Information flow to and from the force level commander and his staff and to other
functional areas and their staffs represents the signal support task of integrate force
level C2 (page 1-5. para 4a).
The four signal support principles are continuity, security, versatility, and
The four signal support principles are continuity, security, versatility, and simplicity
(page 1-8, para 6).
The subordinate elements of versatility are flexibility, interoperability, and
autonomy. (page 1-9, para 6c).
Standardization is achieved through uniformity of component parts equipment, and
procedures including data communications procedures (page 1-10. para 6d2)).
CHS will eventually standardize automation assets and improve logistical support
by simplifying operator training, maintenance, and software management (page 1-
10, para 7a).
If the power source is interrupted, the PCU can operate on battery power for up to
ten minutes (page 1-10, para 7b(2)).
The software concept of CHS uses the Ada computer language as the standard
