Abstract:

The substantial use of database technology in the collection and dissemination of information for naval tactical systems requires extensive data administration support. The Naval Warfare Tactical Data Base NWDTB, which is the Navys authoritative reference for tactical database format and structure, currently lacks sufficient data administration tools to provide an adequate level of data management and control. The feasibility of converting the NWTDB to an Information Resource Dictionary System IRDS, which will yield an enhanced dictionary capability, is investigated. An analysis of the enhancements generated by the conversion of a passive to active IRDS was also discussed. This research concludes that an IRDS implementation can produce extensive benefits for the NWTDB as well as for other tactical databases in use by the Navy. Keywords Active dictionary, Passive dictionary, Data dictionary, Military thesis.
