Your command may from time to time request assistance from another activity. This outside
assistance is usually for the purpose of training, technical assistance on unusual design, planning,
installation, or solving maintenance problems. Many of these activities exist throughout the fleet and
shore establishments. Their capabilities and areas of responsibility differ just as equipment and systems
differ. Several of the more widely known activities are included below.
MOBILE TECHNICAL UNITS (MOTU).MOTUs provide on-the-job training and technical
assistance for shipboard NAVSEA-SYSCOM/NAVELEXSYSCOM systems and equipment. They are
staffed by senior military personnel and Contractor Engineering and Technical Services (CETS)
representatives. MOTUs and NAUSEA combined about 10 years ago to form FTSCLANT/PAC.
MOTUs are located in the following areas:
Pearl Harbor, Hawaii
San Diego, Calif.
NSB Kings Bay, Ga.
NAVAL SEA SYSTEMS COMMAND (NAVSEA). NAVSEA provides technical assistance
through the use of direct fleet support technicians (TECHREP). These technicians are not to be used
primarily as repairmen. The objective of their services is to promote fleet readiness and maintenance self-
sufficiency. NAVSEATECHREP are located at Naval Sea Support Centers (NAVSEACENs) in
Portsmouth, Va., and San Diego, Calif. They are also located at Fleet Support Offices (FSOs) in Mayport,
Fla., Charleston, S.C., and New London, Conn. Selected equipment may have services provided by
NAVSES, Philadelphia, or NAVSHIPWPNSYSENGSTA (NSWSES), Port Hueneme, Calif.
NAVAL ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS COMMAND (NAVELEX). NAVELEX equipment is
supported by the Fleet Liaison Program. Training and technical assistance is provided by civilian
technicians at six NAVELEX field activities. Five are Naval Electronic Systems Engineering Centers
(NESECs) and one is a Naval Electronic Systems Engineering Activity (NESEA). Fleet Liaison Offices
are located at NESEC Washington, D.C., NESEC Charleston, S.C., NESEC Portsmouth, Va., NESEC
San Diego, Calif., NESEC Vallejo, Calif., and NESEA St. Inigoes, Md.
NAVAL AIR SYSTEMS COMMAND (NAVAIR). NAVAIR established the Navy Engineering
and Technical Services (NETS) program to provide a source of technical and training assistance
expertise. The program is comprised of military and civilian personnel. These people are qualified to
provide advice, instruction, and training to support the installation, operation, and maintenance of Navy
weapons, weapon-systems, and equipment. NETS technicians are assigned and administered by the
Pacific Missile Test Center, Point Mugu, Calif., and the Naval Aviation Engineering Service Unit
(NAESU), Philadelphia, Pa.
The Pacific Missile Test Center provides engineering and technical services on air-launched missile
systems, air-launched guided weapons, Navy target systems, conventional ordnance, and associated
