Abstract:

The purpose of the activities described in this report, which have been carried out under the title of Computer-Assisted Planning, has been to explore the practical implications and potential uses of computer technology in comprehensive military planning. These activities have built on earlier work in Computer-Aided Command and extend the application to military planning problems of the ADEPT prototype military computer utility and time-sharing system. Four tasks are reported on 1 Computation and Communication Tradeoff Studies, which is developing computer-based models for use in the analysis and acquisition of military computer networks 2 Natural Computer Input and Output, which is directed at the research and implementation considerations associated wit English-language data management, computerized speech recognition and synthesis, and hand-printed mathematical and symbolic input and output 3 Systems Research, focusing on computer-network integration and communication techniques and on the mathematical foundations for computer-program optimization and 4 Interactive Systems, focusing on techniques and languages for interactive man-machine problem solving and on the extension of the ADEPT time-sharing system to support increasingly sophisticated interactive terminal capabilities.
