EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This Navy Training System Plan identifies the manpower, personnel, and training requirements associated with the AN/ARC-182(V) Radio Set. The AN/ARC-182(V) is installed and will be installed in many Navy and Marine Corps aircraft. The AN/ARC-182(V) Radio Set is in the Production and Deployment Phase of the Weapon System Acquisition Process.

The AN/ARC-182(V) Radio Set is a radio communications system that provides Navy and Marine Corps aircraft with direct securable communications with land, air, and sea forces. The AN/ARC-182(V), when operated with a C-11984 Control Unit, provides a frequency hopping anti-jam capability in the Ultra-High Frequency mode. This feature is called "HAVE QUICK."

Navy Aviation Electronics Technicians (AT) with the appropriate aircraft-specific Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) and Marine Corps personnel with the appropriate aircraft-specific Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) perform AN/ARC-182(V) organizational maintenance. AN/ARC-182(V) intermediate level maintenance is performed by ATs with NEC 6611 or by Marine Corps personnel with MOS 6412. Depot maintenance is performed at the Naval Aviation Depot, North Island, California.

Existing skills and manpower levels are sufficient to support the AN/ARC-182(V). No additional manpower is required.

Initial organizational level maintenance training was provided by Naval Aviation Engineering Services Unit representatives as the AN/ARC-182(V) was introduced into each type aircraft. Rockwell Collins conducted initial intermediate level maintenance training for cadre and instructor personnel. Follow-on organizational level training is provided by modifying the appropriate Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET) course for each type aircraft to include the AN/ARC-182(V). Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 1038, NAMTRAGRU DET, Naval Air Station (NAS) Lemoore, California, developed a formal intermediate maintenance course. This intermediate level course is currently taught at the following three locations:

    • MTU 1038, NAMTRAGRU DET, NAS Lemoore, California
    • MTU 1007, NAMTRAGRU DET, NAS Oceana, Virginia
    • MTU 3001, NAMTRAGRU DET, Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, North Carolina

D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. Operational Uses. The AN/ARC-182(V) is a radio communications system that provides Navy and Marine Corps aircraft with direct securable communications with land, air, and sea forces. The system enables Amplitude Modulation (AM), Frequency Modulation (FM), and data link communications in the Very High Frequency (VHF) and Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) bands. When operated with a C-11984 Control Unit, the system provides a frequency hopping, anti-jam capability in the UHF mode. This feature is called "HAVE QUICK". The system is compatible with commercial and international airway communications for safety of flight.

2. Foreign Military Sales. The AN/ARC-182 (V) is installed on various platforms delivered to Foreign Military Sales (FMS) customers. The United States Coast Guard (USCG) procured 45 AN/ARC-182(V) Radio Sets in Fiscal Year (FY)90.

E. DEVELOPMENTAL TEST AND OPERATIONAL TEST. Technical Evaluation (TECHEVAL) was successfully conducted from June to September 1982. TECHEVAL consisted of laboratory tests at the Naval Avionics Center, Indianapolis, Indiana, and at the Naval Surface Weapons Center, Dahlgren, Virginia. Flight and ground tests were conducted at the Naval Air Test Center (NATC), Patuxent River, Maryland. The AN/ARC-182(V) system was tested in the A-6E, A-7E, E-2C, F-4J, F-14A, UH-1N, and CH-46E aircraft.

NATC personnel completed Operational Evaluation (OPEVAL) in the E-2C, F-14A, CH-46E, and CH-53D aircraft in May 1983. The Commander, Operational Test and Evaluation Force (COMOPTEVFOR) completed operational test and evaluation of the AN/ARC-182(V) in May 1983. OPEVAL for the HAVE QUICK mode of the AN/ARC-182(V) was completed in mid-1984. OPEVAL in the SH-60B Light Airborne Multipurpose System (LAMPS) MK-III was completed by COMOPTEVFOR in February 1990. Follow-on Test and Evaluation were conducted to verify installation as the AN/ARC-182(V) was introduced to each new type aircraft.

F. AIRCRAFT AND/OR EQUIPMENT/SYSTEM/SUBSYSTEM REPLACED. The AN/ARC-182(V) Receiver-Transmitter (RT) is a functional replacement for the following radio sets:

CONSOLE MOUNTED RADIOS

AVIONICS BAY MOUNTED RADIOS

AN/ARC-114A

AN/ARC-27

AN/ARC-159(V)2

G. DESCRIPTION OF NEW DEVELOPMENT

1. Functional Description. The AN/ARC-182(V) UHF/VHF Radio provides Navy and Marine Corps aircraft with direct securable communications with elements of air, sea, and land forces. It is compatible with commercial and international airway communications for safety of flight. The HAVE QUICK frequency hopping mode of the AN/ARC-182(V) is not available with early model AN/ARC-182(V)s using the RT-1250 RT. (See Table I-1 for a list of the ARC-182(V) family of equipment). The AN/ARC-182(V) transmits and receives AM or FM signals over a large frequency range.

