Abstract : The purpose of this study was to examine and model electronic mail systems available to USCENTAF/SC planners at Shaw AFB and then compare them to a model of the AUTODIN communications system. A quantitative comparison of each model resulted in an overall most advantageous model. Each model's strengths and weaknesses were reviewed to determine if the overall most advantageous model was best for all situations. Electronic mail systems available for use by USCENTAF/SC planners at Shaw AFB included Honeywell 6000 electronic mail services and facsimile. Electronic mail services available on Honeywell 6000 computer were mail, terminal-to-terminal and terminal-to-console. The facsimile service available was for unclassified transmissions only.
