Abstract : The Analyst Workbench was developed at the Naval Weapons Center to provide analysts with the ability to interactively visualize flight-test and simulation results in the study of missile performance and effectiveness. This technology integrates tools and utilities into one software package that not only assists analysts in gathering data, but that provides the means to analyze and assimilate the data. Visualization technologies--such as the Analyst Workbench--enhance communication between computer and analyst, analyst and analyst, and analyst and management. Current methods are an inefficient use of analysts' time and talents. The Analyst Workbench helps eliminate the large portion of time analysts now spend just searching for the data so this valuable time may be spent analyzing these data instead. Using these technologies to increase personnel productivity and organization communications will ensure the reliability and effectiveness of current and future guidance and control systems throughout the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
