Smart T Technical Manual
The Technical Manual Management Program (TMMP) is the foundation to NSDSA/s products and services. It serves as a focused collection of policies and procedures on which all technical manual activities are based. NSDSA TMMP products and services include:
TDMIS is the web-based application technical manual life-cycle tracking system maintained by NSDSA and used worldwide. Access to TDMIS provides NAVSEA, SPAWAR and NAVAIR with complete technical manual management functionalities. TDMIS products and services include:
This database contains the current change and/or revision configuration information and historical information for each technical manual. Other technical manual information contained in the database includes the distribution list, equipment/Allowance Parts List applicability, individual hull applicability and supersede history. On-line access to digital technical manuals is available via TDMIS. Access and registration can be requested at _announcement.cfm
SMART-T is a web application tool that provides a fast, easy, and accurate means for defining tailored Technical Manual (TM) acquisition and development requirements that conform to current NAVSEA-approved specifications, standards, and NAVSEA Technical Manual Management Program policy. Generated products from SMART-T are the tailored Technical Manual Contract Requirements (TMCR) document and Technical Mnual SEATASK Requirement (TMSR) document which are intended for use in a Solicitation, Contract, Task/Delivery Order, or Government Agency tasking. The TMCRs/TMSRs are tailored to the specific level, purpose, and end use requirements for optimum cost-effective acquisition and follow-on maintenance of TMs.A TMCR is an acquisition document that is uniquely tailored to describe the format, style, and technical content requirements for a TM. It also includes general requirements for preparation and delivery of the TM and associated TM products like the TM Schedule and Status Report, TMQA Program Plan, Validation Plan, etc. A TMCR is used when the TM is to be acquired from and developed by a contractor. The TMCR becomes a part of the contract. The TMCR must be used in conjunction with associated Contract Data Requirements Lists (CDRLs) and a Statement of Work (SOW). The SOW defines objectives and task associated with the TM development effort and the CDRLs are required for use in identifying potential data requirements in a solicitation, and to order the selected data items from a contract.A TMSR (Technical Manual SEATASK Requirement) is essentially the same as a TMCR. The difference being that the TMSR is used when the Government is the manual preparing activity.SMART-T products and services include:
Technical Manual Deficiency Evaluation Report (TMDER)TMDERs are a critical technical manual feedback service for NAVSEA, managed at NSDSA. With access to TDMIS, TMDERs ensure that our fleet has the most current and accurate publications available. TMDER products and services include:
NSDSA and Related Support ServicesIn addition to providing TMMP support to NAVSEA and SPAWAR's Technical Manual Management Activities (TMMA), NSDSA provides training to TMMAs, contractors, NAVSEA and SPAWAR headquarters personnel, and fleet personnel. NSDSA is also heavily involved in the conversion of paper "legacy" technical manuals to various digital formats including portable document file (pdf), and IETM formats for computer display.NSDSA is also the principle activity providing TM initial outfitting support to the Navy for new ship construction, such as the MCM, CG 47, DDG 51, LPD 17 classes, and numerous Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Program. new ship construction programs and Security Assistance Program (SAP) turnovers of decommissioned ships to foreign governments.To learn more about NSDSA, visit the NSDSA website at _announcement.cfm. This site was developed to highlight areas of concern impacting the TMMP and TMMAs. It helps resolve TMMP issues while improving communications, consistency, and cohesion within the TMMA community across all commands.
I used to use the Now Your Talking book with the teaching manual, it was ok after I rewrote a good piece of the teaching manual to speed things up. I have not taught a class in 2 years and my stuff does not match there new book, so now would be a great time to change.
The tech manual is great! I am new to amateur radio, so this was all new to me. I started reading it last night, finished it this morning, took the test this evening, and only missed two on the Technicians license!
Thank you very much for these two study guides. I found them when I was working on my tech and it made it very easy. I had no problems with either test after going through the study guide. I recommend both study guides to anyone wanting to take the test. So far, everyone that read through them passed without any problems. Great manuals!
Downloaded your manual two weeks ago. Printed it and read it over and over. Took my General test today at Midland Tx Hamfest. I Passed !!!! Thanks for a great manual. Im good on QRZ take a look at the mobile on top.
High, thanks for these study guides, I was able to brush up and pick up my general. After 2 tries my wife was able to get her Tech! That is a big win for your writing style since she is not technically inclined unless the material is present in certain ways. She was able to engage with me on some topics as I studied for my General that she had just absorbed from your tech study guide. The document has Sticking power! I was ecstatic when this happened!
Our daughter took the Ham exams many years ago and passed so I had a little exposure to what it was and how it worked but I felt overwhelmed with using a manual. I was so happy to find your online guide which cuts out the extras and focuses on the exam questions! Thanks to you I passed the exam with only 4 wrong answers! Unfortunately I failed the General exam since I had not even thought I would pass the Tecnicians but I am surely going to be ordering your General guides!
Confirm that you understand the procedures for calibrating each of the instruments you use. If in doubt, review instructions in each instrument's user's manual and consult CTC if questions arise. In general, as long as the sound level readout is within 0.2 dB of the known source (the calibrator output), it is suggested that no calibration adjustments be made. If large fluctuations (greater than 1 dB) in the level occur, then either the calibrator or the instrument may have a problem.
Additionally, confirm that you know how to change or charge the battery in both the calibrator and the instruments. If in doubt, review instructions in each instrument's user's manual. A low battery is the number-one cause of equipment failing pre- and post-use calibration. Changing the battery will often bring the equipment back into an acceptable calibration range immediately, but a little practice is needed to change the battery quickly on some equipment. Most rechargeable batteries cannot be changed in the field so it is even more important their charge status is known and changed as necessary prior to instrument usage. Rechargeable batteries that can no longer be recharged must be replaced by CTC or the manufacturer. Be prepared, so that a low battery doesn't slow you down during an early morning calibration session (Figure 15).
Other types of SLMs also exist but do not meet ANSI requirements for the Type 2 or Type 1 designation. These meters, which are often modestly priced, can be useful pre-screening tools for employers seeking to identify noisy locations and track improvements during noise reduction efforts. They cannot, however, be used to document compliance with OSHA standards; only properly calibrated Type 2 or Type 1 meters can serve that purpose. For example, SLM applications are available for some smartphones. Such an application can give a rough estimate of the noise level in a particular location but may not be used to document compliance with OSHA standards.
Whether detachable or integrated into a sound level meter, an octave band analyzer receives its daily calibration in conjunction with the sound level meter with which it will be used. This might involve activating an additional setting during the daily meter calibration. Consult the user's manual for the equipment you will be using.
Some octave band analyzers can be set to automatic function (i.e., the instrument automatically checks the sound level of each frequency band and stores the results). Other instruments require the user to manually switch between the different frequency bands, recording each reading in sequence.
Many of the newer model dosimeters feature Bluetooth connectivity with smartphone applications. These applications let the user control certain dosimeter functions (e.g., start and stop) and allow for remote viewing of the real-time measurement data.
When monitoring is complete at the end of the day, follow standard procedures for recording results from the instruments. If necessary, consult the instrument user's manual or contact CTC for assistance. Dosimeter output usually includes the TWA (normalized to 8 hours), the LAVG or LEQ representing the average dose for the period monitored, the percent dose, and the maximum or peak reading. Do not neglect to perform the post-use calibration check on each instrument.
Because this engineering control will abate both silica and noise overexposures at the same time, an economic analysis is not necessary. This control, therefore, is both economically and technically feasible. 041b061a72
