Abstract : Amphibious operations are among the most complex and difficult military operations. To be successful, ongoing dialogue must exist between the Marine Air-Ground Task Force (MAGTF) Command Element (CE) and the Navy's Command Element represented by the Commander, Amphibious Task Force (ATF) throughout the entire assault operation. In addition, the Navy is adopting a new communications architecture, namely Copernicus. This report addresses the following specific tasks: (1) The Marine Air-Ground Task Force (MAGTF) Command Element (CE) to function as a Tactical Command Center (TCC) within the Navy's Copernicus architecture. (2) A shipboard inter-face between the Marine Tactical Command and Control System (MTACCS) and the Navy Tactical Command System-Afloat (NTCS-A) C3I system. (3) Use of 'Communications Support System (CSS)-like' architecture and technology to support the communications resource-allocation requirements of a MAGTF CE ashore.
