Multiple Action OPNAV XRAY Reports
Multiple OPNAV XRAY report actions may be
reported with one message as long as the message
involves one controlling and one reporting custodian.
The heading of a message that reports multiple actions
is the same as the headings for a message that reports
single actions. Items for the first action are arranged in
a vertical column on the left side of the page. The
second action, also arranged vertically, falls to the right
of the first as a second column. Additional actions are
arranged likewise. Multiple transactions are made only
when more than one aircraft is involved, and may not
be submitted on the same aircraft. Figure 7-2 illustrates
a multiple action OPNAV XRAY message as the
message would be prepared by an AZ for transmission.
The first action reports that BUNO 114929 is
undergoing special rework for modification. The
second action reports that BUNO 113841 is also
undergoing special rework. The revised estimated
completion date is also reported.
Whenever a reporting custodian moves from one
location to another, whether the move is aboard ship or
to another station, that fact must be reported by
OPNAV XRAY message to the controlling custodian
with an information copy to the CNO and
COMNAVAIRSYSCOM. The heading and subject
line are the same as for a routine OPNAV XRAY
message. Refer to OPNAVINST 5442.2 for specific
remarks required for change of location OPNAV
