Abstract:

In November 1981, the Assistant Vice Chief of Staff of the Air Force directed Air Force Systems Command AFSC Headquarters to provide an individual to serve as chairman of the Air Force Local Area Communication Network Panel. The Panel was established to explore and make recommendations on a Pentagon-wide local area network now known as PENTANET. Headquarters AFSC tasked the Electronic Systems Division ESD to provide the chairman, and a person was designated from the ESD Automated Management System Program Office Project IMPACT. The panel was comprised of individuals from the Air Force Communications Command, Air Force Electronic Security Command and Air Force Systems Command. The MITRE Corporation performed as technical advisor to the Panel. This report covers the Panels findings on PENTANET. Author
