Description of Work Performed: The Combat Information Transport System (CITS) was the program responsible for upgrade and modernization of voice and data network infrastructure systems across US Air Force and Air National Guard base and installations around the world. The CITS Program included lifecycle management functions addressing acquisition, sustainment, implementation and maintenance for these critical infrastructure elements.
CITS was composed of three subsystems: Transport, Network Defense and Network Management. Transport was everything relating to physical pathways that information passes through. Network Defense was the security, and Network Management was the control. All of these assets combined to provide connectivity throughout the Air Force to link in-garrison command, control and combat support systems to the Defense Information System Network. Network connectivity, information assurance, asset management, interoperability, and standard interfaces to joint service networks were the core goals of the CITS program.
A typical CITS infrastructure project consisted of a site survey, design, design approval in a formal design review process, material logistics, installation, test and acceptance, network cutover, site clean-up, and restoration. Throughout the entire length of a CITS ITS project, weekly progress reviews were conducted. In addition, weekly and monthly Project Status reports were required to be submitted to appropriate government officials.
Trans-Tel was involved in supporting the CITS program from 2003 and throughout its duration as a subcontractor.
Description of Work Performed: Construction effort to expand the outside plant infrastructure to provide single mode fiber optic cable connectivity for additional users at core locations on the Fort Hood Garrison campus.
Trans-Tel installation attributes included locating utilities; installed 72 maintenance holes of various dimensions; 36,300 linear feet of trenched PVC conduit, 29,400 linear feet of which was concrete encased; 14,500 linear feet of directional bored HDPE conduit; 121,300 feet of 3-cell geotextile fabric mesh inner duct; trenched 40,650 feet of armored fiber optic and copper cable; plowed in 74,100 feet of direct buried fiber optic cable; 184,882 feet of fiber optic and copper cable in new and existing conduit; rodded and proofed 56,650 feet of existing conduit; wreck out 3,000 feet of existing fiber and copper cable; labeling maintenance holes and cables; building entrances; 38 fiber optic and copper patch panels; complete site restoration.
This work effort concluded within the contractual period of performance date(s) with no service disruptions. Trans-Tel tested and certified all installed cable, and delivered confined space entry logs, QA Inspection Checklists, updated “as built” red-lines (with GPS coordinates) and MH butterfly drawings to the owner and prime contractor (NextiraOne LLC, dba Black Box Network Services) upon completion.
Description of Work Performed: Trans-Tel work involved buildout and ground 1 MDF and 5 IDF locations; installation of 11 new 2-post racks; installation, termination and testing of 254,000 feet of coaxial, Cat6 and fiber optic drops on patch panels and 7 FODPs; installed 7,300 feet of new fiber/audio visual/copper cable backbone cables; installed 44 single, 553 dual and 63 quad connector drops at user end locations in modular furniture and fixed workstations.
This work effort concluded within the contractual period of performance date with no disruptions in service. Trans-Tel tested and certified all installed fiber and copper cable, and delivered “as built” drawings to the owner and prime contractor (Prime Electric, G.C.) upon completion.
Description of Work Performed: EFI&T effort to provide redundant connectivity to the Kirtland Underground Munitions Maintenance and Storage Complex (KUMMSC) located at Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque, NM, using new inside and outside plant infrastructure. Trans-Tel work included installation of three elevated towers and two underground towers to include environmental, power, ground, fire suppression, lightning protection and physical security systems, as well as redundant copper and fiber communications connectivity.
To accomplish this, we installed 6,700 feet of new PVC and galvanized steel conduit, nine maintenance holes, 7,000 feet of copper and fiber optic cable from the towers to the underground CEL throughout a blast proof environment. GIS geospatial data point collection was also completed.
This work effort concluded weeks ahead of the contractual period of performance date with no disruptions in service. Trans-Tel tested and certified all installed cable and delivered a CDRL “as built” drawing package to the owner (Sandia National Laboratory) upon completion.
