Abstract : This report describes the functionality of the Geophysical Data Fusion System (GDFS), which is a software system designed for use in support of environmental remediation studies at United States Air Force bases. Specifically, this report provides a detailed description of the version of GDFS which has been implemented at Maxwell Federal Division's Reston, Virginia Geophysics Office and installed on a UNIX workstation at the Phillips Laboratory facility at Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts. This prototype system is directed toward a specific application to the Massachusetts Military Reservation (MMR) located on Cape Cod, and incorporates a wide variety of site specific environmental and geotechnical data, as well as selected geophysical analysis modules. Access to these data and analysis capabilities is provided via a graphical user interface operating off of a SPOT(registered) satellite image of western Cape Cod. An overview of the functionality of the software is presented in the main body of the text; installation and startup instructions, a sample session and a comprehensive system reference are presented in Appendices.
