Abstract : The Electromagnetic Systems Effects Database (EMSED), also called AIRBASE, is a training guide for users not familiar with the AIRBASE database and its operating platform, the Macintosh computer (Mac). The objectives are to efficiently archive EMP test data and provide a useful signal processing and analysis tool for future EMP studies. The first chapter is an introduction to the hardware and software used for this program. This manual will guide the novice through the basics of the Mac operating system in Chapter 2. The use will also acquire knowledge in the basics of the AIRBASE database, and learn how to search, retrieve, and analyze data. A basic tutorial of 4th DIMENSION is included in Chapter 3, and MATLAB starter is provided in Chapter 4. The complete structure and contents of AIRBASE are discussed in Chapter 5. The AIRBASE database was developed under a commercial product called 4th DIMENSION to minimize development and update costs, while retaining the power of a fully relational database architecture.
