Task Force Ironman will be providing electrical inspection and corrections service to the Army. We are the first of 30 teams that will deploy downwind to identify and make corrections to electrical installations on FOBs and remote sites in the north and eastern half of Afghanistan. Two man teams are provided two conex type structures, one for living the other for tools and materials. We will be working with and for Army base supervisors to identify and make corrections to the electrical installations that pose hazards to the soldiers. The initial work was done by either US, British, or Afghan installers, and in most cases not by electricians. Installed systems also include entire bases wired to european standards, 220/380 50 Hertz. We are expected to make corrections and modifications to those as well.
