103.1 Define the following acronyms:
Radio Detection and Ranging. Used in aircraft to detect objects, and indicate their range and relative position.
Identification Friend or Foe. Allows a friendly aircraft to identify itself automatically, when interrogated, before approaching near enough to threaten the security of other naval units.
Automatic Direction Finding. Two identical ADF systems are installed on the aircraft. Each system receives signals from radio range stations, commercial AM stations, and low-frequency nondirectional navigation aid stations. Each system provides automatic direction-finding capability.
Tactical Air Navigation. Uses a bearing determining system to determine aircraft position and distance from a TACAN station up to 300 nautical miles to a selected facility or TACAN beacon. Primary navigation aid used by carrier-based aircraft.
Traffic Collision Avoidance System. Tells the exact position or location of other aircraft traffic.
Flight Management System. Tells your position, fuel burn, rate of fuel consumption, guides the automatic pilot, gives time to way point, fuel required and airspeed. Similar to the INS system but better due to better accuracy. INS is a backup for the FMS system.
Global Positioning System. Works in conjunction with a minimum of three global satellites to provide exact location in longitude, latitude and attitude. Accurate within 3 to 6 meters.
Inertial Navigation System. A navigation system that provides aviation and guidance data without reference to ground-based navigation aids. The INS provides steering guidance, capture, tracking, and leg transfer signals to the autopilot. It also provides steering commands to the flight directors and true heading, desired track and track deviation to the horizontal situation indicators.
Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range Station. A ground-based electronic navigation aid transmitting very high frequency navigation signals, 360 degrees in an azimuth, oriented from magnetic north. Voice transmissions may be made by the pilot and air traffic control facility.
Instrument Landing System. A precision approach system that provides alignment and descent guidance to the pilot.
Ground Proximity Warning System. Provides the pilot with a visual and aural warning of potentially hazardous flight paths relative to the terrain.
103.2 Discuss the importance of the Aircraft Static Dissipation system.
Static discharges are installed at the extremities of the airplane to dissipate static electricity with a minimum amount of radio interference. Static dischargers are located where discharge is likely to occur. These include the wing tips, elevator, horizontal stabilizer, vertical stabilizer and tailcone.
103.3 State the purpose of the C-9B/DC-9 Electrical Power Supply system as stated in the NATOPS Flight Manual.
103.4 Define thermal runaway as it pertains to aircraft batteries.
103.5 Discuss the procedures for detecting and handling thermal runaway.
103.6 Discuss the precautions concerning the use of radar.
b. Do not operate radar when ground personnel are within 21 feet of the radar antenna. The transmission of radio frequency energy could result in serious injury.
c. Do not operate the radar while the aircraft is in the hangar or with the antenna directed towards nearby large metal objects.
103.7 State the location of the Electronic Equipment compartment (E & E compartment).
103.8 Briefly discuss the Fire Detection system:
