Basis of Issue Plan - BOIP

A. DESCRIPTION: The Special Operations Forces Intelligence Vehicle Variant 1 (SOF IV (V1)) is a deployable intelligence information support system developed for SOF. This system is mounted in transit cases and is referred to as the dehutted system. The system does not have its own generator or environmental control unit but will use power supplied by the unit that is supported. This system does not have a dedicated vehicle to transport it. This system will allow the SOF IV(V1) to be transported when there is not enough aircraft space to ship the complete hutted/vehicle mounted system (Z99960). B. CAPABILITIES: SOF IV will allow SOF to access the extensive data bases already developed to support operations against likely targets, as well as to quickly develop and tailor new databases in response to unexpected threats. This system provides SOF tactical intelligence analysts with a deployable version of Special Operations Command Research, Analysis and Threat Analysis System (SOCRATES). It will allow intelligence personnel to receive, process and manipulate unfinished near-real-time intelligence information, intelligence products, as well as information resident in a variety of national/theater intelligence databases to produce an overall product tailored to the supported commander's essential elements of information. It will also provide for the rapid dissemination of the finished product. C. EMPLOYMENT: SOF IV (V1) will be used by intelligence personnel at the Special Forces Operational Base (SFOB) to collect Intelligence data. D. BASIS OF ISSUE: One SOF IV (V1) in the Support Company of the SF Group. E. POWER REQUIREMENTS: Power required is 10 KW, 120/208 VAC, 50 or 60 Hz. The power will be supplied by the supported unit. F. TRANSPORTATION REQUIREMENTS: The SOF IV (V1) is mounted in transit cases that have two man lift capability. These transit cases can be palletized for shipment on a C-130, or larger aircraft. G. PERSONNEL/MAINTENANCE IMPACTS. (1) OPERATOR: a. Crew Size/MOS: Two 96B, Intelligence Analyst. b. Training Requirements: There is no NET Plan number. Operational and maintenance training will be accomplished through the use of programmed texts, video instruction, mobile training teams (MTT) and on-site courses. There will be a training program within the computer (software tutorial) that is help driven. Technical manuals and materials will be IAW appropriate regulations. Commercially available technical manuals and materials will be evaluated for adequacy by USSOCOM and will be used to maximum extent possible. (2) MAINTAINERS: H. SPECIAL NOTES: (1) This item is appropriate for inclusion in the FMBB. (2) This item is being developed for SOF only. (3) Maintenance for the equipment mounted in transit cases will be performed at depot level. Only operator maintenance will be performed by the user.
