Appendix A

AAMDC Equipment

This appendix describes the equipment used in the AAMDC tactical operations center to plan and execute the AAMDC mission. The equipment consists of an integrated system of hardware and software collectively known as the Air and Missile Defense Planning and Control System (AMDPCS). The AMDPCS includes shelters, computers and communications equipment, and is supported by a variety of ancillary equipment.

TOC layout

A-1. The TOC is modular in configuration, comprised of six octagonal, quick erect, soft-walled shelters and five high-mobility multipurpose-wheeled vehicles (HMMWV) as shown in Figure A-1. The AMDPCS equipment needed to plan and execute the AAMDC mission is distributed throughout the TOCís operational cells. The configuration of the TOC can be changed if necessary to satisfy the requirements of METT-TC.

Figure A-1. TOC Layout.

Active defense cell

A-2. The active defense cell and its automated equipment are shown in Figure A-2. This equipment consists of two Air Defense Systems Integrator (ADSI) workstations, an Air and Missile Defense Workstation (AMDWS), a Global Command and Control System-Army (GCCS-A) and laptop computers. This equipment is described below:

attack operations cell

A-3. The attack operations cell and its automated equipment are shown in Figure A-3. This equipment includes the Automated Deep Operations Coordination System (ADOCS), the Army Field Artillery Tactical Data System (AFATDS), the All Source Analysis System remote workstation (ASAS RWS), the Generic Area Limitation Environment (GALE), the Joint Services Workstation (JSWS), the Joint Deployable Intelligence Support System (JDISS) and laptop computers. This equipment is described below:

passive defense cell

A-4. The passive defense cell and automated equipment within the cell are shown in Figure A-4. This equipment includes not only the passive defense equipment but also equipment belonging to the G2 current operations section. The passive defense equipment includes the Global Command and Control System-Army (GCCS-A), the Joint Warning and Reporting Network (JWARN), the Maneuver Control System (MCS), the Worldwide Origin and Threat System (WOTS), and laptop computers. The G2 equipment includes the ASAS RWS and the Airborne Broadcast Intelligence System (ABIS). The passive defense and G2 equipment are described below:

g3 plans and comMunications

A-5. The G3 plans and communications cell and its automated equipment are shown in Figure A-5. This equipment includes the ADSI, the AMDWS, the Commanderís Analysis and Planning System (CAPS), the Contingency Theater Automated Planning System (CTAPS) and two laptop computers. The equipment is described below:

Figure A-5. G3 Plans and Communications Cell.

personnel and logistics cell

A-6. The personnel and logistics cell and its automated equipment are shown in Figure A-6. This equipment currently includes two AMDWS and two laptop computers. Also shown are two GCSS-As, which will eventually replace the AMDWS. The equipment is described below:

command group

A-7. The command group work area is shown in Figure A-7. It contains workspace and facilities for the AAMDC commander, the chief of staff and the battle captain.

Figure A-7. Command Group Work Area.

The battle captainís workstation includes the Central Communications Display (CCD), which is used to direct and coordinate AAMDC Operations. The CCD is linked via the LAN to other workstations within the TOC. It allows the battle captain to selectively view other displays including the ADOCS, GALE, MSTS, ADSI, AMDWS, ASAS RWS, and MCS. It also allows him to communicate with operators of other displays to facilitate coordination of TOC operations.

Communications Equipment

A-8. The following communications equipment is included in the AMDPCS:

Tactical telephones

A-9. Tactical telephone users are shown in Figure A-8. These users may be physically located in the TOC or in a fixed facility in the vicinity of the TOC.
