Abstract : The Report of Findings of IDA Study S-382 examines the feasibility of collocation and/or consolidation of the Navy and Air Force operational environmental services computer centers--both as they are presently constituted and as expanded to meet 1975 needs. This document summarizes the findings of this study which are reported in detail in the Appendices. Subjects reviewed are: The current operations of the Fleet Numerical Weather Central and the Air Force Global Weather Central, the DoD needs for environmental services, potential data sources which the Services might utilize to meet military needs in 1975, data processing equipment and personnel requirements based on military needs for this same period, costs of the various options open to DoD, and a review of the pros and cons of these options.
