An outline of the current NATO communucations network is given below as a model of a modern strategic system incorporating a space segment with some military features. The objective is to show what exists today and what the present thinking is for the development in the next decade or so of both the terrestrial and space segments. It is to be noted however that the information provided in this chapter may undergo change as a result of the political changes in Europe and elsewhere (Appendix 2C).
