AN/ARC-210 UHF radios. In every instance, these sets require individualized training and calibration to ensure that they all operate when needed. Further, these independent systems often have difficulty cross-communicating, as a result of incorrect time hacks, outdated fills, or improper frequency ID's, the list goes on. The way the Marine Corps has dealt with this is to establish a Tactical Network such as the Fire Support Coordination Center (FSCC) and Direct Air Support Center (DASC) that act as liaison between these elements. This slows down the passing of information and even loses words, phrases, and (often times) the meaning of what is being communicated. Emerging on the scene is the Global Information Grid (GIG) that brings with it a veritable cornucopia of information and a network of resources that would be unreachable by UHF/VHF/HF communications. To access this, the Department of Defense in general, and the Marine Corps in specific needs to adopt communications devices that speak the same language. IP-based radios are the only viable option.
