Abstract:

The comparison of the ANASC-6 with ANARC-122 was conducted to determine if the best features of each set should be recommended to the USACDC as a combination to meet the Small Development Requirement SDR for an airborne communication facility. The ANASC-6 was developed for use by Vietnamese Army commanders and their American advisors, whereas the ANARC-122 was developed to meet the requirements of the 11th Air Assault Division 1st Cavalry Division, Airmobile. It was found during the comparison that variation in command and control concepts of the users was the primary reason for differences in the equipment configurations. Neither current version of the airborne command post, nor a combination of the best features of each, should be type-classified other than limited production at this time. The Airborne Communication Facility proposed should be approved and development of the equipment expedited.
