Abstract : The Next Generation Computer Resources (NGCR) Program is a Navy standardization effort designed to fulfill the Navy's needs for standard computer resources while at the same time allowing it to take advantage of commercial products and investments and to field new technology more quickly and effectively. The program is centered around the selection and adoption of open systems standards in several areas, including backplanes, local area networks, operating system, programming support environments, graphics, and database management systems. IDA is providing support to the NGCR Program through participation in the NGCR Operating Systems Standards Working Group (OSSWG), a group chartered to establish commercially based operating system interface standards for use in Navy mission-critical computing systems in the mid-1990s and beyond. This document is a compilation of IDA contributions to the NGCR OSSWG for the time period from January 1989 through September 1991. It includes (1) a record of IDA support of a workshop held on behalf of the NGCR OSSWG, (2) copies of IDA contributions to NGCR OSSWG documents, and (3) copies of presentations given by IDA as a representative of the NGCR OSSWG.
