An implicit model development process for bounding external, seemingly intangible/non-quantifiable factors
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2017-06)
This research expands the modeling and simulation (M&S) body of knowledge through the development of an Implicit Model Development Process (IMDP). When augmented to traditional Model Development Processes (MDP), the IMDP ...
Automated battle planning for combat models with maneuver and fire support
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2017-03)
Production combat models and simulations do not have an automated planning capability for multiple units in a command structure, and they lack tools for forward reasoning about effects such as suppression by firepower. ...
Hybrid high-fidelity modeling of radar scenarios using atemporal, discrete-event, and time-step simulation
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2016-12)
Many simulation scenarios attempt to seek a balance between model fidelity and computational efficiency. Unfortunately, scenario realism and model level of detail are often reduced or eliminated due to the complexity of ...
Improved conceptual models methodology (ICoMM) for validation of non-observable systems
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2015-12)
This dissertation expands the current view of development and validation of conceptual models (CoM) of non-observable systems (NOSs) by using systems engineering (SE) and systems architecture (SA) methods during the model ...
Identifying the limits of an integrated training environment using human abilities and affordance theory
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2014-06)
This research investigated the development and use of an analytical assessment methodology anchored in systems engineering principles, affordance theory, and human abilities, to measure the potential of integrated training ...
Development of a locomotion interface for portable virtual environment systems using an inertial/magnetic sensor-based system and a ranging measurement system
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2014-03)
This dissertation describes the development of an integrated locomotion interface for building self-contained, portable, and immersive virtual environment (VE) systems. Such VE systems do not rely on any infrastructure ...
Hybrid architectural framework for C4ISR and Discrete-Event Simulation (DES) to support sensor-driven model synthesis in real-world scenarios
(Monterey California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-09)
While the application of a time-step approach in modeling C4ISR in Missile Defense Warfare (MDW) suffers inaccurate time estimation and relative slow speed, Discrete Event Simulation (DES) can elegantly satisfy these ...
The Effect of Mild Motion Sickness and Sopite Syndrome on Multitasking Cognitive Performance
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-03)
This research investigated the effects of mild motion sickness and sopite syndrome on multitasking cognitive performance. Fifty-one healthy individuals (45 males, 6 females) were recruited in three data collection periods ...
Learning from Noisy and Delayed Rewards The Value of Reinforcement Learning to Defense Modeling and Simulation
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2012-09)
Modeling and simulation of military operations requires human behavior models capable of learning from experi-ence in complex environments where feedback on action quality is noisy and delayed. This research examines the ...
A discourse in human systems integration
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2010-09)
This dissertation tackles, head on, two fundamental questions: What is human systems integration (HSI) and how should one think about HSI problems? The objective was to develop a coherent systems method to improve the ...
