dc.description.abstractComputers and computer networks are generally viewed as tools that allow personnel to increase productivity. However, due to the limitations of traditional local area networks (LANs), the navy has not been able to efficiently leverage commercial computer technology for general shipboard applications. Recent advances in wireless LANs (WLANs) now permit mobile users to employ network applications to manage and share information. Mobile computers can be used by the crew to supplement damage control reports and reduce the stain on the over-taxed voice circuits. Watchstanders can make log entries into a central data base that utilizes automated data trend analysis algorithms to detect deteriorating components and schedule maintenance to correct the problem prior to component failure. The advantages to using WLANs onboard naval vessels are nearly endless. This thesis evaluates commercially available wireless networking components for use onboard naval vessels. Installing such equipment would enable mobile watchstanders to access services provided on LANs. The theories and principles governing the operation of WLANs are discussed. Then, current commercially available components are evaluated in a laboratory setting. Finally, the most promising component evaluated is tested in the hangarbay of an aircraft carrier and throughout the inhabitable compartments of a Los Angeles class submarine.en_US
