WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Navy announced Oct. 4 the rollout of the "OPNAV Uniform" app for iOS and Android mobile devices to provide information on how and when to wear the Navy Working Uniform (NWU) Type III.
The app covers the wear rules for NWU Type IIIs released Aug. 31 in NAVADMIN 214/17. It also provides photos illustrating the different uniform items and how to wear them.
The U.S. Navy's Sea Warrior Mobility Program (PMW 240) developed the app along with Tracen Technologies, Inc.
Sailors can provide their inputs for improvements through the feedback section of the app. The Uniform Matters Office and PMW 240 Mobility Program will continue to work on improving the app to address more uniform components in future updates.
The app is available for download through the Navy App Locker at https://www.applocker.navy.mil/#!/apps, and iTunes and Google Play online stores. To find the free app, search "OPNAV Uniform" in the app stores or in your web browser.
