To insure that we can communicate effectively on the modern battlefield, the United States Army has developed an extremely sophisticated communications system utilizing the most current electronics technology. The enemy's use of electronic warfare techniques is an attempt to destroy the effectiveness of this system. It is a serious threat that must be countered.
