Abstract : The need exists for a quick turnaround, low volume, multicolor printer to output topographic and terrain products to support special operations and decision making, planning and combat operations on the modern, fast-paced battlefield. U.S. Army Topographic Engineering Center (TEC) is fulfilling this need through the integration, with slight modifications, of Commercial, Off-the- Shelf (COTS) printing, reproduction, scanning, and processing hardware and software. Modifications to this hardware will include those needed for the equipment to survive the additional stresses placed on military equipment. This system is not intended to meet all QRMP Required Operational Capability (ROC) requirements, but to develop an interim reproduction system to fulfill some of these requirements until technologies mature. To support this effort, TECOM authorized the U.S. Army Combat Systems Test Activity (CSTA) to plan and conduct testing of the QRMP-S shelter and prime mover to provide the data needed to establish what modifications are needed to the QRMP hardware.
