An analysis of an auto-alert sonobuoy detection model
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1988-03)
This thesis presents a method for estimating some parameter values that are involved in the design of a passive broadband auto-alert sonobuoy. The importance of establishing a false alarm rate that is compatible with ...
An analysis of Naval Officer student academic performance in the Operations Analysis curriculum in relationship to academic profile codes and other factors
(Naval Postgraduate School: Monterey, California., 1985-09)
The ability to forecast the academic performance of Naval Officer students in the Operations Analysis curriculum is an issue of importance to the Navy. In the interest of cost effectiveness and achieving the required ...
FASTS: a radar simulation model for the development and analysis of aircraft anti-ship tactics.
This thesis describes an interactive computer program that was developed by the author. The program which is called FASTS simulates a many-on-many war-at-sea scenario involving ship based early warning radars, strike ...
Locally-Weighted-Regression Scatter-Plot Smoothing (LOWESS) : a graphical exploratory data analysis technique.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1984-09)
Statisticians have long used moving average type smoothing and classical regression analysis techniques to reduce the variability in data sets and enhance the visual information presented by scatterplots. This thesis ...
MASK: a tactical aid for planning air strikes against radar defended land targets.
This thesis presents an interactive computer program called MASK which generates radar and optical line-of-sight coverage envelopes based on terrain masking and refractive propagation effects. MASK is designed primarily ...
A comparison of two extended Kalman filter algorithms for air-to-air passive ranging.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1983-09)
Two Extended Kalman Filter algorithms for air-to-air passive ranging are proposed, and examined by computer simulation. One algorithm uses only bearing observations while the other uses both bearing and elevation angles. ...
