Humanitarian Assistance Shelter System (HASS)
MetadataShow full item record
As part of a Naval Postgraduate School's capstone project in Systems Engineering, the project team from Cohort 311-101O of the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), performed a Systems Engineering analysis and verified the analysis with the acquisition and partial testing of the Humanitarian Assistance Shelter System (HASS). The HASS was developed in response to a need for a rapidly deployable mid-term shelter solution for disaster victims. There exists immediate shelter solutions for the victims, yet there is no transitional shelter available for the period between the demise of the immediate shelter and acquisition of permanent housing. For example, the displaced Haiti earthquake victims are still living in tents more than a year after the disaster has struck. This report documents the disciplined Systems Engineering approach used to determine the requirements, trade-offs, cost-effective solution, and testing required of the solution to fulfill the HASS stakeholders needs. Due to time constraint, partial testing on the HASS components was done with findings documented as well as recommendation for further testing and future work.
