The United States Army obtained congressional approval in 1995 to close or realign 40 installations. These actions create a unique opportunity for the civilian communities surrounding the installations to reuse them to satisfy commercial or community needs. However, future reuse can be impeded by the need for environmental clean-up, which is an expensive business. The current clean-up cost estimate for 32 of the 40 installations is $1 billion from 1996 to 2001. This thesis develops an...

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...

Culture is a human concept central to the existence of societies. Perceptions of an organization’s culture are based on individual thought coalescing into group consensus. Cultural disparities may have evolved between active units and the Marine Forces Reserve due to variances in law, practice, and involvement in the non-military world. This research sought to define the cultural perceptions that active component and reserve Marines have toward active forces and Marine Forces Reserve....

By using irregular sampling, an image may be digitized by concentrating sampling in areas of interest and reducing sampling in other areas- With this approach, storage required for the digital image is more efficiently used and is usually reduced. This thesis explores an interactive method for reconstructing a compressed image. An interactive method allows human intuition to be combined with the speed and versatility of a computer. The user is able to guide the reconstruction through difficult...

Cyberespionage is a prolific threat that undermines the power projection capacity of the United States through reduced economic prowess and a narrowing of the technical advantage employed by the American military. International attempts to limit hostile cyber activity through the development of institutions, normative patterns of behavior, or assimilation of existing laws do not provide the American national security decision maker with a timely or effective solution to address these threats....

Application of classical windows to time series data is a means of enhancing the performance of the periodgram. Use of these classical windows results in the broadening of the spectral mainlobe. A Kalman filter will smooth spectral data by dividing the periodgram of unwindowed time series data into piecewise constant segments, ideally into noise-only and signal-only segments. This allows for a more accurate representation of the mainlobe of the original periodgram. The Kalman filter was...

Computer simulation studies of a frequency domain adaptive beamforming algorithm are presented. These simulation studies were conducted to determine the multiple broadband target localization capability and the full angular coverage capability of the algorithm. The algorithm was evaluated at several signal-to-noise ratios with varying sampling rates. The number of iterations that the adaptive algorithm took to reach a minimum estimation error was determined. Results of the simulation studies...

Currently, two methods exist to determine trajectory of a ballistic penetrator: Poncelet Analysis and Differential Area Force Law (DAFL) methods. An exact solution for the Poncelet Equation exists; making for easy computation. However, the one dimensional nature of the equation fails to capture the intricate three-dimensional nature of real world ballistic penetrator trajectories. The DAFL methods employ empirically derived stress algorithms to calculate to forces acting on a differential area...

This study uses rawinsonde soundings and irradiance measurements taken in the Weddell Sea during the 1994 ANZFLUX experiment. A radiative transfer model was used to determine the influence of aerosols, cloud droplet size and water content on the radiative heat budget of the Weddell Sea. The modeled irradiances were compared with observations, and the model calculated the upward longwave irradiance from the Weddell Sea ice pack. Turbulent heat fluxes were calculated and combined with radiative...

Secondly, under the conditions of a START agreement, it will no longer be necessary for the Soviet...

This thesis investigates the use of current graphical interface techniques to build more effective computer-user interfaces to Operations Research (OR) schedule optimization models. The design is directed at the scheduling decision maker who possesses limited OR experience. The feasibility and validity of building an interface for this kind of user is demonstrated in the development of a prototype graphical user interface called TaskMaster. TaskMaster is designed as the Dialog component of a...

Starting with a least squares formulation of the parameter estimation problem, both fixed data and data-adaptive iterative algorithms are developed. We apply two new techniques, namely diagonal perturbation and multiple partitioning, to existing finite impulse response (FIR) and infinite impulse response (IIR) fixed data matrix splitting algorithms, resulting in improved performance. Also, we extend the fixed data algorithms to the data-adaptive case, and contrast them with FIR and IIR...

The challenge to developing applications for computer-based windowing systems is generating code for the graphical interface elements. Each windowing system offers its own set of protocols for building the graphical units, but these protocols are rarely portable across different hardware platforms. The X Window System transcends many of these incompatibilities and offers a standard for creating graphics. It is operating system and network independent. However, the basic programming library for...

In today's world, the United States is the dominant naval power. World powers are trading naval dominance in favor of naval defense, creating fleets of smaller ships to protect their littoral waters. As a result, the United States Navy will be called upon to engage enemy naval forces to ensure access against asymmetrical threats close to enemy coastlines. The Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) is a networked, focused-mission platform, designed to be swift, agile, stealthy, and capable of defeating...

Operational planners strive to find ways to load missiles on Vertical Launch System (VLS) ships to meet mission requirements in their Area of Responsibility (AOR). Requirements are variable: there are missions requiring specific types of missiles; each ship may have distinct capability or capacity to meet every mission; each ship may have a set number of missiles in inventory; and each mission will have a different priority. As a result, the missile-to-ship assignment is labor intensive....

This thesis develops a theory that explains why special operations succeed. The theory is important because successful special operations defy conventional wisdom. Special operations forces are usually numerically inferior to the enemy and generally these forces are attacking fortified positions. According to Carl Von Clausewitz, both of these factors should spell defeat, and yet, time and again -- these missions succeed.
