Field Operations and Federal and Regional Policy Changes. Satellite Technology Demonstration, Technical Report No. 0334.
Anderson, Frank; And Others
The Satellite Technology Demonstration (STD), through its unique field services network (the STD's Utilization Component), was able to develop and insure Project credibility among its many regional, state, and local participants. How the field service mechanism was used to maintain positive relationships between the STD and its many constituents was the focus of this report. Specifically covered were how federal and regional policies (reduction in Project funds) altered the STD's organization, programing, salary scales, training program, site selections, broadcast schedules, future plans, and equipment purchases. A description of how the field services network was used to insure acceptance of those changes among participants with no loss of support or enthusiasm for the STD is also presented. (Author/HB)
