ABSTRACT

        As  a  demonstration of the use of Ada for command and control
applications, the current airborne and ground mobile  systems  at  SAC
(600,000  LOC  -  JOVIAL)  are  being  consolidated into a mobile data
management system using a common data format and query  language  with
graphical  display  capabilities.   The  system includes an integrated
data management system, automatic and manual update of  the  data,  ad
hoc  data  retrieval,  building  and  maintaining  displays as well as
interaction with the  working  file,  display  transfers,  and  manual
backup.  It uses a multiple task environment to interface with several
I/O devices, enter data into and retrieve data  from  similar  systems
across the communication links, and provide timely access to about 500
million characters of data.

        Three  packages  (two  generic)  are provided from the MIMS at
this time:  balanced trees, source scanner, and variable lists.
