Chapter 1 offers an introduction focusing on technical choices and alternative military postures, while chapter 2 discusses issues of a radio-based arms corps communication system and its implications for military effectiveness and crisis stability. In chapter 3 - in the framework of a non-provocative defence system - the implications for military effectiveness and crisis stability of a dug-in glass-fibre communications network in the posture of the Study Group on Alternative Security Policy are being discussed and finally in chapter 4 several conclusions are offered dealing with technological options, military postures and political implications and the need for better decision-making on military technology.
