Abstract:

The Military Message Experiment MME was designed to evaluate the utility of user-oriented message processing systems in a military environment and to aid in determining the features useful in such a system. The MME system was designed to give the user the capability to handle his message traffic on the system. The following conclusions were reached an Automated Message Handling System AMHS can be extremely useful in a military environment, especially during a crisis there are not significant differences between message system requirements in normal and crisis operation an AHMS must provide services to everyone involved with message handling an AMHS must have the capability to produce hardcopy an AHMS should be an integral part of the users information handling system an acceptable user interface can be developed based on the security kernel concept a user-oriented message system and the telecommunications center message system with which it is associated must be integrated and an AHMS is a more complex program than is generally thought. It must exhibit the characteristics of a well-designed data base system, a user-oriented message processor, an interactive command and control system, and a rapid message handling system.
