The purpose of this research project was to provide an evaluation of whether the V-22 Osprey is the best choice of aircraft to meet the Marine Corps' medium-lift assault support needs. The goal of this project was to base the evaluation on unbiased research using methods and techniques learned in the Naval Postgraduate School's MBA core curriculum. The evaluation is based on analysis of the V-22 Osprey and the EH-101 helicopter using net present value (NPV) of procurement cost, measures of overall effectiveness (MOE) for how each aircraft meets defined Marine Corps objectives, and a computer simulation to predict how each aircraft will perform given the same scenario. When considered together, the NPV, MOE, and computer simulation provide a comprehensive evaluation of whether the V-22 is truly the "best" aircraft to meet the Marine Corps' medium-lift needs.
