Abstract

The use of operations research as a technology to solve many of the problems of government and industry has become a major field of study within the very short span of the last fifty years. In the paper entitled, “Operations Research om the High Tech Military Environment: A Survey,” the reader is provided with a better understanding of the tenets of operations research through an examination of a representative sample of the latest operations research applications developed for the high tech environment. Initially, this involves providing the reader with some fundamental insights into what operations research is, what its practitioners do, and how the state-of-the-art has evolved to its present form. It then involves providing a brief description of what is meant by the term, “high tech military environment.” A survey, which constitutes the bulk of the material presented, focuses on how various operations research methodologies are being used within that environment. The paper concludes with a discussion of the possible directions operations research will take in the future, based on the present state-of-the-art.
