Abstract:

The purpose of DT-IIB was to conduct both technical and operational testing in order to verify that the ANSRC-54 Navy Shipboard Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System SINCGARS is performing to the required equipmentsystem specifications and that it meets the critical technical and operational performance parameters and threshold requirements of the Test and Evaluation Master Plan TEMP No. 0706-01. Based on the results of testing, a decision will be made whether or not to certify the system ready to commence Operational Evaluation OPEVAL OT-II. The ANSRC-54 Navy Shipboard SINCGARS provides secure, antijam AJ1 Very High Frequency - Frequency Modulated VHF-FM tactical ship-to-ship, ship-to-air-to-shoreship, and ship-to- shore communications, used primarily for amphibious and surface fire support missions. All Navy SINCGARS Ship Segment installations use the basic ANSRC-54 Radio Set. Other Government Off-the-Shelf GOTS and developmental equipment is used, dictated by the capability provided, i.e., single channel, non-AJ ANVRC-46 Replacement, and single-circuit AJ. The principle component of the Navy Shipboard SINCGARS Ship Segment is the RT-1730SRC-54 Radio Receiver-Transmitter RT. The RT is a slightly modified version of the U.S. Armys GOTS integrated communications ICOM security, single channel SC AJ radio ANVRC-90A SINCGARS radio set.
