Helo Det-based Course


Metrics Overview


Reporting Rules

DRRS-N Accounts

CNAF Readiness Brief


Keys to Success


Background – DRRS Background

  • DRRS provides a single, standardized DoD readiness reporting system based on Mission Essential Tasks (METs)
  • DRRS improves the assessment, visibility, and force management of our forces/organizations
  • DRRS is used by all services to report readiness to DoD and Joint Staff and is commonly referred to as DRRS-S (DRRS Strategic)

Background – Mission Essential Tasks

  • METs are tasks considered essential to accomplish and support missions and requirements assigned by a Joint or Naval Commander
  • The Mission Essential Task List (METL) is based on the Unit’s ROC/POE and maps tasks to capability areas
    • Capability Areas = Warfare Mission Areas from the ROC/POE
    • Squadrons only report on Primary Mission Areas from their ROC/POE
  • Each MET contains a set of conditions and standards
  • The METL is common to all units within a Responsible Organization (RespOrg)

Background – DRRS-N

  • DRRS-N is the tool Navy organizations use to report MET readiness data to DRRS
  • DRRS-N has two software applications
    • DRRS-N Ashore (SIPRNET)
    • DRRS-N Afloat (Shipboard)
  • Navy Policy Guidance
    • NTRP 1-03.5
    • OPNAV 3501.360
    • CNAP/CNAL 3500.38

Note: All references are on the CNAF Readiness Reference Tool


Background – DRRS-N Data Flow

DRRS-N is comprised of a network of interdependent systems, architectures, databases, and applications. The network provides the means for reporting readiness data when Ashore or Afloat.


Background – DRRS-N Assessments

  • DRRS-N contains two assessments:
  • Computed Assessment (Automated)
    • PESTO Pillars (Per, Eqp, Sup, Tng, Ord)
    • Pre-calculated data from authoritative data sources
    • Squadrons will see only the Personnel, Equipment and Training pillars
  • Commander’s Assessments (Subjective)
    • The Commander shall assess Core, Capability Areas, all METs, and the legacy SORTSREPNV C Rates
    • PESTO Pillar data is provided to assist the Commander in making an assessment
    • The Commander’s Core, Capability Area, and MET assessments are the only data that flow up beyond Navy lifelines to DRRS





Background – DRRS-N Data Sources

DRRS-N compiles unit resource values (called FOMs or Figures of Merit), using authoritative data sources. These values and associated data are available to the Commander as a guide for making unit assessments.

Note: The Parent Commands of detachment-based squadrons display the P-Pillar for the entire squadron. Individual dets don’t have their own P-Pillar.


Metrics Overview – PESTO Metrics

PESTO pillar data is dependent on inputs, data sources, frequencies, and metrics. The illustration below summarizes the inputs, data sources, frequencies, and metrics for personnel (P), equipment (E), and training (T).


Assessments – Types

  • The Commander assesses the following areas with a Y, Q, or N:
    • The MET
    • The Capability Area
    • The Core
    • In addition, the Commander shall update the OARS (Organization and Resource Status) data. OARS will be discussed later

Assessments – Values

The following values are used to assess the Core assessment, Capability Areas, and METs:




Assessments – Values

The following values are used to assess the Core assessment, Capability Areas, and METs:

Y – Yes (Green)

The unit can successfully perform an assigned Capability or MET to the prescribed standards and conditions. A “Yes” assessment should reflect demonstrated performance in training and operations.


Assessments – Values

The following values are used to assess the Core assessment, Capability Areas, and METs:

Q – Qualified Yes (Yellow)

(Used when data may not readily support a “Yes” assessment). The unit is expected to accomplish an assigned Capability or MET to the prescribed standards, under most conditions. This performance, however, has not been observed or demonstrated in operations or training. Units with this rating can be employed for those tasks.


Assessments – Values

The following values are used to assess the Core assessment, Capability Areas, and METs:

N – No (Red)

The unit cannot perform an assigned Capability or MET to the prescribed standards and conditions at this time. Supporting explanations are mandatory for any “N” assessment.


Assessments – TYCOM Guidance

  • Core assessment shall not be assessed as green if either MOB or CCC are assessed less than green
  • The Commander’s assessment shall not be green for any Capability Area if the unit fails to complete the full training requirements for any phase of the FRTP
  • Always Assess to the MCO standard and keep comments pointed and operationally focused.
    • “MCO ready” is defined as a unit’s ability to deliver it’s full design capability as delineated in the ROC/POE and should not be measured against the requirement of a specific OPLAN
  • Unit Commanding officers should not report “Y/Green” across the board because their unit is green for it’s current FRTP phase.

