Cost-benefit Analysis (CBA) of the Total Integrated Engine Revitalization (TIGER) Condition-based Overhaul (CBO) Process for the M1 Abrams AGT 1500 Turbine Engine at the Army Depot Level of Maintenance
The M1 Abrams is one of the finest land combat vehicles in history and has been the backbone of our nation''s ground combat strategy since its introduction in the 1980s. Initially intended to be in service until 2027, the ...
Prediction Markets: A Review with an Experimentally Based Recommendation for Navy Force-shaping Application
Prediction markets generally are small-scale electronic markets that tie payoffs to measurable future events. They are similar to stock markets, in which the ''stocks'' are outcomes or events rather than shares in a company. ...
Cost-benefit Analysis of the Department of the Navy Transition from C-9 Aircraft to C-40 Aircraft for Logistic Support Operations
The Navy began transitioning from the aging C-9s, which peaked at a total fleet size of 27 C-9B/DC-9 aircraft, to the C-40A. However, in response to increasing defense budget scrutiny and competing priorities, the Navy ...
Effects of OEF/OIF deployment intensity on PTSD diagnoses among still active population: analysis of enlisted and officer populations 2001-2006
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2009-12); NPS-GSBPP-09-034
This study estimates the effect of deployment location and length on the risk of being diagnosed with PTSD, relative to what it would be from the normal military operations; and examines the comorbidity distribution within ...
System Architecture for Anti-Ship Ballistic Missile Defense (ASBMD)
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2009-12); NPS-SE-09-014
