Record the time of launches and landings.
Record/update fuel states.
Record pertinent remarks such as bolter, waveoff (foul deck
and technique), hung/unexpended ordnance, divert/bingo,
and any other aircraft information that may/will affect launch
and recovery operations.
Update aircraft lineup information during Case III operations.
Prior to the launch of each event, record information from Air
Plan on the status board including event numbers, first digit
of aircraft side numbers (determined from squadron
assignments), missions, and remarks (e.g., spare, yo-yo,
alert). Pilot names and the last two digits of aircraft side
numbers are recorded when received from the squadron
ready rooms or FDC. During launch operations, the launch
time and flight profile is recorded for each aircraft when
received from PriFly.
Prior to recovery operations, information is recorded
regarding aircraft fuel states, radio channel assignments,
and remarks as received from CDC/CCA. After the
commencement of recovery operations a flight profile is
maintained (e.g., trap, bolter, waveoff. divert/bingo, etc.) and
on-deck times received from PriFly. During launch and
recovery operations, the status board keepers coordinate
with PriFly and CCA, as required to ensure the accuracy of
status board information.
Maintain the Land/Launch Record during flight operations.
Monitor the status boards during flight operations to ensure
that they are accurate and complete.
Compare information with PriFly to ensure the accuracy of
the trap count at the completion of each launch and
ISIS Operators will fulfill duties as Status Board Keepers.
