1.          PURPOSE AND SCOPE
1.1       The Integrated Soldier System Project (ISSP) Use Study is an Integrated Logistics Support (ILS)
document, which is designed to assist Department of National Defence (DND) procurement managers,
engineers, logistic planners, and prospective contractors and suppliers to produce a system design and
logistic support package to meet the requirements for the Canadian Forces (CF). The ISSP Use Study is
a living document and will be updated as necessary. The system to be procured must be supportable
world-wide and Life Cycle Costs (LCC) should be minimized while still ensuring an operationally effective
system.

1.2      The purpose of the Use Study is to identify and document supportability factors pertinent to the
intended use and deployment of the Integrated Soldier System - Suite (ISS-S). It fulfils the requirements
of the Logistics Support Analysis (LSA) process, as expressed by A-LM-505-100/AG-003 Task 201
(directly analogous to Military Standard (MIL-STD)-1388-1A, Task 201 and similar to Defence Standard
(Def Stan) 00-60, Task 201). The document also includes a description of pertinent existing Department
of National Defence (DND) maintenance and support resources. As such, the Use Study also fulfils the
requirements of LSA Task 202, as it pertains to Support System Standardization efforts.

1.3         The scope of the ISSP Use Study is focused on two separate areas:

            a. To define required supportability factors; and

            b. To provide logistic staff with the support environment information needed to carry out LSA.

1.4    This document provides the information required to develop an efficient and cost effective support
system while making maximum use of DND‟s current support infrastructure.

        c. Shop Replaceable Unit (SRU). An individual item (including attaching hardware) as defined
        by the Logistics Support Analysis (LSA) process and documented in the Technical Data Package
        (TDP) within a given equipment or unit that is designated as replaceable in a support
        environment. An SRU may or may not require external test equipment to detect and diagnose its
        failure. An SRU may or may not be designated as repairable, either at the same support site at
        which it was removed or at a deeper line.

                      LRU Characteristics                                SRU Characteristics
             Belongs to an Equipment                            Belongs to a unit (usually an LRU).
             Supports „Repair by Replacement‟ (RxR)             Requires RxR of the parent unit
              of the parent equipment
                                                                 May require external ETE to diagnose

        d. Readiness. The time within which a unit or formation can be made ready at the appropriate
        location, that is its normal peacetime base or, for ships already at sea, its current location. A unit
        or formation is said to be ready when it is manned, equipped and trained for the task and
        supported appropriately.

        e. Shelf Life. The length of time during which an item of supply, subject to deterioration or
        having a limited life which cannot be renewed, is considered serviceable while stored

        f. Task Force. A Task Force (TF) is a temporarily formed unit or formation established to work
        on a single defined task or activity. The unit is manned, equipped and trained to enable it to
        achieve its specific mission.

3.      ISSP SUPPORT POLICY
3.1     The support policy for the ISS-S will be guided by its designation as a Deployable Weapons
System. As an operationally focused capability, the support policy for both the initial and full capability, as
delivered, will aim to ensure maximum operational availability. This will require embedded CF logistics
support, Life Cycle Materiel Management (LCMM) provided by Director General Land Equipment
Program Management (DGLEPM) (see Annex F- DGLEPM Organizational Structure)/Director Soldier
Systems Program Management (DSSPM) at National Defence Headquarters (NDHQ), with the Original
Equipment Integrator (OEI) providing Optimized Weapons System Support (OWSS) under the terms of
the In-Service Support Contracting Framework (ISSCF).

4.      STATEMENT OF OPERATIONAL APPLICATION
4.1     GENERAL
4.1.1 As stated in the Integrated Soldier System Project (ISSP) Statement of Operational Requirement

4.1.2 This suite is deemed indispensable in order to achieve CF soldier optimum combat effectiveness
under adverse operational conditions, worldwide in the context of the AoT ADO FEC. Information relating
to Usage Rate, Threat, User Units and Operational Context are included at Annex B – Operational
Situation.

4.1.2 Support Plans will be developed for both the Initial Operational Capability (IOC) and Full
Operational Capability (FOC). At FOC, any solution proposed for ISSP will aim to be fully integrated within
the Land Command Support System (LCSS) and will be developed with a view for use in both deployed
operations and the training & simulation environments.

4.2     IOC AND FOC
4.2.1   The SOR states that IOC will be achieved in Cycle 1 when all of the conditions below are met:

        a. one (1) TF is fully equipped, trained and declared operationally ready for deployment using
        the ISS-S;

        b. the Land Force (LF) training infrastructure is in place with requisite equipment and qualified
        instructors (qualified to the level of proficiency necessary to independently and safely perform
        related duties and tasks) for both operators and maintainers; and

        c.   the supply chain holds the necessary ISS-S spares.

4.2.2 Dependant upon ISS-S total implementation forces wide, as apposed to being Task Force
specific equipment, the Canadian Forces School of Communications and Electronics (CFSCE) may
become involved in the training of Operators and Maintainers.

4.2.3 At FOC, the delivered ISS-S, integrated with other Soldier System products such as load carriage
equipment, will satisfy the Statement of Operational Requirement (SOR) by being optimized for operation
in complex terrain to support the conduct of network-enabled, full-spectrum operations to the soldier level.
These operations will be characterized by common intent, decentralized mission command and shared
Situational Awareness (SA) that is enabled by appropriate culture, technology and procedures. The
overall physical, mental and cognitive burden on the dismounted soldier will be reduced.

4.2.4 The SOR states that FOC will be reached with the successful delivery of Cycle 3 when all of the
conditions listed below are met:

        a. six (6) TFs are fully equipped, trained and are/have been declared operationally ready for
        deployment using the ISS-S;

        b. the LF training infrastructure is in place with requisite equipment and qualified instructors
        (qualified to the level of proficiency necessary to independently and safely perform related duties
        and tasks) for both operators and maintainers; and

        c.   the supply chain holds the necessary ISS-S spares.

4.2.5 The ILS demands at FOC will require that the ISS-S necessary to kit six Task Forces has been
received and that all identified spares, Special Tools & Test Equipment (STTE), In-Service Support
contracts and regenerative training have been established.

5.2      SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
5.2.1    The components of the ISS-S will be detailed in Annex A – Equipment once defined.

5.3      KEY COMPONENTS AND CAPABILITIES
5.3.1    The following is a brief description of each of the core components:

         a. Radio. The main backbone of the system is the radio which provides for voice and data
         transmission. The radio may incorporate a Global Positioning System (GPS) for navigation and
         reference. Security is provided through built in encryption;

         b. Visual Display Device (VDU). The visual display is a handheld, wrist or vest mounted unit
         that enables the display of digital maps, plotting with symbols, data display including text
         messaging, video display and situational awareness through plotting of movement;

         c. Command and Control Software. The command and control software will have the following
         features:

             i.     Digital Maps & Overlays;

             ii.    Plotting & Symbols;

             iii. Text Messaging & Formats; and

             iv. Data Lists.

      Note: Training aides should be loadable on Personal Computers as a self-paced package or
      embedded in the system software.

         d. Connection to Sensor Units. There is a requirement for enhanced system flexibility which
         would allow for the ability to connect currently stand-alone sensors to the ISS-S to enhance
         operational capabilities. Possible interfaces could include:


                                                      7
                                                                                 2383-403-001
                                                                                 ISSP Use Study


           i. Rifle Sensor. One possibility is to connect a sensor to the rifle that gives range and
           azimuth to a potential target so that target data can be passed off to an “A” vehicle to be
           engaged;

           ii. Night Vision. Another is from a helmet mounted sensor - either Infra Red or Low Light
           Television; and/or

6.            SUPPORT FACTORS
6.1.          GENERAL
 6.1.1 The following discussion is intended to cover the ILS elements, which need to be considered
during acquisition. The intent is to provide information on the use and support environment into which the
ISS-S equipment will be deployed, and draw conclusions concerning the most efficient and cost effective
method of support delivery. Being an operationally focused capability, the interim and final support policy
will ensure maximum operational availability through integral logistics resources, with NDHQ/DSSPM
acting as LCMM and the OEI providing contractor support. The optimal mix of industry and Government
support provided above and beyond the Support Units will be determined by an Optimized Weapon
System Support (OWSS)/In-Service Support System (ISS) study and the willingness of industry to
participate (see In-Service Support Contracting Framework (ISSCF).

6.1.3     The ISS-S is designated an operational deployable weapons system and will be used primarily
on operations as a key component of deployed Task Forces outside Canada. As such, the Concept of
Support is to embed Systems Management, Systems Support and Deployable Logistics into the Field
Forces sufficient to support the system at an operational tempo for deployed periods in of approximately
seven months. The Concept of Support will adhere to the fundamentals and levels of Combat Service
Support (CSS) as detailed in the Land Force Sustainment doctrine and in accordance with the principles
of the Land Equipment Management System (LEMS) at Reference S. These will be tailored as required to
the subsystems fielded and the approved Concept of Operations (CONOPS). Signals and CSS personnel
will receive management and technical training, and a complete Integrated Logistics Support system will
be established to sustain the ISS-S for replenishment and LEMS during training and operations.

6.2.    PROJECT DELIVERABLES
6.2.1 The Project will deliver ISS-S over three project cycles. Each Suite will require an interim support
package, but only Cycle 3 Suite will require ongoing support of an established LCMM. The PMO ISSP ILS
section will conduct the LCMM functions for Cycles 1 and 2.

