Verification and Validation of the Satellite Marine-layer/Elevated Duct Height (SMDH) Technique
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2000-12); NPS-MR-01-001
The evaluation of the NAWC Point Mugu Satellite Marine-layer/Elevated Duct Height (SMDH) technique (also called IR-Duct) has been conducted using in situ rawinsonde, seasurface temperature (SST) and polar orbiter AVHRR ...
The Enemy’s Access Denial System: Potential Competitor Exploitation of U. S. Military Vulnerabilities.
(Monterey, California: Institute for Joint Warfare Analysis, Naval Postgraduate School, 2000-12); NPS-JW-01-014
As part of an experimental approach to “red teaming” that is studying the problem of enemy access denial systems, the author performed a detailed investigation of the vulnerabilities of the U. S. military’s power projection ...
Data integrity limitations in hybrid security architectures
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2000-12); NPS-CS-00-008
We discuss a class of computer/network architectures that supports multilevel security and commercial applications, while utilizing primarily commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) workstations, operating systems and hardware ...
Determining onboard capacity for the initial skill training
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School,, 2000-11); NPS-OR-01-003
Free Electron Laser material damage studies
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2000-11); NPS-PH-01-001
Today's surface ships are faced with an increased vulnerability to anti-ship cruise missiles, due to a change from operating in open oceans to primarily operating in the world's littorals. One possible solution to counter ...
Joint interoperability of theater missile defense systems extending the scope of testing
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2000-10-01); NPS-OR-01-001
Assuring the interoperability of a theater missile defense (TMD) family of systems (FoS) is a challenging problem with many different facets. Under a concept of interoperability that is based on competition among interfacing ...
Mine Burial Impact Prediction Experiment
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2000-09); NPS-IJWA-01-007
Mine Impact Burial Experiment (MIBEX) was conducted at Monterey Bay on May 23, 2000 using a simulated mine. During the experiment, we carefully observe mine track and mine burial depth while simultaneously take gravity ...
Probability models for sequential-stage system reliability growth via failure mode removal
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2000-09-01); NPS-OR-00-006
Many systems, composed of hardware, software, and combinations thereof function in sequential stages: each subsystem (stage) must operate correctly in order for the next to be challenged. All stages, including the interfaces ...
