Abstract : During the period of performance for this project significant enhancements and modifications were made to the following Archive Databases and Tools: Automated Finders Guide (AFG), Battle Replay, Mission Critical Event (M CE) and Take Home Package (THP). The purpose of this report is to provide detailed user documentation for the Archive Databases and Tools that were enhanced during Delivery Order 28. The AFG is the 'card catalog' of the CTC Archive. It contains the rotation and mission summary data for each Task Force mission and provides listings of data sources that are available in the Archive to support mission analysis. The Battle Replay is a MS-Windows program that shows the movements and firing engagements of the units training at the NTC. The MCE database provides battle summary information consisting of narrative segments from the THP, including the commander's intent, task organization, mission statement and concept of the operation. The MCE also includes a graphic time line representation of major battle events. The THP database is an ASCII text viewer with a specialized menu system providing access to the THP files.
