Overview of SBTP
  • Marine Aviation flight ops management is composed of 2 elements
    • Flight Hour Program (FHP)
    • Sortie-Based Training Program (SBTP)
  • FHP is the budgeting tool
    • Determines funding required to meet Core Model Minimum Requirements (CMMR)
  • SBTP is the commander’s execution tool
    • Tracks execution data against CMMR

new sbtp report layout
New SBTP Report Layout
  • Two basic categories of SBTP data
    • “Unit” data by TMS group
    • “Crew” data by syllabus
  • On Page 1 & 2 reports, these were mixed
  • In M-SHARP they have separate sections
    • The terms “Page 1” and “Page 2” reports do not apply to M-SHARP

  • Automation with M-SHARP
    • HHQ pull vice monthly squadron push
    • Local procedures may vary
  • More data
    • All syllabi (pilots, NFOs, & enlisted aircrew)
    • Core Plus skills
  • More units participating
    • All FRSs except VMFAT-101
      • CMMR requirements not enforced for FRSs
    • All OSA except HMX-1

    • Be sure to include all TMSs & syllabi
    • HMMs include all composite TMSs & syllabi
  • Print out & route to CO/OPSO
    • If edits are needed, return to step 1
  • Once approved by CO/OPSO, submit

  • If a submitted forecast must be modified
    • HHQ must Unsubmit it
    • HHQ or squadron can make edits
    • Squadron must Submit again

T-2.0 “benchmark” for a full T/O squadron established by FHP

Serves as a reference for squadrons when creating their SBTP forecast

FY-2008 numbers have already been transferred to M-SHARP

sbtp permissions
SBTP Permissions
  • Forecasts
    • Only squadrons can Submit a forecast
      • Prevents HHQ from modifying squadron forecast without their knowledge
    • Only HHQ can Unsubmit a forecast
      • Prevents squadrons from modifying their submission without HHQ knowledge
    • Either can edit until it is submitted
  • Execution Report
    • Only accessible to those granted read access
assign sbtp security groups
Assign SBTP Security Groups
  • SBTP Submit/Edit Forecast
    • Only for squadron-level billets
    • CO, OpsO, SBTP manager
    • Possibly: XO, AOpsO, FlightO, M-SHARP Admin
  • SBTP Unsubmit/Edit Forecast
    • Only for billets at group level & above
    • CO, OpsO/G-3T, SBTP manager
    • Possibly: XO, AOpsO, M-SHARP Admin
  • SBTP View Execution Report
    • For anyone who rates access to forecast & actual SBTP data
known data discrepancies
Known Data Discrepancies
  • 3 sets of CMMR data w/ minor discrepancies
    • T&R Manuals
    • M-SHARP
    • Old Page 1 & 2 Reports
  • Example
    • UH-1N T&R requires 3 “EW” CSP Crewchiefs
    • But T&R has no attain/maintain events for it
    • So, the “EW” core skill is not shown in M-SHARP for UH-1N Crewchiefs
for fy 2009 later
For FY-2009 & Later

Squadrons submit forecast by 1 Aug

MAGs review by 8 Aug

WINGs review by 15 Aug

MCIs review by 15 Aug

monthly review process
Monthly Review Process

No action required by squadrons except to keep M-SHARP data accurate

Ensure all discrepancies are reconciled by the 5th working day of the month

On or after the 6th of the month, group and above assumes previous month’s data is accurate unless told otherwise

key question
Key Question

If HHQ can now access squadron-level data, how will they know if it is accurate?

implementation levels
Implementation Levels
  • CO declares unit data accurate
  • Data baselined, daily scheduling & logging flights, NALCOMIS interface
  • Minimum training requirements met
    • At least 1 M-SHARP Admin in Ops
    • Units expected to reach level 1 in 3 months
  • M-SHARP use required, but not trained
  • M-SHARP use not required
current implementation status
Current Implementation Status

Last update: 27 Mar 08

  • Can you edit the SBTP reports manually?
    • Forecast data: yes via Unsubmit/Resubmit
    • Execution data: no
  • If a pilot from Squadron A flies in an aircraft from Squadron B, which unit gets the credit?
    • Hours/sorties show on Squadron B’s SBTP
  • How will deployed hours/sorties get counted?
    • Via SPIN files; counts toward “mother” squadron
  • Will simulator time count toward SBTP?
    • Sim hours counted in “Total Sim Hours” block
    • T&R code(s) logged in sim contribute to CSP
  • How are sorties counted?
    • # sorties = # legs on a NAVFLIR
  • Do augment/staff aircrew count?
    • Determined by Unit Status in personnel attributes
