Elite team delivers quick response, screens hundreds of radios
In a matter of days, Army organizations formed a rapid response team to screen hundreds of Combat Service Support Automated Information System Interface (CAISI) at Tobyhanna Army Depot. Subject matter experts from the depot, Communications-Electronics Command’s Integrated Logistics Support Center at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, and Combat Service Support Lab at Fort Huachuca, Arizona, were tasked to test a percentage of radios being stored by the Defense Logistics Agency to confirm future sustainability of the assets. The pass rate for the radio stands at 98.6 percent. Thousands of upgraded CAISI radios were placed in stock at the depot in 2012. Screening a subset of the assets allows for a statistically accurate forecast of the condition of the system inventory. CAISI was fielded in the mid-1990s and provides secure, encrypted wireless and wired local data communications system that works via Local Area Networks and satellites to provide global access to the military Internet. Components include laptop computers, radios, routers, modems, antennas, and power supplies. (Photo Credit: Peter Ankner) VIEW ORIGINAL
