CBOCE02 – Deployable Electric Power Generation/Distribution Systems

DESCRIPTION: Tests and validates the suitability of commercial electric power generation and distribution equipment to replace existing Air Force Harvest Falcon/Eagle bare base power systems. This project will provide a new system design that will employ the best commercial equipment, and will provide interoperability with existing power equipment. Primary focus is to reduce the airlift required to deploy Falcon/Eagle. Initial effort is to replace existing prime power generators and secondary distribution centers, the two heaviest/bulkiest components in the current power system inventory. Follow-on efforts will replace other power system components, and emergency/backup generators.

JUSTIFICATION: Provides affordable solution to the critical requirement to reduce airlift needed to deploy Harvest Falcon/Eagle. This need voiced by CINCUSTRANSCOM, CINCCENTCOM, and CINCACOM.

PROGRAM ELEMENT: PE 64617, PE 28028 & PE 28031

ISSUES: Joint service program; OSD and Army contributing 3600 funding; Program Manager for Mobile Electric Power (PM-MEP) tasked by OSD to provide program oversight and ensure standardization and joint-service interoperability of generation equipment resulting from this project. MOU developed and signed; ACC/CEX, ASC/WMO, PM-MEP and Army’s 249th Prime Power Battalion are signatories. Army has staffed and approved AF ORD as program’s official requirements document.

CBOCE04 – Deployable Waste Management System

DESCRIPTION: The focus of this program will be to reduce on-site the amount of solid, medical, and hazardous waste material that must be managed and/or disposed. Primary thrust will be to employ commercially-available equipment and/or emerging technologies to provide deployed forces a new bare base capability. Most promising solutions appear to be those technologies that support on-site incineration of solid, medical and hazardous materials. Commercial shredders/compactors can provide a new capability to reduce the volume of waste materials to be landfilled. An Integrated Waste Management System to control the operation of the various components and to provide a means of processing waste water in a closed loop will be developed to minimize the quantity of waste products and reduce the need for large quantities of water to process waste at the contingency base. This program will evaluate any promising equipment/technologies that could effectively provide an on-site, deployable capability to treat and mitigate effects of disposing of latrine wastes.

JUSTIFICATION: Provides partial solution to the critical requirement to reduce airlift needed to deploy Harvest Falcon/Eagle. This need voiced by CINCUSTRANSCOM, CINCCENTCOM, and CINCACOM. Also, this project provide a new capability to Harvest Falcon/Eagle.

PROGRAM ELEMENT: PE 64617, PE 28028 & PE 28031

ISSUES: WL/FIVC has identified plasma-arc technology as a potential solution for effectively, efficiently, and safely incinerating medical and hazardous wastes. This technology has the potential to provide the capability to eliminate such waste materials, including other solid wastes/garbage, and significantly reduce amounts of wastes placed in on-site landfills.

CBOCE06 – Deployable Water Purification, Distribution and Treatment System

DESCRIPTION:. The primary focus of the program is to team with the Army effort to double the purified water output of the existing Harvest Falcon/Eagle reverse osmosis water purification unit (ROWPU). With Army as lead, this project will evaluate and test advanced filtration/purification technologies and materials that can significantly increase purified water production capability at deployed locations.

JUSTIFICATION: A critical requirement exists to maintain an adequate water supply to forces forward deployed. Existing HARVEST EAGLE/HARVEST FALCON kits are now undergoing partial reconstitution and will need replacement within the next decade. A current deficiency exists in USAF disaster and contingency response operations due to outdated water purification capability. Modernization of storage, distribution and reclamation hardware is needed to reduce weight, size and complexity.

PROGRAM ELEMENT: PE 28028 & PE28031

ISSUES: Upon AF approval of existing Army ORD for the 1500 gallon per hour ROWPU, this will become a joint-service program. AF 3600 funding provided FY99 to support our procurement beginning FY00-01.

CBOCE28 – Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Multi-Media Training

DESCRIPTION: This project will leverage existing multi-media software technology to develop base-level EOD personnel advanced interactive training courseware. This CD-ROM-based training software package will be installed on computer systems already fielded to EOD flights, and focus on providing a comprehensive, low-cost training tool. Subject courseware will modernize and enhance the EOD training program which seeks to provide AF EOD technicians the highest level of proficiency and most current technical data on US and other nations’ munitions, aircraft, missiles, and other ordnance.

JUSTIFICATION: Subject program will provide every EOD flight the capability to simulate real-world training on each type of aircraft in the AF inventory. Today, providing such comprehensive training is a limiting factor, since actual training on specifics of aircraft ordnance (locations, connections, mounting, etc) is limited to those aircraft assigned to any particular base. Also, subject system will provide cost savings by reducing the number of "live fires" EOD personnel must accomplish to remain proficient in EOD neutralization procedures.

PROGRAM ELEMENT: PE 64617

ISSUES: ACC/CEX will prepare an AF Form 1067 to modify a capability now being fielded to AF fire fighters, the requirement for which is supported by CAF 311-90-I/II-C, Operational Requirements Document (ORD) for Fire Fighting Readiness Training Interactive Video Courseware, 12 Jun 95.

