The PEETE index (fig. 7-5) is a guide that fleet
personnel use to identify portable electrical/electronics
test equipment required to support prime electronic,
electrical, IC, weapons, and reactor instrumentation
systems. This test equipment index does not, in anyway,
supersede or modify the SPETERL, nor does it
authorize procurement of, or requisition of, items listed
in the SPETERL.
Figures 7-6 and 7-7 are samples of sections and
appendices of the PEETE index. In the example,
the GPETE information pertains to a DDG-51 class
ship having an AN/PRC-10 with a SCAT code of
4369. Follow the example through each of the
sections and appendices. The PEETE index will be

Test Equipment Requirements List
The SPETERL is your allowance list for PEETE.
The quantity of equipment for each SCAT is based upon
support requirements of your ships configuration of
prime electronic, electrical, IC, weapon and reactor
instrumentation equipment and systems, and depends
upon factors such as the following:
Location of prime equipments and systems
Number of these prime equipments and systems
Portability of the test equipment
Number of personnel who use the test equipment
Frequency of use of test equipment
Ability to share test equipment among different
Several sources of information are used to develop
the SPETERL. First, cognizant naval activities provide
information concerning prime equipments/systems and
the PEETE required to support them. Next, NAVSEA
adds this information to the database used to prepare the
SPETERL. The database is then compared to the
configuration of the ship as reported by SCLSIS teams
and other sources. Finally, from this comparison, the
SPETERL is produced, showing allowances of PEETE,
quantities on hand, and similar information.
To be of use to you, the SPETERL must be valid.

inventory and configuration data maintained in the
Weapon Systems File (WSF). This database must be
continually updated to reflect configuration changes as
they occur. Between validations by SCLSIS, the
database is updated with changes reported by ships
force personnel on OPNAV Form 4790/CK
submissions. Information on configuration changes
reported by ships force personnel to SCLSIS is
provided to NAVSEA, and the SPETERL is updated to
reflect current configuration and required test
equipment support changes.
SCLSIS is the designated system responsible for
maintaining the configuration status reported by the
fleet. The SCLSIS data is maintained in a central
file-the WSF at Ships Parts Control Center (SPCC),
Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Supply and
maintenance support managers depend on this central
file for information to provide support to the fleet.
Additionally, since the PEETE listed in the COSAL is
based upon quantities on board, any quantity changes
in PEETE must be reported in the same manner.
