EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The MH-53E Sea Dragon Helicopter's primary role is Airborne Mine Countermeasures (AMCM) missions, which include hunting, neutralizing, and destroying mines. Other duties include ancillary spotting, channel marking, and surface towing of small craft and ships. The MH-53E Helicopter is also capable of Vertical Onboard Delivery missions, as well as transportation of personnel and cargo. Initial Operating Capability was attained in FY87 upon delivery of the first MH-53E Helicopter to the fleet. All MH-53E Helicopter deliveries to the Navy have been completed. The MH-53E program is in Phase III (Production, Deployment, and Operational Support) of the Weapon System Acquisition Process.

The Navy has two MH-53E squadrons, Helicopter Mine Countermeasure Squadrons HM-14 and HM-15, consisting of both active duty and Naval Reserve aircraft. These integrated squadrons each contain ten aircraft; six active duty and four reserve. A third activity, HC-4, has nine MH-53E Helicopters; however, the aircraft are not configured for AMCM missions, and are used primarily in fleet support roles.

Several modifications to the MH-53E Helicopter are planned over the next few years. These modifications include upgrading to the T64-GE-419 engine, upgrading to the MAGR 2000 Global Positioning System (GPS), an Engineering Change Proposal to the main gearbox, and other minor Airframe Change modifications to the helicopter.

Maintenance concepts for the MH-53E Helicopter are based on the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program, OPNAVINST 4790.2 series, which details the three levels of maintenance concept. Personnel from various aviation maintenance ratings with applicable Navy Enlisted Classifications perform organizational and intermediate level maintenance. Depot level maintenance is accomplished by Naval Aviation Depot, Cherry Point, North Carolina.

Activity Manpower Documents reflect the billet structure of integrated squadrons having both active duty and reserve billets. The currently planned modifications to the MH-53E Helicopter will not cause any quantitative changes in manpower requirements.

All MH-53E Helicopter Pilots receive ground training and aircraft familiarization using simulators at Airborne Mine Countermeasures Weapon Systems Training School (AWSTS), Norfolk, Virginia. Basic MH-53E Pilot and Aircrew flight training is conducted at HMT-302, Marine Corps Air Station New River, North Carolina. Flight crews destined for AMCM activities receive further mission and tactics training at AWSTS, while MH-53E fleet support Pilots and Aircrew proceed directly to HC-4, Sigonella, Sicily. Organizational level maintenance training is conducted at Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 1031, Naval Air Maintenance Training Unit, Norfolk, Virginia. Active duty and Training and Administration of the Naval Reserve personnel train at HMT-302, AWSTS, and MTU 1031. Selected Reserve personnel receive operator and maintenance training via On-the-Job Training or by attending the appropriate courses conducted by HMT-302, AWSTS, and MTU 1031.

D. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. Operational Uses. The MH-53E Sea Dragon Helicopter is employed by Navy squadrons as the primary aircraft platform for performing Airborne Mine Countermeasures (AMCM) missions. This includes mine sweeping and ancillary spotting, mine neutralization, floating mine destruction, channel marking, and surface towing of small craft and ships. The MH-53E Helicopter also has the ability to perform Vertical Onboard Delivery (VOD) missions as well as transportation of personnel and cargo.

A new type of Navy squadron was developed by combining active duty squadrons with Naval Reserve squadrons resulting in two integrated Helicopter Mine Countermeasures Squadrons (HM), each comprised of six active duty and four reserve MH-53E Aircraft.

    • HM-14, Naval Base (NB) Norfolk, Virginia
    • HM-15, Naval Air Station (NAS) Corpus Christi, Texas

Helicopter Combat Support Squadron (HC)-4 in Sigonella, Sicily, transitioned from CH-53E to MH-53Es in April 1995. The mission of HC-4 was not affected by this transition; their assigned MH-53Es are not configured for AMCM missions.

2. Foreign Military Sales. The MH-53E Helicopter was procured by Japan directly from Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation. The Navy provides support for the procured aircraft. Contact H-53 Foreign Military Sales (FMS), Program Manager, Air (PMA) 226-0121, Cherry Point, for additional information.

