The ANT center has access to over 100 position, navigation and timing data sets, which are stored in different formats and locations. These data sets would be valuable to students designing filters as part of their research and could be used to supplement physical testing, but are mostly unavailable. This thesis presents the design and testing of three possible database approaches to store this PNT data in the Scorpion Data Model format. The best performing solution is then used to test two stochastic algorithms for multi-objective database queries in the Knapsack and Set Covering problem domains. This thesis provides valuable tools to enable future navigation research.
