Wireless telecommunications have a place in the Marine Corps' future. The challenge is finding ways to match Marine Corps needs with current and future digital wireless technologies. The advanced command and coordination concepts envisioned for future expeditionary operations mesh well with technologies explored in this study. These include cellular networks, wireless data networks, mobile satellite services, and personal communication services. Careful application of these technologies will improve Marine command and coordination efforts in dynamic environments. Instead of physical connections offering information exchange from place-to-place, wireless models offer true 'person-to-person' information exchange, regardless of location. On the chaotic, unstructured battlefields of the next ten to twenty years, getting key information to specific people, as opposed to places, will be even more important than it is now. There are a number of Marine personnel, processes, and applications at the MAOTF that could benefit from commercially available wireless technologies.
