The Naval Postgraduate School has actively explored the design and implementation of NPSNET, a real-time three-dimensional simulator on low-cost, readily accessible workstations. NPSNET involves a tremendous amount of interaction between vehicle, terrain, obstacle and ordnance objects in a dynamic simulation system. There exists a need for an organized, efficient storage structure that allows real-time retrieval of objects and their interactive relationships. This work concentrates on selection and design of a vehicle database model to maximize storage and real-time retrieval of data for the NPSNET visual simulator. The results of this effort can be applied to the overall system, NPSNET, in a distributed database management system.
