SINCGARS: Canceled NSNs Cause Confusion

BLUF: The correct NSN for the SINCGARS RT-1523G HUB CCA is NSN 5998-01-663-9683, and the correct NSN for the SINCGARS RT-1523G controller CCA is NSN 5998-01-663-9777.

Dear Half-Mast,

I’m having difficulty identifying the correct NSNs for the hold up battery (HUB) circuit card assembly (CCA) for the SINCGARS RT-1523G and the SINCGARS RT-1523G controller CCA.
According to TM 11-5820-890-13&P-9 (Aug 14), the HUB CCA is NSN 5998-01-591-9008, PN A3332273-1, and the controller CCA is NSN 5998-01-591-9103, PN 0N816501-1. However, according to GCSS-Army and FEDLOG, these NSNs are discontinued without replacement.

What’s the deal?

Dear Sergeant,

The deal is that the current HUB CCA NSN for the RT-1523G SINCGARS is NSN 5998-01-663-9683, which replaces NSN 5998-01-591-9008, and the current controller CCA NSN is NSN 5998-01-663-9777, which replaces NSN 5998-01-591-9103.

CECOM had to assign new NSNs for these two CCAs because they were accidentally canceled several years ago.

Make a note of the changes since it may take some time before the TM, GCSS-Army and FEDLOG are updated.
