Abstract:

For the past several years many combatant commanders have listed strategic communications and C4 reach-back capabilities among the top four items on their Integrated Priority Lists PLs. These requirements in whole or in part remain unresolved today. Operation ENDURING FREEDOM OEF further validated the urgent need of strategic reach-back communications from the Area of Operations AOR to the Continental United States CONUS. This Strategy Research Project SRP will analyze the strategic communications infrastructure that the military planned, installed and operated to support operations in the Central Command AOR. The analysis will include an overview of reach-back communications for voice, video, and data services employed on OEF address current Army shortcomings in providing the communications for OEF to meet the needs of the combatant commander and, develop a framework for planning and providing strategic communications capabilities on future operations.
