EQUIPPING OUR MARINES

Marine Corps Systems Command’s Expeditionary Power Systems recently conducted new equipment training for the Expeditionary Water Distribution System with Marine Wing Support Squadron 371 in Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Arizona. EWDS is the Marine Expeditionary Force and division-level’s bulk water supply, distribution and dispensing system, replacing the Tactical Water Distribution System. The modular system is leaner and easier to assemble than the TWDS, and is capable of delivering 700,000 gallons of water a day. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Jennifer Stephens)

The Marine Corps Tactical Service Orientated Architecture will allow users to request and share mission-critical information on-demand. TSOA is a software platform that will be installed in combat operation centers, allowing for the sharing of data between COCs across the Corps. This removes the need to depend on multiple independent tactical data systems, which are not always compatible. (U.S. Marine Corps Photo by Lance Cpl. David Staten)
