The DARCOM MARDIS Support Project operates and maintains the DARCOM portion of the MARDIS system. Dedicated support provided by the project is needed to meet requirements of HQDA ODCSRDS, to fill information needs at HQ DARCOM and to provide technical and functional support to DARCOM and its subordinate elements in matters pertaining to MARDIS. This support is provided under contract ot DARCOM. Major efforts accomplished during the current contract period were processing data into the HQ DARCOM MARDIS data base and forwarding it to higher or lower elements in the Army RDTE organization maintaining all files, logs and records associated with the HQ DARCOM data base producing reports required by HQDA ODCSRDA, HQ DARCOM and DARCOMs subordinate elements preparation of periodic and special reports writing computer programs to fill information needs unique to HQ DARCOM establishing written operating procedures unique to the projects efforts recommending corrections or improvements to the MARDIS system and providing assistance to activities involved with the MARDIS system. Some characteristics of the MARDIS system make it prone to failure, slow to respond to changing needs, and difficult and time consuming to use. DARCOMs large and varied RDTE Mission is reflected in the size and complexity of its MARDIS data base and difficulty and cost of maintaining it. Author
