A proposed flight safety program for the Korean Air Force.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1981-03)
Several methodologies relevant to the development of a safety program for the Korean Air Force were reviewed. Methodologies considered included; 1) Control charts 2) System safety analysis 3) Critical incident ...
An experimental investigation of the dual chamber rocket motor
(Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1978-06)
An experimental investigation was conducted to determine the feasibility and practicality of the dual rocket motor concept. Cold flow studies were performed with the aid of a ground-test simulator which incorporated a ...
Grip pressure as a measure of task difficulty in compensatory tracking tasks
(Monterey, California : Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-09)
The feasibility of utilizing the grip pressure exerted on a rigid control stick as a measure of tracking task difficulty was investigated. A device was engineered to measure grip pressure independent of control force. ...
Factors influencing ship repair part consumption
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-09)
An investigation was made of possible linear relationships between several specific factors concerning ships of the Navy and the actual repair part consumption dollar figures for a two year period for the purpose of using ...
Swell prediction by a multiple point-source swell generation model
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-03)
A method was developed for forecasting swell using a spectral wave-generation model based on a multiple point-source concept of swell origin. The multiple point-source concept considers that the peak-energy swell emanating ...
Development and application of an analog scheme for predicting the intensification of Western North Pacific tropical cyclones
(Monterey, California : Naval Postgraduate School, 1973-03)
Various meteorological parameters were examined to determine their predictive value for forecasting intensity changes of Western North Pacific tropical cyclones using an analog forecast scheme. A number of procedures ...
Collisional de-excitation rates for the first negative and second positive systems of nitrogen by water vapor
(Monterey, California : Naval Postgraduate School, 1971-12)
Nitrogen-water vapor mixtures were excited by 1.5 MeV protons from a Van De Graaff generator. Intensity versus pressure data were recorded and plotted for the first negative transition and second positive transition in ...
An accuracy analysis of an ad hoc lower confidence limit procedure for system availability
(Monterey, California : Naval Postgraduate School, 1971-09)
Analysis of insurgent incidents in thailand (U).
(Monterey, California ; Naval Postgraduate School, 1971-03)
A general survey is made on the data collected by the Village Information System, Thailand project. Principal component analysis and principal factor analysis data reduction techniques are applied to the data for selected ...
A Game Theoretic Analysis of the Convoy-ASW Problem
(Monterey, California. U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1967-12)
The problem of allocation of ASW forces assigned to an oceanic convoy in a submarine warfare environment is postulated as a two-person game with the payoff function being based on the "formula of random search". The ...
