CTNSP is serving as the Technical Manager of the Pre-positioned Expeditionary Assistance Kits (PEAK) Joint Capability Technology Demonstration (JCTD). The project is funded by OSD and sponsored by USSOUTHCOM.
The objective of the PEAK JCTD is to demonstrate and transition an array of capabilities for field distributed essential services including potable water, hybrid renewable power, communications and situational awareness. The PEAK kits will provide effective, low-cost and sustainable crisis services that support and build a key capacity in partner nations to promote security and stability in the theater.
The project will contribute to DOD and other US Government efforts in Building Security Capacity (BSC) through collaboration with foreign authorities and by providing foreign governments a means to quickly respond to crisis situations.
The kits will, to the extent possible, provide leave-behind services that host countries can utilize before, during and after crisis events. The operators of PEAK equipment will be US military and government personnel, as well as foreign military and government personnel with US assistance, as required. The primary recipients of PEAK services will be PEAK operators, the local populace and local first responders.
PEAK services will be provided in support of a variety of missions, including support for humanitarian assistance/disaster relief (HA/DR) activities, peacekeeping operations (PKO), remote operations, and assistance to civil law enforcement/first responder authorities.
The project will conduct a three-spiral program during FY10 and FY11, with transition into operational service early in FY12. Spiral 1 is delivering six water filtration kits with integrated power sources to USSOUTHCOM, USPACOM and USAFRICOM. Spirals 2 & 3 will refine these capabilities and add the situational awareness and communications components.
