Modelling of NSF sites on ARPANET

The DDN Program Management Office (PMO) is responsible for management decisions
regarding the ARPANET. It is my understanding that the DDN PMO assigned the
task of analyzing the performance of the ARPANET with the addition of NSF sites
to the Defense Communications Engineering Center (DCEC). It is my
understanding that DCEC uses the same network analysis tools and models which
were used to manage the ARPANET configuration at the time of its rapid growth
in the early to mid 70s. The statements above are second-hand or farther - I
do not have first-hand knowledge, except that I know BBN was not assigned this
analysis task. Perhaps someone from the DDN PMO can tell us all more.
