The AIA pertains to all information systems regardless of proponent, component or environment and incorporates all of the disciplines of the Information Mission Area. True. 2. Signal support can be defined as the implementation of the five disciplines of the IMA at the operational through tactical levels of war. True. 3. The IMA operates in three environments. These environments are: Theater/tactical, sustaining base, and strategic. 4. Battlefield spectrum management is the systematic planning, engineering, coordinating, allotting assets for, and managing the radio frequency (RF) spectrum. True. 5. There are four operational principles of signal support. They are: Continuity, security, versatility, and simplicity. 6. During an operations briefing prior to a field exercise, a signal company commander directs his platoon leaders to ensure that all assemblages: TRC-145s, patch panel, message center, RATT rigs, operations van, and generators be separated by the maximum cable lengths. This separation optimizes survivability and is a security procedure known as __________. Dispersion. 7. The four general components of the Army Information Architecture (AIA) are baseline configuration, objective configuration, current target configuration, and a plan. True. 8. _________includes protection against interception and electronic analysis of compromising emanations. Emission security. 9. Supporting the five BFA are battlefield automated systems (BAS). Which of the following is a BAS?

All of the above. 10. A multichannel operator posts his circuit routing list inside his AN/TRC-145 van. He becomes accustomed to identifying a particular channel number with a certain subscriber. This routine reflects______. Standardization. 11. Frequency requirements are identified at lower echelons and forwarded to higher headquarters. True. 12. The five battlefield functional areas (BFA) are: Maneuver control, fire support, air defense, combat service support, and intelligence and electronic warfare. 13. At the installation level, the following staff officer is responsible for information management. Director of Information Management (DOIM). 14. Which is an example of network planning? All of the above. 15. One of the primary responsibilities of a signal officer is signal support integration which is the integration of the communications systems with the functional information systems. True. 16. __________includes all measures designed to safeguard classified and unclassified information due to capture, salvage, theft, and observation. Physical security. 17. Network management consists of the following: All of the above. 18. The IMA consists of the five disciplines of automation, communications, visual information, records management, and printing and publication.

True. 19. Visual information includes but is not limited to: All of the above. 20. A primary goal of the AIA is to: All of the above. 21. A signal platoon leader has a mission to terminate two systems, using a TRC-145. After erecting the antennas, her platoon sergeant informs her that the TRC-145 has an internal electrical problem that keeps tripping the main circuit breaker. They move the TRC-145 out of the way and pull an AN/TRC-113 and a AN/TCC65 into position to terminate the systems. This rearrangement of the signal support structure represents flexibility. True.
