21st Century U.S. Military Manuals: Tactical Satellite Communications - FM 24-11 (Value-Added Professional Format Series)

Length: 192 pages2 hours


Part of our value-added professional format series, the Tactical Satellite Communications Field Manual (FM 24-11) deals with military satellite communications. This FM has been converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction.

In the preface, it states: "This manual is a basic reference document for using the tactical satellite (TACSAT) communications system. The purpose of the manual is to translate doctrine and detailed technical data into practical guidance for planning and operating a TACSAT communications system. It provides guidance for deploying, controlling, and managing TACSAT communications systems and terminals. This manual includes a description of the TACSAT communications equipment. It also provides instructions for its doctrinal use. This doctrine provides a firm foundation of guidance to TACSAT communications users. The intended users of this manual are operators/supervisors, planners, and to some extent, maintainers. Operators/supervisors will use the manual for basic instruction and as a guide on how to use the equipment. Planners will use it for system and network planning. Maintainers can use it as an adjunct to the technical manual and as a quick reference when needed."

This manual is produced by Headquarters, US Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC).

As a bonus, this reproduction includes FM-1, The Army Field Manual, a capstone manual containing the vision for the Army - sold separately for $5.99. FM 1 establishes the fundamental principles for employing Landpower. The most important of these are the Army's operational concept and the fundamentals that support it. They form the foundation for all Army doctrine. All Soldiers should understand and internalize them. FM 1 describes the American profession of arms, the Army's place in it, and what it means to be a professional Soldier.
