Surveillance Information Processing Facility
A. DESCRIPTION: The Processing/Electronic Intelligence Van
(V-XX4/TSQ-105(V) 5) is the fourth 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 PROC/ELINT Van is
used with three other systems to observe, analyze, and process
transmissions from the AN/ARW-83 Airborne Relay Facility (V) 6
(ARF). The total system provides signal intelligence (Near real-
time information) to tactical commanders to include locations of
deployed hostile forces. The PROC/ELINT Van has eight operator
work stations and two supervisory work stations. The work
stations monitor incoming sensor data. Raw data is received by
the operators who produce and name a file, and prepare a gist of
each incoming signal. Each operator records the incoming signal
on an analog tape. Van dimensions are: Length 527.25 inches,
Width 101.5 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 PROC/ELINT van requires
one dedicated commercial truck for intra-theater deployment.
The PROC/ELINT facility requires 30.75 KW at 60HZ furnished
by the AN/MJQ-34 (LIN Z75545 BOIP M050AI).
B. CAPABILITIES: The PROC/ELINT van has eight operator
work stations and two supervisory work stations. 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 and provides a NBC protected
environment for the operators. 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 30.75 KW
at 60 HZ furnished by the AN/MJQ-34, Z75545, BOIP M050AI (OLD
F. TRANSPORTATION REQUIREMENTS: This facility requires one
Commerical Tractor Truck.
