Table 17-11.ALM Leading Serialized Components
Fleet units must SLIT-report onloads from or off-
loads to CONUS shore activities. They must also report
intership transfers (including FFT material involving a
shore activity), expenditures, and Condition code changes
of all-up-rounds (AURs) and components. SLIT reporting
is required of both the receiving and issuing ships when
an intership transfer is involved The receiving/issuing
ship must address each other for information on ATR
message submissions. This requirement enables each
ship to verify the transfers, correct discrepancies, and
submit appropriate modified ATRs to NOC.
All items that require SLIT reporting are contained
in TW010-AA-ORD-010/NAVAIR 11-1-116A, and are
identified by material control codes B, C, and E. A few
of the most common SLIT-reported items are discussed
in the following paragraphs.
AIR-LAUNCH MISSILES. Air-launch missiles
(ALMs) require SLIT tracking; consequently, whenever
a reportable transaction occurs, appropriate entries must
be made in paragraph 7 of the ATR
The serial number of an ALM is determined by the
serial number of the leading serialized component of the
missile and should be reported, regardless of the ALM
configuration. The tracking of these serial numbers
should be reported from individual unassembled
components up to an AUR. The leading serialized
components of ALMs are shown in table 17-11.
In addition to the missile serial number, the
maintenance due date (MDD) and the Type
Maintenance Due code (TMDC) must be reported when
a missile is removed from deep stowage to a
ready-service locker, or when a missile has been
To indicate either condition, a
transaction report should be submitted initially for each
removal or captive flight of a missile. The report should
show the missile serial number, MDD, and TMDC.
After the initial report, it is unnecessary to make
subsequent reports of deep-stowage removals or captive
flights on a specific missile.
SURFACE MISSILES. The issuing, receiving,
stowing, and reporting of surface missiles are the
responsibility of the weapons department aboard
aircraft carriers. Surface missiles aboard aircraft
carriers are part of the ships point defense system.
Surface missiles are SLIT-reportable items, and are
reported in the same manner as discussed for ALMs.
