    In the sweltering temperatures of the Middle East, Soldiers aren't the only ones who can overheat - their communications equipment must also be kept cool in order to function properly. Efforts by Project Manager, Mobile Electric Power (PM MEP) to provide environmental control in support of mission success took a major step forward on 2 Feb., when a Full Rate Production Ceremony for the 60k British Thermal Units per Hour (BTUH) Improved Environmental Control Units (IECU) was held in Florence, Ky.

The first fielding with an operational unit is expected to take place in March.