HAVE QUICK is an anti-jam waveform that uses frequency hopping techniques. For two or more radios to successfully communicate on a HAVE QUICK NET, the following three conditions must occur:

    • Each radio must have the same Time-Of-Day (TOD).
    • Each radio must have the same Word-Of-Day (WOD).
    • Each radio must be operating on the same NET.

a. HAVE QUICK NET Modes. A NET number selects the Frequency Table that will be used. Part of the NET number also determines the Mode for the type of NET to be used. NET Modes are listed below:

(1) COMBAT Mode

(a) HAVE QUICK I. There are 1000 HAVE QUICK I NETs.

(b) North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). There are 1000 HAVE QUICK II NATO NETs.

(c) Non-NATO. There are 1000 HAVE QUICK II Non-NATO NETs.

(2) Training Modes

(a) Training-NETs. There are five HAVE QUICK I Training NETs.

(b) FM Training-NETs. There are 16 HAVE QUICK II Training NETs.

(3) Word-Of-Day and Multiple-Word-Of-Day. A WOD is a transmission security variable that consists of six segments of six digits each. The WOD is loaded into the unit to key the HAVE QUICK system to the proper hopping pattern, rate, and dwell time.

Each HAVE QUICK II unit has the capability of storing Combat WODs or Multiple-Word-Of-Days (MWOD), or training WODs or MWODs.

(4) Time-Of-Day. A TOD is a signal that synchronizes HAVE QUICK units to a common time-base for anti-jam operation.

There are two methods of time distribution to use with HAVE QUICK. One method involves a HAVE QUICK radio using the self-start (Emergency Time Start) mode and then acting as a master clock to transmit that time to the other units. The second method involves all units receiving Universal Coordinated Time (UCT). Since time references provided by sources can differ, and time validity is from four to six hours, a time distribution method must be established to ensure the necessary synchronization.

In the HAVE QUICK II System, the Operational Date (Op-Date) is a part of the TOD that also is very important. The Op-Date is automatically loaded and then the UCT is used; otherwise, the Op-Date must be manually entered into the unit.

2. Physical Description. The individual aircraft installation configurations consist of cockpit panel-mounted transceivers, remote control transceivers with control units, and the appropriate aircraft antenna. These basic installations may be supplemented with remote frequency indicators, channel indicators, filters, amplifiers, and separately controlled switching equipment. This optional equipment provides an automatic relay capability when the AN/ARC-182(V) radio set is interconnected with another AN/ARC-182(V) or AN/ARC-159(V) radio set. This interconnection permits one radio set to automatically retransmit signals being received by the other. The AN/ARC-182(V) equipment family includes the following major components. (See Table I-1 for model and part numbers).

a. Remote-Mounted Receiver-Transmitters. Each remote-mounted RT is 4.875 inches high, 5.0 inches wide, and 9.0 inches long, weighing ten pounds.

b. Panel-Mounted Receiver-Transmitters. Each console-mounted transceiver is 4.875 inches high, 5.75 inches wide, and 8.0 inches long, weighing ten pounds.

c. Radio Set Control. The half-size control fits in a standard panel opening, 2.25 inches high, 5.75 inches wide, and 5.5 inches deep. It is used in conjunction with the RT-1250A/ARC, or other remote mounted AN/ARC-182(V) RTs. It provides frequency control and mode selection. It can also be used with the panel-mounted RT when a dual control installation is desired. Control selection is through a TAKE COMMAND line.

d. HAVE QUICK II Radio Set Control. The HAVE QUICK II control provides remote control of the AN/ARC-182(V) Radio Set in normal operation, or during operation in the HAVE QUICK II mode. It is 2.25 inches high, 5.75 inches wide, and 5.5 inches deep, weighing three pounds.

e. Switching Unit Control. The switching unit control, in conjunction with a switching unit, provides the operator with a means of selecting the RELAY mode and the ENCRYPTED VOICE modes. The control is 2.25 inches high, 5.75 inches wide, and 3.7 inches deep, weighing approximately three pounds.

f. Switching Unit. The switching unit is used during auto-relay of secure voice communications. The switching unit is 3.1 inches high, 3.1 inches wide, and 8.5 inches long, weighing 3.5 pounds.

