G. DESCRIPTION OF NEW DEVELOPMENT

1. Functional Description. The A/S 32M-14 and A/S 32M-17 cranes are self-contained units capable of lifting 17,000 pounds at a working radius of 10 feet, and 3,300 pounds with the boom fully extended to a working radius of 39 feet. Telescoping, elevating, and swinging the boom, as well as operation of the winch, are accomplished through the use of hydraulics. A computerized overload warning system warns the operator of craning conditions that approach safety limits. Independently controlled and hydraulically operated outriggers provide stabilization. The A/S 32M-14 and A/S 32M-17 cranes are divided into seven major assemblies or subassemblies, as follows:

a. Carrier Assembly. The carrier assembly supports the engine, transmission, drive axles, and wheel assemblies. It consists of a fabricated steel frame incorporating axle housings, mounts, wheel assemblies, a boom support swing-circle base, a rear-end hook, and outrigger assemblies.

b. Crane Assembly. The crane assembly provides the crane's lifting action. The crane assembly consists of a fully revolving base with pedestal-type boom support, a sectional extendible boom, wire rope drum, wire rope, hook block, sheaves, rope guards, bucket, and operating controls.

c. Hydraulic System. The hydraulic system provides the pressure necessary for the crane to achieve the lifting capability of 8-1/2 tons. The hydraulic system includes pumps, hydraulic rams, strainers, reservoir, pressure relief valves, hose assemblies, lockouts, restrictors, and control valves to ensure positive control of the boom hoist and rope hoist in all operations including loss of hydraulic power.

d. Brake Systems. The brake system consists of a mechanical parking brake which provides a locking device to the transmission output shaft to achieve two wheel emergency braking operation , and hydraulically operated conventional drum type service brakes at all four wheels for normal braking operation.

e. Propulsion System. Power to operate the crane and vehicle is supplied by the conventional drive train and a four-cylinder internal combustion diesel engine as described in the following:

(1) A/S 32M-14 Crane. The A/S 32M-14 crane uses a conventional drive train consisting of a six-speed Clarke automatic transmission, driven by a torque converter and a four-cylinder internal combustion Detroit diesel engine.

(2) A/S 32M-17 Crane. The A/S 32M-17 crane uses a conventional drive train consisting of a three-speed Clarke automatic transmission, driven by a torque converter and a four-cylinder internal combustion Cummins diesel engine.

f. Control and Electrical System. Electrical and craning control power is provided by a conventional electrical system. The electrical circuit provides power for starting, lighting, instrumentation, and electro-hydraulics. The control and electrical system includes engine and transmission temperature and pressure sensors, wiring harness, instrument panel gages, intercom system and controls, and switches which monitor the starting and operation of the unit.

g. Steering System. Steering capability is accomplished at all four wheels by two independent steering systems. The front wheel steering is provided by a conventional steering wheel. An angle sensor mounted on the front wheels provides the rear wheel steering. Rear steering is used primarily to maneuver the crane in close, where minimum clearance is allowed. The steering system includes the operator's steering wheel assembly and engine driven power steering pump.

5. New Features, Configurations, or Material. NA

H. CONCEPTS

1. Operational Concept. The A/S 32M-14 and A/S 32M-17 cranes are operated, ashore only, by a minimum of two licensed active duty or reserve Navy or Marine Corps aviation maintenance personnel to provide support for aircraft maintenance. Licenses are obtained by attending an operator's course at the local Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Department (AIMD) or Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron (MALS). The primary operator is positioned in the cab and performs the maneuvering and craning operations. The second person acts as the director and safety observer, providing the necessary hand signals.

2. Maintenance Concept. A/S 32M-14 and A/S 32M-17 crane maintenance is performed per Office of the Chief of Naval Operations Instruction (OPNAVINST) 4790.2G, Naval Aviation Maintenance Program, which is based upon three levels of maintenance: organizational, intermediate, and depot.

a. Organizational. Aviation maintenance ratings of operating units perform organizational level maintenance on a day to day basis in support of their own mission.

(1) Preventive Maintenance. Licensed personnel in various aviation maintenance ratings perform Preventive Maintenance (PM) that is confined to pre-operational and post-operational inspections, daily inspections, and limited servicing per the Maintenance Requirement Cards.

(2) Corrective Maintenance. Organizational level Corrective Maintenance (CM) is not authorized.

b. Intermediate. Navy AS personnel with Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) 7616 at AIMDs and Marine Corps personnel with Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) 6072 in the MALS Support Equipment (SE) Division are responsible for maintenance performed in the day to day support of the A/S 32M-14 and A/S 32M-17 cranes.

(1) Preventive Maintenance. PM includes pre-operational inspections, periodic inspections, cleaning, and servicing.

