Optimizing adversary training and the structure of the Navy adversary fleet
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-09)
Simulation of threat aircraft tactics and capabilities during training is an integral component of maintaining the combat readiness of the United States Navy. A dedicated adversary air force supports the majority of adversary ...
Optimization of USMC Hornet inventory
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2016-06)
The 2016 United States Marine Corps (USMC) Aviation Plan establishes the timeline to transition all F/A-18 Hornet squadrons to the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Ensuring Hornets can continue to support operational requirements ...
A heuristic algorithm for optimized routing of unmanned aerial systems for the interdiction of improvised explosive devices
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2008-06)
Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) are effective weapons for insurgents targeting conventional military and security forces. Real-time information gathering about likely use of such weapons is one approach to reduce the ...
Air asset to mission assignment for dynamic high-threat environments in real-time
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2015-03)
This thesis develops pre-processing algorithms and a mixed integer programming model that solves the route selection and asset-to-mission assignment problem in the presence of threat air-defense systems. Our model and ...
Heterogeneous defensive naval weapon assignment to swarming threats in real-time
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2016-03)
This thesis develops an automated decision aid capable of generating defensive engagement profiles for use in naval shipboard defense. It allows the efficient pairing of multiple defensive weapon systems to several incoming ...
Navy mission planner
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2007-09)
The United States Navy continually deals with the challenges involved with the assignment of limited resources to address numerous and dispersed critical missions. The Navy's continued pursuit of decision aids to answer ...
Strike package-target pairing real-time optimization for Airborne Battlespace Command and Control
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2010-09)
When an air strike is requested against a target, the desired result is rapid arrival of a strike package of appropriately armed aircraft to destroy the target. However, the current manual system used by airborne battle ...
Optimizing systems of threshold detection sensors
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2008-03)
When implementing a system of sensors, one of the biggest challenges is to establish a threshold at which a signal is generated. All signals that exceed this detection threshold are then investigated to determine whether ...
Game-Theoretic Anti-Submarine Warfare Mission Planner (heuristic-based, fully Excel capable)
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2009-09)
This thesis introduces a Game-Theoretic Anti-Submarine Warfare Mission Planner (G-TAMP) that can quickly operate on a Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) computer without any software other than NMCI-standard Microsoft ...
Assessing vulnerabilities in interdependent infrastructures using attacker-defender models
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2011-09)
Our economic and social welfare depend on certain "critical" infrastructures and key resources. Protecting these infrastructures is a challenge because they are complex, and as systems they are difficult to understand, ...
