Abstract : The study evaluated the economic benefits of monitoring and controlling various facility and utility systems at the Fort through the use of the UMCS. The UMCS is a utility monitoring and control system that utilizes several computer stations with appropriate application software connected by communication network systems (wire, radio, power line carrier or fiber optics) to a number of remote terminal units placed at various locations to perform the following functions: collect data, perform remote and local controlling functions, initiate alarm conditions, and report the information through the communication network back to the computer stations. The study resulted in a recommendation for the implementation of the Utility Monitoring and Control System at Fort Campbell under one project. The implementation of the UMCS project will save Fort Campbell $1,348,383 annually. The project will pay for itself in 3.65 years.
