Abstract : The report presents implications of industrial and naval automation for the Navy's human element. Consideration is given to the imminent possibility that the Navy will be required to provide a place for many personnel who cannot find employment in civilian industry, and discussion is also provided on the later problem of the automated society as a source of naval manpower. The qualitative personnel requirements of a 'fully' automated Navy are discussed and the manpower requirements of such a Navy are estimated in tabular form. A projected schedule for the advent of naval automation is omitted as the variables involved are too difficult to predict with any acceptable degree of validity. (Author)
