Note:

Enlisted personnel do not have ranks. Instead, the term is “rating”. This is depicted in their insignia by the number of stripes and/or arcs displayed. Their specialty. i.e. “Gravitics Technician”, is known as their “rate”, and is depicted on their insignia by the device centered over their rating stripes. A chart of these devices can be seen on the “Ratings” page. E-1 to E-3 ratings are referred by their rates, i.e. “Electronics Tech First Wanderman.” E-4 to E-6 Petty Officers are referred to as “mates”, i.e. “Gunner’s Mate Harkness.”
