Testing, Evaluating, and Enhancing NATO Tactical Communication Schemes
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we describe a simulation model called TACFONE-NATO, which simulates the constitution of a multinational NATO operational force and construction of the force's tactical communications system. This communications system is designed using Standardization Agreement (STANAG) 4214, which details methods for assigning area codes and phone numbers, and constructing the routing tables used to route calls. Our sponsor needed testing and evaluation of STANAG 4214's performance, diagnosis methodology for shortcomings, enhancements to the STAN AG for lateral routing and formation movement. In this paper, we describe the methods we used to test, evaluate, and enhance STANAG 4124.
