Background concepts are presented for a communication system that will lead to accelerated transmission of Signal Corps logistics data in CONUS. Requirements for fast yet economical data transmission service for Signal logistics activities in CONUS are increasing. The optimum capability of the Army Switched Data Network cannot be utilized as presently employed by Signal supply elements in CONUS. Increased automation of Signal supply operations in CONUS is creating a need for new and revolutionary data transmission equipment and techniques. Standardized methods, procedures,and facilities must be adopted to provide efficient data transmission service for Signal logistics activities in CONUS. Neither a philosophy nor sufficient principles and policies covering data transmission service have been established and disseminated to guide both the communicators and the logisticians in the development of an integrated data transmission system.
