A number of publications issued by the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) will be of in-terest to you. While you do not need to know everything that is given in the publications men-tioned here, you should have a general idea of where to find information in NAVSEA publications. The Naval Ships’ Technical Manual is a basic doctrine publication of NAVSEA. To allow the ship to distribute copies to the working spaces where information is required, chapters are now issued as separate paper-bound volumes. Chapters are kept up to date by means of yearly revisions.

Chapters are reviewed less frequently where yearly revisions are not necessary. In chapters where intra-year changes are required, either an intra-year edition or a NAVSEA Notice is distributed as a temporary supplement for use pending issue of the new edition of the chapter.

You will find chapters in Naval Ships’ Technical Manual of particular importance to the Engineman referenced in this training manual. For a list of all chapters in the manual, see appendix A, chapter 001.

The Deck Plate is a monthly publication which contains interesting and useful information on all aspects of shipboard engineering. This magazine is particularly useful because it presents information which supplements and clarifies information contained in the Naval Ships’ Technical Manual and because it presents information on new equipment, policies, and procedures.

Manufacturers’ technical manuals that are furnished with most machinery units and many types of equipment are valuable sources of information on operation, maintenance, and repair of machinery and equipment. The manufacturers’ technical manuals for internal combustion engines and associated equipment are usually given NAVSEA numbers.


Training films which are available to naval personnel are a valuable source of supplementary information on many technical subjects. Films that may be of interest to you are listed in the Department of the Navy Catalog of Audiovisual Production Products, OPNAVINST 3 157.1. When selecting a film, note its date of issue in the film catalog. As you know, procedures sometimes change rapidly. Thus some films become obsolete rapidly. If a film is obsolete only in part, it may sometimes be shown effec-tively if before or during its showing you carefully point out to trainees the procedures that have changed. When you plan to show a film to train personnel, take a look at it in advance if possible so that you may spot material that may have become obsolete, then verify current procedures by looking them up in the appropriate sources before showing the film.
