95 105 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 movementDuring tactical movements, the escorts may be armed guards, armed aircraft, infantry,armored units, or other units as required to protect or accompany the convoy
96 105.10 Describe vehicle convoy logistics and security requirements. [ref. e, pp.1-15 thru 2-4]
97 105Control 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.

99 106106.1 Describe the duties and responsibilities of the following Rapid Runway Repair(RRR) / Airfield Damage Repair (ADR) teams and state what type of equipment isnecessary to perform their mission under Battle Damage Repair (BDR)/RRR. [ref. a, ch. III]
101 106a. 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 iscalled 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 theminimum 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.
102 106b. 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).
103 106 c. Crater/Spall [Annexes E, F] DEFINITION OF SPALL. A spall is damage that does not penetrate throughthe 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 ofthe edges, cleaning out and removing debris, apply bonding agent if required, placingthe fill material, finish the surface to provide a smooth structural bearing surface foraircraft traffic
104 106Purpose. This section provides guidance on repair of spalls. Althoughspalls 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.
105 106MATERIALSConventional Cement/Grout. A conventional cement grout mixture similar tothat indicated for Stone and Grout crater repair may be used in spall repair with peagravel 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) in4 hr. Consult the technical representatives for information on rapid setting cements.
106 106Cold Mix Products. Tests conducted on a variety of cold mix patching products have met with limited success. Conventional cold mix asphalt is suitable forsmall 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
107 106Proprietary Products. Numerous commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) materials are available. Some of these materials, particularly some rapid settingcements, 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

148 108c. NAVFAC P-405 [ref. b]The Seabee Planner's and Estimator's Handbook is a technical GUIDE for planningand estimating construction projects undertaken by the Naval Construction Force (NCF).The handbook provides information on estimating construction work elements and materialquantities, including equipment and manpower requirements.
149 108 .2 Discuss project scope. [ref. a, pp. 4-2, 15-17, 15-18] An overall view of what the project consists of accomplishing.
150 108 .3 Discuss the following: [ref b] a. Direct labor [pp. 1-2] 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.
151 108b. Indirect Labor [pp. 1-2]Indirect labor is labor required to support construction operations, but does not produce an end product itself.
152 108c. 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.
153 108 .4 Discuss the following: [ref.a] a. Delay Factor (DF)[pp. 2-8] .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
154 108 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, andis 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.
155 108 c. Manday Capability Equation (MC) [pp. 2-10] Manpower estimates consist of a list of the number of direct labor man-daysrequired 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 MEMC = Man-Day Capability, Man-Day Availability or Tasked Man-DaysDL = Planned Direct LaborAF = Availability FactorWD = Available Workdays, Total Deployment Days less Sundays,holidays, turnover, training and off Saturdays. (Obtained fromthe deployment calender.)ME = Man-Day Equivalent, Planned work hours per day divided by8 hours (one man-day). Example: a 9-hour workday can beShown as 9/8 or 1.125.
156 108 .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 .

159 108 108.6 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.
160 108All 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
161 108.7 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
162 108Once 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
163 108.9 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.
164 108 .10 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.
165 108.11 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 intendedProvide quality construction requiring no reworkProvide craftsperson accountability for quality construction, and economical use of material within the Naval Construction Force.
166 108.12 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.
167 108.13 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

169 201State and discuss the NMCB mission. [ref. b, p. 2-6]
171 201The 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-damagedfacilities, 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.
172 201 .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
174 201.3 Discuss the role of the NMCB in a MOB mission. [ref. a, encl. 7]The NMCB can function as an integralunit 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)
175 201.4 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 constructionmissions that assist with the ship-to-shore movement of personnel, equipment, and supplies.
176 201The 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.
177 201.5 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.
178 201.6 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.
179 201 .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
180 201Describe 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.
181 201.9 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.
183 20111 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
184 20112 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)
185 201.13 Discuss NMCB operational control within the MAGTF and a Naval ConstructionRegiment (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).
186 201Operational 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.
