EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The A/S 32P-25 Shipboard Firefighting Vehicle is a self-propelled, self-contained, all weather, high capacity, Aqueous Film Forming Foam firefighting vehicle. From here on referred to as the P-25, it is used on aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships to replace the A/S 32P-16A Shipboard Firefighting Vehicle currently in use. The vehicle's objective is to extinguish a fire, or limit a fire's severity until other systems can be activated. The P-25 program is currently in the Production, Deployment, and Operational Support Phase of the Weapon System Acquisition Process.

Due to the similarities of the current and new production Firefighting Vehicles, and the one for one replacement, no additional maintenance manpower is required.

Operator training will continue to be conducted, as required, at local Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Departments (AIMDs), using standardized training courses provided by the Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Headquarters (NAMTRAGRU HQ). Firefighting Vehicles are operated afloat by licensed Navy active duty and reserve aviation maintenance personnel. Local operator training is provided by AIMDs, and licensing is obtained after completion of Phase II training at the operating activity. Operator training includes operation and pre/post-operational inspections of the vehicles maintained by that particular activity.

The P-25 uses the three level maintenance concept per OPNAVINST 4790.2G. Organizational level maintenance is limited to routine servicing and preoperational inspections. A new maintenance course for intermediate level maintenance was developed for the P-25 to replace the A/S 32P-16A Firefighting Vehicle course. AIMDs are responsible for the majority of maintenance performed in support of the P-25. Navy Aviation Support Equipment Technician (AS) personnel with Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) 7617 7618 perform intermediate level maintenance. Intermediate maintenance training for the P-25 is conducted at NAMTRAGRU DET Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 3032, Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET) Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville, Florida; and NAMTRAGRU DET MTU 3033, NAMTRAGRU DET NAS North Island, California. DynCorp personnel provide depot level maintenance on site when required.

D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. Operational Uses. The A/S 32P-25 Shipboard Firefighting Vehicle, from here on referred to in this document as the P-25, is an all weather, self-propelled, self-contained, firefighting vehicle. The P-25 is used on aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships to replace the A/S 32P-16A Shipboard Firefighting Vehicle currently in use. The vehicle's objective is to extinguish a fire, or limit a fire's severity until other systems can be activated.

2. Foreign Military Sales. Not Applicable (NA)NA

E. DEVELOPMENTAL TEST AND OPERATIONAL TEST. Developmental Testing was conducted at the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD), Code 4.8.12.2 (formerly Code SY55), Patuxent River, Maryland, from August 1996 to January 1997. Operational Evaluation was not required for this Acquisition Category IV-M program.

F. AIRCRAFT AND/OR EQUIPMENT/SYSTEM/SUBSYSTEM REPLACED. The P-25 is replacing, on a one-for-one basis, the A/S 32P-16A Shipboard Firefighting Vehicle.

G. DESCRIPTION OF NEW DEVELOPMENT

1. Functional Description. The P-25 is a high capacity, Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) firefighting vehicle for use aboard Naval aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships. The fire suppression system provides a standoff capability that minimizes the exposure of operating personnel to the hazards of exploding ordnance or flying debris. The P-25 is manually operated and contains an automatic Built-In Test system.

a. Speed. On a level surface, the fully loaded P-25 is capable of a sustained speed of 15 miles per hour (mph). However, the P-25's speed is governed so that it does not exceed 20 mph during normal operation.

b. Braking. The P-25 has a braking system capable of slowing and bringing the fully loaded vehicle to a complete stop in a stable manner in all operating modes including speeds of up to 20 mph within 30 feet. The P-25 has a parking brake capable of holding the fully loaded vehicle in any direction on a 30 percent grade.

c. Auxiliary Starting. An auxiliary starting system is provided, which is compatible with auxiliary power equipment conforming to MIL-STD-704. The system uses a receptacle conforming to military specification part number MS3506.

d. Operation. The P-25 operates with JP-5 jet fuel (MIL-T-5624), but is capable of operating with diesel fuel. The P-25 is capable of operating at full performance levels for two hours, and at idle for eight hours as a stand-alone system without benefit of additional equipment and materials, except for AFFF nursing lines. Full performance level is defined as continuously pumping 500 gallons per minute (gpm) six percent AFFF solution. The vehicle is capable of operating in close proximity (within 50 feet) to fires.

e. Operating Attitude. The fully loaded P-25 can maintain full functional capability in any attitude within the normal pitch and roll characteristics of aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships.

f. Operator Stations. Two operator stations are provided. One operator station provides easy reach of all vehicle controls and manual firefighting controls. The second operator station provides easy reach of the turret only. Third person capability is provided in the manner of a keel plate featuring a self-retracting mechanism that stows the keel plate within the footprint dimensions of the vehicle when unoccupied.

g. Fire Suppression. The P-25 has been designed to provide two agents for fire suppression purposes; AFFF per MIL-F-24385 and Halogenated Hydrocarbons (HALON) per MIL-B-38741. The P-25 has a minimum 800 gallon capacity AFFF system (consisting of a 750 gallon water tank, and a 50 gallon AFFF concentrate tank) capable of delivering a minimum 500-gpm flow of six percent AFFF solution through a turret assembly. It can simultaneously deliver a minimum 95-gpm flow through a 100-foot long, 1.5-inch diameter hand-line while traveling at a speed of five mph. The P-25 includes three portable 20 pound HALON 1211 Fire Extinguishers. Mounting locations are provided and allow easy removal of the extinguishers for firefighting purposes.

h. Turret. When operating at full rated capacity in a no-wind condition with the nozzle set for straight-stream flow, at least 80 percent of the turret discharge will fall beyond 150 feet within a 20-foot wide path. The turret is manually variable between straight-stream and full-fog.

i. Environment. The P-25 is capable of withstanding all pertinent shipboard environmental conditions it will encounter during its life-cycle.

