Abstract:

This report examines developments and trends in the fields of computerization and automation in support of a premise that computers and automation can make major contributions to the effectiveness of future US Army forces. The trends and developments are correlated with anticipated needs of the Army at the turn of the century. Decisions to exploit increasingly current and anticipated technological advances are required now if we are to maintain a qualitative advantage over potential adversaries as well as compensate for a quantitative disadvantage in men and materiel. Requirements with respect to manning, equipping, training, fighting, and managing the force are considered in determining applications and defining implications for the Army in the year 2000.
