A7597 – VIPER/T

VIPER/T is a portable, automated test unit that is operator-interfaced by a Laptop.  It is a modular design with 3 configurations: Radio Frequency (RF), Electro-Optical (EO), and a combined RF/EO.  The RF configuration will consist of the basic configuration plus additional test capability to screen RF Modules and Circuit Cards.  The EO configuration will consist of reduced capability RF-type configuration plus additional test capability to screen EO Modules and Circuit Assemblies.  The combined configuration has both RF and EO testing capabilities.  VIPER/T also has the capability of discrete component diagnostics.  Primary power input is 28VDC, provided via the standard NATO slave receptacle on a HMMWV and other vehicles.  Secondary input power is 108-220 VAC, 40-400 Hz.

VIPER/T currenlty has the following application program sets. (APS)

  • AN/PSM-117 (A7507)
  • [LAV]
  • [Saber - in planning]

E09427M LIGHT ARMORED VEHICLE ANTI-TANK (LAV-AT)

The LAV-AT is an all-terrain, all-weather vehicle with night capabilities. It is air transportable via C-130, C-141, C-5 and CH-53 E. This vehicle provides mobile, armored, accurate and destructive fire from defiled positions against heavy armored target and fixed fortifications. With its mobility, it can keep pace with it's applicable assigned military unit to provide highly mobile, protected anti-armor fire support to light infantry and reconnaissance forces, and to provide a capability to defeat heavy, armored targets at long ranges. The vehicle can be used in both the defensive and offensive roles. Its primary weapon station is the Emerson turret. When combat loaded there are 2 ready and 14 stowed TOW II ATGMs as well as 200 ready rounds and 800 stowed rounds of 7.62mm ammunition. There are 8 ready rounds and 8 stowed rounds of smoke grenades. The missiles can be loaded under armor. The vehicle can be made fully amphibious within 3 minutes.

A7597 – TETS – AN/USM-657v3

TETS is a portable, automated test unit that is controlled by a Common Hardware Laptop computer. It is a modular design configuration using mature and proven Non-developmental Item components and modules to accommodate 3 configurations: Radio Frequency (RF), Electro-Optical (EO), and a combined RF/EO. The RF configuration will consist of the basic configuration plus additional test capability to screen RF Modules and Circuit Cards. The EO configuration will consist of the basic configuration plus additional test capability to screen EO Modules and Circuit Assemblies. The combined configuration will have both RF and EO testing capabilities. TETS will also have the capability of discrete component diagnostics. Primary power input is 28VDC, provided via the standard NATO slave receptacle on a HMMWV and other vehicles. Secondary input power is 108-220 VAC, 40-400 Hz.
