Abstract : This thesis supports the Naval Postgraduate School's (NPS) program to develop a multimedia (text, voice, graphics) command and control (C2) workstation as a Decision Support System to aid players of the Research, Evaluation, and Systems Analysis (RESA) facility. RESA is a Naval wargame that focuses on the battle group/force level operations and command and control decision-making. NPS will interface this workstation with the wargame to provide players the capability to access and analyze game data in order to improve their decision-making ability. The objective of this thesis is to design a data base for the C2 workstation using data extracted from the game blackboard. The design will consist of a Semantic Data Model for the logical representation of the data and a relational data base design implemented on the ORACLE Data Base Management System (DBMS). This design provides a detailed specification of the data base structure and is intended to be used during implementation of the DBMS on the workstation. (Theses)
