Abstract : This report is the product of a committee convened in May 1980 by the National Research Council, at the request of the Secretary of the Air Force, to review Air Force plans for modernizing its Base Level Automation System. At the time of the Secretary's request, a plan for modernizing existing computer systems--called the Phase IV Program--was being reviewed by Congress, the General Accounting Office (GAO), and the General Services Aministration (GSA). Appendix A of this report is a brief historical review of protracted Air Force efforts to modernize its base level automation system.
