Abstract:

It is shown that tactical military data processing need not be different from commercial data processing in terms of the computer architectural features required to support applications programs. The general lack of specific performance data from execution of operational tactical programs makes it difficult to evaluate architectural issues with current military computers or to compare future candidates however, sufficient data are available to develop general conclusions concerning computer architectures. It is recommended that the military capitalize on currently available commercial computer architectures and keep careful track of commercial research and development efforts. Author
