Abstract:

A recent needs study determined that most of the terminal requirements for military CAI applications can be satisfied with mainstream commercial terminals. Additional development, however, is likely to be required to satisfy two of the capabilities limited graphics and prerecorded visuals. The expected architecture of commercial terminals will make it easy to modify and customize them to meet all the identified CAI needs. The military community is also expected to use computer networks to satisfy an appreciable portion of its requirements. Commercial terminals and available computer networks provide the basis for an effective and economical user interface to military CAI systems.
