Engineer regiments are established for neither troop nor squadron Sigs.  We need radios that can be operated by the average user.

The ATCIS course will be changed to cover the new equipment. It won't have an immediate impact but anyone taking the new course will be current on the latest LCSS gear.

Do you know when the QS / TP for the new ATCIS-Basic / ATCIS-Intermediate / ATCIS-CP / qualifications will be coming out?

Are they going to increase the course length for ATCIS-Intermediate as the CNR(E) is mounted only, and the ATCIS-Basic deals with only dismounted comms? There's not a lot of whitespace in the schedule to cram in buttonology for a new radio system into Intermediate.

I think the biggest question is, is the CNR(E) capable of communicating with a 152/117G/MBITR/522? That was the rumour that floated around here, that to talk down to the section/platoon-level from a LAV, you'd need a legacy 5121 radio still installed.

Sorry for the late reply, The CNRE is as compatible as the CNRP essentially. No frequency hopping support.

I'm told its being worked on now, and it is modularized into different focused areas: dismounted, mounted etc. So there shouldn't be an increase unless the soldier takes all of the modules.
