Efficient orchestration of data centers via comprehensive and application-aware trade-off exploration
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2016-12)
Software-defined network (SDN) orchestration, the problem of integrating and deploying multiple network control functions (NCFs) while minimizing suboptimal network states that can result from competing NCF proposals, is ...
Enhancements and extensions of formal models for risk assessment in software projects
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2002-09)
The Modified Risk Model is a macro model developed to aid program managers in effectively planning the required effort to deliver software products. The model projects the probability of completing a software project, ...
A computational model and multi-agent simulation for information assurance
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School., 2002-06)
This dissertation introduces a computational model of IA called the Social-Technical Information Assurance Model (STIAM). STIAM models organizations, information infrastructures, and human actors as a complex adaptive ...
Auditory-visual cross-modal perception phenomena
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1998-09-01)
The quality of realism in virtual environments is typically considered to be a function of visual and audio fidelity mutually exclusive of each other. However, the virtual environment participant, being human, is multi- ...
The Rational Behavior Model: a multi-paradigm, tri-level software architecture for the control of autonomous vehicles
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1993-03)
There is currently a very strong interest among researchers in the fields of artificial intelligence and robotics in finding more effective means of linking high level symbolic computations relating to mission planning and ...
A stochastic approach to path planning in the Weighted-Region Problem
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1991-03)
Planning efficient long-range movement is a fundamental requirement of most military operations. Intelligent mobile autonomous vehicles designed for battlefield support missions must have this capability. We propose an ...
Construction of optimal-path maps for homogeneous-cost-region path-planning problems.
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1989-09)
Fast path-planning algorithms are needed for autonomous vehicles and tactical terrain-analysis tools. We explore a new approach using "optimal-path maps", that give the best path to a goal point from any given start point ...
