ARGOS is a prototype multi-media database system developed by CDR B. B. Giannotti and Lt Kevin F. Duffy at Naval Postgraduate School for their master's thesis. They describe how ARGOS can be used by the Battle Group Commander and shipboard personnel as an efficient and dynamic management and decision support tool. Their system was developed as a direct outgrowth of the "paperless ship" philosophy expressed by VADM Metcalf and has had many supporters in DOD. This thesis furthered their research by analyzing, designing the administrative and personnel functional areas of ARGOS. The functions and processes identified were then partially implemented. ARGOS as a prototype system provides an effective and rapid method for developing and evaluating management tools and decision aids. This implementation demonstrates both the capabilities and benefits such a system would have for the Navy.
