I would like thank Professor Jeff Paduan for his exceptional guidance and mentorship throughout this long journey. In addition, I would like to thank Mike Cook for his patience and assistance with helping me understand MATLAB code generation and insight into the CODAR system. To Professor Mary Batteen for being a second reader and helping me get settled into the graduate school grind. To Fred Bahr for taking his time to help me with various MATLAB programming issues and sharing his office space to do this research. I would also like to thank LT Dave Hudson, LT Sarah Height, LT Adam Thomas, and LT Jason Barrett for helping me through the NPS syllabus and for being lunch pals throughout the week. To my parents, Rachel and Richard, for giving me encouragement and support growing up in order for me to make it into my twenties and ready for the real world. Finally, I would like to thank my wife, Arnheidur, and my two children Embla and Ellert for the support that they have given me during my Navy career and especially these last two years. I spent way too many weekends away from you than I would have liked and appreciate your patience.
