Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis is to design, develop and implement a personnel locator system at the Naval Postgraduate School NPS. A prototype locator System was developed and implemented on the NPS TCPIP network. The locator provides information such as email, addresses, phone and fax numbers, and building and office locations, as well as facilities such as hotlinks for email applications and homepages. In addition, the NPS Locator automatically updates its personnel information on a configurable time schedule. This thesis includes a discussion of the prototype development to include requirements, tools, and design. Some program code is included as appendices. This paper also discusses the benefits and considerations of intranet technology, and explores a popular Web application architecture on which the NPS Locator is based. Finally, this thesis makes recommendations for improvements to the NPS computing environment to allow for future intranet development.
