CAPABILITIES: THE GBCS-L ESM PROVIDES COMMUNICATION INTERCEPT DATA AND EMITTER LINES OF BEARING IN THE HF, VHF, UHF, AND SHF RANGES. IT IS CAPABLE OF ACCURATELY FIXING EMITTER LOCATIONS WHEN USED IN TANDEM WITH TWO OR MORE SIMILAR SYSTEMS. THE GBCS-L ESM IS ALSO INTEROPERABLE WITH LIKE SYSTEMS, INCLUDING THE GROUND-BASED COMMON SENSOR-HEAVY (GBCS-H) AND ADVANCED QUICK FIX (AQF) SYSTEMS. ADDITIONAL CAPABILITIES INCLUDE GEOLOCATING (IN CONCERT WITH OTHER ASSETS) AND COMMUNICATIONS SIGNAL JAMMING (WHEN DEPLOYED WITH THE GBCS-L ELECTRONIC COUNTERMEASURES). C. EMPLOYMENT: THE GBCS-L ESM IS EMPLOYED ARMY WIDE FOR SPECIFIC MILITARY INTELLIGENCE UNITS IN SUPPORT OF THE 2D ARMORED CAVALRY REGIMENT AND AIRBORNE, AIR ASSAULT, AND LIGHT INFANTRY DIVISION UNITS. D. BASIS OF ISSUE: FOUR PER 2D ARMORED CAVALRY REGIMENT AND AIRBORNE, AIR ASSAULT, AND LIGHT INFANTRY DIVISIONS. E. POWER REQUIREMENTS: THE SYSTEM'S POWER CONSUMPTION IS 10 KILOWATTS WHICH IS PROVIDED BY THE HMMWV'S 400-AMPERE, 28-VOLTS, DIRECT CURRENT ALTERNATOR. BACKUP POWER AND AIR CONDITIONING IS PROVIDED BY THE GBCS-L ESM SUPPORT (CHASE) VEHICLE HMMWV (M1097) BY MEANS OF INTERCONNECTING CABLE AND HOSES. F. TRANSPORTATION REQUIREMENTS: THE GBCS-L ESM IS TRANSPORTED ON THE HEAVY-VARIANT HMMWV (M1097). AN ADDITIONAL HEAVY-VARIANT HMMWV SUPPLIES BACKUP ELECTRICAL POWER AND AIR CONDITIONING AND TRANSPORTS ADDITIONAL OPERATORS. THE SYSTEM HAS ROLL-ON/ROLL-OFF CAPABILITY FOR THE C-130 AIRCRAFT AND MAY BE SLING-LOADED BY CH-47 HELICOPTERS. G. PERSONNEL/MAINTENANCE IMPACTS: (1) OPERATOR: TWO 98G MILITARY OCCUPATIONAL SPECIALTY (MOS) PERSONNEL ARE REQUIRED TO OPERATE THIS SYSTEM PER 8-HOUR SHIFT. MINIMUM CREW SIZE IS SIX 98G MOS PERSONNEL. (2) MAINTAINERS: (A) UNIT-LEVEL MAINTENANCE: 31U, 33T, 52C, AND 63B (B) DIRECT SUPPORT MAINTENANCE: 33T, 35E, AND 52C (C) GENERAL SUPPORT MAINTENANCE: 39B, 44B, AND 52C H. SPECIAL NOTES: (1) THIS SYSTEM IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR PUBLICATION IN AR 71-13. (2) CHANGE THE "3 COLLECTION-JAMMING PLT HQS" OR "3 VOICE COLLECTION PLT HQS" PARAGAPH TITLES TO READ: "4 EW PLT HQ". (3) CHANGE THE "3 VOICE COLLECTION TEAMS" PARAGRAPH TITLE TO READ: "4 EW TMS".
