The conceptual system is described in terms of functional flow diagrams and information flow diagrams. Six top-level functions of the system are identified and detailed in lower-level diagrams. The development of the concept is founded on an analysis of typical user requirements as reflected in typical user questions and in Navy instructions on environmental matters. The System concept makes maximum use of existing Navy systems to provide the required capability. It is a mix of human and computerized data handling capabilities, providing for flexibility and growth.
