PROGRESS REPORTS OF THE UNIT WERE ANALYZED, AND 47 ACTIVITIES WERE IDENTIFIED TO DETERMINE THOSE OBJECTIVES WHICH RECEIVED THE GREATEST FREQUENCIES OF ATTENTION. THEY WERE, IN ORDER, (1) PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR LINE PERSONNEL, (2) STIMULATE AND ENCOURAGE RESEARCH, AND (3) COLLECT AND DISSEMINATE INFORMATION.
