This research note presents a plan for the development of an enhanced National Training Center database system for the Army Research Institutes Presidio of Monterey Field Unit. It lays out a series of four steps, each with a deliverable, or set of deliverables, which should result in an NTC database system that will support the research requirements of ARI-POM, and of the NTC research community for the foreseeable future. The four tasks are 1 Develop comprehensive design specifications for a database system that will support research based on NTC data. The goal of the specification phase is the documentation of specific data elements and relationships to be incorporated in the enhanced data base and 2 The second task is the development of the preliminary software design for the software which will create the NTC database as well as the user interface to the system. The completion of the preliminary design, coinciding with a Preliminary Design Review, constitutes a necessary freeze on the database design and implementation without delay, and without corrupting the basic design of the system. 3 The final step preparatory to coding is the detailed design, which includes the generation of pseudo code for all modules, as well as implementation of all data structures in the target language and 4 The final developmental step is the translation of the pseudo code generated in the detailed design to target language code, integrating the code with the data structures, and testing the completed system.
