Aviation Storekeeper Information Tracking System (ASKIT) and Aviation Cost Evaluation System (ACES)
Aviation Storekeeper Information Tracking System ASKIT
ASKIT is a program in use by all Navy and Marine Aviation units to report fuel and squadron maintenance funds, flight hours, gallons expenditures, and aircraft counts. The ASKIT program is used for creating the Budget OPTAR Report (BOR) for the COMNAVAIRPAC and COMNAVAIRLANT Operations and Maintenance, Navy (OMN) funds. It reports obligation data, hours flown, and fuel gallons consumed for Naval Aviation units, which includes all units currently under COMMARFORPAC and COMMARFORCOM.
ACES is the joint flying hour cost collection system used by Commander, Naval Air Forces, U. S. Pacific Fleet (COMNAVAIRPAC) and the Commander, Naval Air Forces, U. S. Atlantic Fleet (COMNAVAIRLANT). The ACES application is essential for the effective management of the Flying Hour Program (FHP) and for all up-line reporting requirements for the type commander staff, subordinate commands, and higher authority. ACES functionality covers three major areas: flying hour execution, budget, and planning. As a management tool, the crux of the ACES system is its ability to translate costs between the budget at the Program Element (PE) and Type Model Series (TMS) level by Activity Group / Sub-Activity Group – Special Interest Item (AG/SAG SII), to the execution (i.e., organizational) of resources at the unit/consumer level. COMNAVAIRPAC, COMNAVAIRLANT, Marine Forces Pacific (COMMARFORPAC) and United States Marine Corps Forces Command (COMMARFORCOM) are the principal users of ACES from their site locations. Commander, Naval Air Force Reserve (COMNAVAIRRES) and Chief of Naval Air Training (CNATRA) are also supported by the ACES application. The ACES application supports four Aviation Type Commanders.
