CHAPTER ONE
102. NAVIGATION AND COMMUNICATIONS EQUIPMENT
The military has developed a nomenclature system to identify the various types of electronic
equipment in the military inventory. The Joint Communication Electronic Nomenclature System
("AN" system), formerly known as the Joint Army Navy Nomenclature System, was designed so
a designation indicates information pertinent to the equipment. The designation indicates the
designed installation of the gear, the type of equipment, and its purpose. Civilian equipment
designations, however, do not conform to the "AN" system.
A designation that follows the "AN" system begins with the letters AN. This is followed by a
slash and then a three-letter group. The three letters indicate the general nature of the
installation, type of equipment, and purpose, respectively. Following the three-letter group is a
number and possibly a letter which indicates the specific model. An example of a designation
code is AN/ARC-159V. This code indicates that this piece of gear would be a piloted aircraft
radio for communication (receiving and transmitting) (Figure 1-1).
Figure 1-1 Joint Communication Electronic Nomenclature System
Air navigation and communications radios operate over a wide range of radio frequencies which
are measured in cycles per second or Hertz (Hz). A Hertz frequency number can extend into the
billions, so to simplify the writing of such large numbers, a prefix is used. The two prefixes used
to identify the frequency ranges most commonly used in aviation are kilo (k) for 1000 Hz and
