103.5 Discuss the procedure for Loading COMSEC Material into the following RT-1523E, RT-1694, RT [ref. b, pp thru 5-32]
103 There are five tasks categorized as primary for the SINCGARS radio operator, manpack or vehicular and one preparation task for the ASIP These tasks enable the operator to meet all normal radio. communications requirements when the unit is in an operational situation
103 PRIMARY TASK 1: Required for use of single channel communications, participation in Cold Start net opening, use of CUE and ERF method of late net entry, and single channel frequency updates. Load COMSEC, FH Data, and Sync Time into RT Using ICOM Fill
103 PRIMARY TASK 2: Required for secure, frequency hopping communications, participation in Hot Start net opening, COMSEC/FH data updates, and without sync time, participation in Cold Start net opening. Perform Hot Start Net Opening
103 PRIMARY TASK 3: Required when the net has been down, for any reason and for any period of time, and is now to become operational at a prescribed time. Operators load their RTs with all required COMSEC keys, FH data, and sync time. At the prescribed time, they call the NCS and enter the net. The Hot Start procedure may also be used when an individual operator has been out of the net for any reason and wishes to re-enter without resort to the CUE and ERF method of late net entry.
103 PRIMARY TASK 4: Perform Passive Late Net Entry Required when an operator's radio sync time becomes greater than plus or minus 4 seconds, but not more than one minute, different from net sync time. The Passive Late Net Entry process enables an operator to re-enter the net without requiring action on the part of the NCS or other net operators.
103 PRIMARY TASK 5: Obtain SOI information from ANCD SOI information electronically stored in the ANCD replaces the paper SOI extract. The ANCD SOI program is used when Information on nets, suffixes, pyro/smoke, sign/countersign is needed.

Reinsert the transport safety pin, lay weapon on ground and notify chain of command
104 i. Safety [pp.14-32, 14-33] Take care in selecting positions for firing. Avoid areas that could cause you to fire through a screen of brush or trees. Impact with a twig or branch may deflect the rocket or cause it to detonate. You must try to obtain concealment, but not at the risk of safety.
104 To prevent the rocket from striking the foreground and causing serious injury to personnel, maintain the launcher in the firing position until the rocket has left the launcher. Avoid the blast of flame and ejected residue to the rear of the launcher. Remove flammable material, such as dry vegetation, from the backblast area. Keep personnel and ammunition clear of the rear danger area unless adequate shelter protection is provided. Sand or loose dirt in the backblast area can also reveal your position to the enemy. Do not fire rockets at temperatures below -40 F or above 140 F. Never fire a damaged weapon.

(3) Disadvantages: (a) Vulnerable to IED blast effects. (b) Difficult to command and control.
105.8 Identify and explain the elements of a convoy organization. [ref. e, pp 1-9 thru 1-16] Three Divisions March Column Composed of entire convoy Convoy Commander in charge Serial Column Limited to 20 vehicles Unit Column Limited to 10 vehicles or less
105 Convoy Commander –initiates, issues and enforces march orders supervises movement Serial Commander In charge of 20 vehicles, Supervises serial, Answers to Convoy Commander Advance Officer Precedes the column, Recons the route and selects alternate routes, Notifies proper authorities and Post traffic control personnel
105 Trail Officer Post warning flags, prevent interference, enforce convoy discipline, collects traffic control personnel Unit Commander Responsible for 10 units of CESE Maintenance Officer Rides at rear of convoy, Responsible for CESE maintenance Vehicle Commander –Usually a Petty Officer in charge of all vehicles carrying troops
105 Other Convoy Positions Pace Setter Usually a Petty Officer stationed in lead vehicle. Guides Personnel posted at critical intersections when on non-tactical convoys Escorts Military Police or other personnel for a non- tactical movement During tactical movements, the escorts may be armed guards, armed aircraft, infantry, armored units, or other units as required to protect or accompany the convoy
Describe vehicle convoy logistics and security requirements. [ref. e, pp.1-15 thru 2-4]
105 Control capabilities will be reduced at night. At the same time, the convoy’s vulnerability to ambush or harassing fire will be increased. Compromise between the need for both security and control. Increasing the size of security forces for night movement creates a greater noise and control problem. Decreasing the security forces permits better control and noise discipline. Carefully consider the requirements for security and control. Regardless of the choice, most vehicles, including escorts, will be road-bound. If an attack is encountered, the best reaction, as in daytime operations, is dependent upon the type of attack. Dispersion and extended intervals offer the best protection from air and artillery attacks. Rapidly clearing or evading the killing zone, along with a high volume of return fire, is the best protection from ambush. Night immediate-action drills should be rehearsed and all convoy members should receive refresher training in night security and night defensive techniques.

