Corps of Engineers water control data systems encompass all of the instruments, equipment, computers, and software used to collect and use environmental data in real-time water control activities. A major procurement of mini-computer systems in 1985 enhanced the performance and capabilities of the systems. As the economic and technical life of these computers approaches, an evaluation of current and future requirements for their replacement has been initiated. The likely replacement architecture will consist of a dedicated workstation network.
