A naval tactical data system is

[a] complex of data inputs, user consoles, converters, adapters, and radio terminals interconnected with high-speed, general-purpose computers and its stored programs. Combat data is collected, processed, and composed into a picture of the overall tactical situation that enables the force commander to make rapid, accurate evaluations and decisions.[1]

The original "Naval Tactical Data System" was developed by the U.S. Navy in the 1950s and first deployed in the early 1960s for use on combat ships.
