ITT Aerospace/Communications Division’s (A/CD’s) Logistics Division supports various programs by being involved in the redesign, test, monitoring, and control of complex projects as well as providing coordination and direction, and interacting with internal and external customers. As demonstrated by its current support activities on the Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) Radio Communications Test System, the Division sustains a high level of capability to deal with all types of logistics problems.
In 1994, the Logistics Division performed a technical review on the Army’s field test equipment (AN/GRM-114) used for the SINCGARS program. This review revealed numerous shortcomings and offered recommendations that were not previously addressed by the Army or the contractor. In 1995, the Division continued its support by being involved in implementing the improvement phase which led to the AN/GRM-122. The Logistics Division not only demonstrated a strong technical understanding of the SINCGARS radio and field test equipment, but facilitated the customer and the user agreement on requirements definitions, system configuration, and schedules. The Division’s strength for dealing with this type of logistics support comes from its employees’ expertise and years of field experience. Many employees served active duty in the military, and had operated the same field equipment which they now support.
As a result of ITT A/CD’s Test Equipment Integration support for the Army’s AN/GRM field test equipment, the SINCGARS program has become quite successful. The AN/GRM-122 offers a 25% cost reduction over the previous AN/GRM-114, and uses the latest plug and play concepts to allow for lower cost developments of future enhancements as well as adaptability to other radios that fall within the parameters of the unit.
