Surveillance Information Processing Facility
A. DESCRIPTION: The Computer/Communication Van (V-XX2/TSQ-
105 (V) 5) is the second of four specially constructed electronic
shelters which make up the Surveillance Information Processing
Facility of the GUARDRAIL/COMMON SENSOR (GR/CS) System 4
Integrated Processing Facility (IPF). The Computer/Communication
Van is used with three other systems to observe, analyze, and
process transmissions from the AN/ARW-83 (V) 6 Airborne Relay
Facility (ARF). The total system provides signal intelligence
(Near real-time information) to tactical commanders to include
locations of deployed hostile forces. In the Computer/
Communication Van, is the computer group and three Electronic
Intelligence Group (ELINT) operators positions, who are used to
monitor, analyze and process ELINT information. Friendly/user
messages/reports are sent and received here. The communication
links are capable of sending and receiving secure messages.
These communication links also serve as a back-up capability for
transmitting reports when there are no aircraft airborne or the
link between the aircraft and users's tactical communication
terminal is disrupted. The computer information from the four
vans is processed by the V-XX2/TSQ-105 (V) 5 computer systems.
Van dimensions are: Length 524.75 inches, Width 102.5 inches, &
Height 96 inches; Weight w/o chassis 24320 pounds. Chassis
dimensions are: Length 488.75, Width 96, & Height 54.75; Weight
is 7960 pounds. The Computer Van requires one dedicated
commercial tractor truck for intra-theater
deployment. The Computer Van requires 71.75 KW at 60HZ furnished
by the AN/MJQ-34 (LIN Z75545 BOIP M050AI).
B. CAPABILITIES: The computer van has work stations for
the computer group and three ELINT operators. It is world-wide
deployable except by rail. Maintainers are MOS 33R. Electrical
power for the system is provided by the AN/ MJQ-26. It is
capable of 24 hour operations in a NBC protected environment.
Corps support is required for intra-theater deployment of the
GS/CS System. Skid mounted air conditioners degrade mobility.
User communication requirements are UHF, FM and VOW.
C. EMPLOYMENT: This system is employed only to the
Military Intelligence Brigade, Aerial Exploitation Battalion,
D. BASIS OF ISSUE: One Per AEB, CORPS (MI).
E. POWER REQUIREMENTS: This facility operates on 71.75 KW
at 60 HZ furnished by the AN/MJQ-34, Z75545, BOIP M050AI (OLD
F. TRANSPORTATION REQUIREMENTS: This facility requires one
Commercial Tractor Truck and one S74353 Semi Trailer Van.