Describe the duties and responsibilities of the following Rapid Runway Repair (RRR) / Airfield Damage Repair (ADR) teams and state what type of equipment is necessary to perform their mission under Battle Damage Repair (BDR)/RRR. [ref. a, ch. III]
a. MOS [Annex C] After an air base attack, the base commander’s immediate problem is to launch and recover mission aircraft as soon as possible. The base engineer must recommend the best airfield surfaces to repair; i.e., those that require the least repair time but still provide adequate launch and recovery surfaces for mission aircraft. The launch and recovery surface selected for repair is called the minimum operating strip or MOS. The MOS is the area from which aircraft take off and land. When a MOS is combined with access taxiways from aircraft staging areas such as shelters and parking aprons, the entire area becomes the minimum airfield operating surface (MAOS). The length of the MOS will depend on the take-off or landing distance of the mission aircraft, whichever is greater.
106 b. DAT [Annex B] Bomb damage assessment activities are categorized into two distinct areas: airfield damage repair assessment and facility and utility damage assessment. In this manual, only airfield damage repair assessment is addressed. Airfield damage repair assessment includes evaluation of damage involving runway surfaces, taxiway surfaces, and other facilities that directly support aircraft operations. Since major recovery tasks cannot be started until damage assessment and MOS selection are completed, speed and accuracy during damage assessment are essential. The damage assessment teams (DATs) determine and report the location, types, and numbers of unexploded ordnance, and the location, types, and quantity of airfield pavement damage to the survival recovery center (SRC).
106 c. Crater/Spall [Annexes E, F] DEFINITION OF SPALL. A spall is damage that does not penetrate through the pavement surface to the underlying layers. Spalls may be up to 1.6 m (5 ft) diameter. REPAIR CONCEPT. Repair of a spall requires few procedures: squaring of the edges, cleaning out and removing debris, apply bonding agent if required, placing the fill material, finish the surface to provide a smooth structural bearing surface for aircraft traffic
106 Purpose. This section provides guidance on repair of spalls. Although spalls are relatively small, they can be numerous. Thus, planning for spall repairshould receive close attention. Concerns: Manufacturer’s instructions. Insure that the manufacturer’s instructions, or rules of common practice, are strictly followed. Bonding. The spall area must be prepared thoroughly. Sides should be vertical, loose material removed, and the repair surface clean or coated with a bonding agent if applicable. Bad bonding will result in the patch coming loose.
106 MATERIALS Conventional Cement/Grout. A conventional cement grout mixture similar to that indicated for Stone and Grout crater repair may be used in spall repair with pea gravel substituted for 76-mm (3-in.) stone as the aggregate. A rapid setting cement (proprietary) must be used to obtain a compressive strength of 10.3 MPa (1500 psi) in 4 hr. Consult the technical representatives for information on rapid setting cements.
106 Cold Mix Products. Tests conducted on a variety of cold mix patching products have met with limited success. Conventional cold mix asphalt is suitable for small repairs up to 0.61 m (2 ft) in diameter and 1.83 mm (6 in.) deep. Proprietary patching products can be used for both small and large spall repair; however, both types of materials tend to rut easily
106 Proprietary Products. Numerous commercial-off- the-shelf (COTS) materials are available. Some of these materials, particularly some rapid setting cements, have been tested and approved for DoD use while others have not. Before any material can be used on DoD airfields, it must be certified for use. Contact your service technical representative for the appropriate material and installation procedures for your particular application

108.1 Explain the use of the following: a. Seabee Construction Management (CBCM) program [ref. a, pp. 3-5] Construction management in the Seabees is based on the CPM. A major advantage to using the CPM method is training. CPM gives the new project supervisor exposure to the fundamentals of project management.
108 b. Crew Leader Handbook [ref a] Utilized for project planning, manpower projections.
108 c. NAVFAC P-405 [ref. b] The Seabee Planner's and Estimator's Handbook is a technical GUIDE for planning and estimating construction projects undertaken by the Naval Construction Force (NCF). The handbook provides information on estimating construction work elements and material quantities, including equipment and manpower requirements.
108.2 Discuss project scope. [ref. a, pp. 4-2, 15-17, 15-18] An overall view of what the project consists of accomplishing.
108.3 Discuss the following: [ref b] a. Direct labor [pp. 1-2] Direct labor includes all labor expended directly on assigned construction tasks, either in the field or in the shop, which contributes directly to the completion of the end product. Direct labor must be reported separately for each assigned construction task.
108 b. Indirect Labor [pp. 1-2] Indirect labor is labor required to support construction operations, but does not produce an end product itself.
108 c. Overhead Labor [pp. 1-2]. Overhead labor is not considered to be productive labor because it does not contribute directly or indirectly to the end product. It includes all labor that must be performed, regardless of the assigned mission.
