Abstract : The Electronic Warfare Integrated Reprogramming (EWIR) database is the primary Department of Defense source for technical parametric performance data on noncommunications emitters. It has been identified by the National Air Intelligence Center as difficult to use in its current hierarchical database form. There are two problems addressed by this thesis. FIrst, is an object-oriented EWIR database a superior method for managing complex electronic warfare data collections? Second, is the prototype Object-Oriented Interface (O-OI) developed at the Laboratory for Database System Research in the Naval Postgraduate School capable of supporting a complex object-oriented database such as EWIR? To answer these questions, a subset of the EWIR Objective-Oriented Specification developed in a separate thesis is implemented on the O-OI. Using the O-OI Data Definition Language, the object-oriented EWIR database schema and its associated record data are stipulated and loaded to create the live database. Using the O-OI Data Manipulation Language, nine EWIR transactions are elaborated and executed.