E. DEVELOPMENTAL TEST AND OPERATIONAL TEST. Technical Evaluation (TECHEVAL) was conducted from July to November 1985 at the Naval Air Test Center, now the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD), Patuxent River, Maryland. Operational Evaluation (OPEVAL) was conducted by Commander, Operational Test and Evaluation Force from January through April 1986. Follow-On Test and Evaluation was conducted from October to November 1987, in December 1987, from July to September 1988, and from February to March 1990.

F. AIRCRAFT AND/OR EQUIPMENT/SYSTEM/SUBSYSTEM REPLACED. The MH-53E Helicopter replaced the RH-53D in the fleet and fleet reserve squadrons. In HC-4, the MH-53E replaced the CH-53E. The following systems in the MH-53E Helicopter are currently being replaced:

    • Egress lighting
    • Guillotine, tension, and skew system
    • Tow hook release system
    • Transfer hook and control system
    • Smoke marker rack
    • XM-218.50 caliber machine gun.

Specialized VOD equipment includes a crew stowage box and single point hook support. An interim GPS has been installed by integrating the AN/ARN-151 receiver with the Precise Navigation System (PNS).

Several changes are planned for the MH-53E Helicopter. The MH-53E will be modified with the new AN/ARC-210(V) Electronic Counter Countermeasures (ECCM) Radio System, the new T64-GE-419 engine, and an Engineering Change Proposal (ECP) to the main gearbox. The Airframes Changes (AFC) to the MH-53E include swashplate duplex bearing and tail rotor drive shaft disconnect coupling monitor (AFC 500), exterior lights for use with Night Vision Goggles (NVGs) (AFC 479 Part 4), and #2 engine thermal fire detector for the engine (AFC 440). The MH-53E major systems are briefly described below including the major modifications.

a. Avionics

(1) Digital Automatic Flight Control System Coupler System. A coupler system has been incorporated with modifications to the MH-53E Helicopter Digital Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS) computer. This provides longitudinal and lateral ground speed control, selected ground speed stabilization, and automatic altitude retention.

(2) Navigation. The AN/ARN-151 GPS is being replaced by the R-2606/U MAGR 2000 GPS, fully integrated with the aircraft navigation instruments and providing non-precision approach capability. The AN/APN-217(V)2 Radar Navigation Set is a Doppler radar that measures aircraft ground speed and drift angle. It has the unique ability to perform accurately at low airspeeds over smooth water. Additional navigation systems aboard the MH-53E Helicopter include two AN/APN-171(V) Radar Altimeters, the AN/ARN-118(V) Tactical Air Navigation (TACAN), AN/ARN-89A Automatic Direction Finder, VIR-31A Very High Frequency Omni Directional Radio (VOR)/Instrument Landing System (ILS) navigation system, and vertical gyro system.

(3) Communication. The two AN/ARC-182(V) Radios provide direct securable communications in the Ultra High Frequency (UHF) and Very High Frequency (VHF) bands. When operated with a C-11984 Control Unit, the AN/ARC-182(V) provides a frequency hopping anti-jam capability in the UHF mode. Other communication systems aboard the MH-53E Helicopter include the AN/ARC-174A(V)2 High Frequency Radio, AN/APX-72 Identification Friend or Foe Transponder, KIT-1A/TSEC Computer Transponder, TSEC/KY-58 Secure Voice Data Set, and the AN/AIC-14A Intercom. The AN/ARC-182(V) Radio is being replaced by the AN/ARC-210(V) ECCM Radio System, and the AN/ARC-174 is being replaced by the AN/ARC-220 to provide a data-link capability. The AN/ARC-210(V) provides normal and secure communication in the Amplitude Modulation and Frequency Modulation modes in both UHF and VHF bands. It is compatible with the TSEC/KY-58, has frequency hopping jam-resistant capabilities, and is interoperable with other Air Force and Army radio systems.

(4) Airborne Mine Countermeasures Navigation. The PNS is a navigation system that has been integrated with the AN/ARN-151 Receiver (which was part of the AN/ARN-151 provisions installation). It is used for precise mine field navigation during AMCM missions. The interim GPS functions are assumed by the R-2606/U GPS when integrated into the MH-53E Helicopter.

