Abstract : America's Army is focused on the 21st century. It is transforming from an industrial to an information age force. A forward-deployed Cold War army has become a power-projection force based largely in the United States. It is therefore now more critical to plan properly prior to deployment. A contingency communications planning doctrine is needed to assist our Signal Corps planners in supporting U.S. combat forces. This study addresses the current roles, missions, and organization of our contingency combat forces and the signal units which provide their communications support. It proposes a contingency communications planning doctrine and concludes with suggestions for a methodology to implement this signal doctrine.
