The objective of this thesis is to describe in detail the reasoning and development of a Waterfront Intranet which serves the shore-based staff and its numerous and geographically dispersed ships. This thesis is intended to show how a Waterfront Intranet can provide access to all of the in-port ships and staff members via a World Wide Web browser. It will provide more open communication in the Destroyer Squadron, quicker and more consistent information flows (service) to the ships, and reduced time spent on the telephone handling repetitive and often simple information exchanges. This intranet will be a Destroyer Squadron information clearinghouse, providing all key staff members with a 24-hour a day forum. Personnel will be empowered by information availability and are likely to be more proactive and innovative in the pursuit of mission readiness. A prototype has been developed to demonstrate the concept. The prototype is located at HTTP://VENUS. AS. NPS. NAVY. MIL
