Full Time Support Officer Program 


The Full Time Support (FTS) Officer Program consists of Reserve officers on active duty responsible for managing, organizing,
administering, and training the Navy's Reserve Component (RC).  FTS officers are assigned to billets worldwide providing
essential active duty support to the Navy Reserve in the areas of manpower management, personnel administration, mobilization
training, logistics, financial management, facilities management, and aviation support (references MILPERSMAN Articles 1001-020
and 1301-221).

FTS officers receive the same pay and benefits as their Active Component (AC) counterparts, to include an active duty retirement
upon completion of 20 years of satisfactory active duty service.  Depending on the community and eligibility rules, certain
community-specific bonuses and continuation pays are also available for FTS officers.

FTS officers are distinguished from their peers by the assignment of "7" as the last digit of their designator.  The following
designators makeup the FTS officer program:

  • 1117 - Surface Warfare

  • 1127 - Submarine Warfare

  • 1137 - Special Warfare

  • 1147 - Special Operations

  • 1317 - Naval Aviator

  • 1327 - Naval Flight Officer

  • 1207 - Human Resources

  • 1527 - Aerospace Maintenance Duty Officer

  • 3107 - Supply Corps

Information about applying for the FTS Officer Program can be found at the FTS Redesignation Board webpage.  The FTS
Officer Lateral Transfer / Redesignation Boards are held twice a year, typically in April and October.  The program is open
to both active duty officers on the Active Duty List (ADL) as well as Ready Reserve Officers on the Reserve Active Status
List (RASL).  Members of the IRR, with the exception of VTU and SSOs, are not eligible.  For assignment information,
officers should contact the respective FTS Officer Detailer in PERS-46
