Future Technologies Needs Analysis. An Air University Staff Report


This report summarizes the findings of a survey of all permanently assigned personnel at the Air University at Maxwell Air Force Base (Alabama) to determine what future workplace technologies will be needed to support the university's two major programs, Professional Military Education (PME) and Professional Continuing Education (PCE). The objectives of the study were to determine exactly what personnel perceived their needs to be for a local area network; for future technologies for presenting PME and PCE curricula; and for achieving the necessary staff work of support organizations. There were 1,211 respondents who provided information on: (1) their willingness to accept technology advances; (2) potential workload savings by automation; and (3) specific equipment and software requirements. The survey data were also designed to permit future mapping of external and internal data flow at the Air University. The text is supplemented by seven figures and six tables, and four appendices include a copy of the survey questionnaire and analyses of the data for individual questions. A descriptive analysis of future technological needs in a military university based on this study is attached. (EW)
