Abstract
THE VOLUME OF INFORMATION AVAILABLE TO DECISION MAKERS IN THE GOVERNMENT AND PRIVATE SECTORS IS OVERWHELMING, AND IS GROWING DAILY. EXISTING DATA BASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS (DBMS) HAVE SEVERAL SHORTCOMINGS IN DEALING WITH THIS INFORMATION RELATE TO 1) THE REQUIREMENT TO DEFINE A PRIORI, RIGID STRUCTURES FOR THE DATA AND 2) THEIR INEFFICIENCY AT ADDING NEW RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN DATA ITEMS ON THE FLY. THIS PROJECT WILL PRODUCE DESIGN DOCUMENTATION FOR, AND A WORKING PROOF-OF-CONCEPT PERSONAL COMPUTER BASED DBMS, USING EXISTING COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE PRODUCTS, FOR THE RAPID STORAGE AND RETRIEVAL OF STRUCTURED AND UNSTRUCTURED ACOUSTIC INTELLIGENCE (ACINT) DATA. A NEW SOFTWARE TECHNIQUE KNOWN AS "TRANSFORM IMAGING" CAN OVERCOME THE ANALYTICAL AND DATA MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS OF CURRENT DBMSS BY CAPTURING THE ACTUAL CONTENT OF DOCUMENTS IN A MULTI-DIMENSIONAL, PHASE-SPACE, IMAGE. THIS DBMS ALLOWS EXTREMELY RAPID AND EFFICIENT CATEGORIZATION OF DATA AND PERMITS RETRIEVAL OF THAT DATA WITH A FRACTION OF THE COMPUTATIONAL COMPLEXITY THAT IS NORMALLY ASSOCIATED WITH THIS TASK.
