Abstract:

CONDITION The entire fleet 53 modules is deployed or in the process of deploying 15 are being reviewed as washouts Approximately half of remaining 38 are newly deployed and in average condition The remainder are nearing the end of their useful life and are in very poor condition. CONTRIBUTING CAUSES Age and a lack of operator level maintenance are the prime drivers of the condition Force Provider Modules, once established on a FOB, become akin to a common utility Not much attention is paid to the daily maintenance As modules are moved, many components are pilfered, or otherwise re-tasked This item is a non-reportable item that consists of several thousand lines It is large enough and complex enough that no one is maintaining it as a system The end result is poor material condition. CORRECTIVE ACTIONS TACOM has received additional direct theater support funding to improve material conditions and accountability in theater We, in conjunction with PM-FSS, have established a forward support area and are working closely with CJTF-82 and USFOR-A to identify, repair, and reuse material as efficiently as possible.
