Thank you for having taken the time to allow me to review with you the upcoming Symposium referred to in the invitation letter from Admiral Shapiro, enclosure (1). i. As you well know, some uses of computers... analysts, writers, editors, researchers and librarians... are prone to overlook the many opportunities to increase the scope and quantity of intelligence production inherent in modern day computer technology.- It is primarily for these types of users that the Symposium is. being conducted; all speakers have been asked to skew their presentations to the analyst, writer, editor audience. 3. Within the next week, we will be sending you a number of pocket-size pamphlets'outlining details of the Symposium. These pamphets are for distribution to those you feel could profit from attending all or part of the Symposium. Inside the pamphlet will be a card to be filled out by the individual planning to attend the seminar plus a pre-addressed envelope in which to send the card. With these cards, we will be able to get an accurate count of people planning to attend as well as the specific concurrent sessions the individual plans to attend. 4. Please note that the reply cards referred to in (3) above are in addition to the list of attendees and their clearances requested in Admiral Shapiro's letter. We would appreciate your sending that list of attendees to the Naval Intelligence Support Center (NISC-OSS) by 17 July 1978 vice 30 June.

Each attendee will have the opportunity to attend four of these sessions.) ACHIEVING A COMMUNICATIONS BREVITY GOAL One of the key objectives of any intelligence unit is brevity. A worthwhile goal might be a 150 reduction in time to encrypt and transmit intelligence, and a 10% reduction in the number of printed words. Can it be achieved? If so, how? ADVANCES IN COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY FOR SIGNAL PROCESSING Improvements in computer circuitry and logic density have resulted in new .technology becoming available for signal processing that is faster and less expensive than ever before. Applications of the new technology include digital filters and A/D-and D/A converters with improved performance, reliability, and flexibility. This session will survey the state of the art of technology, including both hardware and software, and is intended for intelligence analysts. Approved For Release 2002/10/31 : CIA-RDP84-00933R000200040004-4 -Approved iF?er Release 2002/10/31 : CIA-RDP84-0 3R000200040004-4 INTELLIGENCE PRODUCTION SYMPOSIUM AN UPDATE ON COMPUTER TERMINAL CAPABILITIES or: THE AUTOMATED OFFICE Advances in both technology and computer communication facilities and procedures have greatly increased the utility and versatility of a computer system from the point of view of a computer user at a terminal. This discussion will highlight some of the capabilities now available to that user, from full screen text editing to graphic design to electronic mail. The session should interest all computer users including data processing professionals. The Advanced Research Projects Agency Computer Network (ARPANET) is a nationwide network linking computers at universities, government installations, and private contractors. This talk discusses some of the major concepts of ARPANET such as distributed processing, packet switching, and store-and- forward message routing. Also discussed are some of the capabilities and'ities available' to the users of the network: resource sharing, remote terminal access, remote job entry, program libraries, and mailboxes. Analysts and other computer users should be interested in'this'presentation. DATA SECURITY: ACHIEVABLE WITH COMPUTER SYSTEMS? Data processing systems utilized in handling classified inl;orin ati?on must be provided with special and procedures to safeguard that data. Encryption techniques, transmission protocols; user authorization checks, and passwords are among the procedures currently employed. This discus ;ion will t, these facilities and their limitations and offer an insight to future developments in computer security. The session is intended for analysts and technical writers who create and access classified data bases, rather than data processing professionals who implement and manage the security facilities. Approved For Release 2002/10/31 : CIA-RDP84-00933R000200040004-4 Approved For Release 2002/10/31 : CIA-RDP84:.QB933R000200040004-4 Planning for adequate computer facilities available to each user requires having a realistic estimate of the users' needs for computer resources. Timely decisions must be. made 'concerning how many terminals get assigned to each organization and how much computer time and memory space should be allocated to each user. one effective instrument for monitoring and controlling usage of computer resources is the budget. An overview of basic methods for managing the budgeting process is presented. Managers and data processing planners should be interested in this subject. The search for convenient and efficient ways to use computers to store, process, and retrieve data has led to the development of computer software to facilitate these capabilities. A small class of this software qualifies as "data base- management systems." This presentation will clarify-- qualification for a`.,data base management systems (DBMS) ? types of DBMS available today ? advantages and problems of using a DBMS ? features commonly available in current DBMS considerations in developing applications that share a common data base . Analysts, technical writers, and managers who work with information that can -be stored on a computer will benefit from this discussion.

In this context, general DBMS fea tunes will be introduced. The roles of data dictionaries, data base administrators, data management languages, and report generators will also be discussed. To focus the topic, a specific DBMS will be featured: the Integrated Database Management System (IUMS) marketed by Cullinane Corporation, which is already installed at NIPSSA and under which several projects are being implemented. This session should interest intelligence analysts and their management as well as computer professionals. INTERACTIVE DATA BASE QUERY A variety of flexible tools are provided to the users of a modern. interactive query system supplied with the appropriate computer programs. Users cab build private files, can share the use of others, files, can transmit information to other users, and .can conduct searches of-'data bases for information, among other capabilities. ' An interactive system now under development in another intelligence agency will provide those and other facilities to users at computer terminals. That system will serve as the basis for discussing both the functional capabilities and the considerations for developing a comprehensive interactive query system. The session should interest both data processing professionals and those in scientific and technical billets who could utilize the facilities of such a system.

Planning topics to be covered include organizational alternatives, project t.eams, and personnel policies. Scheduling and control techniques are discussed in terms of an. overall phase plan for system development and implementation. The phase plan extends from the original idea through planning, specification, design, implementation, test, acceptance, and follow-up. It is a guideline that coordinates the necessary management control functions with the development activities throughout the entire phase plan process. This session is designed to encourage thinking on a system-wide basis among management and professional personnel. Practical suggestions are provided on how to organize from beginning to end to achieve the IAIPS plan objectives. SIZING AND COMPARING CENTRAL HOST COMPUTING SYSTEMS The relative merits of available central host computing systems can be determined only when a profile of the projected total user, requirements is known. Because of hardware and ,software design differences- computer systems vary in their ability to process different categories of work. Being able to assess the capabilities (such as the performance) of various host computers in terms of a workload requires understanding the total requirements on the system as well as the specific requirements for each category of processing, such as batch, remote job entry, time-sharing, data base, sensor based, message switching, or real-time applications. Conflicting application requirements may preclude an optimal computer configuration; tradeoffs may be necessary. In this session the tools and methods available for users with known application requirements to evaluate host computer systems comparatively;. and to select equipment that best satisfies those requirements, will be discussed. The session should interest both computer users and data processing planners.

Emphasis is placed upon separating. content from form in such problems. The intended audience is managers, planners, and technical personnel with supervisory responsibilities. STANDALONE VERSUS SHARED RESOURCES Needs of computer users for data processing resources vary depending on a number of technical factors in addition to the organizational structure and chain-of-command relationships. Such factors include the amount of data to be processed, the frequency of adding or modifying data, the turnaround time permissible in which to process the data, security and integrity considerations, and the size, speed, and configuration of the computing systems available to the user. The relative importance of these factors indicates whether it is technically sounder for computer resources to he dedicated to one group of users or totibe shared among several groups. This session should assist users of data processing systems in specifying their requirements for computer resources, and those who will plan the acquisition and management of those resources.
