Abstract : In the current circumstances of the Korean Army, the engineer units perform two major missions-river crossing and obstacle/denial operations - to support the combined arms team. To accomplish these missions, engineer units need various kinds of data and information during the planning phase of operations. This kind of data and information can be provided by the information processing system that is to be developed in this thesis. This thesis is to apply a computer based information processing system to the planning phase of the military operations. The author presents an intelligent decision support system for the Army Engineer Operations, specifically the river crossing and obstacle/denial operations. The purpose of this system is to maintain and analyze the related information stored in the computer and to provide the resulting information to the commanders and their staffs to help them make their decisions more effectively. To accomplish this task, the author has used the structured system analysis and design methodology through the system development process, and has implemented the river crossing operation in a microcomputer with dBASE III Plus as an example.
