It is shown that ion collisions introduce a slight reduction in the plasma frequency, along with an exponential decay of transient electron oscillations. The critical frequencies for penetration of a homogeneous ionosphere, for both isotropic and anisotropic ionospheres, are determined. The characteristic waves, for electromagnetic propagation within a homogeneous anisotropic ionosphere, are developed by considering an infinite series of electron velocities, produced by Ampere's force law, reacting with the electron oscillation produced by an exciting electric field. The complex indices of refraction are determined, both from a dispersion equation and from a derivation of the Appleton equation, which uses an arbitrary selection of the coordinate axes, thus emphasizing the invariance of the Appleton equation. Vector and tensor algebra is used throughout the analytical developments.; Supported by Navy Department, Naval Missile Center; http://archive.org/details/electronballisti00chan; This task was supported by: Navy Department, Naval Missile Center Work Request No. 62001; NA

The rationale and numerical technique of embedding an oceanic bulk mixed layer model with a multi-level primitive equation model is presented. In addition to the usual prognostic variables that exist in a multi-level primitive equation model, the embedded model predicts the depth of the well mixed layer as well as the jumps in temperature and velocity that occur at the base of that layer. The depth of the mixed layer need not coincide with any of the fixed model levels used in the primitive equations calculations. In addition to advective changes, the mixed layer can deepen by entrainment and it can reform at a shallower depth in the absence of entrainment. When the mixed layer reforms at a shallower depth, the vertical profile of temperature below, the new, shallower mixed layer is adjusted to fit the fixed-level structure used in the primitive equations calculations using a method which conserves heat, momentum and potential energy. Finally, a dynamic stability condition, which includes a consideration of both the vertical current shear and the vertical temperature gradient, is introduced in place of the traditional 'convective adjustment)'. A two-dimensional version of the model is used to test the embedded model formulations and to study the response of the ocean to a stationary axisymmetric hurricane. The model results indicate a strong interdependence between vertical turbulent mixing and advection of heat; The work reported herein was initially supported by the Naval Postgraduate School Foundation Research Program with funds provided by the Chief of Naval Research.

Tipo: Relatório
Português
This report describes an empirical analysis of a motion model that has been used to generate random submarine tracks for an antisubmarine warfare tactical decision aid. The model describes a submarine's motion as a series of transitions between the square cells of a grid that covers a defined operating region. A 3 x 3 transition matrix is associated with each cell of the grid which determines the submarine's transitions from a cell. The set of transition matrices define a Markov process. Despite its discrete nature, this Markov track generating process has been called a diffusion process in antisubmarine warfare tactical decision aid literature. The transition matrices are determined by tracks generated by an auxiliary stochastic process that is presumed to be of higher fidelity but more costly to implement than the Markov process; Prepared for: Naval Air Development Center, Johnsville, Pennsylvania; http://archive.org/details/empiricalanalysi00forr; O&MN, Direct Funding; NA

Empirical methods for estimating workload capacity

Bailey, Michael P.

Tipo: Relatório
Português
We explore experimental procedures for comparing the capabilities of complex discrete event service systems. Instead of measuring system capability by analyzing or simulating the system with a constant rate of arriving work, system capability is measured as the maximum rate of work arrival for which the system has a steady state. Hence, we seek the arrival rate which causes the system to be at full capacity. This rate is arguably the best indication of the service system's capability. We treat both work-conserving and non-work- conserving service systems, using traditional and specialized measures of system performance; Naval Postgraduate School Research Foundation; http://archive.org/details/empiricalmethods00bail; Naval Postgraduate School Research Foundation; NA

Português
In this study, we describe a decision process for establishing the threshold reliabilities for components of naval major caliber ammunition. A measure of reliability performance is described which relates directly to the weapons system's performance in a naval gunfire support environment. We use a simulation model to establish this relationship, a regression metamodel to estimate its parameters, and a simple decision process to specify component reliability thresholds which ensure that the ammunition is mission effective. We present this paper as an example of the integration of discrete event dynamic system analysis within a decision process; Naval Weapons Support Center (NWSC), Crane, Indiana; http://archive.org/details/establishingreli00bail; N4802991WXPM454; NA

The Navy policy maker is faced with a great deal of uncertainty when he attempts to formulate manpower plans for the Navy's future officer force structure. Many of these factors are beyond his control; however, there are a few critical factors over which he may exert considerable influence. It is the identification of some of these factors and their impact upon the combatant forces of the Navy of tomorrow and thus the required officer force structure with which this thinkpiece is concerned.

