Abstract : This theses examines shipboard nontactical, unclassified information exchange and recommends a methodology which will reduce message traffic loading on the Naval Telecommunications System (NTS) and improve administrative performance in the fleet. The Navy's organizational information requirements are reviewed and evaluated. Specifically, it explores the advantages and difficulties of connecting Shipboard Nontactical ADP Program (SNAP) systems to the Defense Data Network (DDN). A review of existing information exchange procedures, including NTS, SNAP II, and DDN, is provided. An overview of the future Navy Data Communications Control Architecture (NDCCA) is presented along with an interim proposal to connect current and future architectures. An analysis of present Navy and commercial organizations using DDN-type applications such as File Transfer Protocol (FTP) and electronic mail is presented. Keywords: Message reduction, Shipboard, Electronic mail, Shipboard information exchange, Theses.
