Abstract : The development model is installed in the Pentagon Telecommunications Center and is being operated by STRATCOM personnel. It consists of a Control Data 1700 Computer System with added communications links. It provides optical character recognition, message entry (both local and remote), message content validation, addressee routing, message formatting, and message output. Output may be to the AUTODIN network, to a local message switch, or to punched paper tape. Remote high-speed terminal operation is being simulated with equipment installed at the central site. This makes possible future expansion of the system by the expedient of added remote site equipment and a minimal additional programming package. The software developed for the AN/FST-6(XE-2) System is modular and operates in a real-time environment. (Author)