(5) Countermeasures Avionics. The AN/ALE-39 Countermeasures Dispensing System is mounted either internally or externally and is designed to dispense chaff, infrared decoy flares, or expendable jammers.

b. Airframe

(1) Enlarged Sponsons. The newly designed sponsons each contain two fuel tanks. This allows for a total fuel capacity of 3,200 gallons, which will increase both aircraft range and loiter time.

(2) Enlarged Aft Escape Hatches. Two enlarged window-type escape hatches in the aft cabin area permit easier egress for aircrew in an emergency situation.

(3) Single Point Suspension System Stowage. An A-frame suspension system is stowed in the forward position.

(4) Tow Boom. The Tow Boom is a fixed length four-inch diameter composite tubing that increases towing capacity. The boom has 32 degrees of movement in the pitch plane, and can yaw about the vertical axis to either side of the cabin. The forward end of the boom is set in sleeve bearings to allow operating motion for a load cell that monitors tow loads.

c. Power Plants. The power for the MH-53E Helicopter is currently furnished by three T64-GE-416 or -416A Engines. Upgraded engines are installed on 14 MH-53E Helicopters out of 44 aircraft in the fleet. This new engine, the T64-GE-419, increases engine performance and allows for contingency power during a One-Engine-Inoperative condition.

d. Gearbox. The Main Gearbox improvement program will provide greater reliability and an increased time between unscheduled removals. This redesign effort for fleet aircraft will be accomplished through an ECP.

e. Hydraulics. The MH-53E Helicopter has a modified CH-53E Hydraulic System consisting of an additional 3,000 pounds per square inch hydraulic supply system dedicated to AMCM.

f. Fuel System. In addition to the onboard fuel system, the MH-53E Helicopter has air-to-air and Helicopter-In-Flight Refueling (ship-to-air) pressure refueling systems, an inner tank fuel dump system, and a range extension fuel transfer system. The MH-53E Helicopter has enlarged fuel sponsons and uses a new fuel management system. There are three independent suction-pressure type fuel systems, one for each engine. The fuel systems are joined by a crossfeed system for maximum fuel utilization.

g. Electrical System. Due to the additional electronic equipment, the MH-53E Helicopter wiring system and circuit breaker panel have been redesigned.

h. Flight Station Design. The flight station design for the MH-53E Helicopter differs from the CH-53E in the gages, switches, and circuit breaker panels necessary for effective AMCM aircraft operations. Some modifications to the flight station layout will result from the Navigation and Communication System integration.

i. Airborne Mine Countermeasures Equipment. The MH-53E Helicopter is capable of using a variety of AMCM equipment described below. In addition, new AMCM equipment is currently in various stages of development. These include the AN/AQS-20 Sonar Detecting Set, Airborne Laser Mine Detection System (ALMDS), A/N37U-1 Mine Clearing Set for moored mines, and Airborne Mine Neutralization System (AMNSYS).

(1) AN/SPU-1/W. A single magnetized orange pipe mine sweeping system may be externally transported to and from the operating area by an appropriately configured MH-53E Helicopter. The MH-53E Helicopter is capable of towing a single unit or three units in tandem; however, streaming and recovering tandem units is accomplished from surface craft or shore ramp facilities.

(2) Mk-103 Mod 2. The Mk-103 Mod 2 is a mechanical mine sweeping system used for sweeping moored mines. This system is streamed, towed, and recovered by an appropriately configured MH-53E Helicopter. The system is a port and starboard diverted wire sweep that is armed with cutters. The sweep wires are diverted by otters and supported by marker floats.

(3) Mk-104 Mod 3. The Mk-104 Mod 3 acoustic mine sweeping gear generates a sound field capable of actuating acoustic mines. The acoustic gear is designed to be streamed, towed, and recovered by appropriately configured MH-53E Helicopters.

(4) Mk-105. The Mk-105 is a magnetic influence sweep device. The MH-53E Helicopter is not capable of carrying this device; therefore, it is streamed from a surface vessel or shore site. The helicopter acquires the tow cable and aircrews make the electrical and mechanical connections necessary to begin towing operations. When the mission is completed, the tow cable is transferred to another helicopter or back to personnel either aboard a surface vessel or ashore.

(5) Mk-106. The Mk-106 is a combination of acoustic and magnetic sweep formed by attaching the Mk-104 to the Mk-105. General operating procedures are identical to the Mk-105 procedures.

