Abstract:

This study is an initial analysis effort to evaluate the capability of the Air Force Integrated Readiness Measurement System AFIRMS to meet the needs of MAC. While further analysis will be needed to develop and implement the MAC AFIRMS, this analysis effort will point the way for the follow on developmental analysis. The MAC requirements analysis is a small part of the development of AFIRMS, a summary of which appears in the following two sections. The purpose of this report is to discuss MAC AFIRMS information requirements, identify the potential MAC users of AFIRMS and any automated data processing ADP systems that AFIRMS will need to interface with in order to obtain the data it needs. Prior to July 1985, a Learning Prototype Phase LPP tested the basic concepts of AFIRMS on an experimental testbed system which linked a base, a major command MAJCOM headquarters, and Headquarters, United States Air Force HQ USAF. The prototype focused on the tactical fighter environment at Headquarters, United States Air Forces in Europoe HQ USAFE and Spangdahlem Air Base. This study and a concurrent study of the Strategic Air Command SAC broaden the base upon which AFIRMS rests. This base will support the definition and design phase of the AFIRMS development.
