The personnel shelter is contained in a 20 ft ISO container. Power is supplied to the shelter from the tactical quiet
generator through a power cable stored in the shelter and connected from a 100 amp connector on the backside of the
shelter to a 100 amp connector on the generator. The power provided by the generator supplies power to the electrical
distribution panel, which is cabled to the incinerator toilet, heating and cooling unit, lighting, fire suppression system
and to the GFI receptacles in the personnel shelter.
6 KW TRAILER MOUNTED LIGHT TOWER
The lighting system consists of a self-contained, trailer mounted, 6 KW diesel generator which provides 6 KW of
power at 60 hz to four high pressure sodium, 1000 watt lamps. The power to each lamp is controlled by individual
switches on a control panel. The power is received from a 120 VAC - 2 phase alternator which is cabled through two
25 amp circuit breakers, to the switches, to a ballast box and connected by quick disconnects to the lights.
The VHF/FM handheld transceiver is utilized for communicating between personnel during loading and unloading
operations on the FC. The transceiver has a frequency range of 156.025 to 163.275 mhz, plus 10 weather channels.
The transceiver has an RF power output with the CNB350 battery of 5.0 watts (high) and 1.0 watts (low). The
operating voltage is 7.2 volts DC. Current drain in standby mode is 40 ma, in receive mode 200 ma, in the transmit
mode 1.8 A (high power) and 0.7 A (low power). The battery life (5% Tx, 5% Rcv, 90% standby) is approximately
10 hrs (high mode) and 15 hrs (low mode). The audio response is within +2/-8 of 6 dB/octave pre-emphasis
characteristic from 300 hz to 3000 hz. The AF harmonic distortion of the transmitter is 3%. The transmitter has a hum
and noise rating of 37 dB and a frequency stability (-20° to +50° C) of + 0.0005%. The receiver has a sensitivity
rating of 20 dB, quieting at 0.35 uv and 12 dB SINAD at 0.30 uv. The squelch sensitivity (threshold) is 0.20 uv.
Modulation acceptance bandwidth is + 4.5 khz.
Refer to TM 55-1925-257-14&P for the theory of operation of the incinerator toilet.
FLOATING CAUSEWAY ANCHOR MOORING SYSTEM (FCAMS)
The FCAMS is designed to hold the floating causeway during logistics over the shore (LOTS) operations in sea
conditions up to Sea State 3. The offshore mooring leg is designed to perform in soft soils and sand. The onshore
mooring leg is designed to perform in soft soils, sand and competent rock. In addition to Sea State, the capability of
the FCAMS to hold the floating causeway in position is highly dependent on the alongshore current speed and
number and type of vessels mooring to the floating causeway. It is also dependent on the water depth at the vessels
location. The complete system, which has 16 offshore mooring legs and four onshore mooring legs, is required for a
full floating causeway that is 1500 ft long.
