CHAPTER 1

GENERAL - NSTM PUBLICATIONS INDEX AND USER GUIDE

SECTION 1. INTRODUCTION

001-1.1

PURPOSE

556-1.1.1

The purpose of the Naval Ships’ Technical Manual (NSTM) , is to provide technical information

to personnel engaged in the supervision, operation, or maintenance of ships of the United States Navy. The vari- ous chapters and volumes of the NSTM contain detailed administrative and technical instructions that amplify U.S. Navy Regulations and other authoritative documents. These instructions are designed to assist afloat person- nel in the satisfactory management of ships and shipboard machinery and equipment in order to achieve opti- mum performance throughout each ship’s life cycle and to ensure readiness for any assigned mission. The NSTM is not intended to be a compendium of design and engineering information, nor an all-encompassing docu-

ment covering all ramifications of shipboard equipment .

556-1.1.2

When conflict exists between the NSTM and any other related document, such conflict shall be for-

warded by TMDER for resolution (see paragraph 001-2.8). Pending resolution, the document related to a specific

equipment/system normally will take precedence.
