Abstract : As the result of a program of shock hardening and underwater explosion shock tests on operating ships authorized by the Chief of Naval Operations, large quantities of information are being accumulated on shock damage to and malfunctioning of equipment, and on the circumstances under which these occur. A system for storing, collating, and analyzing these data is essential to their effective utilization to improve the Fleet by increasing the reliability of vital equipment and to evaluate the effectiveness of the shock-hardening program itself. Program STARSHINE, which utilizes the LARC computer, was devised to meet this need. This report describes the program and its use. (Author)
