Some of the key problems in providing network interfaces to tactical communications (NITC) relate to interoperability among tactical communications networks; efficient use of the limited bandwidth and limited on-the-move abilities of today's tactical communications systems; and the need to extend the 'reach' of the tactical communications by augmenting IP capabilities. The problems get even more difficult and complex when interconnection of disparate users and heterogeneous networks for multiple services is needed to form a combined, seamless communications infrastructure. This paper examines these problems and issues, identifies an objective architecture for the NITC, and develops a time-phased approach to accomplish the objective.
