AN/MSQ-124 Air Defense Communications Platform (ADCP)
The primary mission of the ADCP is to provide a lightweight, highly-mobile communications system to elements of the MACS Squadron and the Low Altitude Air Defense (LAAD) Battalions for the purpose of improving early-warning and target cueing for both Air Breathing Targets (ABT) and Tactical Ballistic Missiles (TBM). A secondary mission for the ADCP is to provide a TADIL-J interface for the TAOC.
The ADCP system consists of Sun UltraSparc Single-Board Computers (SBC) in a
VME chassis, workstations, a TADIL-J terminal, various communication subsystems,
a duplex Intra-Battery Data Link (IBDL) capability, Ground Based Data Link
(GBDL) ports and the capacity to receive Tactical Ballistic Missile (TBM)
targets directly from the AN/TPS-59 long range surveillance radar via
Point-to-Point Data Link (PPDL). The equipment is housed in a
Shelterized-Integrated Command Post Shelter (SICPS) mounted on an M1097
High-Mobility Multi-Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV). A MEP-3 mobile diesel-fueled
generator powers the system.
