Abstract : The organization and maintenance are presented of an automated sea surveillance file for merchant ships. The solution of this problem must be based on a description and definition of the file itself (formats of records in the files and incoming reports) and flow-charts describing the updating processes. However, the problem of sea surveillance is so extensive that to consider all the processes involved is beyond the scope of this investigation. Therefore only the more fundamental processes were considered. The study was conducted as a test case for evaluation of the usefulness of new concepts in computer memory organization generally, and the application of associative memories in particular.
