AT THIS TIME IT IS UNCLEAR WHICH BUS STRUCTURE (E.G., FUTUREBUS, VMEBUS, MULTIBUS II (TM OF INTEL CORPORATION) PROVIDES THE BEST PERFORMANCE OR UNDER WHAT CONDITIONS A PARTICULAR BUS STRUCTURE IS SUPERIOR. COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY ASSOCIATES, INC. PROPOSES TO PERFORM THE FUNDAMENTAL RESEARCH NECESSARY TO EVALUATE THESE SYSTEMS. CTA EXPECTS TO EMPLOY THIS METHODOLOGY IN DESIGNING SUCH SYSTEMS AS WELL AS PUBLISH RESULTS FOR OTHERS.
