A. DESCRIPTION: THE GROUND BASED COMMON SENSOR-HEAVY (GBCS-H) CONSISTS OF A MISSION ELECTRONICS SUITE INSTALLED IN AN ENCLOSURE AND MOUNTED ON AN XM5 ELECTRONIC FIGHTING VEHICLE SYSTEM (EFVS) TRACKED CARRIER. MISSION COMPONENTS PROVIDE THE CAPABILITY TO DETECT, IDENTIFY, LOCATE WITH TARGETING ACCURACY, PROCESS, AND REPORT ON SIGNAL ACTIVITY IN THE MF TO SHF FREQUENCY RANGE. GBCS-H ALSO PROVIDES A STATE OF THE ART COMMUNICATIONS JAMMING CAPABILITY. IT IS CAPABLE OF NETTING WITH UP TO 15 OTHER COMPATIBLE SYSTEMS FOR COMPLETE COVERAGE OF THE COMMANDER'S AREA OF OPERATIONS. GBCS-H CAN USE WORLDWIDE COMMERCIAL AND STANDARD ARMY POWER SOURCES. GBCS-H IS USED BY TACTICAL COMMANDERS FOR ELECTRONIC SURVEILLANCE, TARGETING LOCATIONS, AND COMMUNICATIONS JAMMING OF ENEMY EMITTERS. THE GBCS-H CONSISTS OF THE FOLLOWING COMPONENTS: LIN/NSN/PN Z33965 INSTALLATION KIT: MK2520/VSQ-1 (GENERAL 1:1 PURPOSE USER) EPLRS Z98732 EPLRS SURFACE VEHICLE RADIO SET: 1:1 AN/VSQ-XXX(V)3 (1553) MODIFIED M993 CARRIER (XM5 EFVS COMPONENT) 1:1 ENCLOSURE (XM5 EFVS COMPONENT) 1:1 MAST GROUP (M1070 EFVS COMPONENT) 1:1 AIR-CONDITIONER (XM5 EFVS COMPONENT) 1:1 PRIMARY POWER UNIT (XM5 EFVS COMPONENT) 1:1 BACKUP POWER UNIT (XM5 EFVS COMPONENT) 1:1 BIOLOGICAL-CHEMICAL UNIT (XM5 EFVS COMPONENT) 1:1 ANALYSIS UNIT 1:1 TUNER, DIGITAL 1:1 ANTENNA, MOBILE OPERATIONS 1:1 DF ANTENNA ARRAY 1:1 CHALS-X ANTENNA ARRAY 1:1 CHALS-X RECEIVER 1:1 CHALS-X PROCESSOR 1:1 ANTENNA, MOBILE OPS 1:1 ANTENNA ARRAY 1:1 WORKSTATION PROCESSOR 3:1 DISPLAY MONITOR 3:1 MISSION COMPUTER 1:1 VOICE CONTROL CENTER 1:1 HEADSET NOISE CANCELLOR 3:1 LOCAL AREA NETWORK 1:1 NORTH SENSING DEVICE 1:1 PRINTER 1:1 ELINT ANTENNA 1:1 ELINT SIGNAL PROCESSOR 1:1 ELINT RECEIVER PROCESSOR 1:1 DATA LINK ANTENNA (NRP) 1:1 TRIPLEXER AMPLIFIER 1:1 MISSION CONTROL DATA LINK 1:1 MISSION EQUIPMENT CONTROL ANTENNA 1:1 ECM LOW POWER TRANSMITTER UNIT 1:1 ECM AMPLIFIER UNIT 2:1 HF FILTER UNIT 2:1 VHF FILTER UNIT 2:1 HF COUPLER UNIT 1:1 VHF COUPLER UNIT 1:1 ANTENNA ARRAY 1:1 GPS ANTENNA 1:1 GPS RECEIVER (MAGR) 1:1 GPS CONTROL DISPLAY UNIT 1:1 INTERNAL NAV SYSTEM 1:1 DC CONVERTER 1:1 CLOCK, REAL TIME 1:1 DIGITAL TEMP STORAGE REC (DTSR) AN/UYH-15 2:1 INTERFERENCE CANCELLER 1:1 C5154857 RF DISTRIBUTION UNIT (57958) 1:1 C5154800 ACQUISITION UNIT (57958) 2:1 C5154839 ACQ/ANAL CTRL (57958) 1:1 351-8654-502 KEYBOARD W/ TRACKBALL 3:1 5821-01-301-5620RECEIVER-TRANSMITTER RADIO: RT-1288A/ARC-164(V) 1:1 5821-01-070-4433CONTROL RADIO SET C-10547/ARC-164(V) 1:1 5875-01-258-8013MOUNTING BASE, ELECT MT-6017A/ARC-164(V) 1:1 C5170375 HOST INTERFACE UNIT (57958) 1:1 C5154857 RF DISTRIBUTION UNIT (57958) 1:1 B. CAPABILITIES: WILL PROVIDE COMMUNICATIONS INTERCEPT DATA IN THE HF, MF, EMF, VHF, AND, UHF RANGES, PROVIDE VHF, EHF, AND SHF EMITTER LINES OF BEARING, DIRECTION FINDING AND COMMUNICATIONS SIGNAL JAMMING. WHEN OPERATING IN TANDEM WITH TWO OR MORE SIMILAR SYSTEMS, THE GBCS-H IS CAPABLE OF ACCURATELY FIXING EMITTER LOCATIONS. THE GBCS-H WILL INTERFACE WITH OTHER IEW SYSTEMS TO PROVIDE SURVEILLANCE, DIRECTION FINDING, TARGET LOCATION, AND COMMUNICATIONS JAMMING RELATED TO ENEMY GROUND, AIRBORNE, AND OTHER SELECTED OR TRANSMITTED SIGNALS WITHIN THE SYSTEM'S OPERATING RANGE. THIS SYSTEM WILL REPLACE THE FOLLOWING IEW SYSTEMS AND THEIR ASSOCIATED SUPPORT ITEMS OF EQUIPMENT: AN/TSQ-138(TRAILBLAZER) LIN M21948 AN/TRQ-32A(V)2(TEAMMATE) LIN Z61894 AN/TLQ-17A(V)3(TRAFFIC JAM) LIN C30675 C. EMPLOYMENT: THE SYSTEM IS ASSIGNED TO MILITARY INTELLIGENCE UNITS IN SUPPORT OF ARMORED AND MECHANIZED UNITS AND IS CAPABLE OF INTEROERABILITY WITH LIKE SYSTEMS ACROSS THE FLOT. NORMAL OPERATIONS WILL INVOLVE SIX SYSTEMS IN SUPPORT OF A DIVISION FRONT AND FOUR IN SUPPORT OF AN ACR. D.
