Abstract:

A modern Combat Direction System CDS must have the capacity to perform real-time processing of tactical data from more than twenty interfaces. These include multiple tracking sensors, multiple weapons interfaces, electronic warfare, and multiple tactical data link systems. Efficient processing and display requirements in such sophisticated systems have greatly increased the development cost of fielding new systems. The Navy wishes to develop a Low Cost Combat Direction System LCCDS which could be installed on non-combatant ships or could augment the processing capability on ships currently equipped with CDS systems. During the initial portion of Increment One of the LCCDS project, a suitable object-oriented database management system OODBMS must be chosen to form the basis for the remainder of the project. The goal of this thesis is to determine the feasibility of using a commercially available OODBMS. Evaluation of three systems shows that GemStone, a product of Servio Logic Corporation, Alameda, CA, best fits the requirements of this project.
