The Test Equipment Modernization (TEMOD) program replaces obsolete General Purpose Electronic Test Equipment with new state-of-the-art equipment. This new equipment reduces the proliferation of test equipment, modernizes the Army’s current existing inventory and strongly supports other weapon systems. Acquisitions are commercial items that have significant impact on readiness, power projection, safety and training operations of the Army, Army Reserve and National Guard. The TEMOD program has procured 38 products that replace more than 334 models.
BENEFIT TO THE WARFIGHTER
TEMOD improves the readiness of Army weapon systems; minimizes test, measurement and diagnostic equipment proliferation and obsolescence; and reduces operations and support costs.
