Abstract
This thesis is a study of the feasibility of manning the airwings of a fifteen carrier force by FY 1990. An initial review of the history of the carrier force and the composition of its airwings and the manpower requirements needed to man them was accomplished. Manpower studies were conducted of the 131X/132X designators for officers and for eleven selected enlisted aviation ratings (AD, AE, AME, AMH, AMS, AO, AQ, AT, AW, AX and PR) . Specific predictive information used included personnel attrition, retention, promotion and accession data. All of this information was processed by an APL computer program designated MANMOD, which allowed projection of manpower requirements and personnel supply data forward to the year 1990. The MANMOD model permitted estimation of the accessions and retention requirements for the officer designators and enlisted ratings chosen for study. This projection of data provided predictions on whether current-day policies will meet future billet requirements or whether changes in policies will have to be made in order to man a fifteen-carrier force. This thesis indicates serious problems in manning if present supply and requirements trends continue. The thesis also identifies other manpower problem areas.
