Classifying vessels operating in the South China Sea by origin with the Automatic Identification System
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2018-03)
This research focuses on building classification models with multinomial responses based upon seven months of Automatic Identification System (AIS) data gathered from the South China Sea. The models, built using Gradient ...
Evaluation of factors on the patterns of ship movement and predictability of future ship location in the Gulf of Mexico
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2017-03)
In this thesis, we examine techniques used to predict future ship movement using historical Automatic Identification System (AIS) data in the Gulf of Mexico from April 2014. We process the data to remove outliers and ...
Projecting Navy officer inventory with data farming
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2015-09)
The Officer Strategic Analysis Model (OSAM) is a powerful entity-based, time-stepped simulation model that takes into account actual officer inventory and allows the application of several types of annual personnel plans ...
Optimization of influenza antiviral response in Texas
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2015-03)
Influenza pandemics pose a serious threat to the global population. According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services in 2014, the Spanish flu of 1918 killed almost 100 million people worldwide and ...
Estimating production cost while linking combat systems and ship design
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2012-12)
In a Naval International Cooperative Opportunities in Science & Technology Program (NICOP) initiative, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) is investigating whether an emphasis on the utilization of computer simulation and ...
Using discrete event simulation to assess obstacle location accuracy in the REMUS unmanned underwater vehicle
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2004-06)
is shown to follow an exponential distribution. These three models enable operators to explore the impact of various inputs prior to programming the vehicle, thus allowing them to choose the best combination of vehicle ...
Modeling how individual entities react to indirect fire
(Monterey California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2004-06)
Current Army models and simulations provide limited representation of the actions and behaviors of the individual combatant (Soldier, Sailor, Marine, or Airman). As the Army transforms into the Future Force, more emphasis ...
A force structure design model.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1991-09)
This thesis describes a systematic force structure design methodology that uses force effectiveness, risk, and cost to design and compare force structures. The requirements for military force are determined by predicting ...
A carrier deployment model
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 1990-09)
Aircraft carriers are and will continue to be highly important to the United States as she safeguards her interests globally. Today's budget environment, however, demands efficient use of these carrier assets in meeting ...
A Markov model for measuring artillery fire support effectiveness
This thesis presents a Markov model, which, given an indirect fire weapon system's parameters, yields measures of the weapon's effectiveness in providing fire support to a maneuver element. These parameters may be determined ...
