RACO commenced publishing* SIGNAL magazine in a newspaper format in the early 1990's. The publication was redesigned in its current magazine format in 2002. The magazine is designed to act as a forum by which Defence Forces issues, particularly those affecting managerial ranks, can be projected and discussed in the public domain by members. The magazine focuses on comment from Government Ministers, Chiefs of Staff, senior civil servants as well as independent and incisive comment by former and serving officers, renowned academic and media commentators.

SIGNAL is copied to all the members of RACO, the Oireachtas, Irish MEPs, Military Áttaches attached to Ireland, public and academic libraries as well as many other organisations within Ireland and Europe. As well as producing the magazine hard copy, EU Publishing also provides an online version with past articles broken down into the various categories of interviews, politics and security.
