Basis of Issue Plan - BOIP
A. DESCRIPTION: Support Van (Tactical Radar Correlator (TRAC)),
LIN Z14981, BOIP M041MB is one of three major items which constitute
the TRAC System. The other two are:
1) Processing Van (TRAC), LIN Z50708, BOIP M041MA
2) TRAC/Modulated Interoperable Surface Terminal (MIST): Data
Link, LIN Z90631, BOIP M041MC.
All three items must be fielded together (1 of each), in order
to accomplish stated TRAC mission. They are collocated on the
battlefield, but the TRAC/MIST: Data Link can be remoted up to 400
meters from the power source. It could be further remoted up to 5km
from the power source by using an additional 5kw generator.
The TRAC Support Van (a single 40 ft., specially designed van)
contains work benches, specially designed built-in-test (BIT)
equipment for fault isolation, repair parts housed in specially
constructed racks and bins, and maintenance work areas for the TRAC
Size: 40 ft. length x 8 ft. height x 8 ft.3 in. width
Component items of the TRAC system are mostly unique,
Non-MIL-STD items. Specific component items of the TRAC Support Van
-> FSCM Shelter, Van, 40 ft ratio 1:1
-> Model C-230-1 ECU (Environmental Control Unit),
Ellis & Watts, 300K BTU/HR ratio 1:1
-> 5059358 SVAN HWCI - Support Van Electrical ratio 1:1
B. CAPABILITIES: The TRAC Support Van personnel will accomplish
all maintenance on the TRAC system, the ECU, the operation and
maintenance of the power generator equipment and all vehicles. The
Support Van will have work benches, specially designed built-in-test
(BIT) equipment for additional fault isolation, and spares/repair
parts housed in specially constructed racks and bins.
C. EMPLOYMENT: The TRAC system is organic to the Imagery
Analysis Co, Ops Bn, MI Bde, both Corps and EAC. Primary use of the
TRAC system is to provide the ground commander with near real-time
access to ASARS-2 (Airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar) U-2R aircraft
sensor image data and the capability to perform mission planning and
collector control in his area of operations. This system is designed
to satisfy the Corps Commander's requirement for timely and accurate
combat information and intelligence. Specific authority to manage
TRAC tasking within the area of operations is delegated to the JTF
(Joint Task Force), Theater, Unified Command, or other level as
D. BASIS OF ISSUE: 1 per Imagery Analysis Co, Ops Bn, Corps MI
Bde and 1 per Imagery Analysis Co, Ops Bn, Echelon Above Corps (EAC)
MI Bde. This BOI is appropriate for inclusion in AR 71-13.
E. POWER REQUIREMENTS: Power requirement for the TRAC Support
Van is 80kva. All TRAC power requirements are satisfied by the Power
Plant, LIN P27821, MJQ-11A (elec. semi-trlr mtd: 200kw, 60hz, 2 gen
set ded), which is documented as ASIOE on this BOIP. The power plant
has two, 200kw, 2-generator sets (for total of 4 generators). Each
of the two, 2-generator sets is 9.5 ft long x 4.2 ft wide x 6.25 ft
high. Each of the two, 2-generator sets weighs 10,260 lbs. and each
is mounted on a low-bed, 2 wheel, (goose neck) 15 T. semi-trailer.
The dimensions of each of the two semi-trailers are 29 ft long x 8.6
ft high and both are pulled by a 5 T. truck tractor, 6x6 (ASIOE LIN
F. TRANSPORTATION REQUIREMENTS: The TRAC Support Van requires 1
5T. truck tractor (ASIOE 0IN X59326) to pull the 40 ft. van and 1 5T.
truck tractor (ASIOE LIN X59326) to pull the power plant's (LIN
P27821) two, 2-generator sets, each mounted on a semi-trailer. (Since
TRAC is fielded at Corps and EAC, and 100% mobility is not required,
1 5T truck tractor can be used to successively move one semi-trailer,
then the other.)
G. PERSONNEL/MAINTENANCE IMPACTS: Personnel for the entire TRAC
system (all three BOIP items) are documented in the Processing Van
BOIP (M041MA), LIN Z50708.
(1) OPERATOR MOS: 350D, 96D
(2) MAINTAINERS: 33T, 52D, 63B, 63S, 63W
(3) The maintenance approach for the TRAC system is that
integrator/maintainer will be responsible for fault isolation,
removal, and replacement down to the line replaceable units (LRU).
All back-up maintenance, which exceeds the integrator/maintainer
capabilities (such as on-site/on-equipment maintenance), and
off-site, off-equipment maintenance, through depot support will be
provided by Army maintainers w/contractor assistance. This is
considered to be the most economical maintenance concept, due to the
limited number of TRAC systems to be fielded. The contractor will
provide field service representatives (FSR) to accompany the fielding
of the equipment and remain on-site during operation.
H. SPECIAL NOTES:
(1) Communication is accomplished via 2 Stu-III phones, LIN
S40645 (located in the Processing Van), which do not appear as ASIOE,
as they are CTA items.
(2) EAC requirements for TRAC equipment are documented as
Base TOE (BTOE) items in the EAC A edition TOE, and will, therefore,
not appear in this BOIP as modernization items.
(3) TRAC camouflage requirements (drape method)
