ILS SUPPORT TO THE PROGRAM
· Coordinate with FST as they update the shipboard PMS requirements for the UCARS/GCS.
· Spare GCS/UCARS items maintained in the PUK. Aboard LCS, the maintenance will be performed by ship's company, therefore the spare GCS/UCARS items may be stocked separate from the A/V PUK. If this becomes the case, you'll have to tailor the listing for LCS.
Government Furnished Equipment management
· Identify assets for each hull with Ship Integration IPTLs.
· Coordinate pick up & shipment of equipment with Pax River Supply.
· Forward tracking number to G. Lynn.
· Update asset tracker to meet requirements
· Coordinate with IPTLs unfilled requirements for GFE.
PRE-INSTALL (all ships)
· Ship coordination
o Meet with ship to answer questions about Fire Scout footprint, PUK size/storage requirements.
o Walk the ship with planning yard engineers & AIT to determine configuration differences between current & previous installations.
o Meet with AIT to determine pier side support required.
o (FFG only) Inventory STIR equipment during the initial ship check. Communicate inventory with AIR 4.5.10 & FMS. Some equipment will be shipped to FMS for further use, the rest will have to be disposed of at the local DRMO. Examples of an 1149 to FMS & 1348 to DRMO are included in the binder.
o Insure you have an accurate inventory of the equipment set aside for the installation. Provide material support to the team testing the equipment, specifics below. Attend the load out & ensure all equipment required is shipped & accompanied with an 1149.
o Maintain liaison between install team & local FRC to schedule AESS load band test. Often replacement material will languish in the local supply department's delivery process. Maintain close tracking on these items & expedite delivery to the INCO team as to not impact schedule.
o Due to the shortage of GCS's, we provided installation aid fixtures to the shipbuilder to facilitate the routing of cables. These fixtures include legacy and next generation (TFA) Linux upgrade consoles.
o An LCS PUK list will need to be finalized utilizing the FFG PUK listing. Currently, aboard the FFG, the shipboard equipment is maintained by a CLS maintainer.
· Air Vehicle (Air vehicle emulator) movement
o Communicate the "Air Vehicle link checks" date early ~90 days prior. A/V's are in high demand & you'll need to get your demand signal in early. Maintain tabs on the installation, either in person or via the daily reports- if the schedule slips, you'll have to make adjustments to the A/V delivery timeline. Insure the A/V configuration meets the needs of the INCO team. You'll need personnel to support the A/V while it is on the ship.
o Coordination and delivery of MPEDD and support equipment to include tools and radios(CCI)
o Establish communications with truck driver to establish delivery time, insure crane service is set up & personnel are available to off load the A/V from the truck & onto the ship. Meet the driver at security & escort to the ship.
· Squadron coordination
o Communicate with the DET CPO early for delivery of their SE/Tools. Maintain liaison with the FST & establish a delivery schedule, note any shortages or cal/load test requirements & aid the det in bringing any issues to closure.
o Address issues with the contents of the PUK. You'll need to maintain close communications with the servicing ASD, ship's supply, & the AVDET to answer questions related to inventory, configuration, stowage requirements, & EDD's for outstanding requisitions.
o Transfer OSI laptops to the ship via 1149. Coordinate GCS MPEDD delivery with AVDET's SE. Transfer ancillary equipment to ship/AVDET as applicable via 1149.
o Enter Fire Scout shipboard installation ILS information into the NDE data base. Submit for approval. Follow the cert through the approval process. Report the approval to the IPT. Download a copy of the approved cert & provide to AIT Government oversight (AIR 4.5.10 representative) for inclusion into the RMMCO check in binder.
o Transfer of CCI requires 1 month advance notice. The SCS CCI is normally transferred from the CCI custodian at Webster Field to the applicable ship's account.
· Spares/Parts management
o If an item fails during testing, you'll have to insure that the replacement gets ordered & retrograde turned in. Insure delivery date for ordered equipment meets the installation schedule. Expedite as required.
o Move retrograde material from the ship to the local ASD. Insure you provide a filled out 1149 (6 copies) along with the equipment to be returned. In some instances, this equipment can ride back to Webster Field on the truck returning the A/V, every situation is a little different.
o While the install is in work, the lead engineer will produce a daily report, scrub that report for material shortages & communicate the plan for filling those shortages. Additionally, they may contact you directly. Track delivery to meet installation schedule. Expedite as necessary.
o Insure NRFI repairables received from installation team are properly turned in to NGC for induction into the repair chain via 1149 (Katie). Obtain failure information from install team & insure that information is passed to NGC. Often, you will find zero or limited spares on hand in supply to meet the shortage, in these instances you'll have to expedite the repair induction & track it to delivery.
o Maintain current location of GCS/UCARS/TCDL etc. As the equipment changes location, update the tracker.
o Maintain daily communications with the AIT/INCO supervisor to determine future crane lift/forklift/transportation requirements. Schedule as appropriate.
RETURN FROM DEPLOYMENT
· Prior to the ship's return from deployment, communicate with the NGC FSR to remove all system hard drives, inventory with serial numbers, & turn over to ship's COMM for stowage.
· Prior to the ship's return from deployment, communicate with the NGC FSR to gather OSI laptops, inventory with serial numbers, & turn over to ship's COMM for stowage.
· Instruct the NGC FST to remove installed CCI (4 radios & TCDL CCI) & return to ship's CCI vault. These items are in the ship's account & will have to be transferred if the GCS is being removed from the ship.
· 1 month prior to the ship's return, communicate with DET CPO WRT offload intentions. Coordinate trucks for A/V movement, FST personnel for SE inventory & transfer, talk with servicing ASD about PUK off-load.
· Meet with the NGC FSR & go over list of items to be transferred/stowed aboard the ship, make sure you know where everything is stowed. You'll have to make sure it comes off the ship with the rest of the GCS. Meet with the DET CPO to finalize plans for off-load & A/V shipment.
· Walk the ship to insure all SE/Tools/Spares/HAZMAT/Retrograde have been offloaded. Our inventory isn't deep enough to absorb lost items. Many times in the past items have been left aboard.
· Coordinate the pick-up & shipment of the AVDET's SE to Cherry Point
· Package & ship hard drives to Webster Field IAW classified material shipping procedures.
· Maintain communications with removal team to determine pier side support requirements & schedule. Normally the removal requires crane service, Riggers, a forklift, & specialized pallets. Insure packaging materials are available & each item is packaged prior to loading aboard the transport vehicle for return to Webster Field. Fill out 1149 & provide to the driver.
· Insure that in addition to the GCS/UCARS/TCDL, that the ancillary laptops, monitors, etc are loaded aboard the transport vehicle with the rest of the removed equipment.
· Insure an accurate inventory of the removed equipment. Generally the equipment is returned to the lab at Webster Field & items in the lab need to be arranged to allow for the extra equipment.
· Upon completion of the Fire Scout removal there will be 3-4 tri-walls of scrap materials that require disposal. If in Mayport- coordinate the disposal of these items with Mayport DRMO. If in Norfolk- return these materials to Webster Field.
