The Director of Research and Laboratory Management, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, Research and Advanced Technology (OUSDRE(R/AT/R/LM)) has directed that DTIC be the DoD focal point for development of an intergovernmental intelligent gateway computer system. The gateway is a cooperative effort between DoD/DTIC, DOE, NASA, and NTIS. Present day access to information resources (data bases) is limited since each data base has its own complex access procedures and command language. In addition, results from multiple data bases cannot be combined or analyzed easily by the user. The gateway system will provide DoD researchers and managers access to many different data bases using a single simple access procedure. Data analysis, merging, past processing, and graphical presentation can be easily and quickly accomplished through the gateway.
