ACQUISITION PHASE: MS

PE & LINE #:

DESCRIPTION: The CINC TMD cells integrate existing intelligence information and analysis applications to provide situational awareness of current TMD activities on the battlefield. TMD cells augment the existing capability of each CWS Operations Center. Each cell is configured to meet the specific needs of each Theater. Each TMD cell consists of communications equipment and software applications that enable an operator to monitor the TMD related activity throughout a theater. Each cell can be configured to receive and process messages from JTAGS, CTAPS, SIDS, TIBS, TDDS (TRAP), TADIL-A, TADIL-B, JMCIS (OTCIXS, OTH-GOLD) and STACCS. Currently three cells are fielded - USEUCOM, USCENTCOM and USFK. EUCOM is a mobile configuration (HWWMV/SICPS), CENTCOM is a transit case configuration and USFK is a tablet of version 1. In its current configuration, the CENTCOM/USFK cells are soldier operated and contractor maintained. EUCOM is now primarily soldier supported with minimal contractor support

TRANSPORTATION CHARACTERISTICS / LIMITATIONS: All cells are C130 Deployable. EUCOM cell carries organic generator power, whereas CENTCOM/USFK cells do not. All can adapt to any power available within AOR.
