    Introduction to Naval Weapons
  Basic Definitions

Systems
       Weapon Nomenclature &
           Identification

AN/SQS-53 Sonar
“AN” means that the
nomenclature complies with the
system jointly adopted by U.S.
armed forces (Army- Navy).

First “S” identifies installation
type...here, “water surface
craft.”
            Components of a
            Weapons System
• Components that detect, locate, and identify the
  target.
• Components that direct or aim a delivery unit.
• Components that deliver or initiate delivery of
  the weapon to the target.
• Components that destroy the target when in
  contact with or near it.
              Weapon System
              Requirements
•   Reliability
•   Flexibility
•   Safety
•   Simplicity of Operation
•   Maintainability
•   Specific Military Requirements
      Detect to Engage Sequence
• 2 kinds:
    – Own ship
    – Battle Group
•   Detect (radar)
•   ID
•   Evaluate
•   Engage (what weapon and when)
       Three Warfare Areas:
• Anti-Air Warfare (AAW)
• Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW)
• Anti-Surface Warfare (ASUW)
                      Battle
                     Group
                    Operations
• Ship Employment
• High Value Unit
• Other units:
   – Cruisers, Destroyers, Frigates
   – Oilers, Supply ships, Tenders
   – Minesweepers, PC‟s
   – Amphibious units
• Defense In Depth concept
       Battle Group Operations
• Typical Battle Group:
  –   CVN
  –   CG x2
  –   DDG
  –   FFG
  –   AOE
  –   SSN x2
               Deployment of
                  Assets:
• Subs:
   – Independent steaming;
     out to 300 nm
               Deployment of
                  Assets:
• Aircraft:
   – AAW: E2C near CVN
     dependant on threat
     axis out to 300 nm. F-
     14/FA-18 out to 250
     nm.
   – ASW: Helos to
     7000yds. S-3 out to
     300 nm. P-3 out to
     500 nm.
        Our Next Topic,
Energy Fundamentals… But First

 Q1. Describe some weapons systems
     requirements and provide examples of
     why each is important.

 Q2. What are some of the weapons systems
     that you have seen while on summer
     cruise?