Assessments – Commander’s Remarks

  • The Core assessment block contains specific sections for your comments:
  • Overall Section: Describe the unit’s current readiness in relation to the wartime mission and ability to conduct current tasking
  • PESTO Sections: Describe the specific readiness issues and operational impacts
  • Comments should focus on current and future capability and issues
  • Projections on readiness changes should be based on events and not just the next DRRS-N assessment
  • Minimum comments should include;
    • Current FRTP (R+) month/phase
    • Next major FRTP milestone
    • Expected deployment date
    • Commander’s top readiness concerns

Note: Since only the Commander’s assessment and comments go up to DRRS, remarks about PESTO pillar data should be submitted to CNAF N40 via other means.


Assessments – Commander’s Remarks

  • Personnel Remarks
    • Squadron – Comment on IAs, TADs, and other issues that cause personnel shortages
    • Detachments – Comment on personnel issues even though the Det P Pillar is managed by the parent squadron
  • Equipment Remarks
    • Comment on aircraft maintenance issues and equipment shortages
  • Training Remarks
    • Use the SHARP skills report to highlight skills that are keeping your TFOM scores low
    • Pf data does not appear in the T Pillar drill down, so you must have good comments
  • General Remarks Tips
    • Use plain language; this is not a message, so use sentence case
    • DRRS-N is about MCO capability and not what your unit is tasked with currently
    • Do not use SORTS terminology in DRRS-N comments
    • Det personnel and equipment shortages are resolved at the squadron level
    • Don’t just write, “Readiness as per FRTP phase”
    • There is no need to delay an assessment due to PESTO pillars that are not populated or erroneous pillar data

Assessments – Commander’s Remarks

The SHARP Crew METs w/Individual Skills report is a useful tool for writing Training

comments. This report helps the squadron determine the status of skilled crews (Pf)

for any given NTA


Assessments – SORTSREPNV Data Reporting

  • In addition to the MET assessments, the Commander shall update the OARS data.
    • CJCS has not released the component services from their responsibility to report SORTSREPNV data
    • USFF includes the OARS data in DRRS-N to capture legacy SORTSREPNV data
    • OARS transmits SORTSREPNV data along with the DRRS-N assessment and creates a SORTSREPNV report internal to the larger DRRS network for use at Joint Staff

Assessments – OARS Data Calculations

Everyone with a DRRS-N account can view your OARS data. To update the data in the

OARS page, select the Edit buttons or by click on the C Rate boxes. The data in the

OARS page is filled in by selecting the Edit buttons or by clicking on the C Rate boxes

(in the InStaffing view only).


Assessments – OARS Data Calculations

  • When the user selects either Edit buttons or clicks on the C rate boxes, a data entry
  • screen will appear. Complete the data fields required.
    • Report current employment via the Activity Code sets
    • Report deployment status using the pull-down menu
    • C Rates should be consistent with the commander’s assessed (DRRS-N) values
    • Ordnance C Rates for squadrons are N/A
    • The Supply C Rate is manually calculated based on the assigned Det aircraft

Assessments – OARS Data Calculations

    • Report the ship’s UIC when embarked, LAT/LONG when home (homeport only)
    • Category Level and Limitations are N/A for CNAF units
    • Percent Effective is your readiness to perform your currently assigned mission (1-4)
    • Chem-Bio is normally C4 for squadrons until deployed
    • Report BA/NMP/COB for all officers/enlisted in the Personnel Strength boxes
  • - Dets report COB only, all other personnel strength numbers are zero

Note: The guidance for completing the OARS page is contained in Section 5 of the CNAP/CNAL 3500.38


Reporting Rules - Frequency

  • Submit assessments in DRRS-N as follows:
  • Within 24 hours of a significant change in readiness
  • Within 30 days of the last assessment
  • Following completion of major FRTP milestones to include TSTA, ARP, Air Wing Fallon, and C2X
  • When otherwise directed

Note: Your ISIC may also direct a DRRS-N assessment based on COCOM or Fleet Commander reporting requirement.


