Interactions between synoptic and planetary scales of motion
The effects of synoptic waves on the dynamics of planetary waves are investigated using normal mode analysis. Initialized analyses of the Navy Operational Global Atmospheric Prediction System (NOGAPS) for 19 days between ...
Numerical investigation of orographically enhanced instability
The NEPRF spectral baroclinic primitive equation with six layers was numerically integrated over time to examine the effects that vertical wind profiles have on the development of lee cyclogenesis. In addition, the model ...
Automated satellite cloud analysis: a multispectral approach to the problem of snow/cloud discrimination
An algorithm is developed and evaluated for discriminating among clouds, snow cover and clear land. The multispectral technique uses daytime images of AVHRR channels 1 (0.63^m). 3 (3.7jim) and 4 (11.0[im). Reflectance ...
The analysis of societal warfare
This thesis develops an adaptive structure for analyzing problems involving sociotechnical systems in the context of societal warfare. The structure, called the Modular Analysis Process (MAP), has been designed to help ...
Application of the modular Command and Control Evaluation Structure to a Strategic Defense Initiative command and control system
This thesis will focus on relating a generic evaluation structure, the Modular Command and Control Evaluation Structure (MCES) to the battle management (B\Ml) and command, control and communication (C3) issues of the ...
Attributes of a tactical airborne reconnaissance collection model for the Airland Research Model (ALARM).
The objective of this thesis is to determine the form of inputs to a reconnaissance information collection module and to state attributes of a perception database generated by the resulting information-seeking activities. ...
A data base design for a multimedia C2 workstation in support of RESA
This thesis supports the Naval Postgraduate School's (NPS) program to develop a multimedia (text, voice, graphics) command and control (C2) workstation as a Decision Support System to aid players of the Research, Evaluation, ...
The development of visual interface enhancements for player input to the JTLS wargame
This thesis examines the design and development of a desktop prototype of a computer wargame. The prototype specifically deals with the ability to format the Joint Theater-Level Simulation's Model Interface Program (MIP) ...
Examining the reliability of a hand geometry identity verification device for use in access control
Controlling the access to secure government facilities has become increasingly important as these systems are entrusted with more sensitive applications. Unauthorized access could be very detrimental to our nation's ...
On terrorism: an analysis of terrorism as a form of warfare.
This thesis examines the proposition that terrorism is a form of war. To do this, this paper first analyzes warfare in terms of what it is and how it functions. This is done by surveying classical military thinkers such ...
