Soldiers of the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry), configured Capability Set 13 equipment -- including satellite communications, tactical radios and friendly force tracking technology -- on a Gator All Terrain Vehicle that can be transported by helicopter to remote locations. The innovative solution allowed the 2nd Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment to communicate in austere environments not accessible by heavier vehicle platforms. The vehicle is pictured at Fort Polk, La., where the unit is the Army's first preparing to deploy with CS 13.