6.2.2 Interim Support (Cycle 1 Suite and Cycle 2 Suite). Given the short life of the first two Suites of the
ISS-S, the potential to retain some components for sequential Suites and the necessity for the Project to
retain control of assets and the development process, responsibility for the interim support of these Suites
will be retained by the PMO ILS Section. In-Service Support for the final Cycle 3 Suite will transition to the
respective DGLEPM LCMMs. Contractor interim support will be obtained to assist the Project team to
support the Cycle 1 Suite and Cycle 2 Suite equipment and also during the transition of the equipment to
Matrix support. Concurrently, elements of the Interim Service Support contract will be expanded to
develop a full In-Service Support capability under the terms of an Optimizes Weapons System Support
(OWSS) contract.

6.2.3. Cycle 1 Suite. Although the Project will retain LCMM responsibility for the Cycle 1 Suite, the OEI
will be asked to provide support assistance under an Interim In-Service Support contract framework. It is
expected that the contractor will provide a support proposal that will include the following as costed
options:

        a. A Logistics Support Analysis (LSA) and a Life Cycle Cost (LCC) Analysis;

        b. Recommendations for First and Second Line Special Tooling and Test Equipment (STTE);

        c.   Recommendations for Initial Provisioning Spares (IPS);

        d. Recommendations for Spares Warehousing, packaging levels and delivery to a Canadian
           Forces Distribution Center;

        e. Recommendations for Repair & Overhaul procedures for all sub-systems;

        f.   Proposals for on call Field Service Representatives (FSR);

        g. Obsolescence management, including buy-back of unused LRUs and upgrade of spare
           LRUs;

        h. TDP repository and TDP Support;

        i.   Software management and software release/configuration control; and

        j.   System and Sub-system Configuration Management.

                                                                                   ISSP Use Study


6.2.4   Cycle 2 Suite. The primary focus of Cycle 2 Suite will be enhanced planning and operating tools,
enhanced information exchange and additional sensor capacity with minimum impact on power
consumption and carrying configuration (i.e. taking advantage of the growth capacity requirement of
Cycle 1 Suite). Interim support will continue with Cycle 2 Suite with additional support in some of the
above mentioned areas provided under the OWSS contract.

6.2.5 Project and ICS Support (Cycle 3 Suite). Being an operationally focused capability, the interim
and final support policy will ensure maximum operational availability through integral logistics resources,
with NDHQ/DSSPM assuming responsibility as the Lead (System) LCMM and the Contractor providing
long term In-Service Support (OWSS). Some components of the ISS-S may be managed within
NDHQ/DGLEPM (the Matrix) under the oversight of the Lead LCMM. Additional PMPYs may be required
within DGLEPM to provide DND oversight and management in the areas of technical, supply and
financial/contracting support. The exact numbers of additional personnel required and the organizational
structure will be confirmed during the Definition Phases.

6.3     OPERATIONAL AND LOGISTICS STOCKS.
6.3.1 Operational and Logistics Stocks. Each Cycle will acquire an extra quantity of systems for
operational and logistics stocks. In addition, requirements for stocking of replaceable components will be
required. The definition of the required items and quantities are to be determined. These stocks will be
available to support ongoing Task Force operations. All major ISS components will require specific
labeling, serialization and Bar Coding.

6.3.2 Co-operative Logistics. DND will investigate opportunities for co-operative logistics with other
NATO/ABCA users of the selected ISS-S system or sub-components.

6.3.3 Prototypes. It is intended that for each project cycle a quantity of prototypes will be produced for
testing. If at all possible, these systems may be retained and the systems upgraded to production
standards for use as training spares.

6.3.4   Configuration Control. There will be a need to designate one suite for configuration control.

6.3.5 Cataloguing. All ISS items will require full cataloguing with NATO stock numbers for all ISSP
items procured.

6.3.6 Disposal. The Cycle 3 Suite system may replace the Cycle 1 Suite and Cycle 2 Suite, which will
be withdrawn from service and disposed of when Cycle 3 Suite is issued. It is planned to return the Suites
to the Contractor for salvage/disposal. This will eliminate any Hazmat concerns. Depending on the spares
support contract, there may be a requirement for the Contractor to provide credit for unused spares.

6.3.7 Central Holdings and Issues (Supply Support). There will be a total of six complete Task Force
sets of the ISS-S. Since the ISS-S will be used primarily on operations, there will be a need to hold the
sets centrally and for issues to be made to the Area designated to mount the TF. Issues to the TF will be
made from the Area Support Group in time for pre-deployment certification training. Additional suites will
be held at CF Schools for Technical Training Plan training.

6.3.8 Maintenance. Current Canadian Army maintenance policy and procedures are expressed in
Canadian Forces Technical Order (CFTO) B-GL-342-001/FP-000 “Land Equipment Management
System”. Description of the types of maintenance units (formerly Lines of Maintenance) available to
support ISS-S and the Lines of maintenance is contained in the ISS-S Maintenance Concept.
Adjustments to the maintenance activities will be incorporated, as necessary; so as to implement the
most effective maintenance system as identified by a limited Logistics Support Analysis (LSA) and the
Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCC Analysis). The Maintenance Concept for ISS-S is attached at Annex C-
Maintenance Concept – ISS-S.

                                                                                  2383-403-001
                                                                                  ISSP Use Study


6.3.9 LSA. While the final maintenance policy will be determined from the results of the LSA analysis of
all of the components of the ISS-S, there are some basic themes that will be used to influence any cost
benefit analysis. The first theme is that the core components of the system are electronic devices with a
limited life: a PRR radio with GPS; a PDA; and a computer. This life is dictated by the rapid pace of
development that affects processor speed and memory capacity and commercial supportability patterns
that limit component shelf life. This means that the shelf life of components will be limited and
obsolescence management will need to be a factor considered. The life of Cycle 1 Suite, including the
planned upgrade of Cycle 2 Suite will limit the useful life of these Suites to a maximum of 8 years. With
the planned startup of the replacement project in 2020, the planned life of Cycle 3 Suite should be
approximately of 6 years.

6.3.10 In-Service Support. In-Service Support will be the responsibility of DSSPM within DGLEPM.

7.      IN-SERVICE SUPPORT CONTRACT MODEL
7.1     GENERAL
7.1.1 This section should be read in concert with the In-Service Support Contracting Framework
(ISSCF). This framework provides guidance for development of the In-Service Support contracts. The key
guidelines that need to be considered for ISS-S are:

        a. Type of Weapons System. The ISS-S shall be considered as a Deployable Weapons System
        for the purpose of the application of these guidelines.

        b. Operational Advice. The Government of Canada (GOC) must retain the capability to conduct
        technical investigations and make decisions or provide recommendations. This means that for
        ISS-S, DND will retain the ability to control all aspect of operational use.

        c. Smart Buyer. The GOC will retain an in-house expertise to assess value for money and
        effectively challenge industry when dealing with technical, logistics or programme issues during
        all phases of an equipments life cycle. For ISS-S, this means that DSSPM will retain engineering
        and logistics expertise within an Equipment Management Team (EMT) or act as the lead-LCMM
        dealing with all aspects of the ISS-S support in order to assess technical and support evaluations,
        modifications, upgrades and obsolescence management issues.

        d. Training. Weapons system operational training will be provided by DND. Operational training
        may include deployment support training. In contrast, contractors may provide operating and
        maintenance procedures training. For ISS-S, training will be embedded within DND. It is predicted
        that the ISS-S will have a major impact on tactics, techniques and procedures for the employment
        of the TF Battlegroup and control of training must be maintained. The contractor will be expected
        to provide the Initial Cadre Training, including training packages, training aids and materials, on
        the system management, operator and technician maintenance.

        e. Facility Infrastructure. Weapon system support facilities located on GOC owned property or at
        deployed operating bases will be provided by the GOC. For ISS-S, there will be no requirement
        for unique support infrastructure. Support activities will take place within the current GOC owned
        infrastructure. Maintenance support facilities are outlined in Annex D.

        f. Tools, Test and Support Equipment. Normally, weapon system unique tools, test and support
        equipment shall be owned, maintained and provided by the ISS Contractor.

        g. Spares Management. The ISS-S Contractor will normally manage the weapons system
        spares, required to maintain system availability, unless there are demonstrable benefits to GOC
        ownership. Additional LRUs, SRUs, spares and R&O spares should be held by the OEI and be


                                                    12
                                                                                   2383-403-001
                                                                                   ISSP Use Study


        included under an obsolescence management program. For ISS-S, as a Deployable Weapons
        System, there will be a requirement to maintain a range of repair parts consistent with the
        assigned maintenance plan.

        h. Information Management/Information Technology (IM/IT) Systems. As a deployable system, it
        will be essential to maintain common materiel and acquisition support data within DND. When
        required, contractor information systems, especially for Technical Data Management, will require
        an interface between the Contractor‟s database and the DND data management system (DRMIS
        / (SAP)/Omega PS). Therefore, some form of interactive Electronic Information Environment will
        have to be established.

        i. Contractors in Theatre. Contractors will not normally be employed in a threat environment to
        perform weapon system support activities. Contractors may be deployed into the threat
        environment to support specific tasks. For ISS-S, this means that a Field Service Representative
        (FSR) capability is important and should be embodied in the support contract.

        j. Force Generation. The CF shall perform support activities that provide the skills and
        knowledge required for deployment and to maintain a deployment-to-force ratio of approximately
        1:3. For ISS-S this means that first and second line support shall be built into the training system.

        k. Logistics Support. The Canadian Forces Supply System (CFSS) and National Materiel
        Distribution System (NMDS) shall be used beyond the Contractor/DND handover point. The
        handover point for deployed operations will normally be in Canada. For normal, in-Canada
        operations, the handover point is to be selected to enable the required force generation of CF
        personnel.

        l. Design Change. The GOC will retain an appropriate capacity to design, manufacture, accept
        and embody equipment modifications, non-standard repairs and capability enhancements.

