Abstract:

The Basic System Description BSD is a basic system specification for the Tactical Operations System TOS. TOS is an ADP system being developed to support tactical army commanders in the 1975-1980 time frame. The Technical Summary of the BSD provides a general description of the TOS. Annex K supports the Technical Summary and is restricted to the functional application of Weather Data at all echelons from battalion to field army. This support includes the collection and dissemination of weather to and from all Army weather support agencies within and outside the field army. Basic collection, report generation, weather analysis, forecasting and data exchange are included within the scope of this functional application. Annex K describes the data base, input and output formats, and transaction processing and estimates data base volumes. This application interfaces with Enemy Situation Annex C, Intelligence Collection Management Annex D, Terrain Intelligence Annex F, Nuclear Strike Effects Annex I, Tactical Air Support Annex J, and Tactical Troop Movement Annex M.
