Aligning fiscal policies with energy conservation initiatives and operational requirements is vital to achieving a positive and sustainable energy outlook for the United States Navy. The purpose of this study is to fill critical gaps in current military aviation energy conservation research. To date, such research has failed to incentivize and reward individual aviation squadrons to conserve. Commercial aviation uses collaborative decision-making (CDM) tools to minimize costs associated with aircraft delays. Embracing a lean approach to operational management, the commercial sector has refined communications between air carriers, airport operators, ground handlers, and air traffic control. This study suggests applying commercial CDM frameworks to all of Naval Aviation to increase efficiency and operational effectiveness. Specific analysis includes the impact of ground resource capacity management, airfield demand analysis (slot arrival system) and demand management cost analysis on F/A-18 Hornet squadrons.
