During World War Two, the Allies had a decisive information advantage over the Axis. They had broken the German and Japanese encryption! That’s an advantage that you cannot afford to cede to your enemies. That kind of one-sided intelligence advantage is unlikely to occur again due to advances in encryption and code-breaking.
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.
Tactical communication failures and delays are the most essential silent killer on your next mission. It’s a controversial statement, I know.

All of these threats quickly become much more dangerous if your organization has tactical communication problems. In many cases, LTE wireless communication makes a critical difference in saving lives in a tactical situation.

There’s just one problem: protecting satellites from natural and human-made disruption and attack is severe. What are your other options to reinforce military communications?