g. Frequency-Channel Indicators. These indicators provide frequency and preset channel readouts for installations where the RT or the control unit is not readily visible by the pilots or operators. The indicator is 1.325 inches high by 3.3 inches wide, weighing 1.1 pounds.

h. Antenna (Tail Cap and Ventral Fin). The antenna element becomes a part of existing tail cap designs; therefore, a different version is required for each aircraft type.

i. Antenna (Blade). The antenna for the AN/ARC-182(V) has the same size and form factor as the AS-1108 antenna currently in the Navy inventory. The AS-3191/A blade antenna is designed for use on subsonic aircraft.

j. Filter. The filter provides co-location operation for the RT-1250A/ARC RECEIVE and TRANSMIT modes. The UHF filter is 4.9 inches high, 3.65 inches wide, and 15.8 inches deep, weighing 7.5 pounds.

k. High Power Amplifier. The High Power Amplifier (HPA) provides amplification to 30 watts in the 225-400 MHz UHF frequency band for the RT-1250A/ARC. The HPA is 4.6 inches high, 5.0 inches wide, and 4.9 inches deep, weighing 4.2 pounds.

l. Mounting Base. The mounting base is used with the RT-1250A/ARC, the AM-7177A/ARC, and the F-1556A/ARC and fits in the same space as an AN/ARC-51 transceiver. The dimensions with a full-up system are 9.5 inches wide, 7.5 inches high, and 17.5 inches deep, weighing 32.5 pounds (the mounting base alone weighs 10.8 pounds).

3. New Development Introduction. The AN/ARC-182(V) has been retrofitted into operational aircraft. The system is installed in new aircraft during production.

4. Significant Interfaces. The AN/ARC-182(V) interfaces and is fully compatible with other airborne, shore, and ship UHF communications systems. The AN/ARC-182(V) radio system, with the exception of the RT-1360A/ARC, interfaces with other onboard avionics through a MIL-STD-1553B data bus, if the aircraft is so equipped. The AN/ARC-182(V) interfaces with the intercommunications systems in all configurations.

5. New Features, Configurations, or Material. ECP-1046 incorporated HAVE QUICK capability to the AN/ARC-182(V).

H. CONCEPTS

1. Operational Concept. The pilot or other crewmembers operate the AN/ARC-182(V).

2. Maintenance Concept. AN/ARC-182(V) maintenance is performed per organizational, intermediate, and depot level maintenance procedures outlined in the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program (NAMP), OPNAVINST 4790.2G.

a. Organizational

(1) Preventive Maintenance. AN/ARC-182(V) organizational level preventive maintenance is limited to corrosion control. Corrosion control procedures are performed per the NAVAIR 16-1-540 and NAVAIR 01-1A-509 Maintenance Instruction Manuals.

(2) Corrective Maintenance. AN/ARC-182(V) organizational level corrective maintenance is performed by squadron Aviation Electronics Technicians (AT) with the appropriate aircraft Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) and Marine Corps personnel with the appropriate aircraft Communication, Navigation, and Identification Military Occupational Specialty (MOS). Organizational level maintenance involves the repair and replacement of consumable wiring, connectors, radio frequency cabling, external lamps, fuses, and relays. Built-In Test (BIT) and operational testing procedures are used to isolate problems to a faulty Weapon Replaceable Assembly (WRA) or antenna. Faulty WRAs are sent to the intermediate level repair facility and are replaced with Ready For Issue (RFI) WRAs to return the system to a full operational condition.

b. Intermediate. ATs with NEC 6611 and Marine Corps personnel with MOS 6412 from Work Center 610 maintain the AN/ARC-182(V). Intermediate level corrective maintenance consists of isolating and verifying faulty WRAs and replacing faulty SRAs. Isolation and verification of faulty WRAs is performed using the ARM-200A Test Set.

Intermediate maintenance personnel replace faulty SRAs in all AN/ARC-182(V) WRAs except for the following items: the C-10319A, C-10319B, C-10319 (XN-1/TH/5), AM-7177A, F-1556, F-1556A, F-1556B, MT-6330, MT-6330A, C-11128, C-11984, C-10776A, C-10777, SA-2498, and 515F-1. These items are repaired at the depot level. The AS-3191 antenna is a consumable item and, therefore, is not repaired. Defective SRAs are sent to the Naval Aviation Depot (NAVAVNDEPOT) North Island for depot level maintenance.

c. Depot. The AN/ARC-182(V) depot level maintenance is performed at Singapore Rockwell. Depot level maintenance includes repair of WRAs and SRAs to the piece-part level. Repaired assemblies are verified as RFI and returned to the supply system.

d. Interim Maintenance. Not Applicable (NA)

e. Life-Cycle Maintenance Plan. NA

3. Manning Concept. Manpower requirements for the AN/ARC-182(V) are based on the total workload and skills needed to maintain these systems. Manpower was previously in place for radios replaced by the AN/ARC-182(V). Navy ATs with the appropriate aircraft NEC, and Marine Corps personnel with the appropriate MOS for each type aircraft perform organizational maintenance. Navy ATs with NEC 6611 and Marine Corps personnel with MOS 6412 perform intermediate maintenance. Existing skill levels and manpower are sufficient to support the maintenance requirements of the AN/ARC-182(V).

