Routing Arbiter database.  
The Routing Arbiter project was the first to attempt automated
arbitration of routing.  The database was intended to drive 
machines, called route servers, which were placed at the NSF
NAPs. ISPs were expected to peer with the RS machines, gaining
a composite view of the world as reflected in the policies of the
ISP peers.  The ISP would, in effect, pass the policy constructions
to their peers and would trust the RAdb and the RArs to present 
a rational view of the world.

The project ran in this manner from 1994 through 1996.
Tools development continued at ISI through mid 2000 (RPSL et.al.)
The NAPs, the Route Servers, and the RAdb all became commercial 

Mike what does RADB mean?

Can anyone point me to a centralized resource for Tier 1 and Tier2
providers'  accept policies?  I have found that when some of my circuits go
down various parts of the 'Net become unreachable and I attributed that to
the size of that announcement being a /24.  I assume that the carriers I'm
having issue with are not using RADB as I registered all of my netblocks,
