Navy upgrades Web app to monitor sailors' fitness

Recent upgrades to a Web application that tracks physical readiness are helping Navy brass get a true picture of the overall fitness levels of sailors.

The Physical Readiness Information Management System, which has been in use since October 2002, recently gained read-only access and updated guidelines for reporting procedures.

All sailors must undergo frequent physical fitness assessments, and command fitness leaders must enter each sailor's assessment into PRIMS within 30 days. Plus, fitness leaders can share sailors' records with senior officers in a read-only format.

"The purpose of PRIMS is to make the whole administration of the physical readiness program easier for the command and for the individual," said Lt. Cmdr. Mike Criqui, physical readiness program manager for the Navy Morale, Welfare and Recreation Division, Navy Personnel Command in Millington, Tenn.

Command fitness leaders can use the system to update a sailor's individual records, to receive and transfer members' records, or to create specialized reports for his or her command. Other features of the system include fitness tracking, administrative warnings and calculations for body fat measurement.
