The US Marshals brought their mobile command back to LDV for another round of retrofitting. This vehicle was originally intended to travel back and forth to locations via a cargo plane, and is shorter and narrower than a typical mobile command center because of this. Due to the limited space of traveling in a cargo plane, certain concessions had to be made such as not including a rear mast in the original build of the vehicle.
Because this mode of transport is no longer used for the mobile command center, the US Marshals elected to add a new mast and mast components to the rear along with implementing other updates. Adding a rear mast meant creating a new rear wall and adding reinforcement for the mast. Dual dome IP network cameras have been installed on the mast as well to help keep surveillance over the vehicle's surroundings. A new bumper was fabricated to accommodate the new rear wall as well. The new bumper is a full body width aluminum tread plate bumper with a Diamondback open grating step surface for drainage and safety.
The US Marshals also chose to reconfigure their rear conference area by removing the flip-down seating, bench seating, and conference table. A new set of bench seating was installed to the street and curb side walls and feature removable cushions for additional storage space. In between these new sets of bench seating is an updated conference table and base. Even a new window was framed in to the room, providing natural light and air flow when needed. The newly configured conference area also features stacked 32" LED 1080P Smart HDTV monitors and a 43" UHD 4K Smart HDTV on the rear conference wall.
Laminate walls were installed throughout different rooms of the vehicle. These replace the carpeted walls that were retrofitted in the vehicle in place of the original laminate walls. A custom electronics rack was also fabricated and installed for storing different electrical and system components securely. This new electronics rack replaced the overhead electronics racks found in the front and the corner cabinet electronics rack in the rear area of the vehicle. New overhead cabinets were also installed in place of overhead electronics racks for additional storage space as well as additional aluminum base cabinets. These new overhead cabinets also feature dry erase writing surfaces. The old refrigerator was also swapped with a newer model.
Other exterior updates were also made as well. The exterior workstation was updated with a new 32" 1080P HDR Smart HDTV as well as a 12VDC dual USB power port, HDMI Matrix switcher, and HDMI input or output to the matrix. The three camera backup system replaced with a newer model while the graphics were also refreshed. The old striping was removed and new lettering was added. The old AC units were changed out to ducted AC units with wall-mounted thermostat controls. A new Power Tech 20-kW liquid-cooled diesel generator was also installed with air bag mounts in its existing compartment.