(6) AN/AQS-14. The AN/AQS-14 Sonar Detecting Set is a high resolution, dual side-looking, mine-hunting sonar that is used for detection, classification, and marking of mines and other underwater objects. The sonar's transducers are housed in an underwater towed vehicle while the information processing and display equipment and controls are located in the helicopter. The sonar components are divided into three major groups; underwater towed vehicle, electro-mechanical tow cable, and airborne electronic assembly. The AN/AQS-14 is streamed, towed, and recovered by the MH-53E Helicopter.

(7) AN/ALQ-141. The AN/ALQ-141 Acoustic Mine Countermeasures equipment is capable of actuating acoustic mines. The AN/ALQ-141 is composed of the towed sonar vehicle, the electro-mechanical tow cable, and the MH-53E mounted electronic controls. The AN/ALQ-141 is capable of being streamed, towed, and recovered by an appropriately configured MH-53E Helicopter.

(8) AN/AQS-20. The AN/AQS-20 Sonar Detecting Set is a high-resolution sonar that provides the fleet with the operational capability to hunt mines from air and surface craft. The AN/AQS-20 system was initiated to develop a high-speed reconnaissance and mine hunting sonar capable of searching large volumes of the sea for mine-like objects with a high probability of detection and classification and low probability of false alarms. This information is used for mine avoidance and neutralization.

(9) Airborne Laser Mine Detection System. The ALMDS is an airborne electro-optical system that is capable of rapid detection, classification, and localization of floating and moored mines located in relatively shallow water. With input from GPS, accurate navigation data is provided to determine target location. Operation of the ALMDS consists of firing a pulsed laser into the water and imaging any objects within the illuminated sector using a gated camera system.

(10) A/N37U-1 Mine Clearing Set, Moored Mines. The A/N37U-1 system consists of sweepwires which deploy Mk-17 Mod 1 cutters to sever mine moorings; electro-mechanical depressors which "fly" submerged in the water to maintain predetermined sweep depth; electro-mechanical otters, which function like depressors, but also separate the port and starboard sweepwire sections in order to maintain the proper sweep width; and one or more sections of Kevlar tow wire, depending on the desired sweep depth.

(11) Airborne Mine Neutralization System. The AMNSYS is a helicopter-deployed system capable of identifying and neutralizing close tethered, bottom, and moored mines. The AMNSYS hardware is a collection of modular units designed to integrate with the MH-53E Helicopter using certain mission interface removable and related mission equipment.

2. Physical Description. The MH-53E Helicopter has retained approximately 80 percent of the CH-53E configuration. The physical changes include the larger fuel sponsons and auxiliary AMCM equipment. The following are the dimensions for the MH-53E Helicopter:

Length: Overall 99 feet, 0.50 inch

Folded 71 feet, 0.02 inch

Width: Overall 25 feet

Folded 18 feet, 6 inches

Rotor diameter 79 feet

Height: Overall 28 feet, 4 inches

Folded 18 feet, 7 inches

3. New Development Introduction. The MH-53E Helicopter is a new production aircraft first introduced to the fleet in Fiscal Year (FY) 87. New production aircraft were delivered to the Naval Air Reserve beginning in November 1993.

The T64-GE-419 engine, AN/ARC-210(V), R-2606/U GPS, and AN/ARC-220 are being retrofitted into the MH-53E by field modification teams or by the Naval Aviation Depot (NAVAVNDEPOT) Cherry Point, North Carolina, during scheduled Standard Depot Level Maintenance (SDLM). The minor changes to the MH-53E Helicopter will also be introduced into the fleet by field modification teams or during SDLM. The main gearbox ECP will be retrofitted on an attrition basis.

H. CONCEPTS

1. Operational Concept. For AMCM missions, the MH-53E Helicopter is operated by a crew of seven consisting of pilot, copilot, safety observer, port and starboard AMCM equipment handlers, and port and starboard ramp operators.

The primary mission of HM-14 and HM-15 is minesweeping that is conducted independently or in conjunction with surface forces. Mine sweeping missions either use all squadron aircraft assets or deploy separate detachments, as stated in the Required Operational Capability and Projected Operational Environment (ROC/POE). Enlisted personnel from aviation maintenance ratings with Navy Enlisted Classifications (NECs) 8225 or 8226 perform aircrew duties. These squadrons also perform secondary missions such as transportation of passengers, equipment, and cargo, as well as VOD missions.

