The need of information on tactical battlefield will increase in future battles. Not only to gain information on battlefield, but also to convey it where it is needed on time, will be very important. The next generation mobile tactical communications systems will provide a robust, reliable, secure and flexible network to the mobile users of tactical battlefield. However, it is a question under interest to predict the impacts of different battle conditions on their performance. In this study, a simulation study of messaging system of a model brigade in which mobile users employ TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) radios and TDMA technique for channel access is conducted. The focus of this study is to construct a simulation model of a messaging system of a mechanized infantry brigade on tactical battlefield and to determine if the system is capable of supporting the data exchange in performance criteria under different conditions. Also, the factors that have significant effects on the system performance are investigated. The simulation is developed in Arena 7.0 simulation program and results are analyzed by using SPSS statistical package program.
