The article discusses the modern digital communication system for command and control (C2) and intelligence available to battlefield commanders at the lowest tactical levels. The high-capacity communication is based on the ability to pass data seamlessly to all parts of the battlespace and shares the results of Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (Istar) for a rapid and precise response. The satellite communication (satcom)-on-the-move maintains its connectivity to the satellite when travelling across country in a vehicle.
