Abstract : Operations Research (OR) in the Italian Navy is discussed. A brief historical sketch provides an introduction to the present organization, its mission, methods, and programs. Interaction with the newly formed Defense Department OR activity is described. Cooperation with the civilian OR community, including the Inst. of Statisitics (ISTAT) and the Univ. of Rome, has given the Italian Naval OR group under Admiral B. Mazzurini, a significant technical base from which greatly improved studies will come. (Author)
