Abstract:

This report describes the development of the basis for a mobile sonar technology information storage and retrieval system which will induce centralization of the appropriate documents into a library and will provide a reasonable method of accession to the desired documents. The work herein described has produced a concept which has been named the descriptive word approach to information storage and retrieval. The development of the descriptive word system involved first the organization of mobile sonar technology into ten categories which were derived from an overview of the physical process of a sonar system operating in its intended environment the categories were further subdivided. Next elements to describe other aspects of a document were generated. These are the sonar function concerned with, the general orientation of this subject, the key works, and finally the notation of any specifically designated sonar systems. Author
