Who navsea and navsea 05s are
Who NAVSEA and NAVSEA 05S Are?

Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA)

  • As the largest of the Navy's five system commands, NAVSEA is responsible for the development, delivery, and maintenance of the Navy's ships, submarines, and systems

  • NAVSEA has the responsibility of establishing and enforcing technical authority in combat system design and operation

    NAVSEA 05S – What We Do

  • Provide support to the CHENG to develop and maintain NAVSEA technical policy, guidance, and provide governance for:

    • Technical Authority: Alignment of warranted technical areas and technical documents to the Technical Authority (TA) chain of command

    • Technical Standards, Processes, and Tools: Ensure proper identification, maintenance, coordination, and compliance of technical standards, specifications, and technical documents. Support TWH technical document stewardship with technical document management and coordination, including Ship Specifications. Technical standards use the organization's technical expertise to ensure systems are engineered effectively, and that they operate safely and reliably

Supporting navy missions
Supporting Navy Missions

  • Standardization documents must:

    • Reflect the Navy’s mission needs and include valid requirements and verification provisions

    • Support DoD acquisition goals

    • Conserve DoD resources

    • Support the industrial base

    • Allow for dual-use technology

    • Improve DoD mobilization capabilities

    • NAVSEA manages and maintains over 3,000 specs and standards

    • Approximately 500 Specifications are undergoing a maintenance action (e.g., revise, amend/change, inactivate, cancel, and validate) today

    • Included are development, revision, and adoption of Non-Government Standards

Statement A: Approved for Release. Distribution is unlimited.

Specification types
Specification Types

  • NGS (Non Government Standard)

  • Standard Developing Organizations (SDOs)

  • ASTM is an SDO

  • SD-9 provides DoD Guidance in Development and Use of NGSs

  • Commercial Item Descriptions

  • Defense Specifications

  • Performance

  • Detail

  • Qualification

  • Defense Specs (both MIL-PRFs and MIL-DTLs)

  • Federal Specs

  • Adopted NGSs

  • Considerations

  • Drives cost savings into design

Statement A: Approved for Release. Distribution is unlimited.

Ngs policy
NGS Policy

  • Section 12(d) of Public Law 104-113, National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act, March 7, 1996

    Requires federal agencies to use NGSs and participate in their development to meet agency needs and objectives, when it is consistent with the agency’s mission, priorities, and budget resources

  • DoD Instruction 4120.24, Defense Standardization Program (DSP)

    As part of establishing policy and assigning responsibilities for the DSP, requires that NGSs shall be used in preference to developing and maintaining Government specifications and standards as required by section 12(d) of Public Law 104-113 and requires that the Director, DSP Office shall interface with Specification Development Organizations (SDOs) on standardization policy issues

  • DoDM 4120.24, Defense Standardization Program (DSP) Procedures

    As a part of assigning responsibilities and prescribing the procedures for implementing the DSP, Enclosure (9) , Non-Government Standards, addresses responsibilities and provides detailed procedures related to NGSs (e.g., SDO participation in NGS development and maintenance and NGS use and adoption)

  • SECNAVINST 4120.24, Implementation of the Defense Standardization Program in the Department of the Navy

    Implements the policies of DoDI 4120.24 whereby NGSs shall be used and tailored in preference to developing and maintaining government standards

  • ETAP 3.3, NAVSEA Technical Standards Procedures, Appendix D – Non-Government Standards (NGSs)

    Provides NAVSEA guidance on the development, maintenance, and adoption of NGSs, including participation in SDOs and conducting internal consensus reviews

Statement A: Approved for Release. Distribution is unlimited.

Promoting the use of ngss
Promoting the Use of NGSs

In carrying out Section 12(d) of Public Law 104-113, NAVSEA:

  • Encourages NAVSEA employees to participate on SDO Technical Committees to promote standards that meet DoD needs

  • Adopts and uses NGSs in preference to developing new or updating existing defense and federal specifications and standards, whenever possible

  • Encourages NGSs for use:

    • in direct procurements

    • as references in other documents

    • as design or reference guides

  • Ensures that NGSs, deemed to be of such importance that adoption must be re-evaluated with each revision to the NGS, are adopted as Tier I Adoptions

  • As an Adopting Activity, serves as the official DoD technical focal point for that NGS and represent DoD on all technical matters related to the NGS

  • As an SDO participant in developing and maintaining NGSs, conducts a consensus review within the DoD standardization community and submits a consolidated DoD position to the SDO Technical Committee

Statement A: Approved for Release. Distribution is unlimited.

Completed and current ngs projects
Completed and Current NGS Projects

  • ASTM F1387, Performance of Piping and Tubing Mechanically Attached Fittings Standard – Adopted in FY13

  • UL 489D, UL 1066A, and UL 2831 – Circuit Breaker Standards – Published in FY13, Adoption in process

  • AWS B2.1 – 23 New Welding Standards – Development in process

  • IPC (Association Connecting Electronics Industries) – Soldering Standard – Development in process

  • NAVSEA Currently:

    • Adopted approximately 222 NGSs

  • The number of NGSs referenced in our specs and standards is enormous

    • For example: MIL-DTL-24643C (Electric Cable) has 39 references, 25 of which are NGSs