108.4 Discuss the following: [ref.a] a. Delay Factor (DF)[pp. 2-8] Weather, manpower experience, equipment failure, supply shortages. Anything that can affect the time frame of the project
108 b. Production Efficiency Factor (PEF) [pp. 2-8] Direct Labor Efficiency factor is used to determine how much construction type production a battalion main body or detachment is achieving. It is easily determined from the Situation Report (SITREP). The overall battalion goal is 30 percent while main body averages are 20 percent. The formula is the fraction (written as percent) of actual direct labor divided by the total strength of the battalion. It is used where actual direct labor is the total labor charged to the project tasking, and is accounted for by the timekeepers at each job site. The total strength includes every enlisted person in the battalion, both Occupational Field 13 (OF-13) and non OF-13.
108 c. Manday Capability Equation (MC) [pp. 2-10] Manpower estimates consist of a list of the number of direct labor man-days required to complete the various activities of a specific projectA man-day is a unit of work performed by one man in 8 hours. Man-Day Capability: MC =DL x AF x WD x ME MC = Man-Day Capability, Man-Day Availability or Tasked Man- Days DL = Planned Direct Labor AF = Availability Factor WD = Available Workdays, Total Deployment Days less Sundays, holidays, turnover, training and off Saturdays. (Obtained from the deployment calender.) ME = Man-Day Equivalent, Planned work hours per day divided by 8 hours (one man-day). Example: a 9-hour workday can be Shown as 9/8 or
108.5 Discuss the following scheduling reports [ref. a] a. Level I [pp. 1-1] A Level I schedule lists all of the projects assigned and contains a broad schedule for each project. The schedule also includes a planned rate of accomplishment for the entire deployment. After the operations officer has balanced the estimated workload against the battalion’s manpower skills and equipment the Level I is submitted through the chain of command up to the Commanding Officer. The level I is updated by the Operations Officer.
108 b. Level II [pp. 1-1, 3-1] Used by company CDRs, Ops Project specific By master activity Bi-weekly bar chart Quick view of project progress Planned progress verses actual progress curve Sitrep input to S3 biweekly Sitrep input to brigade monthly
108 c. Level III [pp.1-1, 1-2, 3-5, 3-6] The following information is found on a Level III barchart. Construction Activities Start, finish and duration of each construction activity Critical activities Free Float
Discuss the Construction Project SITREP [ref a., pp. G-6] A message SITREP must be submitted monthly by the battalion within 3 workdays after the last day of each month. The report includes all tasked projects listed in increasing numerical sequence.
108 All SITREPs include a project status summary by location. This summary provides project WIP, remaining project man-days, and completion date percentage data. The status summary also contains a brief description of the work accomplished during the reporting period for each project
108.7 Discuss the importance of generating and maintaining complete and accurate Construction Activity Summary Sheets (CASS). [ref. a, p. 2-12] A typical Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) project might contain between 15 and 50 construction activities. Construction activity numbers are usually four digits. The first two digits identify the master activity and the second two digits show a specific construction activity within a master activity
108 Once the master activities have been broken into construction activities, you will need to use a CAS sheet (figs. 2-9 and 2-10) for each activity. In addition to the activity description and scheduled dates, all the required resources are shown on the front. Safety andQC requirements are on the back. The space at the bottom of the back page should be used for man- dayand duration calculations
108.9 Discuss Request for Information (RFI). [ref. a, pp. 12-4, 15-9, 15-72] A request for a clarification of the project scope or if unforeseen circumstances are encountered.
Discuss a project scope change. [ref. a, pp. 12-3, 12- 4] A change in the project due to unforeseen circumstances. May be an increase or decrease of scope.
Describe the purpose of the Naval Construction Force (NCF) Quality Control Program (QCP). [ref. c, p. 1-1] The purpose of the Quality Control Plan: Provide customer satisfaction with a product that fulfills the requirement for which it was intended Provide quality construction requiring no rework Provide craftsperson accountability for quality construction, and economical use of material within the Naval Construction Force.
State the purposes of the project safety plans contained in the project package. [ref. c, p. 2-40] The safety plan lists the hazards and corrective action to be taken from the back of the CAS sheets. The crew leader must ensure that the crew is properly trained and aware of all safety conditions present.
Describe the 3-phases of control for the Construction Quality Management Program (CQMP) [ref. c, pp thru 2-13] The main purpose of the quality control program (see 2ndNCB/3rdNCBINST C) is to prevent discrepancies where the quality of the workmanship and the materials fail to match the requirements in the plans and specifications. The responsibility for quality construction rests with the crew leader and the chain of command. The quality control division of the operations department as described in chapter 2 is responsible for conducting tests and inspections to ensure compliance with the plans and specifications. The crew leader must plan quality into the project. Quality planning avoids discrepancies found by the quality control (QC ) inspectors while performing their inspections

State and discuss the NMCB mission. [ref. b, p. 2-6]
The mission of the NMCB is to provide responsive military construction support to Navy, Marine Corps, and other forces in military operations; to construct and maintain base facilities; to repair battle-damaged facilities, and to conduct limited defensive operations as required by the circumstances of the deployment situation. It can also accomplish disaster control and recovery efforts when required.
