This thesis considers the tradeoffs involved in the selection of a computing device for general purpose tasks either on board a Naval vessel or at a shore installation. Three different means of computing are compared type-one, a programmable algebraic calculator using a postfix notation type-two, a programmable calculator using a BASIC language micro-programmed interpreter and type-three, a minicomputer with software language interpreters and compilers.
