Army Materiel Command (AMC), 7th Signal Command and United States Army Europe and Africa (USAREUR-AF) have approved Electronic Maintenance System (EMS) Viewer 3.1.0 to replace EMS NG Viewer 2.x on Department of Defense information networks (DODINs).

Also, Autonomous Diagnostic Manager (ADM) 4.0.4 is approved to operate on PD TMDE’s maintenance support devices (MSDs) with the updated EMS Viewer 3.x software. The latest version of the EMS software extends the ability to view enhanced schematics that was discontinued with the sunset of the Adobe Flash Player.
The new software is permitted on all CONUS and USAREUR-AF work desktops that are connected to the Army or DoD networks and non-connected devices like the MSD. Permission to use the software on remaining OCONUS networks is pending.

To have EMS installed on a networked computer, you’ll need to submit a help ticket to your local IT help desk or Network Enterprise Center (NEC). Click HERE for instructions to download the updated software for non-networked devices.
Installing the updated software on an MSD? First, make sure that Legacy IETM or later is installed, so EMS Viewer 3.1.0 and ADM 4.0.4 run correctly if you’re performing on-system diagnostics.

Click HERE to download the latest copy of Legacy IETM from the CMTool website. You’ll need your CAC to access the site. If the CMTool website gives you trouble, call the PD TMDE help desk at (877) 564-1137, or send an email to:
