Skill Level 1
Standards: Determined the correct magnetic azimuth to the designated point within three degrees using the compass-to-cheek method, and within ten degrees using the center-hold method.
» Land Nav Task 6 - Determine the Elevation of a Point on the Ground Using a Map
Standards: Determined the elevation of the designated point to within half the value of the contour interval.
» Land Nav Task 7 - Determine a Location on the Ground by Terrain Association
Standards: Determined the six-digit coordinate of your location with a 100-meter tolerance within seven minutes.
» Land Nav Task 8 - Measure Distance on a Map
Standards: 1. Determined the straight-line distance, in meters, between two points, with no more than five percent error. 2. Determined the road (curved line) distance, in meters, between two points, with no more than ten percent error.
» Land Nav Task 9 - Convert Azimuths
Standards: Converted the given magnetic azimuth to a grid azimuth and the given grid azimuth to a magnetic azimuth without error.
» Land Nav Task 10 - Orient a Map Using a Lensatic Compass
Standards: Oriented the map to the ground using a compass so the north-seeking arrow of the compass was within 3 degrees (20 mils) of the angle shown in the grid-magnetic (G-M) angle of the declination diagram shown on the map.
» Land Nav Task 11 - Orient a Map to the Ground by Map-Terrain Association
Standards: Oriented the map to within 30 degrees of north.
» Land Nav Task 12 - Locate an Unknown Point on a Map and on the Ground by Intersection
Standards: Determined the 100,000-meter square identification letters and six-digit coordinates of the object or terrain feature to within 100 meters.
» Land Nav Task 13 - Locate an Unknown Point on a Map and on the Ground by Resection
Standards: Determined the 100,000 meter square identification letters and six-digit coordinates of your location to within 100 meters of the actual grid coordinates.
» Land Nav Task 14 - Determine Direction without a Compass
Standards: Identified north and east within 15 degrees.
» Land Nav Task 15 - Determine Azimuths Using a Protractor
Standards: Determined the grid azimuth (in mils or degrees) from your location (point A) to point B to within 1 degree or 20 mils.
» Land Nav Task 16 - Compute Back Azimuths
Standards: Determined the back azimuth of a given azimuth to the exact degree or mils.
