Abstract:

The technical problem is concerned with providing data handling within a computer communications network. Elements of this program include a data language, a large capacity storage device and a special hardware system. The problem for these program elements is to design and develop a data language which allows network participants access to remote data to use and investigate a large capacity storage device as primary storage for the system and to investigate the use of a special hardware system the datacomputer as a data utility within the network for both remote and local users. The method selected to solve the technical problem is first to establish user applications, techniques for using the laser memory system, and the specific hardware components of the system. These efforts are followed by hardware acquisition, component integration and design of the programming system which will support the applications on the hardware system. The next procedures include implementing the software and testing actual user applications against the datacomputer system. Finally, results of this testing will be evaluated to produce the information to satisfy the stated program objectives.
