Abstract
This thesis discusses the Army's structure, corrununications architecture, corrununications system and equipment. and corrununications-electronics role in the Joint Task Force. It provides readers an understanding of current Army systems and frames requirements for their evolution. The intended audience is other than Army. Accordingly Army structural and corrununications parochialisms are described. After establishing a baseline of Army structure and corrununications. a discussion of the Unified Command command and control architecture ensues. The Joint Task Force and separate Service corrununications responsibilities are then delineated. Discussions on joint communications interoperability and existing trends are included. Trends of note are the increase in reliance on satellite corrununications and bandwidth requirements in support of bulk data transmission. The running themes throughout this thesis are doctrine and technology. These are two of the primary drivers for future communications architectures. Thus there is a focus on the current status of joint doctrine and existing communications equipment in the Army inventory. To highlight future Army systems requirements, a scenario is described.
