Abstract
This thesis discusses the implementation of a prototype of a decision support system (DSS) for aviation mishap reporting. The Naval Aviation Safety Program, as defined by OPNAVINST 3750.6Q is a complete reference for the reporting requirements for naval aviation mishap reporting, and this thesis augments the reporting requirements by defining a mishap investigation heuristic in the form of a logical model. This model directly addresses problems an investigator may encounter in the course of a mishap investigation such as logical omissions and incomplete deduction or investigation. Typically, mishap investigators are faced with numerous, unorganized pieces of evidence which develop into a complex web of interrelationships which recreate the events which caused the mishap. Our model suggests a process which organizes evidence and cause factors, and then we automate the model in a decision support prototype. The system also addresses the "administrative overhead" of a mishap by outlining the architecture of a complete system providing facilities for initial and final mishap reporting in addition to the automation of the deliberation model.
