Abstract : The existence of technological explosion in computer equipment and programming makes it necessary to re-examine strategic command and control for possible applications and to find effective ways to implement the applications which are identified. The report indicates the applications to which presently installed equipment can be made by adding multiprogramming features to the system and to introduce equipment and programs for time-sharing. The technical description includes equipment characteristics, system programs for control of job priority, execution, information retrieval, interrupt and recovery, functional programs for a variety of command responsibilities, a flexible file structure, a powerful query language, and specific means for achieving flexibility and growth capacity.