(2) Corrective Maintenance. CM includes fault isolation, testing, adjustments, repair, removal, and replacement actions per Maintenance Instructional Manuals. Both the A/S 32M-14 and A/S 32M-17 cranes are under the Support Equipment Quick Engine Change Program. If the engine requires replacement, the engine and transmission are removed and replaced as one assembly with all external components remaining in place. If a transmission requires replacement, the transmission may be removed and replaced in lieu of a complete assembly change. Maintenance on the starter motor is limited to inspection, removal, and replacement of brushes and solenoid. Maintenance on the alternator is limited to inspection, removal, and replacement of brushes, diode pack, and regulator. The AIMD or MALS personnel perform alignment and adjustment of the computerized overload warning system.

c. Depot. Depot level maintenance of the A/S 32M-14 and A/S 32M-17 cranes is performed at Naval Aviation Depots (NAVAVNDEPOTs) NAS North Island, California, and Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point, North Carolina. Depot level maintenance consists of maintenance beyond the capability of intermediate maintenance activities. PM and CM actions include rework, overhaul, and repair of all major components, complete unit rebuilding, and equipment refurbishing. When the determination is made that an engine or transmission is beyond the capability of intermediate maintenance, both the engine and transmission will be removed as a quick engine change assembly and sent to the cognizant support equipment commercial engine rework facility.

d. Interim Maintenance. NA

e. Life-Cycle Maintenance Plan. Depot level maintenance includes a five-year cyclic rework, repair, or overhaul of all major components on the A/S 32M-14 and A/S 32M-17 cranes.

3. Manning Concept. The A/S 32M-14 and A/S 32M-17 cranes are operated by licensed active duty or reserve personnel in all Navy aviation ratings and all Marine Corps aviation MOSs. Navy AS personnel with NEC 7616 and Marine Corps personnel with MOS 6072 perform intermediate level maintenance.

4. Training Concept. Operator and organizational level maintenance training courses (C-600-3211 and C-600-3332) for the A/S 32M-14 and A/S 32M-17 cranes are provided to all aviation maintenance ratings at local AIMDs and MALS. Intermediate level maintenance training for Navy personnel is provided through training track D/E-602-7065. Upon completion of training track D/E-602-7065, Navy personnel receive NEC 7616. MTU 3032, NAMTRAGRU DET NAS Jacksonville, Florida, and MTU 3033 NAMTRAGRU DET NAS North Island, California, conduct intermediate level maintenance training. Marine Corps intermediate level personnel with MOS 6072 receive on-the-job training on both the A/S 32M-14 and A/S 32M-17 cranes; i.e., no formal training is required.

Selected Reserve personnel may earn intermediate level maintenance NECs by attending formal training at NAMTRAGRU DETs providing a quota and funding are available, and the student is available to attend the training. Specific guidelines are contained in NAVPERS 18068F Volume II, Chapter IV, NEC.

a. Initial Training. Initial training on the A/S 32M-14 crane was completed between June 1982 and May 1986 by Pettibone Corporation. A one-week operator course was conducted in June 1982 at Pettibone Corporation in Rome, New York. Pettibone Corporation at NAS Norfolk, Virginia, conducted two consecutive one-week maintenance courses, in April 1983. Additionally, an instructor maintenance course was taught at NAMTRAGRU DET 3032, NAS Jacksonville, in May 1986.

The Entwistle Company in Hudson, Massachusetts, completed initial operator and intermediate maintenance training on the A/S 32M-17 crane in March 1992. Initial operators and the Entwistle Company conducted intermediate maintenance training for Integrated Logistics Support evaluation personnel, initial cadre, and Navy instructors.

b. Follow-on Training. The operator and maintenance curricula were developed by the Pettibone Corporation and Entwistle Company for the A/S 32M-14 and A/S 32M-17 cranes, respectively. The Naval Air Maintenance Training Group (NAMTRAGRU) made revisions to the course materials and implemented courses at AIMDs; MALS; MTU 3032, NAMTRAGRU DET NAS Jacksonville;, Florida, and MTU 3033, NAMTRAGRU DET NAS North Island, California.

(1) Operator. Operator training courses C-600-3211 (A/S 32M-14 crane) and C-600-3332 (A/S 32M-17 crane) for organizational level personnel are four-day courses conducted by the local AIMD or MALS. No special NEC or MOS is required; however, a SE Operator License is required to operate the cranes. These courses have been developed by NAMTRAGRU and distributed to local AIMDs and MALS.

(2) Maintenance. The training track for the A/S 32M-14, A/S 32M-17 cranes also contains training for the A/S 48M-2/3 Shore-Based Aircraft Maintenance Platform.

I. ON-BOARD (IN-SERVICE) TRAINING

1. Proficiency or Other Training Organic to the New Developmentnew paragraphs from tem

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 for fleet deployment on 1 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 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 (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.

Aviation Maintenance In-Service Training (AMIST) is intended to support the fleet training requirements now satisfied by MTIP, and will be the planned replacement beginning in first quarter Fiscal Year (FY)01. However, it is structured very differently, and will function as an integral part of the new Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System (AMTCS) that will replace the existing aviation maintenance training structure. AMIST will provide standardized instruction to bridge the training gaps between initial and career training. With the implementation of AMIST, the technician will be provided the training required to maintain a level of proficiency necessary to effectively perform the required tasks to reflect career progression.

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

2. Personnel Qualification Standards. NA

3. Other On-Board or In-Service Training Packages. Marine Corps on-board training is based on the current series of MCO P4790.12, Individual Training Standards System and Maintenance Training Management and Evaluation Program (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 will be replaced by AMTCS in approximately FY02.
