a. Single-channel radio usually satisfies initial needs for basic communications. The DIVARTY operates in
the single-channel nets shown in Figure 2-1, page 2-4.
(1) Division command operations net (FM-voice) is used for command and operational traffic between
the tactical CP and the commanders of attached units and the S3/G3 sections at the tactical operations centers
(TOC) of attached units.
(2) Division intelligence net (FM-voice) is used for intelligence traffic between the division tactical CP
and the S2/G2 sections at the TOCs of attached and intelligence gathering units.
(3) FA brigade operations/fire direction net (FM-digital) is used to pass fire support coordination and fire
planning and to provide a communications channel to help in the counterfire effort. It links the TACFIRE at the
FA brigade with the DIVARTY.
(4) Division tactical operations center net (SSB-voice) roughly parallels the division
command/operations (FM voice) and division intelligence (FM voice) nets, but it provides longer range.
(5) Division operations net (AM-RATT) provides the division TOC secure, hard-copy communications
of operational value with its maneuver brigades, DIVARTY, and supporting units.
(6) Division intelligence net (SSB-RATT) provides the division secure, long-range hardcopy intelligence
communications with the various elements within the division. It parallels the division intelligence net (FM
(7) Division administrative/logistics net (SSB-RATT) provides the DIVARTY and other division
elements with secure, hard-copy communications to the division support command (DISCOM) for administrative
and logistics requests, reports, and updates.
(8) Corps artillery fire direction net (SSB-RATT) provides RATT communications between the corps
artillery TOC and the DIVARTY for requesting additional fire support and for coordinating FA support, both
nuclear and non-nuclear.
(9) DIVARTY operations net (FM-digital). This is a TACFIRE net. DIVARTY has three of these nets-
OPS 1, OPS 2, and OPS 3. These nets are used to pass fire support coordination and fire planning information
and to provide a communications channel help in the counterfire effort. They link the TACFIRE at the
DIVARTY with the FA battalion fire direction centers, division and brigade fire support elements, and air
observers when available.
