Surveillance Information Processing Facility
A. DESCRIPTION: The Test/Communication Van V-XX3/TSQ-105
(V) 5 is third 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 Test/Communication Intelligence
(COMINT) 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
Test/COMINT Van, incoming communications are monitored by four
collection operators, raw threat data is received by the
operators who produce and name a file, and prepare a gist of each
incoming signal on an analog tape. Test operations are performed
by use of built-in test equipment. Van dimensions are: Length
527.27 inches, Width 102.5 inches, & Height 96 inches; Weight w/o
chassis is: 26720 pounds. Chassis dimensions are: Length 488.75,
Width 96, & Height 54.75; Weight is 7960 pounds. The Test/COMINT
van requires a dedicated commercial tractor truck for intra-
theater deployment. The analyst van requires 71.5 KW
at 60HZ furnished by the AN/MJQ-34 (LIN Z75545 BOIP M050AI).
B. CAPABILITIES: There are four operator stations and
built in test equipment located in the Test/COMINT Van. 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 71.5 KW
at 60 HZ furnished by the AN/MJQ-34, Z75545, BOIP M050AI (OLD
F. TRANSPORTATION REQUIREMENTS: This facility requires one
Commercial Tractor Truck.
