Abstract:

The Integrated Tactical Communications System INTACS Study develops the most cost effective tactical communications system for the Army in the field for the period 1976-1991. It also develops Implementation and Support Plans for achieving this goal within the funding constraints. The analysis, leading to the selected system, was based on some 46,000 communications support requirements COMSR stated by the combat arms and other tactical users of communications. It is also consistent with stated DOD policies regarding communications security and the requirement to conform to planned tri-service tactical communications developments. In developing the Objective System, a total of 19 alternative candidates utilizing various combinations of equipment and doctrine were evaluated and compared with the current Baseline system. The Objective System is the one which most cost effectively meets the users expressed requirements as reflected in the COMSRs and best satisfies the Measures of Effectiveness MOE determined by four senior officer panels within Training and Doctrine Command TRADOC. In addition to the increase in communications efficiency of the Objective System as compared to the current system, there is a significant reduction in personnel and vehicle requirements.
