Advanced Sea Base Enabler (ASE) Capstone Design Project
MetadataShow full item record
As part of a Naval Postgraduate School's capstone project in Systems Engineering, a project team from cohort 311-081 performed a Systems Engineering analysis of an Advanced Sea Base Enabler (ASE). For a sea base to be truly beneficial a capability must exist that supports efficiently transporting needed materiel from the sea base to the desired debarkation point. The capability must support peace-time, non-combat operations' and war-time, combat operations' logistics and support needs. The solution must be cost effective and capable of operating under all environmental conditions, including sea states, under which necessary military operations are expected to take place and must support a transport rate sufficient to ensure materiel is delivered within operational time requirements. The proposed ASE is intended to fully enable the potential of the sea base. The bulk of effort by the team was on collection, analysis and validation of operational requirements, functional analysis based on the operational requirements, consideration of possible alternatives compared to the collected requirements, prioritizing the alternatives based on stakeholder priorities and selection and documentation of a preferred alternative. Addtionally, the team conducted cost analysis and risk analysis, as well as a limited simulation study.
