The ECNI Watch
Amidst the quiet hum of the radar repeaters situated in a dimly lit space sits the ever vigilant
radarman. His job: keep the bridge continually informed of the tactical situation. Although not
always vigilant and not always informed, he is, nevertheless, a valuable member of the ship's
The basic functions of CIC have been succinctly described as collection evaluation, and
dissemination. A radarman collects the information by radar, radio telephone and other pieces of
electronic gear. ln order for this information to be of anyvalue, however, it must be assembled into
some meaningful form and interpreted. This is evaluation. Dissemination is the process by which the
information is distributed to the ship's vital areas-principally the bridge. CIC stands as one of the
most complex centers of the ship. In order to cope with the functioning of his numerous pieces of
equipment in addition to the influx of tremendous amounts of information the radarman must keep
an alert and flexible mind.
Throughout the deployment the men in CIC did a commendable job. They aided in gunfire
support, prevented collisions, kept abreast of hostile contacts, enabled the ship to rescue downed
pilots, and men overboard to name a few. It is to them this portion of the cruise book is dedicated.

The messages and signals which a U.S. Navy ship sends and receives in a month's time fill several
OC Div-Operations, Communications, is the division which sends, receives, processes, distributes,
records, and maintains these messages.
ln addition, the division's signalman and radiomen must maintain, with the help of the ship's
electronics technicians, a vast array of equipment. Some jobs are simple, some complex. Some
require a sledgehammer, some a pair of jeweler's tweezers. Some jobs require both. But 24 hours a
day, at sea, the radiomen and signalmen of OC Division use their unique brand of Navy ingenuity to
provide communications for the ship, Captain, and crew.
