Abstract : This report documents the current automated capabilities of the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI). It describes the hardware, software, and communications infrastructure currently in place to support the ARI community at ARI Headquarters in Alexandria, VA. In addition to the capabilities report, this document also includes a draft requirements report, an enterprise architecture report describing alternative information systems architecture components and a proposed ARI architecture, a migration implementation plan, and hard copy of a briefing on the implementation plan. Vector undertook this effort to baseline the current Automated Information Systems (AIS) infrastructure to determine how enhancements could be made to streamline operations and reduce overall life-cycle maintenance costs. The information will be applied to the design of a new AIS that will provide expanded capabilities and enhanced network connectivity for remote research units.
