Abstract : Results are presented of an investigation to develop a method for storing and retrieving unstructured narrative data (for example, messages) by semantically-sensitive techniques suitable for automation. Undertaken for the Office of Naval Research as part of its MAFTEP (Methods for Analysis of Fleet Tactical Effectiveness and Performance) Program, this research responds to a specific Naval requirement for techniques to improve the command decision process via capture and analysis of Fleet exercise command-and-control data.
