Tactical Communication System
  • A system configured by various types of fixed-size, self-contained assemblages, such as radio terminals and repeaters; switching, transmission, and terminal equipment; and interconnect and control facilities, that are used within or in support of tactical forces and are designed to meet the requirements of changing tactical situations. Note: The system provides securable voice and data communications among mobile users to facilitate command and control within, and in support of, tactical forces. Based on different requirements of the multichannel trunking networks, a distinction is made between: (a) tactical systems requiring extremely short facility-installation times (on the order of hours), necessitated by relocation requirements that are sometimes frequent, and (b) other tactical telecommunication systems. See also communications system, TRI-TAC equipment.
