The asymmetrical threats that challenge U.S. national policies are not large standing armies, but rather individuals who seek to usurp and coerce U.S. national interests. The nature of today's threats call for the U.S. military to change from finding, fixing, and destroying the enemy's forces to identifying, locating and capturing rogue individuals in order to destroy networks. To counter such threats, the USG will have to quickly and efficiently identify and find these targets globally....

The authors analyzed existing subsystem technologies in which the Marine Corps may immediately invest and employ at the company level and below. Based on lessons learned from previous research for the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory’s Unmanned Tactical Autonomous Control and Collaboration (UTACC) program, we aimed to determine if there is a subsystem that could consistently and dramatically improve operational performance in a segment of mission tasks that the Marine Corps may add to its...

This thesis examines the influence of the Conventional Armed Forces in Europe Treaty (CFE) on security in the European Continent after 1990. This study analyses and describes the origins of the CFE treaty and its development from the late 1990s until signing the CFE agreement during the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, which took place in November 1990 in Paris. In the history of Europe, the 1990s appear as a turbulent time. The end of the Cold War, collapse of communistic...

Presented is the initial step for the eventual implementation of a programmable GIC switched capacitor filter in a GaAs process. This thesis is the initial engineering effort in the accomplishment of this goal. The focus of this thesis is to design, fabricate, and test all necessary components for the construction of a GIC switched capacitor filter. All components will be stand alone so that future testing of each component may be accomplished. VLSI implementation will be accomplished using the...

A model of a distributed feedback (DFB) laser was implemented in MATLAB and SIMULINK. Using the laser rate equation, the model was simulated to obtain general characteristics of the chirp of the lasers frequency. The simulations were controlled by using different drive current waveforms, based on various bit patterns, data rates, and drive current values (threshold current and the extinction ratio). Once created, the laser drive current was passed to the SIMULINK DFB laser model. The output of...

This thesis uses spatial impulse response theory adapted from continuous-wave Fourier diffraction theory as the basis for a microcomputer program to model transient optical wave propagation. Programs to generate uniform circular and uniform square excitation functions are included, along with examples of the spatial impulse response for each. Additionally, two new excitation functions with circular Gaussian and circular Bessel spatial distributions are modeled for use in future research. All...

An investigation was conducted to determine the relation- ship between the non-reacting and the reacting flow characteristics of solid fuel ramjets. Polymethylmethacrylate fuel grains were burned in a ramjet motor on a thrust stand. Combustion efficiency, regression rate profile and pressures were determined for the reacting flows and compared to pro- files obtained in non-reacting flows for velocity, pressure, and near-wall and centerline turbulence intensity. Near-wall turbulence profiles...

A conparison of data from all previous energy loss experiments performed at the Naval Postgraduate School with new theoretical predictions is presented in this thesis. In addition, the data have been extended to include beryllium. With this extension, experiments have now been conducted on materials ranging in atomic number from 4 to 82. Agreement between experiment and theory is excellent for the most probable energy loss. However, theoretical values for the half-widths of the energy loss...

Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) circuits are largely immune to slowly accumulated radiation doses and therefore do not need the shielding required by complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) devices. This attribute renders GaAs circuits particularly attractive for space craft and military applications. However, it has been shown that GaAs circuits with short gate length transistors are excessively susceptible to single event upsets (SEU) due to enhanced charge collection at the edges of the gate...

The advancement and proliferation of high-resolution commercial imaging satellites presents a new opportunity for overland aerosol characterization. Current aerosol optical depth retrieval methods typically fail over areas with high surface reflectance, such as urban areas and deserts, since the upwelling radiance due to scattering by aerosols is small compared to the radiance resulting from surface reflection. The method proposed here uses shadows cast on the surface to exploit the differences...

A practical solution to the problem of realizing a signal transmission method for a secure voice communications system on an aircraft carrier flight-deck was the objective of this investigation. By using a very low frequency, less than 100 KHZ, and small coils, radiation was minimized. The resultant device was an audio transceiver MODEM in which narrow-band frequency modulation was applied at a carrier frequency of 50 KHZ by a voice signal bandlimited from 300 HZ to 3 KHZ to enable application...

Nitrogen-water vapor mixtures were excited by 1.5 MeV protons from a Van De Graaff generator. Intensity versus pressure data were recorded and plotted for the first negative transition and second positive transition in nitrogen. Theoretical equations were derived for the relative intensity as a function of pressure.

Selective Reenlistment Bonuses (SRBs) are offered to improve retention in designated military occupational specialties (MOSs) for specified years-of- service intervals (zones). The amount of the bonus is set by assigning an \"SRB Multiplier\" for each MOS and zone combination (cell). Determination of multipliers is modeled as a nonlinear knapsack problem which is then linearized to a generalized assignment problem. The objective is to minimize the sum over all cells of a weighted...

SEA PLOT is a three-dimensional graphics program written for the Compass Hammer research effort. The program portrays a war-at-sea scenario in which a single aircraft attacks a single ship target located at the origin of an earth-fixed coordinate system. To plot the three-dimensional scenario on a two- dimensional plotting surface, a conic projection technique is used in which a cone of vision is generated based on the position of a viewer's eye. The position of the eye is automatically placed...

This report presents the results of the design and fabrication of a Multiple-Loop Frequency Synthesizer. The design utilizes frequency control loops to extend the capture range of a phase-locked loop used to provide frequency stability. No harmonic generators, mixers or filters are used, in the usual sense; a single crystal oscillator is required. The synthesizer is small, light weight, accurate to within ± 0.0025% of the programmed frequency, covers the AM broadcast band (500 kHz to 1600...

The result is a procedure...

System reliability can be expressed in terms of the pattern of failure events over time. Assuming a nonhomogeneous Poisson process, and Weibull intensity function for complex repairable system failures, the degree of system deterioration can be approximated. Maximum likelihood estimators (MLEs) for the system Rate of Occurrence of Failure (ROCOF) function are presented. Evaluating the integral of the ROCOF over annual usage intervals yields the expected number of annual system failures. By...

The effects of father absence on military children were studied by use of a questionnaire and personal interviews. The sample consisted of U.S. military officers and their dependents stationed at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, CA. The study focused on the nature of the absence and how that affected the children's emotional stability and child development. In addition, some coping mechanisms were studied to determine if these aided in coping with separation. (Author)

Acoustic tomography signal transmissions in the Monterey Bay is modelled using the time-domain parabolic equation method of Collins and Westwood (1991). Comparison of the model output with the measured arrival structures obtained in Monterey Bay in 1988 shows that this Fourier synthesis can produce good agreement with data. Furthermore, identification of the measured modal arrivals is possible by decomposing the PE model output into individual normal modes. Modal identification provides for the...
