The inertial navigation unit is a gyro-stabilized sensing accelerometer, which senses, measures, and integrates the accelerations of the aircraft and applies them to present position to maintain a continuously updated store of position and navigation data, which can be monitored. The unit continuously tracks changes to magnetic azimuth and variation through and interface with a precomputed database. The system also computes true course and bearing information (measured from true north) to provide a capability for accurate navigation in latitudes where magnetic variations are excessive (above approximately 70 degrees north and below 70 degrees south). The INS provides attitude, heading, and navigation reference, computation and guidance for maneuvering flight and enroute navigation. INS is installed in the F5N modesl only.
Armament System
Consists of two 20-millimeter M-39A3 guns, installed high in the nose section. Bombs rockets, and milliles are externally carried, delivered, and launched from pylon and wingtip positions.
Fire Control System
Accomplishes target detection acquisition, and range tracking, lead computation for guns, arming and in-range envelope computation for missiles, and provides a roll stabilized, manually depressible aiming reference for the use of guns, bombs, and rockets against ground targets.
Fire Control Radar
The AN/APQ-153 is a light-weight, X-band, air-to-air search and range-tracking fire control radar. The AN/APQ-159(V)3 is a multimode, forward-looking, x-band, air-to-air search and range-tracking fire control radar.
Lead Computing Optical Sight (LCOS)
Consists of an optical display unit, and a gyro lead computer. The LCOS provides three modes of operation: air-to-air missile, air-to-air guns, and manual. Performs in-range envelope computations.
Radar Warning Receiver
The radar warning system acquires, processes, and identifies emissions from those frequency ranges where the vast majority of radar systems used for military purposes is operated. Looking at the equipment design of the radar warning system, we distinguish here between a Low band and a High band range; the High band range again is subdivided into four subbands.
Countermeasures Dispensing System
The AN/ALE-40(v)CDS provides the capability of dispensing flare or chaff payloads as a means of defense against hostile radar or IR missile attack. If a combination of flare and chaff is loaded, the system is capable of dispensing independently both as determined by the cockpit controls and programmer.
How do the components work together to achieve the system's function
A fire control system accomplishes target detection, acquisition, and range tracking, and targeting. The three pylon stations and two wingtip positions carry, deliver and launch bombs, rockets, and missiles.
State and discuss your command's mission statement.
The mission of the command is to provide the highest quality adversary training to the men and women who, as fleet naval aviators, are the instruments of national will and policy.
Discuss the role of the F5 E/F aircraft.
Is to provide a dissimilar aircraft to fly. It is cheaper to operate. And it has a quicker turnaround between flights. Only 3 units: VFC 13, VFC 111, and marines in yuma.
Discuss the following primary warfare mission areas:
1. TopGun
2. Reserve Air Group (RAG)
3. Airwing Support Operations
4. Strike Fighter Advanced Readiness Program (SFARP)
1. is an elite group of pilots that go thru training to improve their dog-fighting skills.
2. also referred to as FRS (Fleet Replacement Squadron). The training squadrons that train new pilots to replace the ones that retire or end their service.
3. comes in before deployment we play adversaries.
4. F18 is strike fighter F18's, come to town to hone their skills as a squadron before deployment.
