A. DESCRIPTION: The Special Operations Forces Intelligence Vehicle
Variant 1 (SOF IV (V1)) is a deployable intelligence information
support system developed for SOF. This system is mounted in transit
cases and is referred to as the dehutted system. The system does not
have its own generator or environmental control unit but will use
power supplied by the unit that is supported. This system does not
have a dedicated vehicle to transport it. This system will allow the
SOF IV(V1) to be transported when there is not enough aircraft space
to ship the complete hutted/vehicle mounted system (Z99960).
B. CAPABILITIES: SOF IV will allow SOF to access the extensive data
bases already developed to support operations against likely targets,
as well as to quickly develop and tailor new databases in response to
unexpected threats. This system provides SOF tactical intelligence
analysts with a deployable version of Special Operations Command
Research, Analysis and Threat Analysis System (SOCRATES). It will
allow intelligence personnel to receive, process and manipulate
unfinished near-real-time intelligence information, intelligence
products, as well as information resident in a variety of
national/theater intelligence databases to produce an overall product
tailored to the supported commander's essential elements of
information. It will also provide for the rapid dissemination of the
