Figure 2-4.—Identification badges and breast insignia worn by eligible enlisted personnel
AGs  observe,  collect,  record,  and  analyze meteorological and oceanographic data. They make visual and instrument observations of weather and sea conditions,  operate  meteorological  satellite  receivers, and  interpret  and  apply  satellite  data.  They  also interpret and brief radar imagery and data and interpret meteorological  and  oceanographic  codes.  AGs additionally  prepare  warnings  of  severe  or  hazardous weather  and  sea  conditions,  forecast  meteorological  and oceanographic  conditions,  and  prepare  and  present briefings   concerning   current   and   predicted environmental conditions and their effect on operations. OCCUPATIONAL   FIELD   24   (AVIATION SENSOR OPERATIONS).—  This  occupational  filed also  contains  only  one  rating—Aviation  Antisubmarine Warfare Operator (AW). The insignia for this rating is a  winged  symbol  of  crossed  electron  orbits  pierced vertically  with  a  lightning  bolt  heading  downward toward  waves. AWs  perform  general  flightcrew  duties.  They operate  ASW  sensor  systems  to  extract,  analyze,  and classify  data  obtained. They also perform specified preflight,  inflight,  and  postflight  diagnostic  functions using  manual  techniques,  built-in  test  equipment (BITE), and computer routines to effect fault isolation and  optimize  system  performance.  AWs  operate  tactical support center systems to analyze and classify ASW data, assist in aircrew briefing and debriefing, and provide database information to the tactical commander for use in prescribing mission objectives and tactics. You have just read about the Navy’s occupational fields and the various ratings included in these fields. Also, do not be confused with the occupational field numbers. You  probably  noticed  that  we  skipped occupational  field  number  11.  That  was  necessary because  we  no  longer  have  that  field.  Nevertheless,  the other  occupational  fields  are  numbered  correctly. Remember, this information was current at the time this TRAMAN was being written. For more information concerning  the  duties  and  responsibilities  of  the personnel in these Navy ratings and for any additional information  concerning  the  Navy’s  rating  structure,  we recommend you refer to the most recent edition of the Manual of Navy Enlisted Manpower and Personnel 2-26 Classifications  and  Occupational  Standards,  Volume  I, part B, NAVPERS 18068, and to appendix F of the Retention Team Manual, NAVPERS 15878, to find the current qualifications needed for entry into these ratings plus  additional  information  on  the  current  duties  and responsibilities of the personnel who are assigned to serve in these ratings. SPECIAL QUALIFICATIONS, INSIGNIA, AND DISTINGUISHING MARKS Besides rating badges, naval enlisted personnel wear other special insignias or designations if they are qualified to do so. These distinguishing marks are worn by personnel who have special qualifications in addition to those required for their ratings. As  a  PN,  you  should  be  aware  of  these  special designations. Some  identification  badges  and  breast insignia worn by eligible enlisted personnel are shown in figure 2-4. Other badges and breast insignia worn by officer and enlisted personnel are shown in chapter 10 of the  United   States   Navy   Uniform   Regulations, NAVPERS  15665. In  the  remaining  sections  of  this  chapter,  we  will take a brief look at some of these special designations and their associated titles and qualifications. MCPON AND FLEET, FORCE, AND COMMAND MASTER CHIEFS One   of   the   most   prized   enlisted   marks   of achievement is the insignia for the Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy. The MCPON sleeve device as well as the sleeve devices for fleet, force, and command master chiefs are shown in figure 2-5. To review the qualifications and special duties and responsibilities of the MCPON, refer to the applicable sections presented earlier in this chapter. ENLISTED WARFARE SPECIALIST QUALIFICATIONS There  are  three  enlisted  warfare  specialist qualifications.  They  are  the  Enlisted  Surface  Warfare Specialist  (ESWS),  the  Enlisted  Aviation  Warfare Specialist (EAWS), and the Seabee Combat Warfare Specialist  (SCWS).  Attainment  of  these  qualifications by eligible personnel carries a very special significance, as  explained  in  the  following  paragraphs.