8.      TRAINING
8.1.    GENERAL
8.1.1 Training Needs Analysis (TNA).        The army will require Initial Cadre Training; Conversion
Training; and Regenerative/Sustainment Training for each of the three ISS Suites. Training requirements
identified in the Needs Assessment will be addressed through a concise and comprehensive Training
Needs Analysis. Training will be performance oriented and will be developed to meet CF operational
requirements in accordance with CFITES. In general, the army training strategy will require Initial Cadre
Training; Conversion Training; and Regenerative/Sustainment Training for each of the ISS Suites.

8.1.2 Initial Cadre Training. ISSP will employ a “Train the Trainer” concept for both operators and
maintainers. As part of the ILS portion of the implementation contract, the OEI will be required to conduct
training serials each for a cadre of operators and for a cadre of technical personnel. For Operator
Training, candidates will be trained in sufficient numbers to provide a cadre per Land Force Area. The
Combat Training Center (CTC) Infantry School (Center of Excellence), selected Project personnel,
Director Army Training (DAT), Director Land Requirements (DLR) and DSSPM staff. There may also be
an interest from the Tactics School concerning the development and sustainment of Tactics Techniques
and Procedures (TTPs) and SOPs. Technician Training will be provided by the Contractor in sufficient
numbers to provide for the Area Support Groups, CFSCE and technical staff at DSSPM. Estimated
numbers are at Appendix 3 – Training Concept – ISS-S.

8.1.3 Conversion Training. Conversion training will be required to achieve Initial Operational Capability
(IOC). This will require ILS deliverables of reproducible bilingual training packages from the Contractor
that include draft manuals prepared in accordance with CFITES standards and format.


                                                     13
                                                                                   2383-403-001
                                                                                   ISSP Use Study



8.1.4   Regenerative/Sustainment Training.

        a. Operator Sustainment. Sustainment training will be the responsibility of CTC School of
        Infantry as the Center of Excellence. It will provide input into all affected formal courses based on
        revisions to TTPs. Canadian Army training is identified, developed, designed, conducted,
        evaluated and validated using the methods and processes described in the A-P9-050-000 series
        of documents titled “The Canadian Forces Individual Training and Education System (CFITES)”.

        b. Operational Qualification. Operator training will be integrated into the Army Managed
        Readiness framework. The Managed Readiness is a plan in which Army units move through a
        three-phase cycle of readiness and employment every three years. These three phases are:
        training, high readiness/operations, and reconstitution/support. It is expected that qualification
        training (Personnel are expected to be trained to a skilled level of proficiency necessary to
        independently and safely perform duties and tasks.) and collective training will take place
        primarily during the training phase, although some individual training may take place during the
        reconstitution/support phase. Refresher training will take place during all phases. New
        equipment may only be inserted into units during their reconstitution/support phases so that it is in
        place for subsequent training. This process will be managed through a “Capability Release”
        process.

        c. Operational Certification. Task Force Commanders will be responsible for granting ISSP
        operational certification.

        d. Technician Training. Sustainment training for techs will be confirmed after the training needs
        assessment, but will be centered at the Canadian Forces School of Communications and
        Electronics (CFSCE).

8.2     TRAINING MATERIEL
8.2.1 The Contractor will provide course training material. Following the acceptance of training
materials, the CF will conduct training within its existing system, an outline of which appears at Annex G –
Canadian Forces Training Facilities. Training materiel will be required in bi-lingual format. Training
materiel is covered in detail under the Training Needs Analysis.

8.2.2   The WES will be used in conjunction with the ISS-S for training purposes.

8.3     TRAINING STANDARDS & PLANS
8.3.1 The standards to which ISS-S training will adhere, called Training Standards (TS), are controlled
by the Army. It is critical that the TS adhere to operational requirements in order to conduct performance
orientated training. Training Plans (TP) normally include such items as teaching points, training materials
and training modules. Training Plans are based upon the Training Standard but may be designed and
developed by the Army and/or the Original Equipment Integrator/ Original Equipment Manufacturer.

8.3.2 TTPs. Training requirements will be influenced by the System Acceptance and the Tactics,
Techniques and Procedures (TTPs). The System Acceptance Phases for the ISS Suites will be used to
develop TTPs which in turn will be used to define individual and collective performance requirements. It
can be expected that TTPs resulting from the Cycle 1 Suite may affect the requirements for the Cycle 2
Suite and the Cycle 3 Suite. These requirements will be incorporated by the PD staff into the SOR for the
Cycle 2 Suite and the Cycle 3 Suite. Training Plans and Standards may change with the cyclical
introduction of ISS-S and therefore, must be kept current.

9.      PERSONNEL
9.1     With the introduction of the ISS-S, which is not replacing an existing system but is replacing the
current personal radio, there will be an increase in manpower requirements as outlined below. Both
operational and support personnel will be affected. Primary military occupation groups are outlined in
Annex H – ISS-S Operator and Maintenance Personnel.

9.1.1 Field Force Impact. It is expected that there will be a marginal, but currently unmeasured,
increase in workload associated with the receipt, control, issue and repair cycle for the suites within the
Area Support Group and the units. However, the workload is not steady, as the ISS-S is a Task Force
issued item, but will occur along with the operational tempo. As such it is not steady state and it is
forecast that there will be no additional personnel required with in the Field Force. As above, there will be
an increase in workload associated with the Signals Management of the Soldier network, including
ComSec and this will have to be monitored.

9.1.2 Maintenance Staff. There will be a slight increase in workload associated with use of test
equipment, cable repair and LRU replacement at first line. This will need to be assessed as part of the
LSA.

9.1.3 Life Cycle Management and National Procurement. There will be an increase in workload
associated with the Life Cycle Materiel Management of the suites. Subject to verification, the following
personnel may be required to augment existing DGLEPM/DSSPM staff in order to provide the oversight
and management:

        a. MWO LCIS Tech;

        b. PG 2 Procurement/Finance Officer; and

        c.   MCpl Sup Tech.

10.     DEFINITION SUPPORT
10.1.1 GENERAL
10.1.1 Each of the three ISS Suites will have Definition Phase associated with it. DND personnel will be
assigned to assist in this development, but personnel will be rotated, so that we should not expect the
same personnel to be tasked repeatedly.

10.1.2 Definition Plan. A Definition Plan will be produced.

10.1.3 Location. The site is to be determined.

10.1.4 Transportation. The personnel and their personal kit will be transported as per the previous
SIREQ-TD trials with basic field kit.

10.1.5 Prototype Kit. The prototype ISS-S will be delivered to ISSP Det Toronto, inspected, and
forwarded to the required site(s).

11.      SUPPLY SUPPORT
11.1     GENERAL
11.1.1. Supply Support is an ILS process that is conducted by the Project Management Office (PMO)
using data provided by the Contractor. Initially, an Interim Spares List to support the fielding of the
equipment is required. A more formal listing of all the spares required by the CF to support the
authorized in-service repairs and maintenance operations will follow based upon LSA results. Spares
lists should be delivered sufficiently early so that spares acquisition can be integrated with production,
with the aim of having the correct spares on hand as the ISS-S is initially fielded and hopefully profiting
from advantageous spares pricing.

11.1.2 Figure 2 depicts the ISS-S overall spare parts provisioning process.

11.1.3 With the Suite issue in mind, the OEI will be expected to support the Cycle 1 Suite and Cycle 2
Suite for the life of these suites. LSA will determine the level of spares to be set aside. A buy back
negotiation should take place for those LRUs not used; noting that we may keep the equipment in training
even after Cycle 3 Suite is delivered.

11.2     SUPPLY SUPPORT POLICY
11.2.1 Supply Support plans will be based upon the provision of sufficient spares to support the
specified availability requirement of the ISS-S.

11.3    CANADIAN FORCES SUPPLY SYSTEM
11.3.1 The Canadian Forces Supply System (CFSS) is the systems of record employed to control and
manage supply materiel for the Department of National Defence. The CFSS application includes
interfacing with other DND applications, reports, tools, objects, and supporting databases. Each
application automates CF business transactions and eliminates manual management of CF supply
materiel. The CFSS interfaces with:

        a. Defence Resource Management Information System (DRMIS); and

        b. National Materiel Distribution System (NMDS).

        NOTE: MASIS has recently been combined with FMAS to become DRMIS.

11.4    DEFENCE RESOURCE MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM (DRMIS)
11.4.1. DRMIS will be on-line at about the time ISS-S equipment is delivered. DRMIS is based on
SAP/OMEGA PS. DRMIS is described in ANNEX I – Defence Resource Management Information System
(DRMIS). It is intended to support ISS-S in the DRMIS-CFSS-U environment. The data requirements of
these systems are not perfectly clear at this time. The ISSP ILS staff must liaise closely with Director
Land Equipment Program (DLEPS) Staff. In conjunction with the (DLEPS 4)/Project Management Office
DRMIS, ISSP ILS will establish a suitable list of data elements for the Logistic Support Analysis

11.5.1 Codification of equipment and spares (including consumables and repairables) is a mandatory
requirement under the terms of STANAGs 3150 and 3151. An overview of the North Atlantic Treaty
Organization (NATO) codification system is attached as ANNEX J – NATO Classification System. It is
expected that other user countries will already have codified some of the ISS-S equipment therefore
cross reference with the NATO Maintenance and Supply Agency (NAMSA) and US (FEDLOG) systems is
required.

