(10) DIVARTY command net (FM-voice) is used for command, control, and intelligence traffic. It links
the DIVARTY TOC and the DIVARTY commander with commanders and CPs of organic and attached FA
battalions and the FA brigade TOC.
(11) DIVARTY administrative/logistics net (FM voice) is used for administrative and logistical traffic
within the DIVARTY. It links the DIVARTY TOC with the HHB commander, the target acquisition battery
(TAB) commander, the survey officer, and the meteorological station.
(12) TAB command intelligence (FM-digital) links the DIVARTY and the TAB. As the TAB detects,
locates, and identifies enemy elements and forces, it transmits this data to the DIVARTY.
(13) DIVARTY command/fire direction net 1 (SSB-RATT) is operated by the DIVARTY to communicate
with its close support FA battalions. The DIVARTY uses the net to send tactical and administrative orders, for
missions, and meteorological data to the battalions. Battalions use the net to request additional fires from the
(14) DIVARTY command/fire direction net 2 (SSB-RATT) is operated by the DIVARTY to communicate
with its organic general support (GS) battalions and any reinforcing FA brigades.
b. The DIVARTY wire communications system combines wire circuits and multi-channel circuits (Figure 2-
2, page 2-6). The extent of the system depends upon movement of the DIVARTY HQ and its subordinate units.
Priority circuits are those established for the conduct of fire and for fire support coordination and planning. To set
up the required circuits, DIVARTY uses the wire laying assets of the HQ battery and supporting FA units.
(1) Normally, the DIVARTY installs lines to all of its subordinate units. To establish circuits to the
direct support (DS) battalions, the wire teams of the DIVARTY communications platoon:
(a) Lay field wire circuits to the DS battalions.
(b) Connect the DS battalions through the multi-channel system established at each of the supported
(c) Use a combination of both methods.
(2) Installation of a traditional DIVARTY wire system can be affected by the size and conditions of the
battlefield. Signal plans must identify circuit priorities for the DIVARTY wire teams--ensuring continuous circuit
availability to all subordinate units may be impossible. The division multi-channel system can relieve the demand
