Innovations in computer generated autonomy at the MOVES Institute
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2001-12); NPS-MV-02-002
The MOVES Institute's Computer-Generated Autonomy Group has focused on a research goal ofmodeling intensely complex and adaptive behavior while at the same time making the behavior far easier to create and control. This ...
"SEA SWAT" a littoral combat ship for Sea Base Defense
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2001-12)
Unlike past conflicts which were characterized by major naval battles in the open ocean, present day threats are mostly associated with rogue nations and terrorist cells. These threats are of a different nature to past ...
Economic Impact of Naval Forward Presence: Benefits, Linkage and Future Prospects as Modified by Trends in Globalization
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2001-12); NPS-NS-02-001
The study extends the analysis of the economic benefits of naval forward presence undertaken by the Naval Postgraduate School in two previous studies: QDR97 and FY 2000. The first of those studies developed an operational ...
JOIST (Joint Optimizing Informational Strike Tool)
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2001-11-01); NPS-OR-02-001PR
JOIST is a prototype computer program that deals with the optimal tasking of both strike and information assets in a protracted war. Phenomena modeled include damage assessment, surveillance, and target tracking. The ...
Pulse Propagation and Bistatic Scattering
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2001-10-26); NPS-EC-02-001
A set of pulse-propagation coupling equations is derived. They couple the output electrical signal at a point element in a receive array to the transmitted electrical signal at the input to a transmit array via the complex ...
Helicopter payload phase 1 antenna study
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2001-10); NPS-EC-01-008
This study examines the performance of a communications antenna at various locations on an unmanned helicopter. The suitability of a location is determined by the quality of the antenna pattern, primarily field of view, ...
Support of JCATS limited V&V
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2001-09); NPS-MA-01-001
The goal of this study effort was to assess the ability of the Joint Conflict and Tactical Simulation (JCATS) to simulate the capabilities of non- lethal weapons (NLW) and to provide a product that can be incorporated into ...
Stochastic models for promoting and testing system reliability evolution
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2001-09-01); NPS-OR-01-011
Many systems and systems-of-systems function in sequential-stage fashion, and are constantly on when operative, but are failure-susceptible. Communication systems, power generation and transmission, and vehicular transportation ...
Military stochastic scheduling treated as a "multi-armed bandit" problem
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2001-09-01); NPS-OR-01-010
A Blue airborne force attacks a region defended by a single Red surface-to-air missile system (SAM). Red is uncertain about the Blues he faces, but is able to learn about them during the engagement. Red's objective is to ...
System engineering and evolution decision support, Final Progress Report (05/01/1998 - 09-30-2001)
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2001-09); NPS-SW-01-003
The objective of our effort is to develop a scientific basis for system engineering automation and decision support. This objective addresses the long term goals of increasing the quality of service provided complex systems ...
