Abstract : The purpose of DT-IIB was to conduct both technical and operational testing in order to verify that the AN/ARQ-53 Navy Shipboard Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS) is performing to the required equipment/system specifications and that it meets the critical technical and operational performance parameters and threshold requirements of the Test and Evaluation Master Plan (TEMP) No. 0706-02. 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-Il). The AN/ARQ-53 Navy Shipboard SINCGARS Airborne Relay provides tactical antijamm (AJ), Very High Frequency - Frequency Modulated (VHF-FM) ship to ship and ship to air to shore/ship communications, used primarily for amphibious and surface fire support missions. All Navy SINCGARS Airborne Segment installations is comprised of Non-Developmental Item (NDl), Government Off-the-Shelf (GOTS) and Engineering and Manufacturing (E&MD) Developmental components housed in a removable equipment enclosure. The principle component of the AN/ARq-53 is the RT 1476A AJ radio receiver-transmitter (RT), a GOTS component used in AN/ARC-201A SINCGARS for Army aircraft.