2. Maintenance Concept. The maintenance concept for the MH-53E is based on three levels of maintenance as stated in the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program Manual, OPNAVINST 4790.2 Series: organizational, intermediate, and depot. The MH-53E traditional maintenance concept is in the process of changing to a new methodology of aircraft maintenance. This new method is the IMC.

a. Integrated Maintenance Concept. IMC is achieved through the application of Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) principles that change the focus from a restoration maintenance program, i.e., Aircraft Service Period Adjustment (ASPA) and SDLM, to a prevention maintenance program. This concept will repackage all MH-53E Preventive Maintenance (PM) tasks to integrate organizational, intermediate, and depot level maintenance to be performed on-site between deployments. Organizational activities will continue to perform PM while deployed. However, the bulk of the inspections and PM tasks will be performed in port by integrated maintenance teams. The IMC team may include a combination of organic and contractor maintenance personnel. Over a specific period of time, they will perform SDLM-like tasks on aircraft, but with more frequency than the current eight to 11 year SDLM cycle. IMC will require depot artisans to be permanently assigned to MH-53E home sites, while others will deploy as required to other home sites (see table below).

The criteria for MH-53E helicopters entering IMC is that the aircraft must be in good material condition prior to acceptance, then IMC maintains that good material condition. During the transition from ASPA/SDLM/Maintenance Requirement Cards (MRC) to IMC, it is necessary to perform restoration maintenance on aircraft in poor material condition. This will be accomplished in the current SDLM program and the Service Tour Extension Process (STEP).

The STEP program is an in-service inspection and repair process that is designed to improve the material condition of the aircraft. The STEP requirement is focused on the restoration of the airframe structure, flight controls, fixed provisions, and wiring. It will also include an exterior paint condition assessment. The decision to strip and paint the aircraft will be made once the assessment is completed. Enhanced Material Condition Inspection (EMCI) is required for all aircraft undergoing STEP. The inspection will be used to gather data that will be analyzed to assess an Operation Service Period (OSP) for future STEP aircraft and will also support RCM analysis. The OSP of STEP aircraft is initially estimated to be six years but will be adjusted up or down depending on the results of the initial EMCI inspections.

b. Organizational. MH-53E Helicopter organizational level maintenance requirements are performed by the operating unit on a day-to-day basis in support of its own operation. These actions encompass inspections, servicing, handling, removing, and replacing Weapon Replaceable Assemblies (WRAs) and major aircraft components, and on-equipment corrective maintenance. Enlisted personnel from various aviation ratings with NECs 8303 or 8803 perform maintenance tasks.

(1) Preventive Maintenance. Preventive maintenance consists of periodic prescribed inspections and servicing of equipment accomplished on a phase, sortie, or hours of operation basis.

(2) Corrective Maintenance. MH-53E Helicopter organizational level maintenance personnel use Built-In Test (BIT) for primary fault isolation to a WRA. Faulty WRAs and components are removed and replaced using standard hand tools; some larger WRAs require the use of support equipment (i.e., engines and rotor blades). Faulty WRAs are forwarded to the Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Department (AIMD) for repair. Organizational level maintenance personnel may also be authorized, in approved publications, to initiate repairs such as blending of minor nicks on airframe structures or rotor blades.

In accordance with the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program (NAMP), AMCM maintenance technicians assigned to MH-53E squadrons are authorized to perform limited intermediate level maintenance on AMCM equipment when the squadron or detachment is deployed.

HM-14 and HM-15 are assigned Mobile Maintenance Facilities (MMFs) to support detachments. These MMFs include limited avionics and airframe repair, maintenance, administration, and supply facilities.

c. Intermediate. MH-53E Helicopter intermediate maintenance actions performed in support of organizational activities by AIMD host activities include test, repair, and modification of aeronautical equipment; calibration of support equipment; and disposition of assets from stricken aircraft. Repair of faulty WRAs is accomplished using appropriate test equipment. Intermediate maintenance tasks are performed by enlisted personnel from various aviation maintenance ratings with NECs 8391, 8891, 6424, 7323, 7212, 7105, 7144, 7603, 7615, 6609, 6605, 7225, and 9527.

