asterisk* the person who would serve as the
best point of contact. Make sure the name is
legible and include phone numbers when
possible. The 3-M COORDINATOR block
must be signed by the EOSS coordinator. Note
that the EOSS feedback system is separate
from the PMS system. The distribution of the
feedback copies is as follows:

NAVWARCENSSES Philadelphia for
category A feedbacks or to the TYCOM for
category B feedbacks. If the TYCOM
determines that the NAVWARCENSSES
action is appropriate, they will forward the

PREPARE FULL POWER AND
ECONOMY TRIAL REPORTS
As a GS supervisor, full power and economy trials
will be a very important part of your responsibilities.
Through proper leadership and training these trials can
be proof of your management skills. They are proof of
your ability to maintain your propulsion equipment at
peak levels of performance.
Although FXP-4 mobility (MOB) exercises
delineate general requirements for conducting
engineering trials, inconsistencies have developed
among different naval commands in levying
different requirements for full power and economy
trials for nonnuclear surface ships. Full power and
economy trial requirements are based partially on
calculations and partially on design requirements.
It is not economically feasible to conduct full-scale
trials to document every possible condition.
Therefore, to avoid confusion, the reporting system
for trial results is found in OPNAVINST 9094.1,
Full Power and Economy Trial Requirements for
Non-nuclear Surface Ship Classes.
In this section we will briefly discuss the
performance of these trials and the processing of data
needed to complete the required reports.
FULL POWER TRIALS
A full power trial must be conducted annually for a
minimum duration of one hour and at a minimum depth
of water as prescribed in NSTM, chapter 094. All full
