               fielding of Patriot Operator Tactics @ainer Software. (LABCOM(HDL) / BUCOM)
               Technical Assessment for a host of subjects ranging from Lithium battery
               performance, to atmospheric effects on chemical hazards and smart munitions,
               to material wear and corrosion, to revised firing tables, to night vision devices, to
               secure communications, to electronic countermeasures, to include an artificial
