The author examines Army command, control, and communications aspects of the Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS) . The developmental history of JTIDS as a secure, jam-resistant, data distribution system is discussed with emphasis placed on the acquisition process. An overview of the system, highlighting the key components, is also presented. Particular emphasis is placed on management of the network and the current joint concept of operations. The potential of JTIDS to pass other forms of surveillance information is examined. In particular, the Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS) produces a wealth of information for all Army C2 elements. JTIDS can provide the means to transmit JSTARS ground surveillance data to the Army Tactical Command and Control System (ATCCS), making this information available to users that would not ordinarily receive it. Total Battlefield Automated System integration is the key component to full exploitation of this information.
