Abstract : The study concludes that the primary reason for present programs of enlisted training and education in oceanography is to support ASW. There is a significant lack of courses, schools, and self-study material available to enlisted personnel on the subject of oceanography. Through more than the surface ASW community in the ability to utilize ASW. ASW sonar technicians are inadequately trained in environmental effects on underwater sound propagation. To increase the oceanography knowledge of all enlisted personnel including STs and to provide enlisted ratings to better utilize training in environmental effects, several programs are proposed. These programs include an ASW sensor rating and an oceanographer rating. (Author)
