The Army is fielding the Mobile Subscriber Equipment communications system that will support units at Corps and below. This is the first major change in tactical communications architecture in over 25 years. MSE is only one the communications means of the Army Command and Control System which consists of five elements, referred to as the Sigma Star. This system is examined with particular attention given to the elimination of the traditional record communications. Possible alternatives are explored. Data were gathered using a search of the literature, personal interviews with key Department of the Army personnel, U.S. Army Signal Center personnel, and individual experience acquired over 40 years of cumulative experience providing tactical communications. With the fielding of these new systems, it is clearly time for a change of mind set in how record communications needs are met. It is essential that command and control techniques advance commensurately with the great technological advances being made with MSE and the subsystems of the Sigma Star. Author
