The United States Navy is experiencing a change in ship operations due to widespread interest in accessing the web and Internet. Security is a key concern. Communications technology may improve operations, reduce manning while not impacting readiness, increase the effectiveness of smaller crews, and enable more efficient handling of fires and other emergencies. This thesis explored the means of integrating operations, crew, and technology in the context of a ship by modeling and evaluating a model of integration for businesses, consumers, and the Internet, in the context of a city. As with Internet usage in civilian circumstances, naval personnel on deployment desire and use access to the Internet and the web. This thesis provides insights into the integration of the Internet, urban centers, and people through a system of systems perspective. This research established the boundaries of each system; identified the interactions needed to integrate the three components; and addressed how this integration may be achieved. The findings provide researchers and organizations a model for investigating measures of effectiveness for linking business models with customers and offers insights into possible future ship operations.
