Abstract : Research conducted on the impacts of C3 force integration is reported. An introduction is provided into the numerous challenges facing the Army division level Signal officer in the 1990s. The challenges emerge from the consecutive modernization of organizational, doctrinal, and materiel force integration programs amid declining personnel resources and a high technology battlefield environment. Analysis is focused on the impacts to the divisional MSE Signal battalion S3 staff of fielding three new C3 systems: The Maneuver Control System (MCS), the Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS) , and the Integrated System Control (ISYSCON). Impacts are categorized in terms of C3 functional areas: personnel, equipment, procedures, training, and leadership. Suggested improvements to training, network management procedures, and materiel acquisition practices are provided for materiel developers, combat developers, and tactical Signal Corps leadership. Recommended areas for further studies are included. Army Tactical Command and Control System, C3, C2, JTIDS, MCS, ISYSCON, Force Modernization.
