TR's CS-1 Sets Standard for Communication Readiness

TR's CS-1 Sets Standard for Communication Readiness

By Journalist 2nd Class Stephen Murphy, USS Theodore Roosevelt Public Affairs.

Aboard USS Theodore Roosevelt -- (NNS) March 2, 2006 -- USS Theodore Roosevelt’s (TR) (CVN 71) CS-1 division of USS Theodore Roosevelt's (CVN 71) Combat Systems Department has set a higher precedence for all other Message Center (MAINCOMM) divisions throughout the fleet.

Souda Bay, Crete, Greece (Feb. 22, 2006) – The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) heads to sea following a logistics stop on the Greek island of Crete.

During TR’s current deployment, CS-1 received a rating of 98 percent during a Comprehensive Communications Assessment for Communication Readiness certification (CRC).

The assessment served to evaluate the ship’s overall communications ability to process various types of outgoing and incoming record communications under simulated wartime conditions. The team was also evaluated on its ability to execute a comprehensive Operational Planning (OPLAN) as a total systems approach of external communications.

“Their performance during CRC showed how well the Sailors of CS-1 are able to complete their mission of providing communications for TR,” said Chief Information Systems Technician (SW/AW) Nancy Smogoleski, CS-1 Division leading chief petty officer. “From being able to help maintain mission readiness to providing the ability for Sailors to talk with loved ones back home, their skills have been beneficial to all of TR’s personnel throughout the cruise.”

Prior to deployment, CS-1 also achieved success during TR’s Component Unit Exercise (COMPTUEX) and Joint Taskforce exercise (JTFX) by receiving a proficiency rating of 97 percent.

“From COMPTUX and throughout this deployment, the division has been phenomenal,” said Ens. George Harris, CS-1 division officer. “They have been kind of like a baseball team. COMTUEX and JTFX was our spring training, and during this deployment we made it to the World Series and were victorious.”

Known as the “Eyes, Ears, and voice of TR,” the 32 personnel who make up CS-1 provide reliable and secure communications for TR’s embarked staffs, air wing and ship’s company.

The division is directly involved in the strategic, tactical, and operational areas of warfare planning, and logistics for TR and the rest of TR Carrier Strike Group. This encompasses more than 350 classified and unclassified strategic and tactical voice and data circuits, message traffic, NIPRNET/SIPRNET connectivity, and telephone systems.

Additionally, CS-1 enhances the morale of TR’s Sailors through Internet, e-mail, and Sailor-phone service access. During TR’s current deployment, CS-1 has used its teleconferencing capabilities to broadcast 39 live video teleconference courses from Old Dominion University, and 62 live family video teleconferences, allowing TR Sailors to see and speak with their families face-to-face while underway. The technology has also been used to conduct 250 tele-conference meetings for TR’s ship’s company and embarked staff.

“We are your Verizon, AT&T, and AOL all rolled into one,” said Harris. “Without us, there wouldn’t be any communication.”