2. Physical Description

Size (L x W x H) 190" x 70" x 64"

Gross weight 19,000 pounds

Under clearance 8 inches

Turning clearance 36.5 feet

3. New Development Introduction. The P-25 is being introduced as a new production replacement for the A/S 32P-16A Shipboard Firefighting Vehicle.

4. Significant Interfaces. NA

5. New Features, Configurations, or Material. The proportioning system was changed to a balanced pressure type system to reduce operator workload and to provide a consistent six- percent proportioning accuracy across the flow range. The diesel engine was replaced with one meeting all emission requirements and certified by the Environmental Protection Agency. The P-25 is also capable of supporting Night Vision operations by the installation of filters over the headlights.

H. CONCEPTS

1. Operational Concept. A team of two Aviation Boatswain Mates (Handlers) (ABHs) onboard aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships operate the P-25. One operator operates all vehicle controls and manual firefighting controls. The second operator operates the P-25 fire suppression turret only.

2. Maintenance Concept

a. Organizational. Maintenance at the organizational level is limited to preoperational inspections, replenishment of consumable fluids, and vehicle cleanliness. This maintenance is to be performed by the Air Department per Maintenance Requirement Cards (MRCs).

(1) Preventive Maintenance

    • Preoperational inspections
    • Replenishment of consumable fluids
    • Vehicle cleaning

(2) Corrective Maintenance. NA

b. Intermediate. Aviation Support Equipment Technicians (AS) personnel with, Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) 76177618, in Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Department (AIMD) Work Center 910 perform intermediate level maintenance. In addition to performing the same functions conducted at the organizational level, intermediate level maintenance includes:

(1) Preventive Maintenance

    • Servicing
    • Corrosion inspection and control
    • Fault isolation

(2) Corrective Maintenance

    • Fault isolation of malfunctioning assemblies and subassemblies
    • Performance verification upon completion of the repair
    • Removal and replacement of defective assemblies and subassemblies

c. Depot. Depot level maintenance consists of rework or overhaul of the end P-25item and repair of assemblies and subassemblies determined to be beyond AIMD repair capabilities. Depot level maintenance for west coast activities will be performed by Naval Air Systems Command Support Equipment Facility (NAVAIR SE FAC) North Island, California. Depot level maintenance for east coast activities will be performed by NAVAIR SE FAC Norfolk, Virginia. If repair is to be performed on-site, NAVAIR SE FAC will dispatch a Contract Field Team to the site to complete the maintenance action. For ships under new construction or undergoing Service Life Extension Program (SLEP), NAVAIR SE FAC Solomons, Maryland will be the control point for the P-25.

d. Interim Maintenance. Technical assistance is provided by Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Service Command (NATEC) personnel as needed.

e. Life-Cycle Maintenance Plan. The life-cycle for the P-25 is approximately 20 years. Contract Field Team (usually DynCorp) personnel will perform depot level maintenance as required.

3. Manning Concept. Operation and maintenance of the P-25 is accomplished with no change to current manpower requirements at the organizational or intermediate levels of maintenance. The total maintenance workload placed upon the AIMD by the P-25 is equal to that of the A/S 32P-16A Shipboard Firefighting Vehicle and will not affect current manning.

4. Training Concept. Existing training sites for the A/S 32P-16A Shipboard Firefighting Vehicle are utilized for the P-25. A new training course C-602-3292, A/S 32P-25 Aircraft Firefighting Truck Intermediate Maintenance, has been written to meet the requirements of the P-25 and will replace the current A/S 32P-16A training course, number C-602-3242. However, course C-602-3242, Aviation Support Equipment A/S 32P-16A Aircraft Firefighting Truck Intermediate Maintenance, will remain in place until all the A/S 32P-16A Shipboard Firefighting Vehicles trucks are replaced by the P-25. All maintenance training required is provided to Navy AS, NEC 7617 7618 personnel. ABH personnel will operate the P-25. Phase I operator training is accomplished by successful completion of the P-25 operator course. Phase II training is conducted by Air Department personnel upon completion of Phase I training.

Selected Reserve personnel may earn intermediate level maintenance NECs by attending formal training at the Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET) 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, Navy Enlisted Classifications.

a. Initial Training. The contractor has provided initial training for test and evaluation personnel. Test and evaluation personnel assigned to NAWCAD, Patuxent River Code 4.8.12.2 (formerly Code SY55), received training from EntwistleEntwistle Company personnel at Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division Lakehurst (NAWCADLKE), New Jersey. Likewise, instructor and initial cadre personnel received initial training, covering both operator and maintainer requirements, at EntwistleEntwistle Company in Hudson, Massachusetts, in June 1998.

b. Follow-on Training. Follow-on training for intermediate maintenance is conducted at existing sites for the P-25 as follows.

I. ON-BOARD (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.

b. Aviation Maintenance In-Service Training. AMIST is intended to support the Fleet training requirements now satisfied by MTIP, and in that sense is the planned replacement. 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 implementation of AMIST, technicians will be provided the training required to maintain a level of proficiency necessary to effectively perform the required tasks to reflect career progression.

c. Aviation Maintenance Training Continuum System. 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. The Naval Education and Training Professional Development and Technology Center (NETPDTC) Pensacola developed a new operator Personnel Qualification Standard (PQS).

3. Other On-Board or In-Service Training Packages. Both operator and maintenance personnel will receive On the Job Training (OJT) to enhance their training knowledge.
