The visioceilometer and its tactical applications
This thesis investigates the tactical applicability of the visioceilometer in terms of its ability to measure visual range and to identify the density level of an obscurant. This is accomplished by analyzing test ...
Comparison of test site and overseas deployment site intervisibility characteristics
Intervisibility characteristics are critical to ground combat forces in shaping results of U.S. Army operational tests. An important question is: Are the results of a test conducted at a specific test site valid for a ...
Modelling arms transfers: an application of KSIM cross impact analysis.
The arms transfer process is modeled using KSIM, an enhanced version of cross impact analysis. The cross impact technique of forecasting is developed from its origin in the Delphi procedure through several of the key ...
Deployment planning: a linear programming model with variable reduction
The United States Armed Forces must be capable of deploying to areas of operations anywhere is the world. Planning for these deployments is the responsibility of the Joint Deployment Agency, MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa, ...
Strategic allocation of sealift: a GAMS-Based Integer programming approach.
This study develops a prototype model which can be used to allocate strategic sealift resources in crisis deployments. The first part of the model is a GAMS-Based Integer Program that extends a classic network flow ...
A prototype decision support system for Marine Corps officer allocation policy analysis.
This thesis presents the prototype for a decision support system which permits repeated formulation and solution of the Marine Corps staffing allocation problem under various user-controlled policy scenarios. The system ...
A personnel flow model for predicting the Coast Guard enlisted force structure
The U.S. Coast Guard is a military service with a hierarchical organization. CG manpower planning requires a forecast of the number of accessions needed as well as the resulting force structure for each month of the ...
Practical applicability of exact and approximate forms of the randomization test for two independent samples.
The practical applicability of randomization tests is discussed. The randomization test for two independent samples is the specific test examined in both hypothesis and significance testing contexts. This test has optimum ...
Bayesian solutions to a 2 x 2 decision matrix using interval scaled payoffs with an application to foreign policy decisions.
Statistical Design Theory is applied to assessing objectively the uncertainty involved in foreign policy decisions. In an international conflict of insterest situation, a protagionist is going to pursue. This problem is ...
Application of the analysis phase of the Instructional System Development to the MK-105 magnetic minesweeping mission of the MH-53E helicopter
With the introduction of the MH-53E helicopter as a platform for airborne mine countermeasures, a new cockpit flight simulator has been proposed. This simulator, device 2F141, will provide the U.S. Navy with the capability ...