12.     SUPPORT EQUIPMENT
12.1. GENERAL
12.1.1 Current maintenance policy is to make maximum use of operator/technician initiated Built in
Training (BIT). The core computer/visual display should come with an auto diagnostic program at start up
that checks system parameter and indicates battery level. Battery integrity and charge level will be critical
for mission duration.

12.2    TOOLS AND TEST EQUIPMENT
12.2.1 There may be a requirement for special tools and test equipment (STTE) at the unit level for
cable continuity checks, battery integrity and verification of BIT results. There may be a requirement for
                 ND
STTE at the 2 LINE Support level to facilitate LRU replacement. If so, distribution of sets must be
sufficient to support movement of equipment or move with the equipment.

12.3    EXISTING CAPABILITIES
12.3.1 A listing of applicable common tools held by the LCIS Technician at support maintenance
operations is included at ANNEX K – Common Tools and Test Equipment.

13. PACKAGING, HANDLING, STORAGE AND TRANSPORTATION
(PHST)
13.1    GENERAL

13.1.1 The concept of employment for the ISS-S within a Task Force may require that the ISS-S be
stored and transported within portable storage containers. These containers must be transportable by air,
rail, surface and ship. All spare parts and test equipment must be packaged so that they may be
transported without incurring damage. ANNEX L – Packaging, Handling and Storage (PHST) outlines the
requirements.

13.2    PACKAGING POLICY
13.2.1 The contractor will be required to identify all constraints to packaging, handling and storage for
the future system‟s spares and support equipment. All spares for use by service repair agencies will be
packaged in accordance with requirements detailed in ANNEX L and the contract documentation.
ANNEX L provides some data on CF packaging requirements and lists the applicable CFTOs.

14.     TECHNICAL PUBLICATIONS
14.1. GENERAL
14.1.1 PMO ISSP strategy is to acquire, preferably through an electronic interface, appropriate interim
operator and technical manuals from the Contractor. Cycle 1 Suite and Cycle 2 Suite interim manuals
may be fairly basic to limit costs, with the Cycle 3 Suite manual providing the full capability and diagrams
necessary to support DND assigned tasks. If traditional publications are procured, with the ISS-S, the
CFTOs will be delivered to users from the CF Publications Depot (CFPD) either as electronic copy (CD-
ROM), hard copies or via on-line access to the repository maintained by Director Supply Chain
Operations (DSCO). OEI Manuals will be developed to reflect the Canadian Maintenance Concept, using
the CFTO format only if the commercial publications are found unsuitable. Some information on CFTO
requirements is included at ANNEX M – Canadian Forces Technical Orders (CFTOs).

14.2. BILINGUAL REQUIREMENT
14.2.1 ISS-S maintenance manuals, operator manuals, training manuals and training data will be
required to be translated into bilingual format (Canadian English and French) in accordance with the
requirements outlined at ANNEX M.

14.3    CFTO PROCUREMENT

14.3.1 Dependant on the level of effort required, CFTOs may or may not be produced depending on the
level of instructions required by DND as determined by the ILSM. CFTOs shall reflect the validated ISS-
S Maintenance Plan. The CFTO generation flow diagram is depicted in Figure 3.

                              Appendix B1 - MISSION PROFILE

1.    OPERATIONAL MODE SUMMARY
1.1 The Operational Mode Summary provides a compilation of the missions, operating conditions and
environments the ISS-S population will expect to see over its useful life-cycle. It is described from the
perspective of Mission Cycles / Life Expectancy, Mobility Modes, and Climatic Conditions.

1.2 Mission Cycles / Life Expectancy

1.2.1 The ISS-S will follow the mission profile of the typical Battlefield Day for one hundred and eighty
(180) consecutive days while on a TF Deployment (i.e. a six (6) month operational deployment). This TF
Deployment Cycle will be preceded by a Pre-deployment Training Cycle of six (6) months and succeeded
by a Reconstitution Cycle consisting of three (3) months shipment, repair and storage followed by three
(3) months of low intensity training.

1.2.2 In the Pre-deployment Training Cycle, the level of intensity will begin at a lower level than that of
the TF Deployment Cycle, with the ISS-S primarily being used in a classroom and short training exercise
setting. However, usage intensity will increase over time to the TF Deployment Cycle tempo leading up to
the actual Task Force deployment. Thus, the Pre-deployment Training Cycle is divided into two three (3)
month segments based on the level of intensity of the training. The first segment will consist of medium
intensity training with typical system usage being eight (8) operating hours per day, five (5) days per
week. The second segment will be high intensity training with system usage simulating that of the TF
Deployment Battlefield Day operating twenty four (24) hours per day, seven (7) days per week. The
training exercises of this second segment can be expected to expose the ISS-S to all the environmental
conditions and operating modes of a Task Force deployment.

1.2.3 The TF Deployment Cycle consists of one hundred and eighty (180) consecutive Battlefield Days.
During this cycle the ISS-S will be employed world-wide across the NATO defined climatic zones of C0 to
C2, A1 to A3, B1 to B3 and M1 to M3 (as per NATO Standardization Agreement (STANAG) 2895 Edition
1) and operating environments of desert, jungle, mountain, tundra, arctic and high urban density terrain. A
summary of the climatic environments is provided in Table 2-5 below.

1.2.4 The Reconstitution cycle consists of two three (3) month segments, where the first segment
includes the shipping of the ISS-S back from the TF Deployment theatre of operation, necessary repairs
completed and storage of the system in a benign environment under Basic climatic conditions. In the
second segment, it is expected the ISS-S will come out of storage and be issued for low intensity
individual/collective training. This training will typically consist of four (4) system operating hours per day,
five (5) days per week.

                          Table 1 ISS-S Usage Profile by Mission Cycle
1.2.6 The ISS-S will be expected to perform five (5) of these combined cycles (Pre-deployment Training /
TF Deployment / Reconstitution) in consecutive order throughout its life. Thus, the expected Service Life
of the ISS-S will be eight (8) years accumulating an expected 36,420 hours of system operation.
1.3 Mobility Modes
1.3.1 Table 2 shows the mobility modes the ISS-S will be subjected to and the expected relative duration
of time, by Mission Cycle, throughout its life in those various modes.

1.     THREATS
1.1    The ISS-S will come close to, or be in contact with, hostile forces, as was demonstrated in some
recent combat and peacekeeping operations. This has been the case during CF operations in
Afghanistan. The ISS-S will be used in the combat role and therefore will possibly be degraded by
exposure to:

       a. EMI/EMP;

       b. Rifle round / shrapnel strike;

       c.   Vibration/ heavy fall / shock;

       d. Transportation vibration / abrasion;

       e. Chemicals / Compounds / Contaminants;

       f.   Snagging; and/or

       g. Adverse Climatic Conditions.

                                  Appendix B3 - USER UNITS
1.      A total of six sets of ISS-S will be acquired. These suites will be issued to units forming part of the
Land component of a deploying Task Force. Until such a Task Force is formed, suites will need to be
maintained in grouped sets as stock and will not be assigned to specific areas/units on a permanent
basis. Units will receive their suites once designated for deployment. As such, there will be a requirement
for orderly packaging, shipping and verification of design/modification status of all ISS-S.

 2.     DLR has provided the following draft distribution list of quantity ISS-S, required per Task Force,
for planning purposes. (Update Table Quantities)

                      Appendix B4 - ARMY TRANSFORMATION
1.       The Canadian Forces has undergone a transformation to realign with the current threats of the
post-cold war environment. The Army has developed more efficient and effective methodologies for
training and management of equipment. This has a direct impact upon the fielding of the ISS-S and how
it will be supported domestically and in international theatres of operation. The following lists the
transformational activities that have been implemented includes:

       a. Whole Fleet Management (WFM). The aim is management of equipment in response to
       operational and training imperatives. It is a concept of variable equipment allocation aimed at
       economizing resources and meeting assigned readiness Defence Plan (DP) tasks. Equipment is
       assigned only as required and for as long as required. It features centralized control of
       equipment allocation based on need. There will be a significant impact on the initial distribution of
       ISS-S and long-term steady state distribution. The majority of ISS-S will be centrally located at
       CMTCs for pre-deployment training. The overall distribution will be Command driven, rationalized
       holdings determined by training and operational requirements within a Managed Readiness Plan
       (MRP) and optimized for TSSU sustainment Management will be centralized with control at
       Army level.

       b. Army Support Review (ASR). The ASR centralized all Brigade maintenance resources and
       provides first line support on an as required basis. The MRP will have a major impact on the
       distribution of ISS-S support elements. Equipment will be withdrawn from units in restitution,
       repaired and stored.

       c. Joint Support Group (JSG). The JSG provides an operational level support organization
       capable of supporting contingency operations, domestic and international. With selected
       resources assigned to the JSG on a full time basis, augmented as necessary with forces
       earmarked, equipped and trained for their mission of providing operational level support to
       contingency operations, the JSG provides a deployable, composite, joint support formation.
       Once deployed, it serves as the in-theatre link between strategic support provided from Canada
       and the support provided to the Combatant Components of a CF Task Force. JSG is also
       responsible for coordinating the provision of support from Canada to ongoing missions. Drawing
       from available national support and from support resources available in the area of operations,
       the JSG provides or arranges for operational level support to CF contingency operations.
       Composite in nature, it comprises the full range of health services, military engineering, logistics,
       land equipment maintenance support and military police required to meet the operational support
       needs of the specific contingency operation.




