A. DESCRIPTION: THE AN/TLQ-17(V)4 IS AN ECHELON-ABOVE- CORPS (EAC) ELECTRONIC COUNTERMEASURES (ECM) SYSTEM DESIGNED TO COUNTER HIGH FREQUENCY (HF) COMMUNICATIONS. IT IS COMPRISED OF AN AN/TLQ-17A(V)3 TRAFFICJAM SYSTEM CONNECTED TO AN OE-317/TSC-99 HF ANTENNA. THE SYSTEM IS MOUNTED IN A MODIFIED S-250 SHELTER PLACED ON AN M1037 HMMWV. A SECOND HMMWV IS PROVIDED AS A SUPPORT VECHICLE. THE TWO HMMWVS ARE IDENTICAL AND ARE MODIFIED WITH ENVIRONMENTAL AND ELECTRICAL SUPPORT (EES) AND TRAFFICJAM INTERFACE (TI) INSTALLATION KITS. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE TWO HMMWV ARE COMPONENTS OF LIN C30675 WHICH IS LISTED BELOW AS A BOIP MAJOR COMPONENT ITEM. NOTE: THE OE-317/TSC-99 HF ANTENNA IS NOT LISTED IN ASIOE BECAUSE IT DOES NOT HAVE A LIN. THE NSN IS 5895-01-095-6206. BOIP MAJOR COMPONENT ITEMS ARE: LIN GEN-NOMEN QTY/RATIO _____ _________________________________ _________ C30675 COUNTERMEASURES SET: AN/TLQ-17A(V)3 1 B. CAPABILITIES: THE AN/TLQ-17A(V)4 IS USED TO PERFORM ESM AND ECM AGAINST GROUND AND AIRBORNE COMMUNICATIONS IN ITS OPERATING RANGE. IT HAS A SKYWAVE CAPABILITY IN THE FREQUENCY RANGE OF 1.5 - 30 MHZ AND A GROUND WAVE CAPABILITY IN THE FREQUENCY RANGE OF 1.5 TO 80 MHZ. MANUAL SEARCH, SCAN, PRIORITY, AND MONITOR MODES ARE PROVIDED. THE SYSTEM OPERATES ON AMPLITUDE MODULATION (AM) FREQUENCY MODULATION (FM), CONTINUOUS WAVE (CW), AND SINGLE SIDEBAND (SSB) SIGNALS. C. EMPLOYMENT: THE SYSTEM IS EMPLOYED THROUGHOUT THE THEATER FOR MI. D. BASIS OF ISSUE: ONE PER ECM AUGMENTATION TEAM. TWO PER EAC MI SEPERATE SIGINT COMPANY ECM TEAM. E. POWER REQUIREMENTS: THE SYSTEM REQUIRES A 110/208 VAC, 3 PHASE, 400HZ, 3KW POWER SOURCE WHICH IS SUPPLIED BY THE CONVERTER YCV-3967/TLQ-17A(V) RECEIVING 28V DC FROM THE HMMWV ENGINE AND CONVERTING IT TO THE REQUIRED 110/208 VAC, 3 PHASE, 400 HZ POWER. F. TRANSPORTATION REQUIREMENTS: THE MODIFIED M1037 HMMWV (SHELTER) IS THE PRIME MOVER. THE OTHER MODIFIED HMMWV CARRIES PERSONNEL AND EQUIPMENT. BOTH MODIFIED M1037 HMMWV'S (T07543) ARE COMPONENTS OF LIN C30675 WHICH IS A COMPONENT OF THE MAJOR END ITEM. THE SYSTEM IS AIR TRANSPORTABLE. G. PERSONNEL/MAINTENANCE IMPACTS: (1) OPERATOR: 98G, EW/SIGINT INTERCEPTOR, 2 PER SHIFT TOTAL OF 4 PERSONNEL. (2) MAINTAINERS: (A) UNIT: MOS 31U, 33T, 63B, 52C, 63B. (B) DS: MOS 35E, 33T, 52C, 63W. (C) GS: MOS 33T, 52C, 63W. H. SPECIAL NOTES: (1) THIS ITEM IS APPROPRIATE FOR INCLUSION IN AR 71-13.
