Abstract : The purpose of DT-IIB was to conduct both technical and operational testing in order to verify that the AN/SRC-54 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. 0706-01. 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 AN/SRC-54 Navy Shipboard SINCGARS provides secure, antijam (AJ)1 Very High Frequency - Frequency Modulated (VHF-FM) tactical ship-to-ship, ship-to-air-to-shore/ship, and ship-to- shore communications, used primarily for amphibious and surface fire support missions. All Navy SINCGARS Ship Segment installations use the basic AN/SRC-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 (AN/VRC-46 Replacement), and single-circuit AJ. The principle component of the Navy Shipboard SINCGARS Ship Segment is the RT-1730/SRC-54 Radio Receiver-Transmitter (RT). The RT is a slightly modified version of the U.S. Army's GOTS integrated communications (ICOM) security, single channel (SC) AJ radio (AN/VRC-90A SINCGARS radio set).
