A better Command Post. (On the Drawing Board).

MORE space is what the Army wanted for its tactical operations centers, and that's what it will get with the Large Standard Integrated Command Post System being developed at the U.S. Army Soldier Systems Center in Natick, Mass. The LSICPS will provide 450 square feet of space, making it nearly four times the size of the current Modular Command Post Tent System.

Four proposed shelters were independently tested last fall at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., to become part of the LSICPS system. Of those, the two most likely to meet the Army's needs are the improved Tent Extended Modular Personnel (TEMPER) and modified Modular General Purpose Tent System (MGPTS), said Frank Kostka, 21st Century Fabric Structures Group team leader.

An enclosed space for the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system and an integral liner for overhead lighting further simplify the system. Other components of the TEMPER LSICPS are an electrical distribution system, tables and map boards.

The LSICPS is scheduled for initial fielding to the 3rd Stryker Brigade Combat Team in Alaska in 2004. -- Soldier Systems Center
