Abstract : The JINTACCS program established to insure the interoperability of tactical command and control systems used in joint military operations. One of the standards JINTACCS has developed is a message format to enhance the exchange of written information within the joint task force. This research investigated the susceptibility of the JINTACCS message formats used in air operations to jamming. The susceptibility was measured by comparing the percent of understandability of JINTACCS messages to all plain text non-formatted messages after each had been subjected to equal levels of electronic jamming. Continuous and burst jamming were modeled for this experiment. The experimental results revealed no statistically significant differences in the percent of understandability between the JINTACCS messages and the plain text messages. Curves of understandability were established from the experimental results for different levels of continuous jamming and different levels of burst jamming.