201.2 Define the term MOB. [ref. c, pp. 7-1, 7-2] A quality or capability of military forces that permits them to move from place to place while retaining the ability to fulfill their primary mission
.3 Discuss the role of the NMCB in a MOB mission. [ref. a, encl. 7] The NMCB can function as an integral unit of the NCR, or operate independently. The NMCB can provide specialized, task-organized detachments up to one-half its organizational size to address specific support requirements. Nearly 85 percent of each NMCB can deploy as an air echelon via strategic airlift (approximately 60 C-141, 44 C-17)
201.4 Discuss the role of an NMCB in support of amphibious operations. [ref. e, p 2-6] Not all component Seabee organizations may be employed during amphibious operations. Normally employed under OPCON of the CATF, PHIBCBs and UCTs conduct construction missions that assist with the ship-to-shore movement of personnel, equipment, and supplies.
201 The NMCB can rapidly upgrade beach egress and road networks to staging and marshaling areas and other inland destinations, and construct expedient survivability structures(e.g., earthen berms) for Class III bulk liquids (AAFS) and Class V (A/W) storage.
201.5 Discuss battalion command and control within the Marine Air/Ground Task Force (MAGTF). [ref. b, p 2-7] Seabee units employed under OPCON of the MPF MAGTF commander (e.g., an NMCB) will be tasked in accordance with MAGTF construction priorities. However, those Seabee units employed in direct support of the NSE or other Navy component commande r(e.g., a PHIBCB) during MPF operations are not subject to MAGTF priorities.
201.6 Discuss battalion command and control during joint operations in peacetime and wartime [ref. d, pp. 6-8] A verbal or graphic statement, in broad outline, of a commander’s assumptions or intent in regard to an operation or series of operations. The concept of operations frequently is embodied in campaign plans and operation plans; in the latter case, particularly when the plans cover a series of connected operations to be carried out simultaneously or in succession. The concept is designed to give an overall picture f the operation. It is included primarily for additional clarity of purpose.
201.7 Describe tactical construction. [ref. a, encl. 7] Manpower for security should be figured into the project if necessary. Consideration should be given to direct labor wearing armor and Kevlar in man days efficiency factor
Describe the Seabees role in advanced base and camp construction. [ref. c, p. 12-2] NMCB’s construct base facilities in support of the Navy, Marine Corps, and other armed services engaged in military operations. NMCBs are rapidly deployable, self-sustaining units with the exception of Class IV construction materials that are provided by supported commander, and are capable of performing vertical, horizontal and specialized construction.
201.9 Discuss battalion operations during a peacetime deployment. [ref. c, p. 12-3] When forward deployed during peacetime, the active NMCBs perform project construction (primarily for skills training and readiness) in support of Fleet CINCs under the coordination and project management of the NCBs.
11 Discuss battalion administrative and operational control in homeport. [ref. d, pp. 7, 8] NCRs are under the OPCON/ADCON of their NCBs and exercise OPCON/ADCON over subordinate NCF units. In support of forward deployed units in the European theater, CINCUSNAVEUR exercises OPCON over the deployed NMCB in Europe via SECOND NCB and TWENTY-SECOND NCR, both of which remain in CONUS for peacetime operations and coordination of NCF units in that theater
Discuss NMCB administrative control when forward deployed. [ref. d, p. 8] Forward deployment requirements for NMCBs are specified in reference (i). Rotation of NMCBs shall be planned by both NCBs and the Fleet CINCs, and approved by the CNO (N44). When not deployed, NMCBs are under the ADCON/OPCON of the NCBs reporting via their NCRs. When forward deployed, NMCBs shall be under the OPCON of the AOR theater CINC via the Navy service component commander serving that CINC and OPCON NCR Forward deployed NMCBs remain under the ADCON of the NCBs reporting via the NCRs. NMCBs may be assigned OPCON to a Marine Expeditionary Force (MEF) or a Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF)
Discuss NMCB operational control within the MAGTF and a Naval Construction Regiment (NCR) [ref b, p. 2-7] [ref. e, p 2-7] Transferable command authority that may be exercised by commanders at any echelon at or below the level of combatant command. Operational control is inherent in combatant Command (command authority).
201 Operational control includes authoritative direction over all aspects of military operations and joint training necessary to accomplish missions assigned to the command. Operational control should be exercised through the commanders of subordinate organizations.