Designated first-degree engine repair intermediate maintenance sites are:

    • AIMD Sigonella, Sicily
    • AIMD Norfolk, Virginia
    • Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron (MALS)-16 Miramar, California
    • MALS-24 Kaneohe, Hawaii
    • MALS-26 New River, North Carolina

d. Depot. MH-53E Helicopter depot maintenance actions are those requiring major overhaul or a complete rebuilding, manufacturing, or modification of parts, assemblies, subassemblies, and end items. The Navy Support Date (NSD) for the MH-53E Helicopter was September 1992. The NSDs for the T64-GE-419 engine and main gearbox ECP have not yet been determined, but will be included in future updates to this NTSP. Depot maintenance is performed at the following NAVAVNDEPOT locations:

Airframe NAVAVNDEPOT Cherry Point

Engine(s) NAVAVNDEPOT Cherry Point

Rotor Blades NAVAVNDEPOT Cherry Point

Components:

C/MH-53E common items NAVAVNDEPOT Cherry Point

MH-53E peculiar items Commercial (Sikorsky)

e. Interim Maintenance. NA

f. Life Cycle Maintenance Plan. The MH-53E Helicopter is on a three-year SDLM Cycle. At the end of a 36-month service period, an ASPA inspection is performed, and those aircraft found to be in satisfactory material condition will be granted a 12-month period extension, when another ASPA inspection is performed. This process continues until an aircraft fails the ASPA inspection and is inducted into standard rework. This will no longer be practiced when the IMC is fully established.

3. Manning Concept. Qualitative and quantitative manpower requirements for the MH-53E Helicopter are driven by total preventive and corrective maintenance requirements and the squadron ROC/POE. The squadron manpower is dictated by the deployment workload, which demands 24 hours of organizational level servicing during cyclic flight operations. The basic watch conditions consist of two sections, each responsible for a 12-hour period.

The integrated MH-53E squadrons are supported by a cadre of active duty and Training and Administration of the Naval Reserve (TAR) personnel and augmented by Selected Reserve (SELRES) personnel. New Activity Manpower Documents have been developed to identify the billet structure required to operate these combined squadrons. These changes do not affect the manning of MMFs. The table below lists the manpower requirements for HM-14 (AMD dated August 8, 1999) and HM-15 (AMD dated July 7, 1999).

4. Training Concept. MH-53E pilots and aircrew receive operational training at Airborne Mine Countermeasures Weapon Systems Training School (AWSTS), Norfolk, Virginia, and Marine Helicopter Training Squadron (HMT)-302, Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS), New River, North Carolina. Maintenance training for the MH-53E Helicopter is taught at Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) 1031, Naval Air Maintenance Training Unit (NAMTRAU) Norfolk, Virginia. The maintenance courses below will require minor changes to provide training on the new T-64-GE-419 Engines, AN/ARN-152 GPS, and AN/ARC-210(V) Radio System. MTU 1031 NAMTRAU Norfolk will begin teaching the new courses in April 2001. Future updates to this NTSP will reflect the revised training courses.

    • C-601-3444, T-64-GE-413/415/416 Engine First Degree Intermediate Maintenance
    • C-601-9446, MH-53E Power Plants, Rotors, and Related Systems Integrated Organizational Maintenance
    • C-602-9442B, MH-53 Electrical/Instrument and DAFCS (Career) Organizational Maintenance
    • C-102-9444, MH-53E Communication, Navigation, and Identification Systems (Career) Organizational Maintenance

a. Initial Training. Initial training for the MH-53E Helicopter has been successfully completed. MTU 1031 NAMTRAU Norfolk began the initial training for the new T-64-GE-419 engine in June 1999. No initial training is required for the AN/ARC-210 or the minor modifications to the MH-53E. The following table illustrates the T64-GE-419 engine installations by site.

