Abstract:

This effort investigated the applicability of the Teradata DBC1012 database computer to support Command, Control, Communications and Intelligence C3 functions. The DBC1012 is an excellent choice for new C3I systems. It has far more capability than current mainframe DBMSs for most C3I applications. The DBC1012 can provide continuous 24-hour, 365-day year operation using two or more host processors. It has excellent integrity support and good concurrency control and deadlock detectionresolution. The DBC1012 is a very complex black box with security in hardware, which makes security assessment difficult. Security tools are good but probably not sufficient for multi-compartment operation. Fifteen significant digit floating point calculations can be performed inside the database machine. The Teradata DBC1012 has an excellent foreign file capability, good facilities to browse data, and good tools for structured queries to support looking for patterns or trends in data. The DBC1012 would be very difficult to embed in an existing tightly coupled information systems, and most current C3I systems are tightly coupled. However, when additional functions must be added to current systems, implementing them on a Teradata 1012 might be desirable.
