Flashcards in CDC Vol 1 Deck (127)
What is the CFETP used for?
To plan, develop, manage, and conduct an effective and efficient career field training program
Name the four types of training on which CFETP focuses:
-Initial skill training
-Upgrade training (UGT)
-Qualification training (QT) *actual hands on training*
-Continuation training (CT)
What type of training does the formal resident course at Keesler AFB provide?
Initial skill training
Name the Air Force publication that serves as a training contract between AETC and our 1C5X1 functional managers. And what section of the CFETP can it be found?
-Specialty training standard (STS)
-Part II, Section A
What official guide contains an overview of all the different career fields and establishes the occupational structure of the AF enlisted force?
The Air Force enlisted classification directory (AFECD)
List the AFSC skill levels and their names: *6
What is added to the beginning of an AFSC to identify an ability, skill, special qualification, or system? What is added to the end of the AFSC that identifies specific equipment, functions or positions?
What is a three-character code that identifies special experience and training not otherwise identified within the military personnel data system?
Special experience identifier (SEI)
State the 5 progressive readiness conditions, the description and the exercise term:
DEFCON 5—(Exercise term: FADE OUT) normal readiness situation exists.
DEFCON4—(Exercise term: DOUBLE TAKE) increased intelligence watch and
strengthened security measures.
DEFCON 3—(Exercise term: ROUND HOUSE) an increase in force readiness above that
required for normal readiness.
DEFCON 2—(Exercise term: FAST PACE) a further increase in force readiness but less than
DEFCON 1—(Exercise term: COCKED PISTOL) maximum force readiness.
Emergency conditions consist of ___ conditions, what are they?
defense emergency and air defense emergency
Describe Defense emergency and state its exercise term.
A defense emergency (DE) exists when a confirmed major attack is made upon US or allied forces
overseas, or an overt attack of any type is made upon the US.
List, describe and name the exercise term of the attack warning conditions.
Air Defense Warning White—(Exercise term: SNOW MAN)—Attack by hostile aircraft,
space vehicles, or missiles is no longer considered probable.
Air Defense Warning Yellow—(Exercise term: LEMON JUICE)—Attack by hostile aircraft,
space vehicles, or missiles is probable.
Air Defense Warning Red—(Exercise term: APPLE JACK)—Attack by hostile aircraft,
space vehicles, or missiles is imminent or in progress.
Describe Air Defense emergency and state its emergency term.
An air defense emergency (ADE) exists when attack upon the continental United States (CONUS),
Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, or US installations in Greenland by hostile aircraft, missiles, or space
vehicles is considered probable, imminent, or is taking place
Who are the military authorities for the emergency security control of air traffic (ESCAT) plan in
the forty-eight contiguous states, including Washington, D.C., and Alaska?
Commander NORAD or individual NORAD region/sector commanders
How many priorities are contained in the ESCAT air traffic priority list (EATPL)?
Which priority of the EATPL includes the President of the United States and the Prime Minister
How many lines of latitude and longitude are there?
latitude= 90 lines
Why are latitude and longitude always read from the lower to the higher?
We always read latitude and longitude from the lower to the higher
numbers because positions are always expressed as distance from the equator and the prime meridian
Into what size zones does MGRS divide the earth’s surface and how are these zones designated?
MGRS divide the earth into narrow zones 6° of longitude in width beginning at the 180° meridian. The
zones are numbered 1 through 60 from this reference point
What type of construction does GARS provide?
What is a burst of energy transmitted by a radar sensor through the atmosphere or space?
List the basic radar components and briefly describe them: *9
-Synchronizer-the “brain”,coordinates the operation of the
various parts of the radar
extremely large, very short, square-wave pulse of DC voltage to the transmitter
-Transmitter-deliver a series of high-energy bursts of RF energy
-Duplexer-required when the transmitter and receiver use the same antenna
-Antenna-during transmission is to concentrate the radiated energy
into a shaped beam from an antenna that points in the desired direction. During reception, the antenna
collects the energy contained in the echo signal and delivers it to the receiver
-Receiver-detect desired echo signals in the presence of noise, interference, or
clutter; separate wanted from unwanted signals
-Receiver protectors-"fuse",ensure a circuit failure does not cause RF energy transmitted by the radar to
enter and overload the radar’s receivers
Define the terms “PRF” and “PRT” and explain why they are important.
The number of times the radar
transmits per second we know as the pulse repetition frequency (PRF).Transmission time, plus
resting time (or the time from the beginning of one pulse to the next) we call the pulse repetition time
The lower the PRF, the longer the PRT. The longer the resting
(listening) time of the radar, the more time there is for the transmitted pulse to go out, strike a target,
and return. Thus, the lower the PRF, the greater the range of the radar system. There are also some
negative effects to a low PRF, such as more susceptibility to interference. As a result, a correct
balance must be found between the PRF and the PRT
What is the part of the radio wave that bounces back to the antenna?
echo or return
What is the "brain" of the radar system? Why?
because it coordinates the operations of the various parts of the radar
What is the function of the modulator?
To provide an extremely large, very short square wave pulse of DC voltage to the transmitter
What device allows a single antenna to both transmit and receive?
What is the antennas purpose during transmission and reception?
T- concentrate the radiated energy into a shaped beam that points in the desired direction into space
R- the antenna collects the energy contained in the echo signal and delivers it to the receiver
What component of the radar separates wanted from unwanted returns?
