Sonobuoys are categorized ______, _____, and ______ ________. This particular family of devices consists of compact electronic receiver/transmitters that are dropped from the aircraft into the ocean at a predetermined point. The devices receive ________ in the ocean and transmit them to the aircraft
Active, Passive, and Special Purpose.
P-3C Search and Kill Stores:

Active buoys transmit a ______ of sound underwater that will ____ off nearby submarines. This information is then transmitted back to the aircraft. The _____ _______ generates commands that are transmitted to sonobouys.
Analyzer Subunit
P-3C Search and Kill Stores:

______ buoys are essentially underwater _________ (_______) that passively listen to all sounds in the water.
Microphones (hydrophones)
Decribe Special purpose buoys
Special purpose buoys are bathythermograph (BT) buoys, which measure the ocean temperature.
Sonobuoys are preset and loaded into the _______ of the rear fuselage of the aircraft as well as ________ in the aircraft. In the aircraft they can be launched out of the _____ pressurized chutes or the free fall chute.
Describe Sonobuoy Launch Tubes (SLTs).
Consists of 48 tubes visible in the bottom of the fuselage near the aft end of the aircraft. These tubes are utilized to externally load and launch sonobuoys.
Describe the Free Fall Chute.
Consists of a single chute located aft of the 3 PSLTs. A protective sleeve is inserted into the free fall chute prior to usage. This eliminates possible damage to the aft under-section of the aircraft fuselage.
Describe Signal Underwater Sound (SUS).
A sea water activated signaling device used to communicate with a submerged submarines during exercises.
Describe Pyrotechnics.
They are fireworks adapted to military use to produce bright lights or smoke for signaling. They produce their effects by burning and are consumed in the process.
Describe Marine Location Markers (MLM).
MLMs are dropped by the aircraft to provide visual marks in the form of smoke on the ocean’s surface. These may be used to mark the position of a submarine during an ASW mission or a survivor in the water during SAR missions.
Describe Kill stores.
Consist of torpedoes, mines, bombs, rockets and guided missiles.
What is a Bomb rack.
Aircraft bombs, torpedoes, mines, missile and other stores are suspended internally or externally from pylons by bomb racks. Bomb racks carry, arm and release stores.

AGMs are air-launched missiles used against surface targets such as ships and ground targets.
What is a ATM- Air-Launched Training Missile.
ATMs are air-launched training missiles with non-exploding warheads.
What is a CATM- Captive Air Training Missile.
Used for pilot training in aerial target acquisition and aircraft controls/displays. They are not launched and carry an inert rocket motor and warhead.
What is a DATM- Dummy Air Training Missile.
DATMs are ground training missiles
that are used to train ground personnel in missile assembly/disassembly, uploading/downloading, and handling procedures.
Describe Cluster bombs.
Cluster bombs are dispensers which contain a number of bomblets for use against armored vehicles, personnel or small craft.
Describe Practice bombs.
Practice bombs are full scale, non-exploding bombs. Full scale practice bombs are representative of service bombs in size and weight.
Describe Live bombs.
Low Drag General Purpose (LDGP) bombs are the bomb of choice for naval aviation. These bombs are aerodynamically streamlined and designed to produce maximum blast effect.
Describe Mines.
Mines are used in offensive or defensive mining operations. The primary objective is to effectively defend or control vital straits, port approaches, convoy anchorages, and seaward coastal barriers.
Describe Torpedoes.
Torpedoes are primary weapon used in antisubmarine warfare. They are released from the aircraft into the water where they travel to their target.
