Abstract:

Nine Class I AISs have been identified and their deployed concept of operations documented. Three of the systems are aviation-oriented and will operate on hardware and software provided by the Navy. Forty percent of the deployed processing will be for Class II and III AISs which have not been specifically identified nor their operational concepts documented. It was generally agreed that revision to manual operations for major Marine Corps administrative functions would be difficult if not impossible making a deployed automated processing capability a necessity. The MASC concept has evolved as the means to provide the capability the concept will be tested with the acquisition in late 1982 of an experimental FASC. The MASC must be operable in garrison, aboard ship and echeloned into the AO near the beginning of the continued operations ashore phase. The MASC concept will provide a flexible reliable means for processing deployable AISs. Author
