Shipboard fighting was a new kind of combat for Signal Corps soldiers. Army communicators sometimes plied their trade aboard Navy and civilian ships. Signal Corps personnel also served on Army communications ships.

In particular the Southwest Pacific Area SWPA formed a fleet, unofficially known as the "Catboat Flotilla" and formally as the CP fleet, that served as command and communication vessels during amphibious operations, starting with two Australian schooners Harold and Argosy Lemal acquired by the Army and converted during the first half of by Australian firms into communications ships with AWA radio sets built by Amalgamated Wireless of Australia installed.
The first task was to obtain ships more suitable than the Harold or the Argosy. The Army had built her in the United States in , a sturdy, wooden, diesel-driven vessel only feet long, but broad, of tons, intended for use in the Aleutians. Instead she had sailed to Australia as a tug. Armed with antiaircraft weapons and machine guns served by 12 enlisted men of the Army ship and gun crews , navigated by a crew of 6 Army Transport Service officers and the 12 men already mentioned, the FP was ready for service in June.
Her Signal Corps complement consisted of one officer and 12 men. The facilities of FP were needed immediately at Hollandia to supplement the heavily loaded signal nets that could hardly carry the message burden imposed by the invasion and the subsequent build-up there of a great base. Arriving on 25 June, she anchored offshore and ran cables to the message centers on land. At Hollandia, and at Biak, to which the FP moved early in September, this one ship handled an average of 7, to 11, code groups a day. Many film industry personalities served in the Signal Corps, including Tony Randall , the actor, and Jean Shepherd , radio storyteller, author and narrator of A Christmas Story.
In General George C.
Marshall ordered the creation of the Army Pictorial Service APS to produce motion pictures for the training, indoctrination, and entertainment of the American forces and their Allies. The APS took over Kaufman Astoria Studios in and produced over 2, films during the war with over 1, redubbed in other languages. Julius Rosenberg worked for the Signal Corps Labs from to He was dismissed early in when it was learned he had been a member of the Communist Party USA secret apparatus , and had passed to the Soviet Union the secret of the proximity fuze. The Signal Corps' Project Diana , in , successfully bounced radar signals off the moon, paving the way for space communications.
In researchers at Fort Monmouth grew the first synthetically produced large quartz crystals. The crystals were able to be used in the manufacture of electronic components, and made the United States largely independent of foreign imports for this critical mineral. In the first auto-assembly of printed circuits was invented. A technique for assembling electronic parts on a printed circuit board, developed by Fort Monmouth engineers, pioneered the development and fabrication of miniature circuits for both military and civilian use. Although they did not invent the transistor , Fort Monmouth scientists were among the first to recognize its importance, particularly in military applications, and did pioneer significant improvements in its composition and production.
Everything was to change as world tensions increased with the Cold War and the Berlin Airlift. To sustain the Army's worldwide commitments, it again became necessary to enlarge the capacity of every activity on-post. Truman quickly received the necessary authorization to call the National Guard and Organized Reserves to 21 months of active duty. He also signed a bill extending the Selective Service Act until 9 July The Officer Candidate School was reestablished. The fighting in Korea brought to light the need for new techniques in the conduct of modern warfare.
Myer Center, or simply, the Hexagon. Korea's terrain and road nets, along with the distance and speed with which communications were forced to travel, limited the use of wire. The development of new equipment, however, placed requirements on the Signal Corps to provide increased numbers of trained electronics personnel to work in the fire control and guided missiles firing battery systems.

These units provided instruction on electronics equipment used in the anti-aircraft artillery and guided missile firing systems. On 31 August , having received word of possible subversive activities from Fort Monmouth's commanding general, Kirke B. At first, McCarthy conducted his hearings behind closed doors, but opened them to the public on 24 November In the s the Army Pictorial Service produced a series of television programs called The Big Picture that were often aired on American television. The last episode was produced in On 18 December , with Air Force assistance, the Signal Corps launched its first communications satellite , Project SCORE , demonstrating the feasibility of worldwide communications in delayed and real-time mode by means of relatively simple active satellite relays.
The Vietnam War's requirement for high-quality telephone and message circuits led to the Signal Corps' deployment of tropospheric-scatter radio links that could provide many circuits between locations more than miles apart. During the Korean War and Vietnam War the Signal Corps operated officer candidate schools initially at Fort Monmouth in —, graduating 1, officers, and at Fort Gordon in —, which produced 2, signal officers. Modern warfare utilizes three main sorts of signal soldiers. Some are assigned to specific military bases "Base Ops" , and they are charged with installation, operation and maintenance of the base communications infrastructure along with hired civilian contracted companies.
Others are members of non-signal Army units, providing communications capability for those with other jobs to accomplish e. The third major sort of signaleer is one assigned to a signal unit. That is to say, a unit whose only mission is to provide communications links between the Army units in their area of operations and other signal nodes in further areas served by other signal units.
Sending radio signals across the vast Pacific Ocean had always been unreliable. In August , radio communications across the sea were given a huge boost in quality: The first satellite terminal ever installed in a combat zone was installed in Ba Queo, near Saigon , led by Warrant Officer Jack Inman. From north to south, communicating across the varied landscapes of Vietnam presented a variety of challenges, from mountains to jungle. The answer came by utilizing the technology of "troposcatter".
A radio signal beamed up into the atmosphere is "bounced" back down to Earth with astonishingly good results, bypassing debilitating terrain. The Army had little experience with this technology, so they contracted the development of the systems to Page Engineering. The escalation of the number of troops in the Vietnam War caused an increasing need for more communications infrastructure. In the spring of the assorted Signal units were reassigned to the newly formed 1st Signal Brigade. A major program in was the initial production and deployment phase of the mobile-subscriber equipment system MSE.
The MSE system called for setting up the equivalent of a mobile telephone network on a battlefield, allowing a commander or Tactical Operations Center TOC to connect mobile telephones and fax machines in vehicles with each other, sending and receiving secure information.

Talking through signal nodes, MSE established a seamless connection from the battlefield even back to commercial telephone lines. Rather than sending a signal along one signal frequency, the SINCGARS radios sent its signals across many frequencies, "hopping" from one frequency to another at high speed. This allowed many nets to share an already-crowded frequency spectrum. It will eventually provide "On-The-Move" down to the company level for maneuver, fires and aviation brigades, and will fully support the Future Combat Systems FCS program; and also provide protected satellite communications "On-The-Move" capability against jamming, detection and intercept and will be aligned with the Telecommunications Satellite TSAT program.
Signal Corps military occupational specialties are:. Myer to be Signal Officer, with the rank of Major, 17 June , to fill an original vacancy. Orange with white piping. Orange was selected in as the Signal Corps branch color. In , the white piping was added to conform to the custom that prevailed of having piping of a different color for all branches except the line branches.
