Preliminary itinerary for the visit of U.S. Group to the U.S.S.R. in September 1974 1. As a result of exchange of opinions and information on the activities executed in each country in the field of automation of water resource systems, the two Parties have discussed forms and topics of cooperation and are considering as a. basis the proposals by the U.S.S.R. side for a Joint Program of Works to be executed on the project (Appendix No. 2) during the period of cooperation, as well as a Detailed Program of Works to be carried out during the first stage of cooperation (Appendix No. 3). These programs may be subject to change or supplement .after tree visit of the U.S. side to the U.S.S.R. 2. The Parties have agreed upon the necessity of mutual preliminary coordination, in more suitable forms for every particular case, of stage priority of works to be executed according to Scientific and Technical Cooperation Program. 3. The preliminary itinerary for the visit of the U.S. Group to the U.S.S.R. in September 1974 has been discussed and agreed upon (Appendix No. 4). It will be corrected and specified as well as sent to the U.S. Party 1 month prior to the Group's departure for the U.S.S.R. 4. The U.S.S.R. Group has been acquainted with the work of some of the water economy organizations and firms, as well as of some technical solutions at a number of big projects and visited the following organizations and project sites: Nebraska automated gated-pipe irrigation system near Grand Island Central Nebraska Public'Power and Irrigation District automated canal and supervisory control center University of Nebraska North Platte Experimental Station Federal and state water resource features in Central Valley Basin, California California Aqueduct and Westlands Water District Approved For Release 2002/05/0'R: CIA-RDP79-00798A000600100006-5 Approved Foi elease 2002/05/07 : CIA-RDP79-00799pt000600100006-5 USDA/ARS automation research at Palo Verde Irrigation District Salt River Project Bureau of Reclamation Engineering and Research Center Laboratories and data processing facilities 5.

The Coordinators agreed that it would be expedient to create experimental irrigation systems in both countries. The final objective for the creation of experimental projects for mutual research is to select and develop, as well as to test experimentally, a complex of technical and program means aimed at providing Optimum control of technological processes in automatic irrigation systems of different types. This work should include the development of recommendations on design and operation of similar systems. Taking into account various natural and design features, the projects must be typical from a technological point of view and located in a more typical and perspective area of farming under irrigation as well as include all the main technological processes. For the ur pose of implementation of works associated with the creation of erimentap9jeCts, both-sides agreed with the following: During the period of July-August 1974, the U.S.S.R. Party is to prepare the necessary technological and technical documentation on the selected project and to supply all the data to the U.S. Party as well as to elaborate on preliminary requirements on technological process in .automatic control systems (T.P.A.C.S.). The U.S.S.R. Party will present the possibility for the U.S. Party to get acquainted with these projects in the field. During the period of July-August 1974, the U.S. Party will prepare a list of organizations involved with production of water systems automation equipment.

During the implementation of the second stage, it is expedient to arrange two meetings of the U.S.-U.S.S.R. Groups in 1975: the first one in September, USA to discuss and confirm the project of technical requirements on collecting, transmitting, and processing information, means and technological process control, as well as handing over the catalogs of the technical check and control means; the second one in October, U.S.S.R. to discuss and confirm the technical assignment to design the automatic reclamation systems. Each Group should consist of four or five persons sent for a period of 14 days.
