Forty military and civilian personnel of the Navy and other agencies were interviewed to determine the effects of Automated Data Processing ADP on the Navy command structure. The most important impact was on the attitudes of military personnel concerning the function of ADP in their operational role and the influence of ADP in their Navy careers. It was recommended that the Navy assess present ADP training programs to determine ways that they can be supplemented to meet the needs of command-control environments. The second impact concerns the influence of ADP on information handling procedures existing in the Navy. In anticipation of further inclusion of ADP in the Navy command structure and implementation of Navy-wide integrated command management systems, it was recommended that an activity devoted exclusively to problems of ADP technology and Navy command be given attention and emphasis.