4. Training Concept. Operator training for the AN/ARC-182(V) is provided during pilot and aircrew training at the aircraft-specific Fleet Readiness Squadrons (FRS). Organizational level maintenance training for Navy and Marine Corps personnel is provided through Naval Air Maintenance Training Group Detachment (NAMTRAGRU DET) courses for each type of aircraft and are conducted at Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) activities. AN/ARC-182(V) intermediate level training for AT 6611 and MOS 6412 personnel are conducted by:

    • MTU 1038, NAMTRAGRU DET Naval Air Station (NAS) Lemoore, California
    • MTU 1007, NAMTRAGRU DET NAS Oceana, Virginia
    • MTU 3001, NAMTRAGRU DET Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point, North Carolina.

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 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 E-5 and above personnel to enhance skills and knowledge within their field.

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 NEC Manual, NAVPERS 18068F Volume II, Chapter IV, NEC.

a. Initial Training. The contractor, Collins Avionics and Communications Division (CACD) of Rockwell International, provided initial training to a group of selected military and civilian personnel during the period of January 1983 to September 1985.

(1) Operator. NA

(2) Maintenance. The contractor provided intermediate level maintenance training in the skills required to maintain the AN/ARC-182(V) and its associated test equipment to selected NAMTRAGRU DET instructors at CACD of Rockwell International in Cedar Rapids, and at NAMTRAGRU DETs Lemoore, Cecil Field, and Oceana during the period of January 1983 to May 1985.

(3) Instructor Training. Initial training for intermediate level instructor personnel from MTUs 1038 and 1039 took place at NAMTRAGRU DET Cecil Field in September 1985.

b. Follow-on Training

(1) Operator. Pilot and Naval Flight Officer (NFO) training courses were updated to include the AN/ARC-182(V) concurrent with the initial installation of the unit in the applicable aircraft. Trained Naval Aviation Engineering Services Unit (NAESU) personnel were available to provide interim training as required. The Naval Air Training and Operating Procedures Standardization (NATOPS) Manuals for each aircraft type were updated to include the AN/ARC-182(V).

Note: In October 1998, NAESU merged with Naval Air Technical Support Facility (NATSF) to form the Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Service Command (NATEC).

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 for fleet deployment on 01 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 Commercial Off the Shelf 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.

2. Personnel Qualification Standards. NA

3. Other Onboard or In-Service Training Packages. Marine Corps onboard 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 planned to be replaced by AMTCS in approximately FY02.)

2. Program Documentation. The AN/ARC-182(V) Radio Set Integrated Logistics Support Plan (ILSP) Revision K is dated 30 April 1994.

3. Technical Data Plan. Intermediate level Technical Publications for the AN/ARC-182(V) maintenance training are itemized in Part IV.B.3 of this document. All required publications have been delivered.

4. Test Sets, Tools, and Test Equipment. The Peculiar Support Equipment required at the intermediate level is the ARM-200A or the TS-4110/ARC. However, the TS-4110/ARC Test Set is only being used by Marine Corps personnel when space requirements prohibit the use of the ARM-200A. The ARM-200A Test Set was developed to eliminate the need for the various test sets previously required to support the AN/ARC-182(V) family of equipment. The following systems are tested on the ARM-200A:

    • AN/ARC-182(V) Radio Set and its ancillary equipment
    • RT-1379 Data Link
    • E-2C peculiar AN/ARC-182(V) equipment
    • HAVE QUICK Electronic Counter-Countermeasures Control

The following systems are tested on the TS-4110/ARC:

    • C-10319/ARC Control Box
    • C-12109/ARC Control Box
    • RT-1250A Receiver-Transmitter
    • RT-1324A Receiver-Transmitter

5. Repair Parts. The Naval Inventory Control Point (NAVICP), Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, per the approved ILSP and the Maintenance Plan, provisioned the AN/ARC-182(V). The Material Support Date was achieved in March 1988.

6. Human Systems Integration. NA
