Parallel version of special perturbations orbit propagator
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1998-12-09); NPS-MA-98-003
Parallelization can be achieved by either control or domain decomposition. The latter was tried for analytic and semianalytic propagators. Neal and Coffey discuss the domain decomposition for special perturbations. ...
Factors that Create Learner Engagement in Network-Based Instruction
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1998-11); NPS-SM-98-003
This research analyzes the design characteristics and organizational systems factors that should be addressed by program managers in the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED) for the development of network-based ...

The Military Applications of MEO and ICO Commercial Satellite Systems
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1998-09-15); NPS-EC-09-003
At the dawn of the 21st century several low and medium earth orbit commercial satellite constellations will be operational and they will be able to provide high bandwidth global communications in voice, data, and multimedia ...
The Maritime Preposition Force Ship 2010
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1998-09-15); NPS-EC-98-014
A systems engineering approach to the design of a ship which will satisfy the requirements for a Maritime Prepositioning Force (MPF) for the year 2010 and beyond is presented. This ship, the MPF 2010, will provide the means ...
Southern Hemisphere Application of the Systematic Approach to Tropical Cyclone Track Forecasting. Part II: Climatology and Refinement of Meteorological Knowledge Base
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1998-09); NPS-MR-98-004
The preliminary adaptation by Bannister et al. (1997) of the Systematic Approach to tropical cyclone (TC) track forecasting meteorological knowledge base to the Southern Hemisphere has been extended to eight seasons (1990-91 ...
Development of a shell element with pressure variation through the thickness. Part II
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1998-09); NPS-ME-98-005
A shell formulation was developed from a three dimensional solid. The shell element is isoparametric and has four corner nodes at which there are three independent displacements and three independent rotations. The element ...
T-matrix Approach to Array Modeling
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1998-09); NPS-UW-98-001
The so-called T-matrix formulation for transducer array calculations is described from a theoretical standpoint. The methodology is then applied to an array problem whose solution can be found analytically, thereby ...
Report of the Office of Naval Research Phase II International Workshop on Shallow-Water Acoustics, Seattle, June 27, 1998
