Expeditionary Logistics

The Field Logistics Support Directorate (FLSD) is organized to provide a single face and point of contact responsible for all workload executed at forward locations geographically aligned to best support the planning and workload execution of the warfighter. FLSD is flexible, adaptable, and responsive to support the warfighter's requirements wherever they are and whenever they are needed. The directorate structure accommodates reach out and reach back capabilities for new and surge requirements on multiple Joint Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems.

Tobyhanna Army Depot personnel are providing comprehensive engineering, technical, and maintenance assistance to our customers worldwide. Multi-disciplined teams, drawing on the complete technical expertise and industrial capabilities of Tobyhanna Army Depot, are supporting many of DoD's mission essential command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems both in peace and during times of conflict. Depot personnel support numerous and varied systems including fully mature developmental items, such as SATCOM systems, as well as non-developmental items and commercial off-the-shelf systems such as Logistics Information System (LIS) (STAMIS--Standard Army Management Information Systems is now being referred to as Logistics Information System (LIS) according to the latest edition of AR 750-1.).

TYAD has extensive experience with crisis response to include such contingencies as operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom, Just Cause, Desert Shield/Storm, and other-than-war operations in Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, and civilian relief missions. In addition, TYAD projects logistics power for communications-electronics systems that are deployed everyday to support the requirements of field units. TYAD has a successful history of supporting the warfighter globally with permanent forward deployed sites and thousands of man-days of technical assistance annually.

Tobyhanna Forward Operating Locations (TFOLs)
TFOLs are maintenance and logistics support activities that provide a forward depot level presence and offer the field commander the cost, quality, and technical advantages of the depot in the field. TFOLs are located at operational bases worldwide and provide several advantages:
- In-theater maintenance support of COTS/NDI equipment
- Elimination of numerous maintenance support contracts
- Reduced need for spares in the pipeline
- Reduced transportation costs and turnaround times
- Organic depot level expertise in the field
- Deployable support during times of conflict
TFOLs are located in Germany; Italy; Korea; Japan; Kuwait; Iraq; Afghanistan;  Fort Bragg, NC; Fort Lee, VA; Fort Drum, NY; Fort Stewart, GA; Fort Campbell, KY; Fort Indiantown Gap, PA.; Camp Lejeune, NC; Fort Knox, KY; Fort Benning, GA; Huntsville, AL; Lakehurst, NJ; Fort Hood, TX; Fort Bliss, TX; Fort Carson, CO; Schriever, Air Force Base, CO; Fort Riley, KS; Fort Polk, LA; Camp Mabry, TX; Rosemount, MN; Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA; Schofield Barracks, HI;  Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, AK; Fort Irwin, CA; Fort Wainwright, AK; Camp Pendleton, CA

In addition, TYAD projects logistics power for C4ISR systems that are deployed everyday to support the requirements of field units.
Support includes:

  1. System repair  
  2. ASL support                    
  3. Platform repairs
  4. ECU/APU repairs     
  5. Software assistance 
  6. OEM interface non NSN parts

Command Post Systems & Integration (CPS&I)
TYAD provides total CPS&I sustainment support to include Reset, fielding, training, integrated logistics, engineering, fabrication, and depot warehousing.  FSRs provide on-site assistance and depot level maintenance and sustainment support for all CPS&I fielded platforms and equipment in CONUS, OCONUS and deployed areas for the active Army and Army National Guard. 
Sustainment support is provided by 100 plus FSRs who are aligned with the Army Field Support Brigade (AFSB) regional structure.   The FSR provides on-site assistance for depot level maintenance of Command Post Systems & Integration (formally Tactical Operations Center (TOCs)) fielded equipment.  The FSR establishes and maintains close working relationships with associated unit personnel as well as local CECOM logistics assistance representatives (LARs), and digital systems engineers (DSEs).  The use of depot forward support takes advantage of similarities, communications infrastructures, and associated hardware with other systems and provides substantial benefits by decreasing the overall logistics footprint in support of the digital force.  The FSR is also certified to provide over-the-shoulder training to unit personnel in the operation and preventive maintenance of the TOC system.
RESET support is provided on equipment for returning units from both operations New Dawn and Enduring Freedom (OEF).  Tobyhanna has forward deployed FSRs who assist units with the return of CPS&I deployed equipment. Equipment is directed to one of three Tobyhanna regional Reset locations where core teams are set up:  Fort Bragg, N.C., Fort Hood, TX, and Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA.  Prior to the end of the Reset process, Reset refresher training is coordinated between the unit, Tobyhanna Reset personnel, and Tobyhanna's Readiness Training Division (RTD).  

Computer/Automation Equipment Support
TYAD Forward Repair Activities/Sites (FRAs) provide forward depot level maintenance and logistics support and offer the field commander the cost, quality, and technical advantages of the depot in the field.  In support of our warfighter requirements, FRAs are located at operational bases worldwide.  Support includes:

  1. STAMIS repair, sustainment and direct exchange service
  2. Tactical Battle Command Computer Equipment repair
  3. Command Post of the Future computer repair
  4. Medical Communications for Combat Casualty Care (MC4) equipment repair
  5. Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) warranty provider for Dell, Hewlett-Packard (HP), Lexmark, Lenovo, Panasonic, NCS (Level1)
  6. Tier III equipment and commercial off-the-shelf computer (COTS) systems

Equipment Fielding
TYAD provides support during all phases of planning, coordination, and fielding of new equipment to Army units.  They can manage equipment, ensure proper training and use Army forms to issue and track equipment in the Property Book Unit Supply Enhanced (PBUSE), Logistics Information Warehouse (LIW), and other Army and commercial systems.  TYAD can ship, receive, and track the movement of the equipment from home station to the unit and ensure that all of the equipment is operational prior to issue or training, working with local Director of Logistics (DOL) if equipment is damaged during shipment or training. 

TYAD personnel support the 401st/402nd Army Field Support Brigade (AFSB) by providing Redistribution Property Assistance to help facilitate the drawdown in Iraq and Afghanistan.  TYAD personnel locate and identify C4ISR equipment from various locations, provide unit guidance and assistance in support of C4ISR activities, and identify, inventory, pack, wrap and ship each piece of equipment.

Readiness Training Division (RTD)
The Readiness Training Division is comprised of experienced and dedicated cross-functional training instructors. Each team member is Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) certified and provides extensive formal classroom as well as hands-on training of power units, environmental control systems, electronic communication systems, networking and information technology.  The RTD team provides this technical training to field service representatives at Tobyhanna Army Depot during an 18 week program of instruction or by traveling to CONUS and OCONUS destinations to include Southwest Asia, Korea and Germany.  Teams also train active Army units in theatre or at TFOLs.  Programs taught include Command Post Platform (CPP), Command Center System (CCS), Battlefield Anti-Intrusion System (BAIS), Language Labs for Foreign Military, Tactical Fiber Optic Cable Assembly (TFOCA II), shelter maintenance, basic and through-hole soldering, sustainment training, Reset/refresher training and on-demand specialized training.  The diverse backgrounds of the RTD instructors allow for an ever-increasing deliverable “training package”.
