Baseband Equipment Branch employees Reset Line Replaceable Units found in the AN/TSC-85 and AN/TSC-93 Tactical Satellite Systems. Technicians also perform overhaul work on the AN/GSC-52 Up/Down Frequency Converter program.

Employees support the warfighter by overhauling a variety of enhanced tactical satellite signal processors, servo amps, frequency converters. The signal processors provide higher data transmission rates, more bandwidth and increased channel capability. Servo amps deliver power to move a control that drives the motion of the antenna. The Converters convert intermediate frequency to radio frequency to transmit and receive information from satellites for ground communication.

Tobyhanna Army Depot is the largest full-service Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) maintenance and logistics support facility in the Department of Defense. Employees repair, overhaul and fabricate 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. The depot is the Army Center of Industrial and Technical Excellence (CITE) for Communications-Electronics, Avionics, and Missile Guidance and Control Systems and the Air Force Technology Repair Center (TRC) for ground communications and electronics.

About 5,700 personnel are employed at Tobyhanna, which is located in the Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania.

Tobyhanna Army Depot is part of the U.S. Army CECOM Life Cycle Management Command. Headquartered at Fort Monmouth, N.J., the command's mission is to research, develop, acquire, field and sustain communications, command, control, computer, intelligence, electronic warfare and sensors capabilities for the Armed Forces.
