Abstract:

This report presents the results of the first phase of the FASS project, during FY 84. The first phase of the FASS project comprised a multifaceted feasibility study that was the initial step of a multiyear effort intended to result in the development of a next generation rapid search system. This particular report documents the 1984 FASS study and makes no attempt to give the reader an update of the progress made since that time. Approaches to search, concepts of operations, and 1984 technologies in both hardware and software should be reconsidered in terms of present technologies. Related reports are listed under the Bibliography that appears at the end of this report.
