Abstract:

In the fall of 1976, the National Security Industrial Association undertook a study of anti-jam communications for the Department of Defense DDR and E and DTACCS. Prior NSIA studies performed for the DoD on the problems associated with communications and data transmission in command and control, revealed inconsistent consideration of the overall anti-jam discipline including hardware, doctrine, and training against enemy electronic countermeasures. These deficiencies, combined with observations related to ambiguities in anti-jam performance specifications, have produced serious concerns about the availability of an adequate methodology for new program decisions. This study was undertaken in response to these concerns. A study plan was worked out jointly by NSIA, DTACCS and DDR and E which called for 1 an assessment of current anti-jam tactical communications capability with a view towards exposing weak links 2 the evaluation of current anti-jam technology trends with projections of performance and costs to the 1982-1985 period, and 3 the recommendation of new initiatives directed at making AJ communications systems more cost-effective.