                                                 B4 - 1/1
                                                                                  Annex C
                                                                                  2383-403-001
                                                                                  ISSP Use Study


                  ANNEX C - MAINTENANCE CONCEPT (ISS-S)
1.     GENERAL
1.1      The general concept of support is to embed Systems Management, Systems Support and
Deployable Logistics into the Field Forces sufficient to support the ISS-S at an operational tempo for
deployed periods in excess of seven (7) months. The concept of support will adhere to the fundamentals
and levels of existing Combat Service Support (CSS) as detailed in the Land Force Sustainment doctrine
and will follow the current Land Engineering Maintenance System (LEMS) policy and procedures. Trained
Combat Service Support (CSS) personnel will be responsible to sustain the ISS-S for replenishment and
maintenance during training and deployed operations.

1.2    CF technicians must be able to perform all necessary repairs while deployed on operations. The
ISS-S will rely on the following three lines of maintenance to support its operation:

       a. First Line - Maintenance support integral to the user unit (if any);

       b. Second Line - Maintenance support provided by in-theatre formation/Area resources; and

       c.   Third Line - Maintenance support provided by industry.

2.     ISS-S SPECIFIC CONSIDERATIONS
2.1    The following design principles and factors, specific to the ISS-S, will have an affect on the
maintenance concept, practices and policies, and will need to be taken into consideration:

       a.     Engineering and maintenance design concepts will be optimized to enable the ISS-S to
       economically meet operational availability requirements by minimizing and simplifying
       maintenance through onboard diagnostics, redundancy, robust modular design, graceful
       degradation, etc;

       b.       The ISS-S is to have an Operational Availability of 99%;

       c.     The need to deploy additional special tools/support equipment, operational and support
       personnel and spares (systems, sub-systems and repair parts) will be limited;

       d.      Maintenance activities, both by the operator and the maintainer, will be conducted without
       the need for increasing the establishment and with minimized training;

       e.      The ISS-S will incorporate an intuitive Built In Test (BIT) functionality to detect, diagnose
       and isolate system faults;

       f.       The ISS-S will be designed so that the soldier operator can detect, isolate and remove a
       faulty Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) and replace, configure and check-out the new LRU. The SOR
       requires this to be done within 15 minutes to restore the system and an additional 15 minutes to
       restore full service during a mission;

       g.       While soldiers will be required to perform preliminary inspections and defined User
       Maintenance tasks, only skilled maintenance personnel will be authorized to perform required
       repairs to LRUs;




                                                 C-1/6
                                                                                         Annex C
                                                                                         2383-403-001
                                                                                         ISSP Use Study

        h.      At the Task Force level, First and Second Line maintenance of the ISS-S C4I equipment
        and components will be conducted by Land Communications and Information Systems (LCIS),
                                                             1
        Electronic – Optronic (EO) or Materials technicians;

        i.      In addition to maintenance, the System Management function, consisting of network
        establishment and management, software configuration management, system configuration, and
        other related activities, will be conducted by Signals personnel and will be under the overall
        responsibility of the organization‟s Signals Officer;

        j.     In general, maintenance or reconfiguration will be conducted as far forward in the
        maintenance chain as practicable;

        k.      The manufacturers recommended preventive and corrective maintenance actions and
        servicing procedures, based on the Logistics Support Analysis (LSA), will be used as the basis for
        maintenance activities;

        l.       With an emphasis on “repair by replacement” and a sound preventive maintenance
        program, the corrective maintenance program will enable the completion of authorized repairs, as
        rapidly and economically as possible;

        m.       Owing to the expected high level of integration of the electronic components (Field
        Programmable Gated Arrays, Application Specific Integrated Circuits etc) and possible security
        issues, it is not expected that attempts will be made to change components on boards or within
        sealed units. Thus, First and Second Line maintenance will consist of the removal and
        replacement of faulty LRUs and possibly the repair/replacement of damaged, worn or otherwise
        unserviceable external components of a sealed LRU. Replacement “in-the-field” is the preferred
        approach with the equipment being sent to the Third Line support for repair; and

        n.      To facilitate the Third Line maintenance to be performed by the Contractor, faulty
        equipment beyond repair of the Task Force First and Second Line maintenance will be
        backloaded to a designated Maintenance organization to confirm faults found, particularly in the
        area of software and related hardware malfunctions (i.e. printed circuit boards), prior to
        forwarding the faulty equipment to the Contractor.

        o.     It is anticipated that a designated Maintenance organization will perform Quality
        Assurance functions for those equipments returned to the supply system from the Contractor.

3.      ORGANIZATIONAL RESPONSIBILITIES FOR MAINTENANCE

3.1     1ST LINE SUPPORT (UNIT LEVEL)
3.1.1 At the unit level, operators and integral support technicians, if established, will support the ISS-S.
Anticipated support functions can be summarized as follows:

        a. Operator functions. Operator Maintenance, which should not exceed on average 15
        minutes/day, less power regeneration, includes the following activities:

             i.   Pre-operational inspection and checks;




1
  LCIS technicians are usually associated with communication devices such as radios, whilst EO technicians work
with electro-optical equipment such as binoculars, laser range finders and thermal imagers. Material Technicians are
responsible for the CTS, Load Carriage and Ballistic Protection.


                                                      C-2/6
                                                                                 Annex C
                                                                                 2383-403-001
                                                                                 ISSP Use Study

           ii. Cleaning and preventive maintenance operations, based on Contractor instructions, to
           ensure readiness of the equipment;

           iii. Faulty LRU/Sub-system replacement, including fault detection and isolation, removal,
           replacement, and confirmation of repair;

           iv. Perform initial and ongoing user configuration and management;

           v.    Ancillary Equipment/Battery replacement; and

           vi. Reporting of system failures and usage information to maintenance personnel.

       b. Technician functions. Technicians in the supporting maintenance platoons will perform Level
       One repairs and possibly some assigned Level Two repair activities, as determined by the
       Contractor. The following tasks should not exceed, on average, ½ hour:

           i. Maintaining stocks of spares and repair parts required for operation, servicing and
           maintenance;

           ii.   Maintenance of power sub-systems (i.e. battery charger);

           iii. Finding/Isolating faults;

           vi. Removal and replacement of faulty LRUs

           v.    Performance of limited repairs to LRUs (according to the LSA); and

           vi. Recording of maintenance data and real time use information.

       c. System Management. This will encompass the establishment of the network, the LCSS
       interface and updating of the network, network security and Crypto control, software configuration
       management, and system configuration in order to ensure planning, monitoring and controlling of
       the system during operations. Configuration of the ISS-S will be performed by Signals planning
       staff that will set up the ISS-S configuration to load onto the ISS-S prior to its use whether in
       training or actual operations. The planning and configuration is typically done in a tactical
       headquarters and forward operating base environment with the configuration files being loaded
       onto the ISS-S just prior to use.

       d. Electronic Fault Diagnostics. The fault diagnostics capability of the ISS-S may be facilitated
       by the use of the Built in Test (BIT) functionality. Preferably, a system failure message or
       notification would indicate the faulty LRU on a display screen. In the event where this method is
       unpractical or unaffordable, the system will be diagnosed to LRU level with the help of Trouble
       Shooting Diagrams and the use of common existing In-House test equipment; and

       e. Cable Repairs: These will be high wear item. Continuity checks on cables and integrity of
       connectors will be essential to mission success. System repair may involve replacement/repair of
       connectors; manufacture of new cables in theater and/or repair of receptacles.

3.2    2ND LINE SUPPORT (UNIT LEVEL)
3.2.1 Technicians in the supporting maintenance organizations will perform defined Level One and
assigned Level Two repair activities, which should not exceed one hour on average, as recommended by
the OEI/OEM and agreed to by DND, such as:

                                                                                         Annex C
                                                                                         2383-403-001
                                                                                         ISSP Use Study

             ii.   Fault isolation and repair by replacement of LRUs and possibly some SRUs;

             iii. Performance of limited repairs to LRUs;

             iv. Cable repairs as described above;

             v.    Repair of power sub-systems (i.e. battery charger);

             vi. Reconditioning/minor repair of textiles (i.e. vests, pouches);

             vii. Maintenance of electro-optical sub-systems (i.e. NVG and interfaces; LRF, micro-UAVs,
                     acquired weapons sensors);

             viii. Limited reconditioning of spares;

             ix. Operation and maintenance of any Special Test Equipment; and

             x.    Recording of maintenance data and real time use information.

3.3 2ND LINE SUPPORT (NATIONAL SUPPORT ELEMENT/MAINTENANCE

                                                                                2383-403-001
                                                                                ISSP Use Study

3.8.1 All Cycle 1 Suite and Cycle 2 Suite components not required for Cycle 3 Suite may be returned to
the OEI for salvage. It is not planned (or funded) to retain any of these systems within the Primary
Reserve or training system. Any obsolete spares in the system will be purged through CADC or returned
to the OEI for credit of environmental disposal, depending on HAZMAT designation.

