The BRUIN Communication System

Alister J Mitchell GM3UDL

 

The BRUIN communication system was an an essential element in the operational structure of the British Army of the Rhine between 1967 and 1985. It represented a major change from conventional combat net radio communication policy and paved the way for secure area trunk systems such as PTARMIGAN, its successor. This article explains the history and role of the BRUIN communication system and describes its facilities, its configuration and the equipment used.
