The U.S. Navy helicopter community will soon experience an unprecedented transformation; one that will see a massive shift in the identity of the community and in its fleet operations. In accordance with the Helicopter Master Plan (HMP), two new airframes, the SH-60R and CH-60S, will replace the existing helicopter inventory. This thesis develops the optimal way to structure the Fleet Replacement Squadrons (FRS's), specifying the location of the various FRS's and other training necessities. Four organizational options for restructuring the FRS's are considered: two separate airframe specific FRS's per coast, one combined FRS per coast, one FRS per airframe, and one single site combined FRS. Two different training plans are considered with each option. These training plans will consider whether or not to consolidate those portions of the syllabus common to both airframes. Training, maintenance, and support cost data are determined through the use of VAMOSC data and historical annual training requirements. A thorough attribute analysis of the different alternatives is performed. Using standard economic analysis techniques, multi- attribute decision theory is applied to enable a commander to choose the best option for FRS restructuring. When cost attributes are varied, the recommended alternative is to have two separate FRS's in NAS North Island, and two se arate FRS's in NAS Jacksonville/ Mayport.
