Abstract:

This thesis is designed to present a detailed description and analysis of the Naval Communications Processing and Routing System NAVCOMPARS. Discussed are the objective and principle of the Naval Telecommunications Automation Program NTAP, with emphasis placed on delineating the shore components, particularily NAVCOMPARS. The capabilities of NAVCOMPARS are identified by describing the patterns of message flow through the automated system. Also considered are the manpower and training characteristics and the projected link with the Information Exchange Subusutem IXS. A model of the central processing unit is presented in order to highlight the sequence of procedures employed by an automated message processing system. The underlying intent of this thesis is to provide a compact document which could be used as introductory material to acquaint non-computer specialists with the characteristics, requirements and potential of the Naval communications Processing and Routing system.
