dc.description.abstractThe U.S. Marine Corps is the nation’s expeditionary military force. The Marines will often move into forward areas with little or no support. Through the installation and use of expeditionary airfields, they can provide support to its Marine Corps and Joint Force aviation operations. An airfield lighting system is a critical part of an airfield. The Marines’ current airfield lighting system is facing obsolescence issues and needs to be replaced. This thesis analyzes the factors that influence the architecture of a new airfield lighting system. The Federal Aviation Administration publishes guidance for commercial airfield lighting that will affect what will be required in a new system. This thesis examines how the Marines use night vision devices for covert operations and how that will affect the architecture. Discussions on obsolescence and maintenance issues are provided. Following examination of all of the influences on architecture, this thesis provides an analysis on the different lighting options and determines which combination of lights and features offers the best solution for Marine needs. A final recommendation on a new expeditionary airfield lighting system is made.en_US
