Army rolls out networked Capability Set 13

The five "super configuration" Mine Resistant Ambush Protected prototype vehicles equipped with Capability Set 13 assets were built and integrated at the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center, in Warren, Mich., and shipped to Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., in late August 2012 to undergo safety release testing prior to fielding to the 10th Mountain Division for New Equipment Training beginning this October. The M-ATV-Lite (shown here) was the first vehicle shipped.

  • Integration and installation efforts on Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles equipped with components of Capability Set (CS) 13 at Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center Atlantic in Charleston, S.C., Capability Set 13 marks the first time the Army is delivering network systems as an integrated communications package that spans the entire Brigade Combat Team (BCT) formation. Two BCTs of the 10th Mountain Division received the first CS 13 vehicles in October. These MRAPs, configured with new tactical radios plus the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) Increment 2 and other CS 13 components, will accompany those brigades when they deploy in 2013.
