  1. Why poor coalition communications loses battles

In combat, communication is an underappreciated variable. Use it well, and you can achieve objectives faster and at a lower cost of operation. If it is disrupted, expect a far greater struggle to reach your goal. Once you add the complexity of coalition operations to the story, communication becomes even more critical.

  1. Overcoming barriers to coalition communications

Your coalition defense efforts have a vulnerability. This weakness has nothing to do with your weapons. It has nothing to do with your training though inadequate training makes it worse. Poor coalition communications processes and equipment are quietly holding your effectiveness back. Unless this problem is fixed, you are going to suffer slower response times, political difficulties and more causalities.

  1. Connecting together with different encryption keys

Ensuring secure voice, data and radio communications between NATO allies in a common theatre of operation can be a difficult, even impossible task in forward operations. As encryption codes are secret, country-specific and are not shared, collaborating without risking eavesdropping from unwanted entities is a real threat.

Achieving strong encryption requires constant effort. To achieve consistent protection, work on adopting these practices as part of your standard operating procedures.

  1. What to know about quantum cryptography : 3 simple ways to explore it
