Abstract:

HORIZONS TECHNOLOGY, INC., (HTI) PROPOSES TO EXAMINE THE BENEFITS OF APPLYING HYPERTEXT, EXPERT SYSTEM, AND MICROCOMPUTER TECHNOLOGIES TO INCREASE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING AND COMPUTATIONAL AIDS (CAP) AND BY INCREASING THE USABILITY OF REFERENCE DOCUMENTATION DESCRIBING COMPLEX NUCLEAR WEAPON EFFECTS PHENOMENOLOGY. A HYPERTEXT DOCUMENT ALLOWS THE USER TO EASILY ACCESS DIFFERENT TYPES OF INFORMATION, E.G., INFORMATION RELATED TO THE CURRENT FOPIC THAT IS CONTAINED IN ANOTHER PART OF THE DOCUMENT, THE RESULT OF A NUCLEAR WEAPON EFFECT CALCULATION, OR A GRAPHIC IMAGE, SUCH AS PLOTS AND SCANNED PHOTOGRAPHS. THIS RESEARCH EFFORT WILL FOCUS ON TWO CHAPTERS OF THE DEFENSE NUCLEAR AGENCY (DNA) DOCUMENT EM-1, IN PARTICULAR, CHAPTER 2, AIRBLAST PHENOMENA AND CHAPTER 5, UNDERWATER NUCLEAR EXPLOSION EFFECTS. HTI WILL EVALUATE SEVERAL NEWLY RELEASED HYPERTEXT/EXPERT SYSTEM "SHELLS" AND SELECT THE ONE BEST SUITED FOR USE IN DEVELOPING A PROOF-OF-CONCEPT DEMONSTRATION OF A FUNCTIONING HYPERTEXT/EXPERT SYSTEM USING THE ABOVE MENTIONED MATERIAL. PHASE I ESTABLISHES A SET OF PRELIMINARY REQUIREMENTS AND CULMINATES WITH THE DELIVERY OF A FUNCTIONAL PROOF-OF-CONCEPT DEMONSTRATION. PHASE IIINCORPORATES USER FEEDBACK INTO A FORMAL SPECIFICATION FOR THE PRODUCT AND CULMINATES WITH THE DELIVERY AND DEMONSTRATION OF A PROTOTYPE SYSTEM INCLUDING AN EXPANDED DATABASE OF "HYPERTEXTED" DOCUMENTATION MATERIALS. PHASE III DEVELOPS AND INSTALLS THE PRODUCTION SYSTEM ON THE SELECTED HOST HARDWARE AND INCLUDES THE TRANSLATION OF AN AGREED UPON SET OF DOCUMENTS INTO HYPERTEXT FORMAT. A VIDEO TAPE ILLUSTRATING SOME OF THE PROPOSED HYPERTEXT CONCEPTS, IS INCLUDED WITH THIS PROPOSAL.
