What does TACAMO mean?
- TACAMO is a U.S. military system of survivable communications links designed to be used in nuclear war to maintain communications between the decision makers and the triad of strategic nuclear weapon delivery systems. Its primary mission is to receive, verify and retransmit Emergency Action Messages to US strategic forces. It does this by maintaining the ability to communicate on virtually every radio frequency band from very low frequency up through super high frequency using a variety of modulations, encryptions and networks. This airborne communications capability largely replaced the land based extremely low frequency broadcast sites that became vulnerable to nuclear strike.
