Abstract
THE PROPOSED OPTICAL DISK STORAGE AND DBMS TECHNOLOGY SBIR WEDS ADVANCED OPTICAL TECHNOLOGY AND HARDWARE WITH STATE-OF-THE-ART DATA BASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (DBMS) AND GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM (GIS) CAPABILITIES. THE CLOSURE AND INTEGRATION OF THESE TECHNOLOGIES OFFERS INNOVATIVE, UNIQUE, AND POWERFUL TECHNOLOGY POTENTIAL FOR COMMERCIALIZATION. THIS INCLUDES THE INSTALLATION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF SUCH SYSTEMS AT BOTH GOVERNMENT AGENCIES AND COMMERCIAL FACILITIES. DURING PHASE I, AN ASSESSMENT OFFUTURE OPTICAL TECHNOLOGY HARDWARE WILL BE MADE; A REQUIREMENTS DEFINITION PERFORMED; AN OPTICAL DATABASE DESIGNED; AN ESTIMATE FOR ARCHIVE CONVERSION AT NSTL MADE; AND A PLAN FOR OPTICAL DISK SYSTEM INTEGRATION AT NSTL DEVELOPED. THIS WILL LEAD TO ACTUAL PHASE II INSTALLATION OF HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE AT NSTL AND INTENSIFIED MARKETING AND SALES ANALYSIS IN PREPARATION FOR PHASE III. IN THE LATTER TWO PHASES, 3M WILL PROVIDE CONSIDERABLE SUPPORT TO AUTOMETRIC AT NO COST TO THE GOVERNMENT.
