M1068A3 Standard Integrated Command Post System (SICPS) Carrier
The M1068A3 Standard Integrated Command Post System (SICPS) Carrier is the RISE powered version of the M1068. A variant of the M577A3, it was modified for the next generation of automated command and control through the Army Tactical Command and Control System (ATCCS).
About two thirds of the U.S. M577A2 fleet will be converted to either M1068A3 or M1068 (Basic) configurations.
The M1068A3 has a crew of 4: commander; driver; and two command post operators. In addition to mounting provisions for the ATCCS hardware, vehicle modifications include an improved 5 KW Auxiliary Power Unit (APU), a power/data distribution system, and a ten meter antenna mast.
The M1068 SICPS Carriers (Basic) are fielded with the M113A2 power train. Future planning and funding decisions will determine a possible retrofit schedule to convert selected M1068 (Basic) SICPS Carriers to M1068A3 configuration (See M1068, M577A3)
