Abstract:

Communication satellites COMSATs promise to have a great impact on military communications, and the difficulty in deciding the who and the how in their use has been evident to system planners from the first considerations of this new technology. The purpose of this paper is to call attention to particular advantages which COMSATs offer to meet peculiar needs in times of national emergency, and to suggest that the specific needs of joint commands should be given more attention in the planning of military COMSAT programs.
