Abstract:

This report is one in a series of three reports that examine the nature and impact of U.S. computer technology relative to that of the Soviet Union, and the military advantages that the United States may achieve by virtue of superior computer technology. This report surveys computer applications in strategic, tactical, and supporting systems, and for each such application describes the capabilities of the system, the roles of computer hardware and software, and the prospects for future computer applications to improve the systems performance. The question is then posed whether the Soviet computer industry could support a similar application.
