Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis is to design a Tactical Database for the Low Cost Combat Direction System. The resulting design, which is intended to serve as the basis for the implementation of the Tactical Database, is a set of classes objects organized in a hierarchy, according to the object-oriented programming paradigm. In Chapter I, basic concepts about Combat Systems and Object-Oriented Database Management Systems are introduced. Chapter II reviews the basic requirements for the Tactical Database. In Chapter III, an object- oriented design methodology is proposed. A step by step description of the design process applied to the Tactical Database is presented in Chapter IV. Clustering, concurrency control, crash recovery, garbage collection, and database security are discussed in Chapter V. Finally, in Chapter VI, additional considerations about the design approach and consideration for future improvements are presented. Readers already familiar with object-oriented programming and Combat Direction Systems may be able to skip Chapters I and III, without loss of continuity. For a quick reference, a summary of the design is provided in the Appendix.
