used, they should be left blank. The optional Advice
codes are listed in table 17-6.
DATA BLOCKS L THROUGH V (REMARKS).
Normally, requisitions should not contain remarks.
Enter remarks only when absolutely necessary to
identify acceptable substitutes, clarify delivery, or to
indicate the planned firing month of training missiles.
Avoid including superfluous data that can be coded
within the MILSTRIP format. For example, by placing
the UIC of the activity where the material is to be
delivered in the supplementary address, by using Signal
code J, and by providing an RDD, the requisitioner can
encode where and when delivery should be made and
eliminate any remarks. If remarks are used, you should
ensure that a document identifier of AOE or A05 is used.
Message Requisitioning by DAAS
Ammunition MILSTRIP requisitions are prepared
by fleet units in a specially coded standard format and
transmitted by message directly to DAAS, Dayton,
Ohio. DAAS redirects each requisition on the message
to the activity indicated by the routing identifier. DAAS
redirects the message by way of the automatic digital
network (AUTODIN) system. The activity receiving
the message takes the necessary action to fill or refer the
requisition, as appropriate. Referrals and retransmittals
are done by AUTODIN. The AUTODIN system
provides the addresses with a punched card for each
document in the originators message. This process
alleviates the need for message handling or
keypunching by the addressee.
Table 17-6.Advice Codes
Unclassified MILSTRIP requisitions without
remarks are the only ammunition requisitions that
qualify for DAAS transmission. As mentioned earlier,
remarks can normally be avoided by careful coding of
When necessary, remarks can be
transmitted in a separate (non-DAAS) message. The
following types of requisitions are NOT submitted by
1. Requisitions that require remarks
2. Requisitions for a CV loadout where the CV is
loaded by an AE/AOE
3. Requisitions submitted to COMNAVAIRSYS-
COM (for 8E COG material) or to COMNAVSEASYS-
COM (for 8T or 8S COG material)
4. Requisitions with a classification of
CONFIDENTIAL or higher
Requisitions that qualify for DAAS transmission
are discussed in the following paragraphs.
FORMS. NAVSUPForms 1353 and 1353-1, or a
locally prepared MILSTRIP message transmittal work
sheet, should be used to submit requisitions by DAAS.
The sample worksheet shown in figure 17-10 is

17-10. You should remember that this chapter deals
specifically with units under the jurisdiction of
CINCLANTFLT, and that some of the information is
different for units under CINCPACFLT jurisdiction.
However, the procedures for preparation of a NAVSUP

You should route the unclassified message for
action to DAAS DAYTON OH, with information copies
to CINCLANTFLT NORFOLK VA, the immediate
operational commander, and the activity where the
material is to be delivered (the supplementary address
activity). The subject line should be AMMO
MILSTRIP REQN. To be accepted for transmission by
DAAS, each line can contain a maximum of 66
characters of data in the following sequence:
Document Identifier: Enter A0A or A01
when requisitioning with an NSN.
Enter A0D or A04 when requisitioning
with a DODAC or an NALC.
Routing Identifier: Enter the routing
identifier of the activity that is to receive
the requisition for action. Routing
identifiers are contained in the
