This Systems Engineering and Analysis Cohort 12 (SEA-12) report applies a systems engineering process to the largely qualitative Global Fleet Station (GFS) Concept, and its role in ensuring stability in the regions of the world. We apply a slightly modified JCIDS process, with a focus on providing "value-based" results. A regional focus on the Gulf of Guinea is selected. Measures are derived in the form of attributes -- or specific capabilities -- desired of GFS based on the needs and issues of the region. Vessels from the Navy's current inventory are evaluated for their performance and cost, and two, an LPD and HSV, are selected as the most cost-effective proposals for employment as a GFS in the Gulf of Guinea in 2012. Other solutions are evaluated as well: a future-concept ship, improvements to existing platform alternatives, and considerations for improving integration and interaction with agencies outside the Department of the Navy.
Includes supplementary material.