3.9     DISPOSAL
2.8.1 Parts of the ISS-S are likely to be attractive for non-military, non-allied military forces and for
terrorist groups. Some items are designated as controlled under ITAR and the Canadian Controlled
Goods Regulation with a demilitarization code (DMC) of F. All inspection of items is to be performed by a
DND Support Maintenance organization and the identified non-serviceable items are to be returned to the
OEI/OEM for repair, cannibalization or scrap.


3.10    MAINTENANCE EFFECTIVENESS OBJECTIVES
3.10.1 The overall availability requirement, as stated in the Statement of Requirements (SOR) for the
                  st
ISS-S, is 99%. 1 Line mean repair times should be limited to one-half hour (includes diagnostics time)
      ND
and 2 Line mean repair times should be limited to 1 hour (includes diagnostics time). Maintenance
induced failures should be minimized.

     Appendix D2 - PRELIMINARY ISS-S INFRASTRUCTURE IMPACT
                             ANALYSIS
1.      INTRODUCTION
1.1       There will be a total of six complete sets of the ISS-S (See Appendix B3). Since the ISS-S will be
used primarily on operations, there will be a need to hold the sets centrally and for issues to be made to
the Area designated to mount the Task Force. Issues to the TF will be made from the Area Support
Group in time for pre-deployment certification training. Additional suites will be held at CF Schools for
training.

2.      AIM
2.1      The aim of this study was to determine the likely infrastructure impact of fielding the ISS-S and
allocate a rough order of magnitude estimate for infrastructure in the project budget.

3.      DISCUSSION
3.1       Storage. Given that the suites of equipment will not be permanently held at units, there should be
no requirement to increase the size of unit QM stores. An idea to be examined is the use of a mobile
container as portable/shippable storage. Compatibility with the proposed LHS vehicle, which uses a
standard ISO container size, would be an asset. Sea container costs are on the order of 20K, with some
shelving to be added. This will enable rapid movement / shipping/storage / location at a maintenance
facility / and reconstitution activities at the OEI. Investigation of heat / humidity requirements will be
required.

3.2     Maintenance / Tooling. There may be a requirement for small test equipment. However, at most,
this would comprise a small toolbox and will have no material impact on facilities. There may be a
requirement to add it to SEV kits or Mobile Repair Teams (MRT).

3.3      Spares. The range of spares required is small. At most a few LRUs and cables and accessories
will be required. No major impact is foreseen on storage at units, Base or MRT level.

4.      CONCLUSION
4.1     It is anticipated that there will be no requirement to build new infrastructure for this project.
However, it is likely that up to eight sea containers may have to be modified in order to provide portable
storage, shipping and handling. Rough order of magnitude costs for this type of infrastructure
modification have been estimated at 8 x $30K for $240K total and will be confirmed through a more
detailed analysis during the Project‟s Definition Phase.

                      ANNEX E - TRAINING CONCEPT – (ISS-S)
1.      SCOPE
1.1      The Army has endorsed the Army Systems Approach to Training (ASAT) as its methodology for
training development. ASAT is a training information management system that provides the capability of
task creation and task management of training products. It also has the capability of producing training
products in a report format. The functional areas in ASAT include Combined Arms Training Strategy
(CATS), Collective, Individual, Lesson Plans and Courses. The CATS Module produces Combined Arms
Training Strategies to include resourcing information. (NOTE: The Doctrine Module is no longer available
in ASAT after Version 4.42.) That functionality may be forthcoming in future versions of the Training
Development Configuration (TDC). This new effort may be the replacement for the ASAT program. The
Collective Module allows training developers to create collective and drill tasks, Mission Training Plans
(MTP) and Drill Books. The Individual Module allows for development of individual tasks, Soldier Training
Publications (STP or Soldier‟s Manuals), Training Support Packages (TSP) and Lesson Plans. Also, the
Individual Module allows for training developers to create and generate Courses (Program of
Instruction/Course Administrative Data (POI/CAD) reports.

1.2      The ASAT is composed of six stages: Analysis, Design, Development, Conduct, Evaluation and
Validation. The Directorate of Army Training (DAT) is responsible for maintaining a training/equipment
database to monitor the entire training coordination process. The Directorate of Land Requirements
(DLR) is responsible for incorporating the Army training requirements into the SOR and guarding the
Army‟s training requirements during contract negotiations. The PMO ISSP is responsible for the
development of Initial Cadre Training (ICT), Conversion Training (CT) and Familiarization Training (FT)
courses and materials; as well as ensuring that the designated training establishments are capable of
conducting Regenerative Training (RT).

1.3     The ISS-S consists of numerous components forming the suite with attachments in the form of
ISS-S subsystems, pouches and additional portable sensors such as micro UAVs. The training to be
developed must take into account the integrated nature of the suites and accessories as they work
together within a Task Force. Training will be required for the following classifications:

        a. Operators. The ISS-S will be utilized within a Task Force on deployed operations. Operators
           will be mostly Combat Arms, and predominately Infantry. Some training on the ISS-S will be
           aimed at Combat Service Support trades assigned to operate within a Task Force on
           operations. A special category of operators will be the Systems Managers responsible for
           Communications and Comsec.

        b. Maintainers. Training will be focused on LCIS Technicians at CFSCE and EO Technicians at
           CFSEME. Some sets from stock will be required to assist in training.

2.      AIM
2.1      The aim of the ISS-S Training Concept is to detail training activities that are to be completed to
satisfy the initial training requirements of the CF.

2.1.1 Limitations to the Aim. The ISS-S Training Concept has been developed, by the PMO ISSP, prior
to the completion of a Training Needs Analysis, which should be performed by DAT (and the Schools), in
cooperation with PMO ISSP, to ensure that all aspects of the ISS-S training are properly planned and
executed.

to record that a soldier has received training IAW with required training standards and training plans.
Qualification serves to add credibility and confidence by marking training objective, quantifiable,
traceable, and formally recording the training in existing CF Human Resources Information Management
Systems (HRMS). Furthermore, the TF Commander will have evidence and proof that soldiers are
properly trained.

3.4.2 Certification. Upon completion of ISS-S training, soldiers will be granted skill certification by the
Task Force Commander to justify performance competency. ISS-S training certification will be valid for a
period of 6 months after training has been administered or if significant changes in technology and
procedures deem received training obsolete.

       ANNEX I – DEFENCE RESOURCE MANAGEMENT INFORMATION
                          SYSTEM (DRMIS)
1.      MISSION
1.1      The mission of the DRMIS Project was to provide a Department of National Defence (DND)
integrated Materiel Acquisition and Support Information System (MASIS) and Financial Management and
Accounting System (FMAS) that enables the cost-effective optimization of a weapon/equipment system
availability throughout its life-cycle.

2.      OBJECTIVES
2.1.    The specific objectives of DRMIS were to:

        a. support CF operational activities by optimizing equipment availability and the associated
        support costs throughout the equipment life-cycle;

        b. enable the ADM(Mat) vision for business renewal; and

        c. provide an integrated information system that allows users timely access to needed
        information in electronic format. As a single, integrated system, DRMIS will link financial,
        engineering and maintenance information from the front-line, to individual units, headquarters,
        other government departments and industry, using off-the-shelf software developed by private
        industry.

2.2.    DRMIS operates in all CF environments and is employed on all types of missions. It is an end-to-
end system operating from front line to headquarters in support of equipment throughout its life cycle
(conception to disposal). DRMIS is capable of deployment in an autonomous mode at extremely short
notice anywhere in the world.

2.3.    For all environments, the information captured at the front end must be available for
dissemination and analysis at any point in the organization, from the front end to local and central
command and support organizations. DRMIS must be capable of exchanging information with industry.
This capability has become even more important as support services are increasingly contracted to
industry as opposed to being done "in-house".

ANNEX J - NATO CODIFICATION SYSTEM
1.       PURPOSE

1.1.    The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Codification System, used by Canada for military
supply management purposes, has been adopted by civilian departments, to provide a standardized
system for the identification, classification and numbering of stocked items. The system provides a
uniform language for all federal government supply operations.

2.       MATERIEL IDENTIFICATION RESPONSIBILITIES

2.1      General
2.2.1. Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) and the Department of National
Defence (DND) share the responsibilities for providing materiel identification and related services to
civilian departments. User departments are responsible for the appropriate use of assigned numbers.

2.2.     DND Responsibilities
2.2.1. The Directorate of Supply Chain Operations (DSCO) in National Defence uses the NATO
Codification System to identify and catalogue materiel for civilian departments in the same way as DND
materiel. The same Item Entry Control technique applies. For items not qualifying for NATO Stock
Number (NSN) assignment, Permanent Stock Control Numbers (PSCNs) are assigned if an accounting
number is required by the civilian department.

2.2.2.   DND has an average ten-day turnaround for items catalogued on behalf of PWGSC.

2.2.3. DND is responsible for the policy and procedures to be followed as well as the standard forms to
be used. This includes criteria for materiel selection for stock number assignments, preparation and
maintenance of a cataloguing manual and necessary briefings and detailed instructions. DND also
advises and assists departments on cataloguing and materiel identification and provides systems
surveillance.

2.2.4. DND deals directly with civilian departments wishing to use the NATO Codification System and
carries out a preliminary assessment of the civilian department's ability to implement the system. Where
applicable, DND may implement processing schedules and quotas for stock number assignment. It also
monitors workloads being imposed by the civilian departments and provides a coordination point and
liaison service for problems between DND and civilian departments. These departments send
Cataloguing Request Forms directly to DND, which responds to requests or asks for additional data
and/or clarification from the department.