EMD will deliver the final software product; no 3080 funding required. (Quantity of 7 courseware packages per year is based on projected in-house capability of developer.)

CBOCE29 – Main Charge Disrupter (MCD)

DESCRIPTION: This project fields a family of explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) tools evaluated, validated and developed by the OSD joint-service EOD program. Subject tools "shoot" high-speed projectiles into unexploded cased munitions causing target munitions forcing low-order detonations or burn-out. EOD personnel will employ this capability in scenarios where the fuse-attack render-safe procedure is not appropriate and/or when the unexploded munitions is close to high-value assets and cannot be safely removed.

JUSTIFICATION: Provides AF EOD personnel a new capability to force low-order detonations and/or burn-out to medium-to-large unexploded ordnance (UXO). Improves levels of safety associated with subject UXO neutralization procedures, and improves capability to protect AF facilities and resources from collateral damage associated with UXO detonations. Partial solution to EOD deficiency to safely and effectively neutralize unexploded ordnance (UXO). EOD forces will be increasingly challenged due to the alarming proliferation of arms and ammunition throughout the world and the trend toward greater weapon sophistication. These munitions may include conventional high explosive, chemical/biological, or nuclear payloads. A significant number of these munitions are expected to be of the area denial type containing anti-disturbance, influence, self-destruct, or contact fuzing. Terrorist operations involving improvised explosive devices (IED) and improvised nuclear devices (IND) pose a threat in both peacetime and wartime. IEDs and INDs can have an almost unlimited number of internal configurations and can contain anti-disturbance devices, timing devices, and a multiplicity of sensors. Accidents involving explosive munitions, including those in factories, on the road, in storage areas, and the disposition of hazardous industrial chemicals/materials also constitute threats.

PROGRAM ELEMENT: PE 28028

ISSUES: ACC provided a Joint Potential Designation (JPD) of "Joint" upon review of joint-service MCD ORD. *This is a new appropriation for PE 28028 to provide munitions type equipment for EOD.

CBOCE44 Commercial Shelters/Environmental Control Units (ECU), Small

DESCRIPTION: This project will replace existing Harvest Falcon/Eagle TEMPER tents and a limited number of A/E32C-39 ECUs with the most suitable commercially-available like-sized equipment. The primary focus is to reduce the airlift required to deploy Harvest Falcon/Eagle, and provide an integrated small shelter/ECU system to improve heating/cooling characteristics. Approach is to identify, test and evaluate non-developmental items (NDI)/commercially-available tentage and ECUs for applicability to the Harvest Falcon/Eagle bare base mission, then down select the best candidates for procurement. The project will deliver a basic integrated small shelter/ECU system, with add-on options for extreme cold-weather heaters and tent insulation kits. These shelters will provide approximately 640 square feet of useable area.

JUSTIFICATION: Shelters from the Harvest Falcon and Eagle inventories have been used extensively since the Gulf War to support MOOTWs, AEFs, exercises, and other operations. These shelters have been used beyond their designed capability and must be replaced. Modernized shelters coupled with optimized environmental control units will provide much-improved replacements, and also reduce critical airlift requirements.

PROGRAM ELEMENT: PE 64617 & PE 28031

ISSUES: This project is recognized and periodically reviewed by the OSD Joint Committee on Tactical Shelters, whose purpose is to eliminate the duplication of shelter development efforts among the services. Project status/updates are regular agenda items on the JOCOTAS soft-walled shelter working group.

Potential for joint-service procurement with Army’s Force Provider and medium general-purpose tent replacement program.

Products of this project have the potential to support AF medical readiness program, and serve to replace existing tentage in ATHs.

CBOCE45 Commercial Shelters/Environmental Control Units (ECU), Medium

DESCRIPTION: This project will replace existing Harvest Falcon medium-size (approximately 1500 square feet) frame-and-panel shelters, and provide a limited number of suitable commercially-available ECUs. The primary focus is to reduce the airlift required to deploy Harvest Falcon/Eagle, and provide an integrated shelter/ECU system to improve heating/cooling characteristics. Approach is to identify, test and evaluate non-developmental items (NDI)/commercially-available shelters and ECUs for applicability to the Harvest Falcon bare base mission, then down select the best candidates for procurement. The project will deliver a basic integrated shelter/ECU system, with add-on options for extreme cold-weather heaters and tent insulation kits.

JUSTIFICATION: Shelters from the Harvest Falcon inventories have been used extensively since the Gulf War to support MOOTWs, AEFs, exercises, and other operations. These shelters have been used beyond their designed capability and must be replaced. Modernized shelters coupled with optimized environmental control units will provide much-improved replacements, and also reduce critical airlift requirements.

PROGRAM ELEMENT: PE 64617, PE 28028 PE 28031

ISSUES: Products of this project can support the SV requirement to replace tentage in the 9-1 kitchen with a shelter providing more sanitary food preparation area.
