Abstract:

Advancements in communications technology have increased the flow of information throughout the battlefield, enabling commanders at all levels to make better, more informed decisions quicker than ever before. These technological advances have benefited the entire Marine Corps, from the highest level of command down to the company and platoon level. With the increase in technology, however, comes the need for individuals to install, operate, and maintain these systems. This responsibility inevitably falls to the communications community, where the volume and scope of equipment tax the average generalist. The Marine Corps needs to restructure the communications field into two military occupational specialties MOS to support advancements in technology, to improve entry level officer proficiency, and to manage expectations.
