Abstract:

Computer Systems Management CSM, Inc., has supported contractors doing advanced research in computer-based Special Operations Planning Aids SOPA for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA. CSM maintained a fully operational computer facility, a demonstration room, and a videolab for producing briefing tapes that show DARPA prototype demonstrations. CSMs experienced technical staff provided maintenance, applications programming, and other services that freed researchers for substantive work. By upgrading the UNIX 6.0 operating system to System V, release 2.0, CSM staff have produced a vastly improved tool for DARPA research. Operations since cutover have been almost trouble free staff time for maintenance has decreased greatly and new procedures simplify administration and maintenance.
