Advanced Undersea Warfare Systems
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2011-06); NPS-SE-11-004
Over the next twenty years, the proliferation of threats in the undersea environment will likely challenge the platform-centric model that the United States Navy uses to maintain dominance in Undersea Warfare (USW). ...
Adapting industry practices for a Trusted COP supporting agile command and control in Fleet Battle Management
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2010-12); NPS-SE-10-010
Navy leadership has articulated interest in understanding game changing technologies that permit employment of network centric (versus platform centric) battle management. To explore this problem statement, the project ...
Roving UAV IED interdiction system
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2011-03); NPS-SE-11-002
In support of the Naval Postgraduate School's Systems Engineering Capstone, a project team was formed from Cohort 311-093A to perform an analysis on the possibility of utilizing Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) in campaign ...
Proposed interoperability readiness level assessment for mission critical interfaces during Navy acquisition
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2010-12); NPS-SE-10-008
The current Department of the Navy (DoN) system development and acquisition system has documented instances of programs failing to detect critical interoperability failures prior to operational level testing. The authors ...
An analysis of sensor data path as a "game changer" at the operational level of war
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2010); NPS-SE-10-009
This project describes a Systems Engineering approach to validate that variation of the sensor data path at the Operational Level of War (OLW) represents a "game changing" concept to improve Fleet Battle Management through ...
Investigation of the potential material solution for utilizing an unmanned aerial system to protect off-shore oil platforms from surface threats
(Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2010-09); NPS-SE-10-005
