Abstract : This project was undertaken to develop a preliminary operational concept for the Defense Communications Operations Support System (DCOSS) and conforms to the format of U.S. Air Force Regulation 57-1, Operational Requirements - Statement of Operational Need (SON). This document presents a summary of our proposed configuration and employment of the DCOSS. In particular, it provides preliminary guidance for the operations and use of shared and dedicated resources of the Defense Communications System (DSC) under DCOSS control. The Total Operations Plan(TDOP) is being developed by DCA to provide a standard framework for planning the evolution and improvement of DCS services. The TDOP accomplishes it's objectives by integrating operations and maximizing the use of computer technology. This approach is based on the methodology used by the pre-divesture Bell System in their Total Network Operations Plan. (TNOP).
