Abstract:

This report demonstrates the use of the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences ARI mission databases for the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, CA. It has a general discussion of the types of data that are included in the databases, as well as general principles of variable naming. The text also contains a series of examples that use the INGRES query language to extract, categorize, and summarize data contained in the databases. It is intended as a learning guide for users of the database who wish to construct their own set of database queries associated with specific research requirements. We shall explore the principal linkages between the INGRES tables in the data base, that is the Player Identification Number PID, Logical Player Number LPN and the Time of an event. It should be noted that our data bases are event driven, because all the entries in the Fire Event Table FET, the Pairing Event Table PET, and the Indirect Fire Missions Fired IFMF result from actions initiated in the training exercise.
