Abstract:

Fleet Marine Force FMF units are utilizing organic tactical communications and Automatic Data Processing ADP systems to successfully establish data communications networks. These networks are meeting current FMF command, control, communications, and computers C4 interface requirements however, they are usually locally configured and unique to individual units. The lack of a comprehensive single source operational policy is the weak point in the United States Marine Corps USMC C4 system. Currently, the only C4 operational policy disseminated to the FMF is Fleet Marine Force Reference Publication FMFRP 3-32, TRI-MEF Standard Operating Procedures SOP for Communications and Computer Systems, Nov 89. FMFRP 3-32s purpose was to establish an SOP for Marine Expeditionary Force MEF level data communications. Our research determined that FMFRP 3-32 does not address all of the C4 interface requirements of the FMF.
