questions and provide research on any and all aviation
life support systems (i.e. You need a special fit helmet, flight
suit, or torso harness, but your PRs don't know how to obtain it).
questions concerning aviation physiology and provide technical assistant
for HAZREPS and Mishap Investigations involving ALSS and human factors.
new and improved aircrew systems to replace your outdated gear.
you in obtaining hard-to-get quotas for Physiology or Water Survival Training.
the E-2 community at all NAVAIR sponsored aircrew systems conferences
(i.e. OAGs, IMPs, etc).
questions on anything from ALSS and custom fit flight clothing to emergency
egress and water survival training, contact the AMSO at DSN 351-1775.
Safety & Aeromedical Safety Officers
Safety is a division of CAEWWP's Safety Department and is supported by
the Aeromedical Safety Officer (AMSO).
aeronautically designated Medical Service Corps (MSC) Officers from the
Aerospace Physiology community and are graduates of the Naval Postgraduate
School's Aviation Safety Officer program. AMSOs are assigned to Wings
and Groups within the Navy and Marine Corps.
As members of the Aeromedical Safety Program, AMSOs provide aeromedical
consultation and identify aeromedical threats facing aircrew. This mission
is further described in OPNAVINST
3750.6R (Naval Aviation Safety Program) and OPNAVINST
3710.7U (General NATOPS).
In an effort
to better support the Fleet, AMSOs must become thoroughly acquainted with
and participate in operational flights. Furthermore, AMSOs must maintain
professional currency and expertise in Aerospace Physiology and Navy Medicine
by attending scientific meetings and MSC training programs.
/ C-2 Squadron Support
for CAEWWP provides the following services:
the Wing Safety Officer in monitoring initiatives designed to promote
safe aircraft operations and ensure compliance with OPNAVINST 3750.6.
the local Fleet Air Indoctrination/Liaison of Survival Aircrew Flight
Equipment (FAILSAFE) Program. This includes:
liaison with E-2C / C-2A squadrons.
usage of Aviation Life Support Systems (ALSS).
and work to resolve ALSS problems.
ALSS fleet assessments by serving as the point of contact, developing
E-2C / C-2A operational requirements and providing feedback to NAVAIR
via FAILSAFE Tiger Team interactions.
and maintains an effective Aeromedical Brief Program to include state-of-the-art,
mission-specific, and operationally relevant physiological threat briefs.
as an instructor for the Spatial Disorientation module within the Instrument
Ground School curriculum.
Aircraft Mishap Boards either as full member or as technical advisor.
This function is especially important for mishaps involving human factors
and/or ALSS issues.
and coordinates local Aircrew Systems mini-Operator Advisory Groups
technical expertise and training for operator and maintenance indoctrination
of new and modified Aircrew Systems, to include maintenance of official
Technical Data Indoctrination Packages (TDIPs).
when necessary to provide specialized aeromedical support during actual
shipboard or contingency/combat operations.