Português
This simulation is a versatile SIMSCRIPT program designed to determine transportation destination fluctuations caused by U.S. Naval vessel movements in the San Francisco Bay area. The through-put model was designed to investigate the relationship between the annual number of delivery trips and the average material delivery delay. Numerous parameters have been taken into consideration in the generation of a model that is as realistic as possible. Requirement priority, item quantity, customer movement, ultimate destination, and process time are the significant random variables which have been assigned probabilistic distributions. In view of the simulation results, it would appear that actual modification of the current shipping parameters may yield substantial transportation savings.; http://archive.org/details/impactofusnavalv00ange; Lieutenant Commander, Supply Corps, United States Navy

Approved for public release; distribution unlimited; This thesis is a continuation of a subject initiated by Lieutenant Brian R. Colfack, Medical Service Corps, U.S. Navy, who approached the utilization of Non Physician Providers (NPP) from the perspective of cost implications (Ref. 1). Colfack also discussed the history of the NPP movem.ent and the present mix of providers in the military sector. That thesis and the present work were undertaken as a part of the Naval Postgraduate School research project entitled "Navy Health Care Systems Professional and Paraprofessional Personnel Mix Study" sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Manpower. The thesis begins with an examination of the civilian and military physician's assistant (PA) and nurse practitioner (NP) utilization patterns. Then, to the extent that information was available, staffing models for the non-physician health care provider from the civilian and military sector are discussed. Implications for military utilization of NPPs follow. Staffing implications are then discussed in light of the models examined. Finally, a summary and conclusions chapter attempt to generalize the findings of the literature and draw upon the findings presented by Colfack.; http://archive.org/details/implicationsform00clar; Lieutenant...

Mass, salt, and heat transport by ocean currents across 35 degee north latitude in the Pacific ocean

Whitford, Dennis James

Português
Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; This work represents a synoptic study conducted in the North Pacific Ocean to determine mass, salt, and heat transports from a calculation of geostrophic currents. Comprehensive depth, temperature, and salinity data were obtained from the INDOPAC 1 and 16 expeditions (April 1976 and July 1977) which covered a complete cross-sectional area along 35 deg N from California to Japan. The geostrophic approximation was assumed valid. A level of no motion was determined at 851 meters by establishing mass continuity across the latitudinal cross section. A net northward salt transport of 16.27 x 10 to the 12th power 0/00/sec was determined. A resulting meridional heat transport of 288 x 10 to the 12th power cal/sec toward the equator was determined. It would have been expected that most of the oceanic heat transport would take place in the upper waters where the temperature and currents are much higher and stronger and that the transport would be poleward. However this study showed that the lower temperatures found at depth, transported at slower velocities, can balance the upper waters' heat transport due to the tremendous volume of middle, deep, and bottom water; http://archive.org/details/masssaltheattran00whit; Lieutenant...

Measures of performance for a mechanized infantry platoon and squad in the active defense.

Português
Approved for public release; distribution unlimited.; Without a data base, unit commanders and training managers in the U.S. Army are left to plan their training based on what they perceive as their unit's weaknesses while analysis agencies are helpless to assist in providing meaningful direction to training efforts. With a data base drawn from ARTEP or SQT type evaluations, analysis agencies could model both the hardware parameters associated with equipment and the human parameters associated with unit or individual performance. Such modelling efforts could provide results which would be helpful in measuring the cost effectiveness tradeoffs associated with various levels of unit or individual training. The purpose of this study is to explore what data should be collected during Army training exercises in order to facilitate analysis through combat models. More specifically, this thesis will examine a Mechanized Infantry Platoon and Squad in the Active Defense and recommend measures of perform. ance which are representative of the various functional areas which make up the Active Defense. Data representative of these measures of performance could then theoretically be used to accomplish analysis of training alternatives as previously discussed.; http://archive.org/details/measuresofperfor00cart; Captain...

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) has been demonstrated as a viable op- tion for reducing carbon emissions to the atmosphere. We consider a situa- tion where a tax on emissions is imposed on carbon dioxide (CO2) emitters to encourage their participation in CCS. Operators of CO2 transportation pipelines and storage sites enter into individual contracts with emitters to store CO2. We study the problem of setting the price and volume of these contracts under cost and emission uncertainty, and show how the storage operator's pro t can be optimized.

Provides an analysis of President Bush's new national security strategy first unveiled in Aspen, Colorado on August 2, 1990, and General Colin Powell's "base" force. If implemented, the new strategy and force structure would return a significant amount of U.S. ground and air forces to CONUS where most would be demobilized. In the event of a major crisis, the U.S. would rely on active and reserve forces for a contingency response. The new national security strategy in based upon a revised Soviet threat and new international security environment which allows us to assume two years warning of a major ground war in Europe. During this two year period, the U.S. would reconstitute additional military capability. Outline of new strategy and "base" force structure, transportation requirements, and whether or not the U.S. will retain a unilateral capability for overseas intervention. Discussion of parallel NATO initiatives.
