Abstract
THE ARMY'S CURRENT TACTICAL COMMUNICATIONS ARCHITECTURE CONSISTS OF THREE VERY CAPABLE BUT INDEPENDENT SYSTEMS: THE ARMY DIGITAL DATA SYSTEM (ADDS), THE MOBILE SUBSCRIBER EQUIPMENT (MSE), AND THE COMBAT NET RADIO FUNCTIONAL SYSTEM (CNR). FULLY AUTOMATED INTERFACES BETWEEN THESE SYSTEMS DO NOT EXIST. IN ADDITION, EACH SYSTEM HAS BEEN TAILORED FOR ONLY ONE TYPE OF COMMUNICATION SERVICE AND IN THE CASE OF ADDS ONLY HANDLE ONE SERVICE (E.G., DATA).

THE COMMERCIAL COMMUNICATION WORLD IS MOVING TO PROVIDE INTEGRATED SERVICES. THIS PROPOSED EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP THE RATIONAL AND ARCHITECTURE FOR A TACTICAL INTEGRATED SERVICES DIGITAL COMMUNICATION SYSTEM EMPLOYING MSE, CNR, EPLRS.