For the HC-4 transition, Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation provided pilot, aircrew, and maintenance training on the differences between the MH-53E and the CH-53E Helicopters. Transition training began in March 1995 and was completed in April 1995 at NAS Sigonella Sicily. To accommodate transition training, the first MH-53E Helicopters arrived at NAS Sigonella in March 1995 (squadron transition began April 1995). MH-53E Helicopters in HC-4 are not equipped with AMCM equipment and continue to perform VOD missions as well as equipment, passenger, and cargo transportation.

b. Follow-on Training. MH-53E Helicopter follow-on training is conducted at AWSTS, HMT-302, and MTU 1031. This training is available to active duty and TAR students through the following training tracks and stand-alone courses:

(1) Operator. All MH-53E pilots receive ground training and aircraft familiarization at AWSTS followed by basic MH-53E flight training at HMT-302. Pilots and aircrew designated for AMCM activities then receive further mission and tactics training at AWSTS. MH-53E fleet support aircrew proceed directly to HC-4 following flight training. Student throughput for pilots in AMCM and VOD pipelines is based on training 40% Category 1 Fleet Replacement Pilots (FRP), 40% Category 2 FRP, 10% Category 3 Pilots, 10% Category 4 Pilots. Aircrew student throughput is based on training 60% Category 1 Fleet Replacement Aircrewman (FRAC) and 40% Category 3 FRAC in both AMCM and VOD training tracks. Pilot and aircrew courses are currently available through the pilot pipelines and aircrew training tracks listed below.

d. Training Pipelines. MH-53E pilot and aircrew pipelines are established. Organizational and intermediate level maintenance training tracks and courses listed under follow-on training are available in the OPNAV Aviation Training Management System (OATMS). Organizational and intermediate level maintenance training tracks and courses necessary to support the MH-53E training program are established and will be revised to incorporate changes to provide training on the new T-64-GE-419 Engines, AN/ARN-152 GPS, and AN/ARC-210(V) Radio System. Consequently, two other MH-53E Pilot Instructors Under Training courses for HMT-302 and AWSTS are being evaluated at this time. Updates to this NTSP will include the two Pilot Instructor courses for the MH-53E.

I. ONBOARD (IN-SERVICE) TRAINING

1. Proficiency or Other Training Organic to the New Development

a. Maintenance Training Improvement Program. MTIP is a training management tool that, through diagnostic testing, identifies individual knowledge deficiencies at the organizational and intermediate levels of maintenance. MTIP was implemented per OPNAVINST 4790.2 series. MTIP is being replaced by the Aviation Maintenance Continuum System (AMTCS). Current planning is for AMTCS to begin full implementation for fleet deployment in FY01.

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: Interactive Multimedia Instruction (IMI) 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 (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.

2. Personnel Qualification Standards. Aircrew Personnel Qualification Standards requirements are used as the onboard proficiency training methodology.

3. Other Onboard or In-Service Training Packages. NA

2. Program Documentation. The last approved Integrated Logistics Support Plan (ILSP) for the MH-53E Helicopter, document number AC-051D, is dated November 1990. The ILSP was updated on 15 October 1992.

3. Technical Data Plan. The organizational level maintenance manuals have been rewritten to integrate MH-53E and CH-53E Helicopters technical data into a single series of manuals, the A1-H53CE series. There are three exceptions that have not been combined with CH-53E data: MH-53E Naval Air Training and Operating Procedures Standardization (NATOPS), connector and wiring harness repair, and wire data. Sikorsky delivered the updated manuals to the Navy in April 1995 and they were available to the fleet in June 1995. The organizational level maintenance manuals will also be updated to include modifications to the MH-53E helicopter.

MH-53E Helicopter intermediate and depot level maintenance manuals are updated as changes are made to the helicopter. Sikorsky provided supplemental manuals on the T64-GE-419 engine on 30 September 1995. The updated organizational manual for the T64-GE-419 engine is available to the fleet.

4. Test Sets, Tools, and Test Equipment. A support equipment modification of the Number 2 Engine Adapters has been approved to accommodate the T64-GE-419 engine. If special equipment is required to support the main gearbox ECP, it will be included in future updates to this NTSP.

5. Repair Parts. The Material Support Date (MSD) has been achieved for the MH-53E Helicopter common and peculiar items. MSD for the T64-GE-419 was July 1996.

6. Human Systems Integration. NA

K. SCHEDULES

1. Installation and Delivery Schedules. Forty-four MH-53E helicopters have been delivered to the Navy. MH-53E deliveries to HM-14 and HM-15 (including Reserves) are completed.
