Abstract : A user-friendly, portable data base was needed for the entry, storage, and retrieval of information on terrorist incidents, terrorist groups, sources of information, and anti-terrorism research in progress. A data base model was developed using a commercially available software package. (dBase III+). Representative information was loaded into the data base files and the system was demonstrated to potential users. Based on suggestions received at the demonstrations, the system was refined and a users manual written. A model anti-terrorism research data base called TRACKER was developed. TRACKER is easily customized to the particular needs of an organization. In addition, TRACKER has potential applications in addition to anti-terrorism research.
