Communications in wartime are critical. The United States Marine Corps communicates well using a variety of radios, each for a specialized and limited purpose. However, the USMC could potentially benefit from the exploration of combining communication capabilities in a single device by leveraging commercial off-the-shelf software and expanding the existing network infrastructure. This thesis seeks to resolve this gap in capabilities by providing a fire support application prototype that serves as a proof-of-concept for rapidly developable applications that would have an immediate positive impact, providing enhanced warfighter capabilities. If successful, this application could be further developed and fielded, and thus improve warfighting capabilities and inform future efforts in an effort to accomplish improved network management and the efficient use of existing and future communication technologies.
