This thesis demonstrates how a new software technology, hypertext, can provide capabilities which will improve the handling and utilization of naval messages on board ship. The current process for shipboard message handling involves the use of communications equipment, computers, duplication machines, and such manual operations as control, distribution, annotation, filing and search. An Automated Message Handling System based on the hypertext concept offers opportunities to enhance each of these operations. The enhancements will come from performing required tasks in a more organized manner while requiring less dependence on paper and providing a far more efficient and effective means for using naval messages as an information resource. Developments in computer technology make it feasible to implement such a system on currently available, low cost, commercial hardware. This thesis includes a logical design for a hypertext message system developed using rapid prototyping techniques.
