UNREP PHONE/DISTANCE LINE

UNREP Phone/Distance Line

 

Problem: During an along-side Underway Replenishment, at least two crewmen are required to tend the current phone and distance lines.

Solution: Determine if commercial electronic devices such as hand-held laser range-finders (distance) and walkie-talkies (telephone) can operationally replace the current system.

Benefits

Estimated Navy Cost Avoidance:

This is an operational issue. There is no reduction in maintenance requirements.

 

Fleet Impact: 2 person reduction in watch station requirements by eliminating the need for line tenders during UNREPs.

 

 

 

Status: Ongoing

 

At sea testing was conducted in April, 2002. A final test report was issued in May. The Navy has requested that MTTC conduct additional at-sea testing to see if a "billboard-type" distance display will meet the needs. Planning is ongoing.

 

Applications:

All Surface Ships, including MSC.