Reporting Rules – Who Reports

  • HSL/HSM/HSC/HM Expeditionary Parent Command (PARCOM)
    • Report every 30 days or when there is a significant change in readiness
    • The P Pillar reflects the entire sea and shore personnel readiness
    • No E or T Pillar is planned for Parent Commands
    • Comments should reflect squadron level issues that effect the squadron’s ability to resource Dets
  • HSL/HSM/HSC/HM Expeditionary Detachments
    • The E, and T Pillars reflect the resourcing for the Det only
    • Conduct continuous AMSRR reporting to support the Det E Pillar

Note: For the purposes of readiness reporting, a detachment is defined as a unit identified in the DRRS-N database that deploys to a ship or land base without the parent command structure (which remains at the designated homeport location)


Reporting Rules – Readiness Expectations

  • The Fleet Response Training Plan (FRTP) standards are designed to incrementally prepare a unit for its full wartime readiness
  • During an FRTP cycle, the expectations of readiness increase progressively from “No”(Red)in the maintenancephase to “Yes”(Green) at the beginning of a unit’s employability window
  • The commander’s assessment is expected to change from red to yellow as the unit moves from the basic phase to the intermediate phase assuming that the unit is on track and is resourced appropriately in the FRTP
  • Units should strive to maintain a “Yes”(Green) throughout their employability window unless their mission forces a degrade in certain Capability Areas (single mission focus, non-wartime tasking)
  • Not all units follow this type of FRTP model (HM, VQ(T), VPU, and FDNF)





T&R Funding

T Pillar

Note: Currently MOB is the only Capability Area that is intended to be green prior to the employability phase.


Reporting Rules – Readiness Expectations

HSC (EXP) only

  • HSC (EXP) detachments will train to one of four tailored Capability-Based Training and Readiness Matrices based on their deployment requirements
  • Each matrix will require the detachment to report readiness on specific Capability Areas
  • Capability Areas in DRRS-N that are not listed below should be assessed as RED with an associated comment that states that the detachment does not train to the Capability Area in their current assignment

DRRS-N Accounts

  • DRRS-N Ashore
    • Requested via the SIPRNET (https://drrsn.ffc.navy.smil.mil/drrsn)
    • Accounts are managed by USFFC
    • At least, CO, XO, OPS, and OIC should have Commander permissions
    • Help Desk: 757-836-6365 (DSN 836)
    • Email: drrsn@navy.mil
  • DRRS-N Afloat
    • Primarily where you will make DRRS-N assessments when embarked
    • OPS Dept on the ship/OPS ADMIN on the CVN creates accounts for all embarked units
    • Help Desk: 757-836-5241 (DSN 836)
    • Email: drrsn@navy.mil
  • Tips
    • For dets, if SIPRNET is down on the ship, the parent squadron can submit for you using DRRS-N Ashore
    • Remember to sync all data when you first use your DRRS-N Afloat account
    • Sync PESTO data only if the data has not refreshed

DRRS-N Accounts - Permissions

Account permission levels for both DRRS-N Ashore and Afloat have the same functionality but

have different names. The table below describes the permission levels. CNAF recommends

that the CO/OIC, XO, and OPS-O all have the Commander/Releaser permission level. The CO has the discretion to assign any permission level to personnel in their command

DRRS-N permission levels:


CNAF Readiness Brief (Helo Detachments)

  • The helicopter detachment pages are organized by Community first then further organized by FRTP phase.
  • Detachments in maintenance phase are not displayed on the brief.
  • Detachments assigned to a CSG or ESG are displayed on the same page as their deployment group.
  • Parent Commands are also displayed along with their detachments
  • Detachments no longer have a P Pillar

Training Plan – Methods

Three avenues for DRRS-N training are:

  • On-line and embedded training
    • CNAF Readiness Reference Tool
    • Help functions in DRRS-N
  • Pipeline training
    • PXO Course
    • HSM OIC Course
    • ARP DRRS-N Training
  • Waterfront briefs
    • Quarterly at Fleet Concentration sites
    • As requested by units

Keys to Success

  • CO/OIC gets 100% of the vote in the Commander’s assessment regardless of the PESTO pillars.
      • The unit needs to understand their FRTP cycle and their readiness expectations
  • Remarks should be focused on readiness issues for your detachment
    • Do not use SORTS terminology in remarks
    • Ensure that all remark fields are continually updated
    • Concentrate your remarks in the Core Comment block
  • Evaluate all METs, Capability Areas, Core, and OARS on every assessment
    • OARS data should match the current DRRS-N Capability Area assessments
  • Manage the input systems (AMSRR, SHARP, etc.)
    • Flight logging in SHARP really matters
    • The AMSRR must contain numbers for all aircraft and equipment fields, even if the number is zero
  • Take advantage of the TYCOM and Type Wing experts
