The U.S. Army announced today that Tobyhanna Army Depot has been named the depot source of repair (DSOR) for the Persistent Surveillance Systems – Tethered (PSS-T), a key piece of surveillance equipment used across the Department of Defense (DoD). According to the article, the workload will be executed through a public-private partnership (P3) with TCOM, LP of Maryland, and Product Director (PD) Aerostat, headquartered at Aberdeen Proving Ground.
According to the U.S. Army article, “The PSS-T enables Soldiers to gather constant intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) data by using an aerostat – an enormous balloon that uses buoyant gas to hover at low altitudes. The balloon is tethered to a large trailer and is accompanied by a sheltered control room, which allows Soldiers to review and disseminate footage from the PSS-T’s electro-optical/infrared camera systems. PSS-T payloads are used to detect, identify, and track developing situations, improving situational awareness for Soldiers. Because the PSS-T is more efficient to operate than other ISR systems, it is in high demand by multiple DoD branches, including US Customs and Border Protection.”
The article further explains that the Tobyhanna Army Depot is a recognized leader in providing world-class logistics support for C5ISR systems across the Department of Defense. Tobyhanna’s Corporate Philosophy, a dedicated workforce, and electronics expertise ensure the depot is the Joint C5ISR provider of choice for all branches of the Armed Forces and industry partners. Tobyhanna’s unparalleled capabilities include full-spectrum logistics support for sustainment, overhaul and repair, fabrication and manufacturing, engineering design and development, systems integration, post-production software support, technology insertion, modification, foreign military sales, and global field support to our joint warfighters.
About 4,000 personnel are employed at Tobyhanna, which is located in the Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania. Tobyhanna Army Depot is part of the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command. Headquartered at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, the command’s mission is to empower the Soldier with winning C5ISR capabilities.

Technical Documentation to Improve Operations
While TCOM’s aerostat surveillance systems are less costly and less complex than many of the alternatives (such as manned aircraft, satellites, and large UAV’s), TCOM’s systems are, none the less, extremely sophisticated. As such, accurate and understandable documentation is required to support the operation and maintenance of our systems wherever they are deployed. To address this need TCOM relies on our Technical Documentation Group which is made up of individuals with the diverse technical backgrounds needed to cover all aspects of the system. Most possess advanced degrees and many have extensive military experience, particularly in aircraft flight and maintenance. The Technical Documentation Group produces the necessary supporting documentation for every Aerostat Surveillance System including:
- Theory and Operations Manuals
- Preventive and Corrective Maintenance Manuals
- Supporting drawings and parts lists
Formatted for Multiple Devices
The manuals can be written either to our own best commercial practices standards, or to a variety of MIL STDs as required by the customer. While most customers still desire paper manuals for aerostat documentation, electronic versions of our manuals are now available online if requested. TCOM has worked with the U. S. Army in developing Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETMs) in accordance with the AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe (ASD) standard, S1000D. TCOM is currently developing searchable interactive documentation that will be portable across a variety of platforms such as PC’s, laptops, and mobile devices.
Documentation to Facilitate Training
TCOM trained customer Operations & Maintenance personnel using TCOM generated aerostat documentation has proven successful in increasing on-station time and further lowering life cycle costs of Persistent Airborne Surveillance in some of the most troubled regions of the world.
- Accurate and Comprehensive Information prepared by an experienced staff
- Choice of Electronic or Paper Format
- Increases protection while lowering costs
- Optimized for mobile devices