2.2.5.   DND/DSCO is responsible for the assignment of new user codes and the maintenance of old
ones.

2.2.6. Unless agreed in writing, no financial obligation is imposed on the participants except that each is
responsible for funding costs incurred in its own interests.

2.3.     PWGSC Responsibilities
2.3.1 PWGSC is responsible for item identification and assignment of stock numbers for catalogues
issued by the department and for some printed matter.




                                                 J -1/3
                                                                                    Annex J
                                                                                    2383-403-001
                                                                                    ISSP Use Study


2.3.2 The Supply Program Management Sector, Supply Management Directorate (SMD) in PWGSC is
responsible for the item identification services in the department.

2.3.3   SMD coordinates and liaises cataloguing activities between PWGSC and DND.

2.3.4   SMD catalogues (upon request) printed matter that is peculiar to one department.

2.4.    Civilian Department Responsibilities
2.4.1 Civilian Departments must use assigned stock numbers for all appropriate materiel management
functions. As far as practicable, user departments are to confine requirements to items covered by those
numbers and continue codification maintenance.

3.      STOCK NUMBERS
3.1.    NATO Stock Numbers (NSNs) consist of 13 digits (e.g.: 9999-88-123-4567) and are divided into
three parts as follows:

        a. First Part (9999) – four digits denoting the NATO Supply Class;

        b. Second Part (88) – two digits identifying the NATO country which originates the stock
        number; e.g. 21 = Canada; and

        c.   Third Part (123-4567) – seven digits, non-significant item identification number.

3.2     Permanent Stock Control Numbers (PSCNs) consist of 13 characters with the same first and
second parts as above. However, the third part is a combination of alpha/numeric characters with the first
three always alpha.

3.3      The Treasury Board Materiel Coding Standard (MCS) states that: “The NATO materiel
identification code, the NSN, will be the standard materiel assets code for departmental assets
management systems in the federal government. This standard must be used for the design and
implementation of new materiel coding systems”.

3.4      Within the above framework, consider for NSN, only those items which are required on a
repetitive and continuous basis and/or are subject to supply accounting within a department's supply
system. PSCNs may be assigned for items not qualifying for NSN assignments, if you require an
accounting number.

3.5      Contact the DND /DSCO who will arrange a meeting to discuss the NATO Codification System
and its current or planned use.

4.      REQUEST FOR CATALOGUING ACTION

4.1     Form DSS-MAS 1547
4.1.1 The Request for Cataloguing Action, form DSS-MAS 1547, stock number 7540-21-904-5750 is a
single-part form used within PWGSC to request a new NATO Stock Number or to change an existing
number for all commodities except printed forms.

4.2.    Form DSS-MAS 10271
4.2.1. The Printed Item Entry Request (PIER), form DSS-MAS 10271, stock number 7540-21-859-0718
is used for forms and other printed matter only, for the following actions:

        a. To introduce a new item;

        b. To replace, revise, cancel or delete a catalogued item; and

        c.   To effect other actions as required.

5.      CATALOGUES AND RELATED MATERIEL IDENTIFICATION INFORMATION
5.1    PWGSC publishes a number of catalogues for commonly used items such as tires and tubes and
the Security Equipment e-catalogue. The Department also prepares and issues catalogues tailored to
customer requirements on a cost-recovery basis.

5.2     Departments may also subscribe to the Canadian Government Catalogue of Materiel data file,
which has descriptive, and reference/specification data on each item of supply catalogued for the military
and registered user departments. DND reproduces the file on CD ROM every two months and makes it
available to authorized users.

              ANNEX L - PACKAGING, HANDLING, STORAGE AND
                         TRANSPORTATION (PHST)
1.      DEFINITIONS
1.1     The following PHST definitions apply to the ISSP program:

1.1.1. Packaging: The operations involved in the preparation of material for distribution, transportation,
storage and delivery to the user. The processes and procedures are used to protect material from
deterioration, damage, or both. The term "packaging" includes cleaning, drying, preserving, packing,
marking and unitisation.

1.1.2. Handling: Physical manipulation, directly or indirectly, by people (characterised as lifting, sliding,
hoisting, lowering, or moving items on dollies or pallets through the use of manpower, tugs, cranes,
forklifts, hoists and automated systems).

1.1.3. Storage: The act of storing, or the state of being stored; the keeping or placing of property in a
warehouse, shed, open area or other designated facility.

1.1.4. Transportation: The act of moving material by carrier via railways, highways, waterways,
pipelines, oceans and airways.

1.1.5. Reusable container: A shipping and storage container which may be used, after at least one
shipment and opening, to re-ship an item or a collection of items with the same item description but not
necessarily the exact item or items initially shipped. Container reusability is divided into several
sub-categories including fully reusable and special-to-type.

1.1.6. Fully Reusable Container: The design features are such that, allowing for attrition and providing
appropriate intermediate maintenance, the container's expected service life should equal the service life
of the container's contents. This is provided the contents has its own specific official nomenclature and is
considered a separate item of supply with an appropriate NATO Stock Number (NSN). An example is:
shock mounted metal containers for high value replacement assemblies such as engines and
transmissions.

1.1.7. Special-To-Type Container: The design is such that its nesting cavity is formed so that the
container accommodates one particular instrument only.

2.      PURPOSE AND SCOPE
2.1     Efficient PHST has significant impact on system effectiveness, reliability, maintainability,
corrosion prevention and control, and safety. For major equipment, the PHST consumes a measurable
percentage of overall cost and is, therefore, a significant element of life cycle investment.

2.2.     The PHST is intended for packaging of equipment and spares that are expected to enter the
military distribution system. The Department of National Defence (DND) should never specify packaging
for items that remain the responsibility of the contractor. PHST requirements will be identified in the
Logistics Support Analysis Record (LSAR).

2.3     When acquiring Commercial-Off-the-Shelf or Military-Off-the-Shelf equipment and spares, the
PHST processes and procedures developed for other countries‟ military forces should be considered
acceptable for DND unless DND‟s environment differs significantly. The packaging specification D-LM-
008-036/SF-000 (DND Minimum Requirements for Manufacturer's Standard Pack) should be sufficient for
these equipments unless DND has specific PHST concerns that need to be addressed.

                                                  L-1/2
                                                                                 ANNEX L
                                                                                 2383-403-001
                                                                                 ISSP Use Study


3.      PACKAGING
3.1.    The US equivalent of D-LM-008-036/SF-000 is ASTM-D3951, which includes the minimum
requirements for physical and mechanical protection (safe delivery) of commercially available products.

3.2     For items that are commercially available in "bulk" packs (quantities > 1), the manufacturer
should be required to provide “quantity per unit pack” data in the provisioning documentation. Given
DND‟s relatively small pools of equipment, spread out over a large geographical area, large unit packs
are often neither not appropriate nor cost effective. Where DND requires a unit of issue of “EACH” the
contract shall clearly indicate this requirement.

3.3.   Package marking is important for proper identification and accounting of all items entering the
CFSS. CF packaging specification D-LM-008-002/SF-001, Marking for Storage and Shipment, details
DND‟s requirements.

3.4.    Any additional/special marking requirements should be included in the contract. This might
include - year of manufacture, shelf-life (in accordance with a periodic maintenance schedule),
specification number, serial number.

3.5.     All markings shall be in bilingual format in accordance with the Official Languages Act. However,
if bilingual item nomenclatures are not available to the Contractor, DND should be providing the
"approved" bilingual data to be used.

4.      REUSABLE CONTAINERS
4.1     Requirements for Logistical and Tactical Containers to support the shipping and handling of the
ISS-S assemblies will be detailed in the Performance Specification. To support ISS-S Line Replaceable
Units (LRUs) shipping and handling between maintenance lines, fully reusable or special-to-type
containers should be used. All metal containers are to be painted using the same colour and type of
paints used for the prime mission vehicle.

5.      PALLETIZATION
5.1     Palletization is requested in DND requisitions to effect off-loading of transport vehicles by
mechanical means, to enable faster receipt and issue processing and to affect more efficient materiel
storage. The palletization clause (D6010D) is inserted in DND procurement documents on the insistence
of supply depots.

     ANNEX M - CANADIAN FORCES TECHNICAL ORDERS (CFTOs)
1.      OFFICIAL LANGUAGES
1.1      The ISS-S operating and maintenance technical publications shall be procured and maintained in
both official languages seeing as they meet the following criteria:

        a. Related to the health, safety or security of personnel who will use the equipment;

        b. Required for training purposes; and

        c. Required for the operation or maintenance of equipment to be used in Bilingual units, other
        than a Headquarters, or in both English language units and French language units.

1.2     All publications not meeting the criteria stated above may be procured in one official language
only without the need of a waiver.

2.      NATIONAL DEFENCE INDEX OF DOCUMENTATION
2.1     As the Departmental authority for the National Defence Index of Documentation (NDID), the
Directorate of Technical Information and Codification Services (DTICS) is responsible for the assignment
of NDID numbers and for the administration and management of the NDID coding structure and
database.

2.2.   The National Defence Index of Documentation (NDID) is a 14-character coding system that is
used for the identification of equipment-related data programs, publications and personnel support
documentation. The purpose of the NDID is:

        a. to provide a standard methodology for the identification of publications; and

        b. to provide a means to manage and control changes such as new issues, revisions,
        reclassifications and including those that have been superseded or rescinded.

2.3.    The complete NDID, including an index by publication number and the change list, is published
quarterly on CD-ROM. CFTO C-01-000-000/DA-001 provides a complete definition of the NDID coding
structure.

