The NAVLIS Pilot Network Project will consist of the development and implementation of a distributed data base management system operating on the computers and with the data files at Fleet Data Processing Service Center Pacific DPSCPAC, Fleet Data Processing Service Center Atlantic DPSCLANT and the Naval Material Command Support Activity, NMCSA, Washington, D.C. DPSCPAC will be the master node or executive site of this three node network. Users will interrogate the network from a remote terminal at any location. The master site executive software will control query processing, and determine location of file or files to be queried. Messages will be sent from the master site via telecommunications to the satellite computer. Satellite software will interpret the message, locate appropriate files, retrieve requested information and send results to the master site. Results will be formatted and output to the user at the terminal. The pilot network will serve as a vehicle for testing the technical feasibility of the NAVLIS baseline concept, for testing user reaction and requirements, and for estimating system implementation costs.
