There is no readily available Amateur Radio software that is suitable for MARS members to perform the tasks under the current conditions required of the MARS program.  The MSC software listed here is provided by HQ Army MARS for use by MARS members, and is suitable to perform the tasks required of MARS members using surplus military data modems, commercially available MIL-STD data modems, and the MIL-STD Data Modem Terminal (MS-DMT) which utilizes a sound card interface.  Additionally, it processes the specific Allied Communications Procedures (ACP), and the data and information products required of the MARS programs.   

Source code for an example terminal application and radio modem interface is included the folders below .

The current version of the MSC Suite and status of the individual applications is listed below.  For most members, the main MSC suite installer is sufficient to perform the required tasks associated with MARS membership and updates are-not necessary.  
  • Beta Software and Application Updates are no longer available at this site and is not provided directly to the general MARS membership.
