provides an excellent means of documenting a sight
inventory of the item. Refer to Afloat Supply
Procedures, NAVSUP Publication 485, chapter 6,
section V, subsection I, 6092, for the procedures on filing
out the NAVSUP Form 306.
2. Prepare a second inventory, known as a test
equipment status inventory, along with the NAVSUP
Form 306. You can prepare this inventory on standard,
ruled 5 x 8-inch index cards, as shown in figure 7-4.
The example shown is a reference record of SCAT at
allowance. (SCAT codes are explained below.) All
items of test equipment for a particular SCAT are
listed on this card. The example shown is for SCAT
code 4369. When you prepare a card, type in the SCAT
code, SCAT description, allowance quantity, and
headers (model, serial, subcustody, and remarks).
Then use a pencil to write the information under each
header, because the information is subject to change.
File each card in SCAT number order under one of the
SCAT at allowance (the example shown in figure
7-4 falls into this category, with three items
allowed and three items listed.)
Zero SCAT on board, GINO (GPETE initial
outfitting) 72 Cog
Zero SCAT on board, GEIR, (GPETE end-item
replacement) 72 Cog
Zero SCAT on board, Not 72 Cog
Under Allowance, GINO 72 Cog
Under Allowance, GEIR 72 Cog
Under Allowance, Not 72 Cog
Keep this second inventory up-to-date
the NAVSUP Form 306.
Subcategory (SCAT) Codes
SCAT codes are four-digit subcategory codes used
to identify a range of measurements by functional
category. Test equipment is assigned SCAT codes in the
4000 - 4999 series of numbers. SCAT codes are
normally used wherever references are made to test
equipment. Youll find SCAT codes in the PEETE index
and in NAVAIR 16-1-525. They are also listed in the
Shore Test Equipment Index (STEAPShore Test
Equipment Allowance Program), which assigns shore
family groups (SFGs) and provides a method of
grouping shore electronic test equipment of similar
