The Army's new mobile communications network has reached Afghanistan, where soldiers are relying for the first time on smartphone-like devices to stay connected even as fixed infrastructure is dismantled to get ready for the U.S. drawdown next year.
"We can maintain a robust communications capability even while the infrastructure around us on [forward operating bases] collapses," Maj. Pickens told the Army news service. "With anything new, it takes time to fully understand the capability — both its opportunities and its deficiencies. CS13 is a significant step in the right direction to enable mission command at all echelons and across all environments."
"The various platforms of CS13 give us a digital reach like we've never had before," Maj. Pickens said.
