Abstract:

The report is written in an attempt to assess the electronic computer capability needed for a Navy-wide Environmental Protection Data Base NEPDB which will store data pertaining to ships, aircraft, and shore activities. The Base may vary from 0 to 100 centralization and from 0 to 100 automation of numerical and textual data handling. It is the intention of this report to show that with the use of minicomputers, large data processing equipment may not be necessary. The seemingly obvious concept of one large data bank, with one large computer centrally located may not be the way to maximize output while keeping costs at a minimum.
