Abstract : A review of the DoD's energy information-related capabilities and requirements was performed, with special emphasis on the Defense Fuel Supply Center. Patterns of energy transactions in the DoD were examined in routine, hardship, and military operations situations. Requirements for information about energy by DoD were assessed, and these were used to establish design considerations for a coordinated Defense Energy Information System (DEIS). Elements of a program plan for implementation of an immediate problem-solving DEIS capability were presented, and recommendations for evolutionary growth to a longer term capability were included.
