Abstract:

This Note documents the results of a preliminary analysis of space communications requirements that employs scenarios for military operations in three widely separated geographical areas in which U.S. contingency operations could occur. The objectives of this research are to 1 Assess communications requirements that were not met by military resources for Desert ShieldDesert Storm and other recent operations and might not be met without additional military resources in potential future contingencies, including a hypothetical contingency in the southern hemisphere and, 2 Determine how military satellites could be used to overcome shortfalls between requirements and existing or planned military communication systems.