2.4.    To ensure the latest specifications and standards are called out in publication contracts; ILS staff
must contact DTICS to obtain standard DIDs and clauses. This is especially critical if Interactive
Electronic Technical Manuals (IETMs) are being considered.

3.      INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
3.1.   Intellectual Property rights to Contractor data must be clearly addressed in the contract. DND
must ensure that adequate rights are obtained to allow for life-cycle support of not only the
equipment/system, but of the publications themselves.

4.      REFERENCES
4.1.    The following publications contain data related to the production of Canadian Forces Technical
Orders:

        a. A-LM-505-010/JS-001 – Official Languages Requirements for Technical Documentation; and

        b. C-01-100-100/AG-006 – Writing, Format and Production of Technical Publications.

             ANNEX N - HEALTH, SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENTAL
                           CONSIDERATIONS
1.      HEALTH AND SAFETY
1.1.    SAFETY LEGISLATION, REGULATIONS & POLICY
1.1.1. Notwithstanding the dynamics of the DND General Safety Program (which is an internal DND
mechanism), it must be clearly understood that compliance with the Canada Labour Code, Part II; the
Canada Occupational Safety and Health Regulations; and, all Treasury Board Occupational Health and
Safety documents is a legal duty for all DND civilian employees and all CF members supervising civilian
employees.

1.2.    CANADA LABOUR CODE, PART II
1.2.1. The federal law that governs health and safety in the DND workplace is the Canada Labour Code
(CLC), Part II. It should be noted that in the domain of occupational health and safety, the various
provincial and territorial occupational health and safety laws are not applicable to federal public servants,
except where specifically referred to in the Canada Occupational Safety and Health Regulations.

1.3.    CANADA OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH REGULATIONS
1.3.1. The Canada Occupational Safety and Health (COSH) Regulations are appended to the Canada
Labour Code, Part II. Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) Health and Safety
Officers ensure that these regulations are complied with throughout the Public Service.

1.4.    A GUIDE TO GENERAL SAFETY IN NATIONAL DEFENCE
1.4.1. Treasury Board Occupational Health and Safety Directives & Standards. In addition to the COSH
regulations, departments also must comply with Treasury Board Occupational Health and Safety
Directives and Standards. These latter are written by the Occupational Health and Safety Sub-committee
of the National Joint Council (NJC) and are incorporated into Collective Agreements. Treasury Board
Directives and Standards are usually more stringent than the COHS Regulations. Whenever there is
doubt, DND applies the more stringent requirements.

1.5.    APPLICATION TO DND AND TO THE CANADIAN FORCES
1.5.1. The following extract is taken from the “General Safety Program, General Safety Standards” (C-
02-040-009/AG-001):

1.5.1.1. “The Canada Labour Code, Part II, its COHS Regulations and Treasury Board Directives and
Standards apply to Public Service personnel as defined in Part I of Schedule I of the Public Service Staff
Relations Act. This includes DND Public Service employees but does not include military personnel
except in relation to their management and supervisory responsibilities concerning DND Public Service
personnel or as incorporated in the General Safety Program. The Canada Labour Code and its
Regulations also apply to Non-Public Funds (NPF) employees with the exception of the health and safety
program third-party services, e.g. medical inspections and health surveys conducted by Health Canada.

1.5.2 It is DND/CF policy to have its military components comply with the CLC, Part II and the Canada
Occupational Safety and Health Regulations, as well as Treasury Board Occupational Health and Safety
Directives and Standards where the application of such requirements does not place a serious limitation
on the capability to fulfill Canadian Forces operational commitments.

2.       ENVIRONMENTAL

2.1.     DEFINITIONS
2.1.1.   The following Environmental definitions apply to the ISSP program:

         a. Due Diligence: Due diligence is the reasonable standard of care for the environment and for
            the health and safety of others that individuals shall exercise in the course of their actions
            and duties.

         b. Sustainable Development: Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of
            the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
            In a military context, this means our present defence activities occur with minimum
            environmental outcomes that place restrictions on future.

2.2.     POLICY DIRECTION
2.2.1. The DND and the CF are accountable for the impact that defence activities have on the
environment. The intent of this policy is to ensure DND employees and CF members respect the
environment, exercise environmental stewardship, and protect public and non-public properties and
assets held in trust.

2.2.2. As part of this objective, the DND and the CF adopted the following code of environmental
stewardship. DND and the CF shall:
         a. Integrate environmental concerns with other relevant concerns including those from
            operations, finance, safety, health and economic development in decision-making;
         b. Meet or exceed the letter and spirit of all federal environmental laws and, where appropriate,
            be compatible with municipal, provincial, territorial, and international standards;
         c.   Improve the level of environmental awareness throughout the DND and the CF through
              environmental awareness training, and encourage and recognize the actions of personnel
              leading to positive impacts on the environment;
         d. Recognize that the life cycle aspects of hazardous material management (initial selection,
            procurement, use, handling, storage, transportation and disposal) is an essential factor in all
            planning with particular emphasis on determining whether the material should even be
            acquired given its characteristics (see DAOD 4003-1, Hazardous Materials Management);
         e. Ensure that environmental considerations are integrated into procurement policies and
            practices;
         f.   Practice pollution prevention in day-to-day activities/operations by seeking cost-effective
              ways of reducing the consumption of raw materials, toxic substances, energy, water, and
              other resources, and of reducing the generation of waste and noise; and
         g. Acquire, manage and dispose of lands in a manner that is environmentally sound, including
            the protection of ecologically significant areas.

                                                                                    ANNEX N
                                                                                    2383-403-001
                                                                                    ISSP Use Study


2.2.3    As a minimum, due diligence requires individuals to:

         a. Know and obey federal environmental laws and regulations;

         b. Exercise caution;

         c.   Prepare for risks that a thoughtful and reasonable person would foresee; and

         d. Respond to risks and incidents as soon as practicable.

2.2.4. Notwithstanding individual responsibilities and liabilities, the chain of command shall ensure that
individuals under their direction are appropriately educated in environmental matters related to their
duties, and allocate appropriate resources to properly handle their environmental responsibilities.

2.3.     POLICY STATEMENT
2.3.1. The DND and the CF shall demonstrate responsiveness to and responsibility for respecting the
environment in all their activities by:

         a. Adhering to the code of environmental stewardship;

         b. Implementing a sustainable development strategy;

         c.   Conducting environmental assessments;

         d. Exercising due diligence;

2.      AIM
2.1       The aim of this study is determine the potential environmental impacts associated with
fielding the ISS-S.

3.      DISCUSSION
3.1     There are two main impacted areas associated with the introduction of new ISS-S.
Batteries, PDA screens, electronics, circuit cards, may contain reclaimable toxic materiel that will
have to be processed in accordance with related disposal instructions.

3.2     The environmental impact of the ISS-S comes includes the physical impact of operating
and maintaining the system based upon its design and secondly, the impact of the ISS-S on the
environment when employed in its intended role. This study will focus on the environmental
impact related to the physical operation of the system and will provide the necessary information
to the Canadian Forces Base Environmental Officers to update their training area impact studies.
Key points to note about each element of the ISSP project are the following:

        a. Radios

              i.    More radios - one per person in the BG, total of over 6000;

              ii.   Bandwidth; and

              iii. Embedded circuit diagnostic system.

        b. Computers

              i.    Modern design using latest environmental standards and legislation;

              ii.   Limited life due to obsolescence; no resale and

              iii. Possible military specific hazardous materials such as toxic compounds.

                                                                                  Appendix N1
                                                                                  2383-403-001
                                                                                  ISSP Use Study

        d. Batteries
           i. Use rechargeable batteries with improved power retention and recharging
           characteristics to reduce handling and wastage.

        e. Sensors

4.      ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS
4.1     The major categories of environmental hazards can be divided into the following four
groups:

        a. Gaseous Emissions;

        b. Toxic Liquids (Battery fuel);

        c.   Toxic Materials (batteries, computer circuits); and

        d. Noise (hearing).

4.1.1 A table is attached that details the generic toxic liquids and materials associated with
ISS-S.

4.2     GASEOUS EMISSIONS
4.2.1 The main source of gaseous emissions from UAV systems are engine emissions. Some
possible emissions include raw fuel and combustion byproducts.

4.3     TOXIC LIQUIDS

4.4     TOXIC MATERIALS
4.4.1 It is the intent of the ISSP project not to procure any parts that contain toxic material such
as Radium or Tritium. All components with toxic material will be clearly identified during the
Request for Proposal (RFP) stage and substitutes will be examined based upon part form, fit and
function. Any toxic material with no viable substitute will be clearly identified for maintenance and
disposal purposes.

4.5     NOISE POLLUTION
4.5.1 The use of active noise suppression/cancellation will be used in headset design, were
feasible, with the aim of preserving hearing.

4.6     IMPACT OF TECHNOLOGY
4.6.1 Technical innovations in the ISS-S design will have a beneficial impact upon the
environment. Innovation in the design of batteries is anticipated to dramatically reduce potential
hazards to the users and to the environment.

4.7     DESIGN FOR DISPOSAL
4.7.1   Wherever possible, ISS-S design will allow for disposal of the system components as
        normal waste.

4.8     CONCLUSION
4.8.1 The ISS-S will conform to all environmental legislation from date of manufacture. In
addition, advances in technology will result in improved power efficiency and reliability. Improved
environmental awareness and stewardship will minimize the impact of fielding ISS-S and will
have a favorable impact upon the environment.
