Major Item Special Study (MISS) reports are performed on DA Form 2410 reportable components. These are time change in items and certain condition change items selected because of high cost or need for intensive management. Basically, the MISS reports are concerned with analyzing reported removal data presented in the Major Item Removal Frequency report The failure modes reported for each removal are examined and grouped into categories which are intended to clarify the intent of the data reporting. From the data, removal distributions can be plotted and an MTR (mean time to removal) can be calculated. The MISS reports then investigate possible cost savings based on total elimination of selected failure modes. These modes are chosen because of the percentage of failures they represent and/or because they appear to be feasible Product Improvement Program areas

The following topics relating to the conservation of energy resources are discussed. (1) The dependence of the United States on foreign supplies of oil and gas, and the extent to which energy conservation can provide greater national security through the reduction of imports. (2) The economic and technical feasibility of extending the use of available fuel reserves over a longer period of time through more efficient use of production and controls. (3) The consequences of a comprehensive federal program for energy conservation, considering the fact that existing policy is based on the premise that federal and state regulations should encourage industry to meet whatever demands are created in the marketplace. (4) The extent to which advances in finding new energy sources, i.e., solar, breeder, or controlled thermonuclear, will lessen the need for energy conservation.

Terrestrial applications of solar cells and design systems are considered for those applications that show the most promise for becoming practical and accepted by users within the next
e years. The study includes the definition. categorization, evaluation and screening of the most attractive potential terrestrial applications for solar cells. Potential markets are initially grouped and categorized in a general sense and are weighted in priority by their business volume, present and future. From a categorized list including marine, transportation, security. communication. meteorological and others. 66 potential solar cell applications have been cataloged. A methodology was formulated to include the criteria for evaluation and screening. The evaluation process covers all parts and components of the complete system required for each application and gives consideration to all factors, such as engineering, economic, production, marketing and other factors that may have an influence on the acceptance of the system.

The report describes the technical aspects and potential applications of a computer-based model simulating the flow of airmen through basic training and entry-level technical training. This report gives an extensive description of input control cards and files necessary for an application of the Airman Training Line Simulator Model. The objective of this Training Line Simulator is to assess the impacts of alternative recruit classification and training policies under a wide variety of assumptions regarding the quality of recruits and entry-level training parameters Parameters accommodated by the model include mandatory course prerequisities, attrition and setback rates, class schedules and quotas, and a host of individual airman attributes. The model evaluates the impacts of training parameter changes by determining the maximum percent fills of training quotas, the size of the waiting lines for technical training courses, studentinstructor ratios and the numbers of setbacks. attritions and unassigned basic training graduates. The Training Line Simulator is an entity simulation model with imbedded optimizations to achieve optimal fill of training quotas. The model employs an asynchronous as opposed to incremental projection methodology to achieve execution efficiencies (Modified author abstract)

Over 3,100 airmen and 300 recruits in basic training returned interest inventories, termed the Vocational and Occupational Interest Choice Examination (VOICE). Items forming the inventory were primarily generated by examining job analyses in relation to the airman classification structure. Both a priori and occupational scales were developed based on responses obtained by mail inventory administration of airmen who indicated satisfaction with their career fields. Scales were developed on half-samples and a cross-validation technique employed. A comparison was made, in order to assess validity, of the number of individuals correctly predicted to be members of a service career field or men-in-general using the scales versus the number of individuals one would expect to correctly predict without use of the scales. Scale weights developed in one half-sample were applied to responses obtained in the other half-sample in the above comparison. (Modified author abstract)

Using a number of forecasting techniques, it is concluded that the volume, complexity, and growth rates of scientific and technical information have been grossly underestimated. By the middle part of the next decade it is estimated that the annual output of scientific and technical information may reach 12-14 million unduplicated items, compared to 2 million items now produced annually. By this reckoning the recent slowdown in the US Production of scientific and technical information is more than offset by acceleration in the growth rates of such information throughout the rest of the world Arguments that the sheer volume of this material will absolutely necessitate the use of sophisticated electronic information processing systems, and predictions that the present industry/ service-dominated economy and society will be replaced by a new social order and structure which will be information oriented are presented. Reaction to this presentation was centered upon the definitional aspects of STI. Noting a lack of agreement on definition, it is concluded that the classification of information by categories is useful for analytical purposes, but for policy decisions, information must be treated as an entity.

A study was conducted to determine the feasibility of applying remote sensing techniques to Army needs for data in environmental monitoring, resource management, and master planning at multipurpose military installations in the continental United States The environmental data requirements for these purposes were defined, and a general assessment was made of the applicability of current photographic, thermal infrared, and microwave imaging systems to obtain these data. Aerial photographic techniques were found to be the ones most generally applicable to acquisition of data relevant to basic environmental conditions. Prototype products, consisting of maps of basic environmental conditions, cultural features, and land use were produced from aerial photography of Fort Belvoir. Virginia, and a surrounding area.
