A new era in military microelectronics is unfolding. The Department of Defense, in 1979, initiated a six-year tri-service Very High Speed Integrated Circuits (VHSIC) Program that will develop a new technology base for integrated circuits. This program has the potential of producing systems-on-a-chip capability. VHSIC, with its high density circuits, promises drastic reductions in size, weight, and power requirements, while still yielding higher levels of reliability and performance. The impact of this technology on systems capabilities and availability offers solutions to many logistics support problems. This thesis explores the impact of VHSIC technology on material management and logistics support in the battle zone of the future with a focus on maintenance and systems capabilities enhancement attributes and how they will facilitate the logistics process in the highly intensified combat promised for the future.
