This system is designed to keep track of subpoenas that are served on one of the world's largest financial institutions. Each subpoena is entered into the system with all plaintiffs, defendants and business entities that are involved. An investigator is assigned to each case.

Funds Management and Programming
Coastal Technologies developed two systems for use by the US Army to manage the Chaplains' Non-Appropriated Fund and programs to support the spiritual well-being of the troops and their families. The Command Master Religious Program enables the congregations to plan and budget for all activities, while NMS provides complete accounting functions. An electronic auditing program was provided to the Chief of Chaplains to enable auditors to quickly check a fund for fraud or tampering.
The GENNY Accounting System is designed for organizations that require a number of specialized modules in their accounting program. GENNY permits entries as large as 100 billion dollars, and provides an unusually complete audit trail, and automatically generates numerous types of transactions.

Naval Flight Mission Debriefing
This system was developed for the US Navy to capture and maintain flight information for airborne early warning squadrons. It automates the maintenance of air crew qualifications, tracks aircraft flight hours and equipment failures, and generates reports and graphs for all missions flown. A complete electronic record of every flight is maintained, and the reports provide many decision making tools. We could tell you more, but then we'd have to kill you.
This system integrates laser scanners, parts counting scales, and vertical carousels for eight packers in a plastics manufacturing plant. After a user scans a bar code, the computer identifies the part in its database and moves the carousel to the appropriate position. While the carousel is in motion, the scale is tared for the box that will be used to hold the parts, while the screens attached to the carousel display part number, name, and the number of pieces per box. The operator then adjusts the number of pieces in the box until the scale counter matches the standard quantity displayed on the carousel. The parts database is downloaded periodically from an on-site minicomputer.
Political Action Committee fund raising, accounting and reporting are managed by this system. Federal and State reports are generated in the appropriate government formats. The system transfers data to other software packages for additional analysis when necessary.
As an added feature, the system provides accounting modules, maintains multiple checking accounts and prints checks.
