    Bento Box—Modular/Recoverable Stratospheric Balloon Capabilities to Support Distributed Maritime Operations
    (Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2022) Lan, Wenschel D.; Savattone, James A.; Phelps, Ronald L.; Naval Research Program (NRP); Naval Research Program (NRP); Space Systems Academic Group (SSAG); Space Systems Academic Group (SSAG)
    Chief of Naval Operations, ADM Gilday, and Commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen Berger, directed modernization efforts across the Naval Services. The concept of Naval Operational Architecture (NOA) enables the development of additional beyond-line-of-sight (BLOS) targeting and fires delivered from widely distributed points within and outside a near-peer's weapons engagement zones (WEZ). Research into proliferated low-earth orbiting communications satellites (pLEO) reveal an intersection with the Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) priority and the Navy and Marine components leveraging efforts such as Task Force Overmatch (DEVSECOPS). There is an immediate need to develop requirements and analyze alternate architectures for delivering BLOS precision fires in future contested environments in the context of Great Power Competition. Faculty experience with space mission architecture design will be leveraged to advise students in achieving the following objectives: 1) Research and develop operational, functional objective and threshold requirements for a proliferated LEO systems within the JADC2 framework to enable BLOS precision fires. 2) Analyze alternative architectures for the requirements which enable BLOS precision fires in a contested environment. A phased approach will be used to meet the research objectives. First, a capabilities or system requirements-like document will be generated to include validation criteria and in-phase lessons learned. Second, standard aerospace modeling/simulation techniques will be used to define the mission and architecture requirements and analyze the alternatives for architectures enabling BLOS precision fires through a contested environment to include in-phase lessons learned. Third, individual student thesis research will occur to completion/graduation of the students and any final closing actions through the remainder of the project period.

    Culture Change and Modernizing Navy Logistics
    (Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2018-04) Higgins, Susan; Gallenson, Ann; Naval Research Program (NRP); Naval Research Program; Information Sciences (IS); GSOIS
    Project Summary: This project considers how to accelerate culture change within Navy logistics organizations in step with the continuing modernization efforts. Our findings integrate previous culture change research with updated reviews of literature, discussions with logistics leaders and key stakeholders. Additionally, we are designing the capacity for extending the socialization of modernization concepts through "design sprints" that enable us to gather inputs from a diverse population of key stakeholders and outputs from personnel within the logistics community. The final report includes the capacity designed and the results of early events. As the Navy Logistics community reforms and modernizes its technologies, processes, and organizations; leaders recognize that change is dependent not on their actions alone but on the organizational culture, which can enhance or impede adoption. Culture arises as a shared understanding of current and future pressures. It changes by adapting to external and internal forces (Schein, 1985). Initially, people often resist change. The Navy's bureaucratic systems are designed for stability, not agility; reliability rather than responsiveness. By increasing the agility of its organizations and leaders, the logistics community will be able to better respond to its customers, naval and joint warfighters, who operate in turbulent environments across a spectrum of combat to humanitarian missions. The ultimate goal is to increase the lethality of naval and joint warfighters.

    Transportation Analysis Exploring Alternative Shipping of Marine Exploring Alternative Shipping of Marine Expeditionary Brigade Forces to Seabase in Contingency Response Scenarios (JON: W6A09)
    (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2015) Bourgeois, Eugene P. Paulo (PI) Paul; Kelly, Bradley; Petrusky, John; Williamson, John; Authors, Jonathan Yi (Student; Engineering, Systems; GSEAS),; Naval Research Program (NRP); Naval Research Program
    This capstone report supports the needs of two United States Marine Corps Sponsors: Marine Forces Pacific (MARFORPAC) and the Marine Corps Expeditionary Energy Office (E2O). Marine Forces Pacific approached the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) to provide a capability to model deployment scenarios and perform trade-off analysis between naval, maritime and commercial shipping based upon expediency of expeditionary forces arriving at a designated seabase. Expeditionary Energy Office approached NPS to provide a capability to predict energy consumption of the Marine Expeditionary Force in support of reducing dependency on fossil fuels in a deployed environment. The needs of these two independent sponsors were combined based on planning guidance from the 35th and 36th Commandants of the Marine Corps (CMC) emphasizing the need to reduce fuel consumption during Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) operations and identify alternative shipping to augment the Navy’s 33 ship amphibious force (Amos 2010; Dunford 2015). Based on the CMC planning guidance and the sponsors capability needs specific research questions were established to frame the scope of research to the assessment and selection of fuel efficient alternative shipping sufficient to transport Marines and their equipment from home port to seabase during a range of military operations.
