This paper discusses the possibility of implementing a Local Area Network (LAN) within the Marine Corps Infantry Battalion. The idea of a LAN is proposed as an automated alternative to the status quo. As a mechanism of Distributed Data Processing (DDP) , the LAN is used to highlight one possible migration path along which the Battalion Consolidated Administration Center (BCAC) concept may evolve technologically. Current problems and functional requirements are identified and they provide the foundation upon which the LAN topology is based. Implementation guidelines and related issues are included in the discussion. A LAN benefits-analysis is presented in order to demonstrate obtainable productivity gains in dollar terms. Finally, this thesis should stimulate thought for developing a Battalion-Regiment-Division network and illuminate the feasibility of automating other battalion-like units within the Marine Corps.
