Abstract:

During two earlier reviews of Navy command and control systems, we learned that critical tactical communications links were not coordinated, secure, or resistant to electronic jamming. As a result, we initiated a review of selected Navy tactical communications systems to determine the progress being made to overcome these deficiencies. This report discusses requirement fluctuations, the production decision, and test results associated with the Joint Tactical Information Distribution System JTIDS. A related report discusses reliability and production issues associated with the Navys Milstar terminal program.
