Abstract : This paper cites recent applications of interactive graphic data processing techniques to a variety of military problems under study at the US Army Concepts Analysis Agency (CAA). First, a brief description will be given of the UNIVAC hardware and associated software supporting these applications at CAA. Next, the characteristics of five currently operational packages will be summarized to illustrate the application of interactive graphics to specific problems in force planning, war gaming and military systems analysis. Finally, some progress in the conception and development of new applications is reported.
