When it comes to communication, language has a very important role. The main purpose of any form of two way radio communication is to share or convey a message, and so it has to be in a form which can be easily understood or assimilated by the receiver. There are many forms of communication systems and many types of communication. One most important type of communication is the tactical communication. What is tactical communication and how is it used and for what purpose?

Tactical Communications

Important decisions or orders or government proposals need a secured communication system to be transmitted. Tactical communications enable such secured transmission through electronic equipment. In olden times personal messengers will carry these private messages from one country to another. Even doves and signals through drums, flags or trumpets were used to convey secret messages during wartime or state of emergency. Later after the invention of telegraph and telephones the older system of communication became extinct.

The military, naval and air forces need a strong and well secured two way radio communication network to protect the highly confidential messages transferred. The government secret decision and top secret messages must also be safe guarded. Ordinary communication systems can work effectively for domestic or commercial purpose. But when we need a much advanced communication system which is focused on top security then a special system must be formulated according to the use and need.
