Abstract:

Military budgets and numbers of people in uniform will continue to drop in the coming years as changing world situations lower demands on the U.S. military. Public Affairs offices, the public communicationpublic relations arm of the military, however will continue to perform the same mission with fewer people. Modern technology increased the speed of human communication and made gathering and disseminating information easier. By using selected technologies, the Air Force public affairs practitioner can increase productivity while working with reduced staff. Computer communication, data bases, desktop publishing, cable television and electronic darkrooms make up some of the rapidly developing means of personal communication available. Throughout the 1990s these and other technologies can open communication doors for the Air Force.
