The plan developed forestalls possible stresses in the acquisition, training, and utilization of maintenance personnel. Interviews were conducted with U. S. Naval Strategic Systems Projects Office personnel, weapon system contractors, and others in related service and civilian organizations and activities. Areas were found where effort can be placed in ULMS planning that should result in ameliorating stresses found in the earlier POLARIS/POSEIDON personnel system. These areas are: hardware, technical documentation, training and career development. (Author)
