Advanced research into moving target imaging using multistatic radar
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2009-12)
Current active imaging algorithms for moving targets suffer from issues of incorrect positions (spatial) and streaking artifacts (temporal). Using the Cheney/Borden procedure, we investigated combining the spatial, temporal, ...
Design and simulation of a nano-satellite attitude determination system
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2009-12)
Earth imaging satellites have typically been large systems with highly accurate and expensive sensors. With the recent push for Operationally Responsive Space, Earth imaging has potentially achievable with small and ...
Analysis of a man-in-the-middle attack on the Diffie-Hellman key exchange protocol
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2009-09)
The ability to distribute cryptographic keys securely has been a challenge for centuries. The Diffie-Hellman key exchange protocol was the first practical solution to the key exchange dilemma. The Diffie-Hellman protocol ...
The joint effects-based contracting execution system: a proposed enabling concept for future joint expeditionary contracting execution
(Monterey, California, Naval Postgraduate School, 2008-12)
This purpose of this Master's of Business Administration Professional Report is to deliver an enabling concept future joint expeditionary contracting execution. The Commanding General of the Joint Contracting Vommand-Ir ...
The untold story of Mexico's rise and eventual monopoly of the methamphetamine trade
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2008-06)
The purpose of this thesis is to tell the untold story of the ascendance of Mexican DTOs over the production and distribution of methamphetamine. By adding this dimension to a story that has typically focused on the role ...
Demonstration of lightweight engineering solutions for a low-cost safe explosive ordnance destruct tool
(Monterey California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2007-12)
The continued development of a low-cost and safe method for neutralizing explosive threats is reported. The concept depends on the use of pure nitromethane in a totally encased lightweight plastic shaped charge, and the ...
Analysis of required supporting systems for the Supercritical CO2 power conversion system
(Cambridge Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007-09)
Recently, attention has been drawn to the viability of using S-CO(2) as a working fluid in modern reactor designs. Near the critical point, CO2 has a rapid rise in density allowing a significant reduction in the compressor ...
A conceptual framework for the U.S. Army tactical wheeled vehicle optimization model
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2007-06)
This thesis addresses the problem of optimizing the U.S. Army's Light Tactical Wheeled Vehicle (LTWV) fleet over the next 15 years. To achieve these ends we created a multiple objective decision analysis (MODA) model which ...
Statistics of amplitude and fluid velocity of large and rare waves in the ocean
The understanding of large and rare waves in the ocean is becoming more important as these rare events are turning into more common observances. In order to design a marine structure or vehicle to withstand such a potentially ...
Modeling fluid flow by exploring different flow geometries and effect of weak compressibility
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2006-06)
Atmospheric mixing is a problem of exceptional importance and difficult to study. The anelastic approximation is the accepted fluid system governing the atmosphere over large vertical scales (about 8 km). The anelastic ...
