A. DESCRIPTION: THE AN/TSQ-205 (LIN Z61050) ENHANCED TRACKWOLF COMMUNICATIONS INTELLIGENCE (COMINT) STATION IS MADE UP OF COMMERCIAL OFF THE SHELF EQUIPMENT ASSEMBLIES (COTS). THE AN/TSQ-205 STATION IS MOUNTED IN TWENTY TWO (22) RUGGEDIZED TRANSIT CASES. NO CASE WEIGHS MORE THAN 140 POUNDS. AN ENTIRE STATION WEIGHS 2907 POUNDS, AND HAS A VOLUME OF 298 CUBIC FEET. THE STATION REQUIRES 6KW OF 120/208VAC 60HZ POWER. THREE (3) AN/TSQ-205 RECEIVING STATIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR AN EAC SIGINT COMPANY. THE STATION CONTAINS THE FOLLOWING LIN AND NON-LIN COMPONENTS: Z70236: PRECISION LT WGT GPS RCVR RADIO FREQUENCY PROCESSING SYSTEM RED/BLACK PROCESSING EQUIPMENT COMMUNICATIONS MODEM KIV-7 COMSEC DEVICE MULTIPLEXER SECURE LAN OPERATOR/ANALYST WORKSTATION GROUP UNIX LAPTOP SUN CPARC 5 (9) SECURE UNIX LAN PRINTER BLACK BASEBAND PROCESSING EQUIPMENT PRECISION ANTENNA ARRAY LST-5E TACTICAL SATCOM RADIO SET MULTIMETER MAINTENANCE KIT, ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT B. CAPABILITIES: IN A STAND ALONE OPERATION EACH AN/TSQ-205 ENHANCED TRACKWOLF STATION IS CAPABLE OF PROVIDING TWENTY FOUR (24) HOUR A DAY COMINT COLLECTION, ANALYSIS, REPORTING AND RADIO DIRECTION FINDING (DF) IN THE HIGH FREQUENCY (HF) SPECTRUM. NETWORKING OF ALL THREE STATIONS PROVIDES AN INTERNAL GEO- LOCATIONAL CAPABILITY. ENHANCED TRACKWOLF CAN ALSO INTERFACE WITH OTHER TACTICAL AND NATIONAL HFDF SYSTEMS TO INCREASE THE ACCURACY OF LOCATIONAL DATA OF HOSTILE EMITTERS. THE SYSTEM IS CAPABLE OF OPERATING IN A TEMPERATURE RANGE OF 32 DEGREES TO 120 DEGREES FARENHEIT WITHOUT CLIMATE CONTROLLS C. EMPLOYMENT: AT TIER I EACH STATION WILL ONLY DEPLOY WITH THE COMMAND AND CONTROL, SUPERVISOR PERSONNEL AND COLLECTORS, TRANSIT CASES, 2 HMMWVS WITH TRAILER, SATCOM COMMUNICATIONS EQUIPMENT AND SYSTEM SPARES REQUIRED TO CONDUCT AUSTERE COLLECTION, ANALYSIS, REPORTING AND DIRECTION FINDING OPERATIONS FOR APPROXIMATELY TWO WEEKS. OPERATOR PERSONNEL WILL BE ABLE TO PERFORM LIMITED REPLACEMENT OF FAILED CIRCUIT CARDS USING BUILT IN TEST EQUIPMENT TO ISOLATE FAULTS. POWER WILL BE FROM COMMERCIAL SOURCES WHERE AVAILABLE OR FROM INVERTED POWER USING 28 VDC VEHICLE POWER. EACH AN/TSQ-205 STATIONS MAY BE DEPLOYED TO DIFFERENT THEATERS AT TIER I. AT TIER II THE UL MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL AND EQUIPMENT AND POWER GENERATORS WILL BE DEPLOYED TO THE STATIONS LOCATION FOR LONGER OPERATIONS. INTERFACE WITH THE OTHER AN/TSQ-205 VIA TAC SATCOM OR AUTODIN MAY BE ESTABLISHED TO PROVIDE THE BASELINE FOR GEO- LOCATION. AT TIER III THE UNIT HEADQUARTERS INCLUDING DS MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL, EQUIPMENT AND POWER GENERATORS WILL DEPLOY TO THE STATION LOCATED NEAR THE CENTER OF THE AN/TSQ-205 BASELINE. INTERFACE THROUGH HF, UHF SATCOM, AUTODIN OR TROJAN SPIRIT II WITH OTHER TACTICAL AND NATIONAL SYSTEMS WILL BE ESTABLISHED. D. BASIS OF ISSUE: THREE AN/TSQ-205 STATIONS TO THE MILITARY INTELLIGENCE COMPANY (SIGINT) (EAC) (ET), MILITARY INTELLIGENCE BATTALION (SIGINT) (EAC), MILITARY INTELLIGENCE BRIGADE (EAC). THE AN/TSQ-205 STATIONS DISPLACE ALL EQUIPMENT ASSOCIATED WITH THE OBSOLETE OUTS SYSTEM, AND ARE DOCUMENTED AS BASE ITEMS FOR TOE 34617A100. E. POWER REQUIREMENTS: 6 KW OF 120/208 VAC FROM COMMERCIAL OR TACTICAL GENERATORS. DURING AUSTERE DEPLOYMENTS CAN OPERATE ON 28 VDC POWER PROVIDED BY THE HMMWV's USING A COTS INVERTER MOUNTED IN THE BED'S OF LINS T61494 AND T61562. F. TRANSPORTATION REQUIREMENTS: CAN BE TRANSPORTED IN THE HOLD OF COMMERCIAL OR MILITARY AIRCRAFT TO INCLUDE THE ARMY STANDARD FIXED WING AIRCRAFT, THE C-12, ON AND OFF ROAD VEHICLES, RAIL 0R SHIP. A TOTAL OF TEN (10) HHMWV AND ONE (1) 2-1/2 TON TRUCK IS REQUIRED TO SUPPORT THE THREE AN/TSQ-205 STATIONS. G. PERSONNEL/MAINTENANCE IMPACTS. (1) OPERATOR: FOR TWENTY FOUR (24) HOUR OPERATIONS, EACH AN/TSQ-205 STATION REQUIRES TWENTY SEVEN (27) COLLECTOR / ANALYST PERSONNEL. THESE ARE: 6 SIGNALS INTELLIGENCE ANALYST 98C 3 EMITTER LOCATOR/IDENTIFIER 98D 6 VOICE INTERCEPTORS 98G 9 MORSE INTERCEPTORS 98H 3 NON-MORSE INTERCEPTOR 98K 27 TOTAL OPERATORS (2) MAINTAINERS: (A) UNIT LEVEL: 2 EW/I TACTICAL SYSTEM REPAIRERS, MOS 33T,PER AN/TSQ-205. (B) DIRECT SUPPORT: 2 EW/I TACTICAL SYSTEMS REPAIRES, MOS 33T, PER 3 AN/TSQ-205. H. SPECIAL NOTES: THE AN/TSQ-205 STATION FORMS THE BASE OF THE AN/TSQ-199 RECEIVING SYSTEM, SPECIAL PURPOSE WHICH WILL BE EVOLVE AS EXPANDED CAPABILITIES ARE DEVELOPED. ASSOCIATED SUPPORT ITEMS OF EQUIPMENT DOCUMENTED IN TOE AS BASE ITEMS.
