Objective

The objective of the Technical Data IPS Element is to identify, plan, resource and implement management actions to develop and acquire information to:

  • Operate, install, maintain, and train on the equipment to maximize its effectiveness and availability;
  • Effectively catalog and acquire spare/repair parts, support equipment, and all classes of supply;
  • Define the configuration baseline of the system (hardware and software) to effectively support the Warfighter with the best capability at the time it is needed.
