The purpose of this task is to investigate strategic and tactical facsimile equipments and networks employed by the Federal Government including both those currently in the field and those due for deployment in the near future, determine their characteristics in terms of interoperability and compatibility, and, in those instances where incompatibilities are determined, to recommend how they might be made to interoperate. The Federal government uses a wide range of facsimile equipment and networks ranging from commercial, off- the-shelf equipments designed for the office to special ruggedized equipment designed for the battlefield. In general, those equipment fall into two categories strategic and tactical. Strategic equipments are used in office-like surroundings where the environment is usually well controlled, and operate over networks like the Public Switched Telephone Network PTN and the Defense Communications Network DCN. Two examples of strategic equipments are off-the- shelf, commercially available facsimile equipments Group 3, etc. and commercially available equipments modified to communicate through encryption devices.
