In October 1973, IDA undertook a task directed toward the development of a basis for evaluating the benefits that could result from managing computer communications at a teleprocessing system level as opposed to dealing separately at the computer and communication levels. Guidance was requested for the management, development, modification, and maintenance of teleprocessing systems to achieve potential improvements. Teleprocessing is defined, for the purposes of this study, to be the set of functional capabilities provided by an integration of communications and data processing into a signal cohesive system. The system applications of teleprocessing considered and identified by the study are Tye Ia Command and Control of Nuclear Forces and Type Ib Nonnuclear Crisis and Contingency Command and Control systems both of which provide informational support to the National Command Authorities and Type II General Data Processing Services systems which provide data processing and computational services to administrative, support, and other DoD organizations.
