Completion of compass calibration. One of
two entries is required. The correct entry
depends on whether the compass is in or out
of limits (see OPNAVINST 4790.2 for
specific statement). As a minimum, record
the type of compass calibrated, method of
calibration, date compass was calibrated,
and location where calibrated.
Acceptance or transfer. An entry should be
made that states that flight hours on the
Monthly Flight Summary page and
operating hours on the Equipment Operating
Record have been verified to be correct.
A minimum of 2 years of data should be
maintained in the Miscellaneous/History record.
OPNAVINST 4790.2 contains a complete listing of
situations that require a Miscellaneous/History page
entry. OPNAVINST 4790.2 also includes the specific
wording to be used for each situation.
Q20. An entry on the Miscellaneous/History record of
the aircraft logbook should be made upon receipt
and transfer of an aircraft that states that what
two records have been verified to be correct?
RECORD (OPNAV 4790/136A)
This form is used in three recordsthe aircraft
logbook, AESR, and MSR. The form is used to
document preservation, represervation, and
depreservation on aircraft or equipment. Entries are
also required on uninstalled equipment if preservation
MRCs or Preservation of Naval Aircraft, NAVAIR
15-01-500, specifies a preservation requirement.
Aircraft preservation requirements, including type and
length, can be found in applicable MRCs. Figure 6-10
shows a Preservation/Depreservation Record.
The Preservation/Depreservation Record is
self-explanatory. Information required to make entries
on this record is obtained from the MAF.
INSTALLED EXPLOSIVE DEVICE RECORD
The Installed Explosive Device Record form
contains a record of all explosive devices currently
installed in the aircraft. These include, but are not
limited to, lap belt cartridges, initiators, canopy release,
and seat ejection cartridges or devices. This form is
shown in figure 6-11.
Figure 6-11 shows an Installed Explosive Device
Record for an activity that uses the Survival Equipment
Asset Tracking System/Increased Capabilities System
(SEATS/ICAPS). SEATS/ICAPS is an automated
system designed to standardize the management and
Cartridge-Actuated Devices (CADS). SEATS is a
database management system that provides users with
an accurate means to process, store, and retrieve
information on Aviation Life Support System (ALSS)
items, such as parachutes. The SEATS program will be
discussed later in this chapter. ICAPS is an database
management system that provides users with a quick
and accurate means to process, store, and retrieve
information on cartridges, CADS, and aircrew escape
propulsion systems (AEPS).
The ICAPS subsystem give users an automated
method to perform the followings:
Manage CADs and AEPS assets
Generate reports and schedule workloads
Maintain CADs and AEPS maintenance
Print computer-generated Installed Ex-
plosive Device Record (OPNAV Form
The program also lists all CADS used Navy-wide,
and includes a part number and Department of Defense
Identification Code (DODIC) index for each. In
addition, the system automatically computes CAD
service life expiration dates when the lot number and
container open date data blocks have been completed.
All entries on the Installed Explosive Device
Record are self-explanatory except the expiration date.
The procedures used to compute expiration dates are
outlined in General Use Cartridges and Cartridges
Actuated Devices (CADS) For Aircraft and Unique
Aircraft Systems, NAVAIR 11-100.1.1, Aircrew
Escape Propulsion System (AEPs) Device, NAVAIR
11-85-1, and Cartridges and Cartridge Actuated
Devices for Bomb/Racks/Launchers, Bomb Dummy
Units and Airborne Missile Systems (CADs), NAVAIR
When installed explosive devices have extensions
granted, you should update the ICAPS module database
and print a new Installed Explosive Device Record. The
authority that granted the extension (such as the
message date-time group [DTG] and originator and/or
