In 2009, as the buildup of forces increased in Afghanistan, many Mine Resistant Armored Protected (MRAP) vehicles were rushed to the battlefield, and some of them arrived without the necessary equipment, including the VRCU (Vehicular Remote Control Unit) accessory equipment for use with the SINCGARS radio system. Without this accessory equipment, the soldier would be subjected to the battlefield elements by being required to exit the vehicle to change radio frequencies, putting them in greater harm. We received an emergency request to provide a solution to get the vehicles ready for the battlefield.
As Solution Specialists leaping into action, in less than a week we went from request to process capable fabrication, testing, and delivery, ensuring that the MRAPs were online and able to protect ground forces.
We received a letter of appreciation from the Army Colonel Program Manager, thanking us for the work. You can see the letter here
