Project Announcement: Wireless Communications for Improved Operations and Maintenance – Phase V

The DOD is partnering with industry and academia on a multiphase CTMA initiative to assess the capabilities, lifecycle costs, integration burdens, security, and maintenance implications of several commercially-available wireless communication systems to aid in the development of a solution for digital wireless communications applicable to commercial and public business, as well as the US Army’s combat and maintenance support community.

Phase V will build upon the work completed during Phases I-IV and adjust the technical data package, product support package, and accessory installation kit to be integrated on the M88A2 Heavy Equipment Recovery Combat Utility Lifting Extraction System (HERCULES) Combat Recovery System. Special emphasis will be placed on updating the hardware engineering drawings, provisioning the accessory kits and associated parts, updating training materials and technical manuals required for approving the safety release and fielding of the wireless communication system across the M88A2 fleet. An additional objective is to provide a common framework to develop the processes, tools, and parts needed to transition this technology across other Army and DoD vehicle platforms.
