Communication systems requirements analysis is an essential ingredient for developing new communication systems. Unfortunately, system development groups consisting of system users, analysts, and managers have not been very effective in performing the requirements analysis. Users have been unable to communicate what they want, the technical ideas suggested by the analysts reflect their particular interests, and the managers have been unable to facilitate the interactions between the users and...

A dramatic increase in the past three years in the Indonesian defense budget, from approximately US $800 million (FY2002$) in 2002 to approximately US $2.4 billion (FY2005$) in 2005, has created the need for the Indonesian Department of Defense (DOD) and National Armed Forces (TNI) to enhance performance and accountability for effective and efficient use of state funding. It is imperative that DOD and TNI move to better inform the public and high level government officials by increasing...

Polybenzoxazole fibers (PBO, commercially trademarked as Zylon) were once used as an alternative to ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fibers in body armor systems. PBO fibers exhibit a high Young’s modulus, excellent thermal stability, and tensile strength (nearly twice that of Kevlar), but the physical properties severely degrade when exposed to water. Hydrophobic polymer coatings were applied to PBO fibers and studied for moisture resistance, coating durability, and...

As demand for hard real-time and embedded computer systems increases, a new approach to software development is critical. Software engineers and users would benefit from an automated methodology allowing validation of design specifications or functional requirements early in the development life cycle. A fast, efficient, easy-to-use tool would increase productivity and would enhance user confidence that software would be delivered at less cost and on schedule. The Computer Aided Prototyping...

The algorithm is applied to the mask level hardware design of a three micron minimum feature size p well high-speed super buffer. A software representation of the super buffer can be used for the automated design of custom Very-Large-Scale Integrated (VLSI)...

Architectural and Engineering firms are selected for government projects via a technical competition method with a fair and reasonable fee determined through negotiations The criteria for what is fair and reasonable is the government estimate. There is a limited guidance available on the preparation of estimates for A&E contracts. Additionally, there is limited use of empirical information due to the lack of an organized database. This research defined the cost estimation method as a...

The Naval Postgraduate School Information Sciences Department is executing a multi-year campaign of integrated thesis research to explore issues, and develop ideas and concepts of operations (CONOPS), related to formalizing unclassified maritime domain awareness (MDA). This is the third thesis in this campaign.

The United States government finds human trafficking to be an important subject and is placing increasing focus on the issue. The Southeast Asian portion of the Western Pacific encompasses a substantial portion of global trafficking, much of which has a final destination in the United States. This thesis asks the following question: How does trafficking in persons (TIP) affect U.S. national security interests and regional stability in Southeast Asia? To answer this question, this thesis...

An analysis was conducted of English and Spanish text. The statistical analysis determined the independent probability of letters and the joint probability of various letter combinations for large samples of each language. Various methods were tested in an attempt to utilize these characteristics to identify the language of a short sample text. By use of the joint probability of various vowel-consonant relationships and the Kolmogorov-Smirnov Goodness of Fit Test an identification system was...

An expanding interest at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, in research work on aircraft side-arm control sticks has necessitated the determination of the previous and ongoing projects involved with the development of side-arm control sticks. This paper presents a survey of the English language literature dealing with aircraft control sticks over the period of 1936 to 1971. The result of the survey is an abstracted bibliography of significant literature related to the design...

This thesis examines self-identified gang members and extremists incarcerated in Navy and Marine Corps brigs and disciplinary barracks. Information was gathered from interviews conducted with inmates. The interviews focused on several key issues, including reasons for enlisting in the Navy and Marine Corps; truthfulness with recruiters concerning certain illegal activities prior to enlistment, including juvenile arrests and convictions; the nature and severity of crimes for which members were...

The design of the aircrew workstation often has not been an orderly part of the overall aircraft design process but rather of much lower priority than the integration of the airframe and powerplant. However, the true test of the aircraft is how well the aircrew can use the aircraft for mission performance. NAVAIR has been seeking the establishment of an Aircrew Centered System Design discipline, to be addressed as an integral part of the global aircraft system design process. A baseline,...

The goal of this thesis is to analyze the effect of advanced education on the retention and promotion of Navy Surface Warfare Officers (SWO). Multivariate probit models are used to estimate the effects of education, accession sources, demographic variables, and prior service status on retention and promotion. The data set used in this study is obtained from the online Navy Econometric Modeling System (NEMS). It was constructed from annual snapshots of SWO officers in the Navy between 2000 and...

The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) course schedulers use a time-consuming manual process to assign courses, students, and professors to classrooms. The 1994 NPS Winter Quarter had approximately 535 courses, 953 student-groups, and 230 faculty members assigned to approximately 100 classrooms. This thesis formulates the NPS course timetabling problem as a mixed integer linear problem and develops a Lagrangean relaxation based heuristic to assist the schedulers. The heuristic requires...

This research explores the use of Twitter to determine if the personality characteristics of well-performing Navy personnel can be identified based on their Twitter use. Well-performing Navy personnel are identified by using the publicly-available Navy promotion lists and then those names were used to query Twitter in order to identify possible accounts belonging to these Sailors. Data from those Twitter accounts that could be positively identified as belonging to Navy personnel were then fed...
