This Note is a user guide for the RAND Database Handling (DBH) system developed to operate on the PACAF (Pacific Air Forces) Cryptologic Support Group SAAFE database used to support a project on airbase vulnerabilities of potential adversaries in the Pacific Basin. The guide, which assumes the reader has a basic knowledge of UNIX and its utilities, discusses the design of the DBH software, presents the format of the data file on which the DBH software operates, and discusses the use of the DBH software. An appendix contains examples of various output listings produced by the software.
