B ball. A pilot report indicating that the visual landing aid is in sight. The ships magnetic heading during flight operations. An order to proceed and land at the field specified, utilizing a bingo profile. Bearing, distance, and destination shall be provided.

Anticipated time specified by PriFly that the deck will be ready to recover aircraft and the first aircraft of a Case II recovery is expected to be at the break. A term referring to the ILM. Automatic transmission device capable of very high data rate. Used by the final controller to observe data being sent to aircraft under PALS control.

A signal given to hold and conserve fuel at an altitude and position appropriate to type aircraft and case recovery in effect. DELTA switch. A signal given to an aircraft authorizing an airborne internal crew switch. This position is also responsible for monitoring the location and package status of tanker aircraft; the location of lowstate aircraft and their fuel requirements.

Departure reference radial DRR. An order for an aircraft to proceed and land at the field specified. This is a nonemergency situation. E eight nautical miles DME fix. A checkpoint in a CCA, normally located on the final bearing, 8 miles from the carrier. All jet and turboprop aircraft will pass through the 8-nm DME fix in level flight at an altitude of 1, feet, KIAS, and will normally commence transition to the landing configuration. The future time, assigned prior to launch, at which an aircraft is cleared to depart inbound or penetrate from a preassigned fix under lost communication conditions.

The future time at which an aircraft is cleared to depart inbound or penetrate from a preassigned fix. Aircraft depart and commence approach at assigned time if no further instructions are received. F final bearing. It is an extension of the landing area centerline. Approach control retains overall responsibility for separation of aircraft.

Navy fixed, shore-based air traffic control facility. Designated to manage offshore and inland operating areas and other assigned airspace, including special use airspace. Provides joint-use scheduling and control of surface, subsurface, and airborne military platforms operating within and transiting to and from these areas.

Administers services to support the coexistence of military government and nongovernment agencies consistent with national priorities. Pressure altitude expressed in hundreds of feet determined by setting Instrument Carrier Landing System.

A precision approach in which precise and continuous position error and range information from the ILM and TACAN is displayed in an aircraft enabling a manually controlled precision approach to appropriate minimums. It may be, but is not necessarily, the final bearing.

The magnetic heading assigned by CATCC that will ensure interception of the final bearing at a specific distance from the carrier. A television system used to provide real-time imagery and recordings of aircraft during launch and recovery operations.

ITL weapon. K KILO report. A pilot coded report indicating aircraft mission readiness. L load report. A verbal report from the final controller when PALS radar acquires the aircraft and com19 mences tracking. M marshal. A bearing, distance, and altitude fix designated by CATCC from which pilots will orient holding and from which initial approach will commence. A control position in CATCC responsible for providing control and arrival information to inbound aircraft until handed off to another controlling agency.

Mode I approach. Mode IA approach. Mode II approach. Mode IID flight director approach. An enhanced Mode II approach in which pitch and roll guidance is transmitted to a HUD display to assist the pilot in the capture and maintenance of the glidepath and centerline to appropriate minimums. Mode IIT approach. Mode III approach. The monitoring of radar and radio channels for emergency transmissions. Precision instrument approach cockpit indications from PALS radar equipment.

Radar controlled approach or an approach flown by reference to navigation aids in which glideslope information is not available. A form of air traffic control in which the pilot flies according to a published procedure or as prescribed by the controlling agency.

Traffic separation is provided by the controlling agency, using frequent pilot position reports and modified separation criteria. This form of control is used only in case of emergency, when all shipboard air control radar is inoperative or, in the opinion of the CATCC officer, unusable.

O operational commitment. A situation of such compelling urgency that failure to grant a deviation from established explosive safety criteria will have a deleterious impact on the mission readiness of naval forces. P PALS acquisition window. An area in space surrounding the glideslope and extended centerline of the landing area in which aircraft are acquired by the PALS radar. A point of 5, feet altitude in the approach pattern at which all jet and turboprop aircraft will decrease their rate of descent to not more than 2, feet per minute, continuing letdown to the nm DME fix.

A pilot coded report indicating aircraft flying in clouds or area of reduced visibility. A form of air traffic control in which the controlling agency has radar and radio contact with the aircraft being controlled and published approach or departure procedures are complied with, or where specific assignments regarding heading and altitude are issued by the controller. While altitude separation is provided by pilot maintaining assigned altitude, lateral and time separation is the responsibility of the air traffic controller.

Speed changes may be directed by the air traffic controller. An approach in which azimuth, glideslope, and distance information are provided the pilot. Precision approach and landing system PALS. A system consisting of shipboard and aircraft components for all weather recovery of carrier-based aircraft.

R ramp time ready deck. Anticipated time specified by PriFly that the deck will be ready to recover aircraft and the first aircraft of a Case III recovery is expected to be at the ramp. The local time at which a helicopter will no longer be SAR capable and has approximately 30 minutes of flight time remaining. A report given to COD aircraft by marshal providing offload information on passengers, mail, cargo, or any other pertinent information.

S six nautical miles DME fix. A checkpoint in a CCA located on the final bearing 6 miles from the carrier through which all jet and turboprop aircraft will pass in level flight at an altitude of 1, feet in landing configuration. When necessary for traffic separation, turboprop aircraft may be instructed to commence transition to landing configuration no later than the 6-nm DME fix. A signal given to one or more aircraft indicating a departure and reentry into the break. The command Spin may be issued by either the air officer or a flight leader.
