On the Job at Tobyhanna
July 10, 2013
Personnel in Tobyhanna Army Depot's Systems Integration and Support Directorate's Satellite Data Cable Branch fabricate cables -- simple data cables to complex wire harnesses.
They also build test sets like the Versatile Data Automated Test Station (VDATS), and complete test kits, which include cables, adaptors and identification boxes, for the Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS). Last year, employees built over 150,000 Blue Force Tracking cables. VDATS is the Air Force member of the Defense Department's Families-of-Testers.
Tobyhanna Army Depot is the Defense Department's largest center for the repair, overhaul and fabrication of a wide variety of electronics systems and components, from tactical field radios to the ground terminals for the defense satellite communications network. Tobyhanna's missions support all branches of the Armed Forces.
