The author uses a systems approach methodology to address the requirements for a Marine Air Ground Task Force communication planner. An architecture is developed in which line of sight and beyond line of sight computer programs are used to assist the planner. Particular needs are stated for line of sight information requirements. There is special emphasis on high frequency (HF) communication planning due to the vulnerability of satellite communications in a wartime environment. In particular, an algorithm for HF communications is designed for HF frequency requests and for HF frequency to net assignments. That algorithm was coded by personnel at the Naval Ocean Systems Center (NOSC) and included as a test module in the latest release of the Advanced Prophet program. A menu driven program is designed and incorporates the features required for a Marine communication planner to enhance the command and control process for the commander. Theses. (RH)
