 and below who are going to an organizational level activity. Career "C" School training is provided for organizational level E-5 and above personnel to enhance skills and knowledge within their field. Intermediate level training is not separated into initial and career training.

a. Initial Training. All the following initial training has been completed. No further initial training is planned. The following table lists the formal initial training for SLAM ER. The target audience for these classes were the first cadre of personnel to support SLAM ER (i.e. DT/OT personnel), technical support personnel, IMI developers, and Navy instructors (i.e. SFWS instructors, Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET) or Naval Air Maintenance Training Unit (NAMTRAU) instructors, etc.), who are responsible for teaching follow-on training to USN personnel. Maintenance personnel (Aviation Ordnancemen) for organizational and intermediate level maintenance received the first instruction for courses SAH-1A and SAL-3A in support of the Maintainability Demonstration. The Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division China Lake Harpoon/SLAM Program Office provided F/A-18 Upload and Download training (SAL-3A) for VX-9 squadron AOs to support pre-DT/OT training flights.

b. Follow-on Training. Training for the SLAM ER is available as of first quarter FY00. Boeing-developed factory training has been incorporated into existing operator and maintenance courses as follow-on training, and all school houses are ready for training. EOD training is being developed from Boeing-provided source material. The SLAM ER causes no change in the student throughput or chargeable students billets.

(1) Operator Training. Pilots are trained in SLAM ER theory of operation, functional description, tactical performance, weapon delivery, cockpit switchology, flight training, and missile firings in post-FRS training programs and normal squadron weapons training programs. After completion of F/A-18 FRS training, Pilots receive their specific squadron assignments. Within the squadron, the SLAM ER Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) are designated for SLAM ER training. Squadron designated SLAM ER SMEs attend SFWS for individual training on the SLAM ER. This training consists of lectures, IMI, simulator training, and flight training exercises using CATMs. After completion of SFWS training, SLAM ER SMEs return to their squadrons and continue to train using CATM flights and IMI. The Carrier Air Wing will participate in Carrier Air Wing training at NSAWC. There, F/A-18 Aircrews participate in coordinated strike scenarios using SLAM ER as part of Carrier Air Wing work-ups before deployment. Finally, the Carrier Airwing SLAM ER SMEs will receive SLAM ER exercise training at Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division Point Mugu, where they will be trained for Simulation Flight and live launch. Aircrews will be trained on checklist, employment procedures, and lessons learned from previous fleet firings. Eventually, SLAM ER training will be absorbed into the Strike Fighter Training Program (SFTP). When USMC F/A-18 squadrons are assigned to the carrier airwing, USMC pilots will receive SLAM ER training as required. TDs for SLAM ER operator training include:

    • Captive Air Training Missile. The CATM-84H is an inert, captive flight, training missile that permits exercise of SLAM ER pre-launch employment procedures and MITL terminal guidance.

The following table lists the applicable operator training courses. The SLAM ER source material has been incorporated in these courses with minimal impact. This caused no change in student throughput or chargeable student billets, and, therefore, these courses will not appear in Parts II and III. Furthermore, the source material are being incorporated into the SFWS curricula and any other training that is provided to the operator as post-FRS training. All of the following courses are currently on-line.

(2) Organizational Maintenance. Organizational level maintenance personnel are trained at the appropriate Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) for specific aircraft maintenance. Weapon loading skills are further enhanced at SFWS and through onboard proficiency training. Training Devices for SLAM ER organizational level maintenance training include:

    • Dummy Air Training Missile. The DATM-84H is an inert replica of the AGM-84H, which adequately satisfies the organizational level training requirements. It facilitates instruction and familiarization of SLAM ER handling, loading, and visual inspection procedures for organizational level maintenance training purposes. The DATM is not certified for flight and is designed for ground training use only. The CATM-84H is a suitable replacement for the DATM-84H.

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) 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 the Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System (AMTCS). Current planning is for AMTCS to begin full implementation in October 2000.

COMNAVAIRPAC has discontinued using MTIP. They are currently using maintenance data products as a source to determine maintenance training deficiencies until AMTCS is implemented.

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 Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) mandated "just-in-time" training approach.

Technology investments enable the development of several state-of-the-art training and administrative tools: IMI for the technicians in the Fleet in the form of 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 (N889H), 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.

c. Strike Fighter Training Program. NSAWC N7 (Topgun), SFWS Atlantic and SFWS Pacific are developing post-FRS training at the squadron level for Navy Strike Fighter aircraft (F/A-18). This post-FRS training continuum is known as the SFTP and is composed of three equally critical elements: the Strike Fighter Weapons and Tactics (SFWT) curricula, the Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor (SFTI), and the SFTS. The SFWT curricula will be taught by each squadron's SFTI, who will be supported by the SFTS, an IMI system that will host CMI and CAI. Aircrew weapons proficiency training will continue to be accomplished using existing methods: Academic, Simulator (e.g., Weapons Tactics Trainer (WTT)/Weapons System Trainer (WST)), CATM and/or embedded aircraft simulation, and live missile shots supported by the Non-Combat Expenditure Allowance. However, capability ratings will be based on performance rather than completion, i.e., it will not be based simply upon completing the training events, but upon how well they are completed. Training events will be measured using defined metrics, and collectively these events will be evaluated to determine actual combat readiness, quantitatively (objectively) rather than qualitatively (subjectively).

2. Personnel Qualification Standards. Existing shipboard and EOD Personnel Qualification Standards are being updated.

3. Other Onboard and In-service Training Packages. Squadron loading teams will maintain their proficiency by participating in frequent upload and download training exercises.

The Conventional Weapon Technical Proficiency Inspection (CWTPI) is a graded inspection administered by SFWS. The CWTPI covers all areas of conventional weapon load and release, and control systems checks. The inspection evaluates the squadron's ability to wire-check, upload and download conventional ordnance, use applicable publications, and place ordnance on its designated target. The squadron inspection is conducted annually, six months prior to deployment, or at the request of the squadron's Commanding Officer. All personnel directly involved in the inspection, including squadron Pilots require a written examination. A 72 hour time limit is granted for the completion of the entire evolution. The final grade is an average score derived from the written exams, ordnance loads, wire checks, and the Pilot's proficiency to deliver weapons on target. Pre-inspection training is provided by the appropriate SFWS followed by the CWTPI. The CWTPI determines the need for further conventional weapons load training of squadron AO and Aviation Electronics Technician personnel at the appropriate school.

a. Explosive Handling Qualification and Certification Program. The Ammunition and Explosive Handling Qualification and Certification (QUAL/CERT) Program is implemented by OPNAVINST 8020.14 and MCO P8020.11. To minimize the probability of mishap, the potential for personnel errors are controlled through training (qualification) coupled with a management process designed to prevent inadequately trained personnel from performing ammunition and explosives jobs/tasks (certification). Aviation Ordnancemen are required to perform periodic, local QUAL/CERT events in order to be authorized to handle ordnance. Results of these QUAL/CERT events are documented in a hardcopy QUAL/CERT Record and kept on file by the local activity.
