Abstract:

The specific purpose of the report is to evaluate Army Telecommunications Automation Concepts and determine the feasibility of the Armys establishing a centralized facility or organization for control and management of communications computer software. Determining that centralization of automated telecommunications computer software effort is feasible resulted in several conclusions 1 Considering technical and administrative factors and the trend toward increased utilization of computers for communications applications, there is a requirement in the U.S. Army for centralized control and management. 2 The Army Telecommunications Automation Program concept is feasible. 3 A long range cost reduction will result by adoption of the U.S. Armys proposals. 4 Standardization will result. 5 Better analysis and definition of hardware and software will result. 6 Centralization will provide the U.S. Army with a pool of professional personnel.
