The US has experienced a shortage of survivable satellite communication assets during previous crises. To obtain additional satellite communications capability, the US can buy more military systems or increase the interoperability between the civilian and military systems. The second choice provides an economical method of providing an expansion capability during crisis of war, as well as, increasing the survivability of the communications system through redundancy. This study proposes the Civil Reserve Emergency Augmentation Telecommunications CREAT program be established as the focal point for interoperability improvements. This program is based on the successful concepts used in the Civil Reserve Air Fleet CRAF program which provides civilian and military interoperability for airlift requirements. Author
