Abstract : The study deals with the important characteristics of digital data transmission between interconnected civil defense (CD) installations, and with the application of electronic data processing (EDP) and computer technology to civil defense problems, the emphasis being on local levels. The data transmission standards established by the United States of America Standards Institute (USASI) are recommended. The study presents various ways in which EDP facilities can contribute to CD decision-making, together with specific examples of important items. (Author)
