Abstract
A spatial database management system, SDBMS-1, has been designed and implemented at DCIEM by Collins & Moon Limited, for use in experiments on command and control. The system provides for multimodal user interaction. It is based on a MASCOT network which assures modularity and flexibility of compoent design. User queries are passed to Mistress, a relational database management system, which provides answers in the form of textual and graphic displays. Three appendices to the report give details of the MASCOT network and the implementation of Mistress, and describe the topological connection of disjoint topographic line data.
