Abstract:

This is a report of COMOPTEVFORs follow-on operational test and evaluation OT-IIB of the NAVSTAR Global Positioning System GPS User Equipment UE as installed in the P-3C update III aircraft, performed under CNO Project 190-4. The purpose of OT-IIIB was to determine the operational effectiveness and suitability of the GPS UE as installed in the P-3C update III, to initiate tactics development to support promulgation of an OPTEVFOR Tactics Guide OTG, and to support a recommendation regarding extension application EOA to platforms with similar Type 3 installations. The GPS UE, as installed in the p-3C update III aircraft is determined to be operationally effective and not operationally suitable. Approval for fleet introduction in the P-3C of the GPS UE is recommended following correction of the Major interoperability, human factor and documentation deficiencies see par. 8c and corrections verified to CNOs satisfaction.
