Abstract:

This report consists of an In-depth Assessment of the Status of Distributed Data Bases and Potential U.S. Navy Requirements with two accompanying bibliographies. Following a discussion of the distributed computer systems technology and its very considerable significance, the report proceeds to point out the implications of adoption of this decentralized approach. Proceeding further, the report concludes that the question of distributed processing applications to Navy strategic and tactical requirements must be approached from a more fundamental basis than system conversion. We recommend an analysis of Navy requirements from a functional frame of reference, during the course of which the functions and activities necessary to fulfill the Navys missions and objectives under various modes of operation must be studied and specified. When completed, this analysis will serve as a basis from which to move directly to decisions as to areas for which distributed systems are appropriate as well as those areas for which retention of more centralized system control is desirable.
