Abstract:

This report describes a study of the capital structure supporting Federal atmospheric research. A base of inventory and utilization data for computers, aircraft, and radars was developed through a survey and the future availability of the capital services from these assets was projected. In addition to the services from Federally-operated assets, the projections include those from other sources such as universities and contractor-operated laboratories. The utilization data include both actual and potential full use of each asset, and these data are used to address the extent of possible underutilization of the assets. The projected services are compared with the reported requirements of Agency-approved atmospheric research programs, to provide an initial estimate of the adequacy of the planned capital inventory.
