This thesis develops a methodology that is designed to aid the Coast Guard decision-maker in the determination of whether to procure a new telecommunications system or maintain a present telecommunications system. The thesis delineates the system cost factors, and the performance measures of the systems that are important for the evaluation of the two systems (present or proposed). An approach is then developed using the cost and performance information, which results in marginal benefit/marginal cost ratios. These ratios become the principal evaluation measures in a multi-criteria framework for solving the decision problem. The decision-makers preferences are solicited and integrated with the evaluation measures by employing the Analytic Hierarchy Process. The end result is a recommendation for the preferred system which is based on the correct marginal criteria and incorporates the relevant preferences and implicit trade-offs. This uses "off the shelf" software.
