The paperless ship concept proposed by VADM Metcalf has been advocated at the highest levels in the Navy. ARGOS is a prototype multi-media database system under development at the Naval Postgraduate School in support of this superior concept. This thesis has implemented a tactical evaluation and assistance tool called a Threat Evaluator that can be used as an additional module to the ARGOS systems or as a stand alone application. Threat Evaluator automates many of the evaluation and record keeping duties that a Tactical Action Officer is required to perform during normal watchstanding evolutions. It demonstrated the advanced capabilities attainable in a system implemented with economical, off-the-shelf technology.
