      DASA SUPPORT OF THE NATIONAL MILITARY CONTROL CENTER

      Expand and enhance the data processing and display capabilities
      of the existing Alternate Joint War Room complex at the AJCC. on an
      interim basis pending completion of new building construction presently
      being proposed; thereafter, to serve as the central data processing and
      display center for the AJWR.

      b. M)DDAc Emergency Capability System (Am). The first oper
      ationrl facility of the M)DDAC was established and began operation in
      early July 1961. This facility provides operational damage assessment
      to JCS elements (Joint Alternate Command Element) in the AJCC. In
      addition, the ECAP system has a limited capability to provide status of
      forces and resources to JACE as well as to monitor the status of execution
      of operational war plans.
      increased capability in July 1962 and consequent phase-over into an
      interim operational capability pending completion of Building D, AJCC.
      The ECAP System is presently supported by an IBM 1401 computer system
      (annual rental $160,000).

      will be supported by the IBM 1401.

      Alternate Joint War Room Complex. An interim modest expansion
      of the existing Alternate Joint War Room complex will be accomplished
      to accommodate data processing facilities and display facilities and
      equipment to support the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Secretary of Defense
      in the command/control and evaluation of national military forces and re+
      Sources. The establishment of an evolutionary basis will enable the
      Alternate Joint War Room complex to accept inputs of data from the existing
      command and control systems of the JCS, Services, CINCs, atomic coordination
      machinery, and other responsive agencies. Funds are additionally required
      for shock-mounting of data processing and supplementary equipment which
      would be utilized during this time period.

      EDPS capability in the Alternate Joint War Roam complex will enable the
      JCS Joint War Room in the Pentagon and the alternate at the AJCC, to
      proceed in close har.ony towards the developnent and maintenance of a
      general war data base which can in turn be provided to the mobile
      national eme=ency c~mmand posts and appropriate CINCs as interface
      capabilities develop. Imrmediate but reasonable expansion of the existing
      command center is required to accomodate the EDP and display equipwnt
      pending the establishment of a fully adequate Alternate National Military
      Command Center.
