Engineering Qualification (E-QUAL)/ Operational Reactor Safeguards Examination (ORSE)
E-QUAL and ORSE intervals differ in timing from the CART/TSTA/FEP process, so they cannot be incorporated into the IDTC at a fixed position. A significant amount of underway time is required for an aircraft carrier to adequately prepare for an E-QUAL or ORSE following an extended time in port. An underway period dedicated to E-QUAL/ORSE should be scheduled at the point in each ship's schedule most likely to produce a successful outcome.
