PURPOSE:
To provide Amphibious Air Traffic Control Center/Helicopter Direction Center (AATCC/HDC) Teams the refresher training necessary to gain/retain overall team performance and individual skill proficiency in performing at sea AATCC watch station/system operation functions.
SCOPE:
Course may include, but is not limited to, a review of LHA/LPH/LHD NATOPS, AOCC/HDC equipment and watchstations procedures, and the following Amphibious Warfare Exercises listed in the FXP 5 (rev A) "Amphibous Warfare (AMW) and the "Joint Fleet Readiness and Training Manual" (COMNAVSURFLANT INST 3502.20/COMNAVSURFPACINST 3502.20): AMW-7-1 (Instrument Approach Procedures for Aircraft Recovery), AMW-14-1 (Control of Assault Helicopters by HDC/CIC), and the AMW-15-1 (Control of Assualt Helicopter by HDC/CIC in an EMCON environment). The course will begin with an indoctrination and voice enrollment on the Voice Activated Advanced Shipboard Air Traffic Control Training System (ASATS) and is followed by a brief description of AATC DAIR functions. after the team is familiar with the ASATS device and AATC DAIR, problem exercises will be run from scenarios which simulate conditions of at-sea air operations. Exercises may include recoveries of helicopters only, or Helicopter/V/STOL mixed. TACAN Marshal 1, 2, 3, and NDB/TACAN Overhead approaches along with random vector recoveries are mixed with ship turns, closed/foul deck lights, and Case I, II, or III Departure and Recoveries. Additionally equipment degradation may also be simulated, such as DAIR/Radar malfunction, loss of communications, etc.Gunfire reporting may also be simulated and allows the supervisor maximum latitude in changing the approach/retirement routes according to the tactical situation. Specific areas and depth of training will be based upon AOCC/HDC supervisor/officer, PHIBRON, Type Commander inputs, and results of pretest (knowledge/performance), and NATTC staff personnel observations.
Training progress is measured by administration of an applicable NATOPS exam and AOCC/HDC team performance on watchstations during simulated Amphibious Warfare Exercises.
