An evaluation of the performance of a SONET management system was conducted to better understand its management capabilities due to network disruptions in the presence of a traffic load. This study analyzed the Cisco Transport Manager (CTM) which manages a testbed of four Cisco ONS15454 optical systems. The network was injected with HTTP and FTP traffic generated by the Spirent Smartbits system installed with TeraMetrics Gigabit Ethernet modules and load calibration configured by the Spirent...

The cross sections for the elastic scattering of electrons from atomic oxygen are calculated in the energy range between 0 and 13.6 electron volts. Polarization of the atom is included by using a term in the potential function which has the correct asymptotic behavior and which vanishes at the origin. Previous theoretical and experimental results are discussed.

The suspected impact of climate change on natural hazards, as identified by the Inter-governmental Panel for Climate Change, is expected to lead to a world where natural disasters are more frequent and severe in nature. This thesis investigates how climate change, in particular its effect on natural disasters, will impact the Department of Defense (DoD) mission to support stability worldwide through military Foreign Disaster Relief (FDR). To do that, it examines the question, why does the...

Cloud computing has quickly revolutionized computing practices of organizations, to include the Department of Defense. However, security concerns over co-location attacks have arisen from the consolidation inherent in virtualization and from physical hardware hosting virtual machines for multiple businesses and organizations. Current cloud security methods, such as Amazon's Virtual Private Cloud, have evolved defenses against most of the well-known fingerprinting and mapping methods in order to...

The role of vortex structure in tropical cyclone motion is studied using a moving-grid, nondivergent barotropic model on a b plane in a no-flow environment. Initial condition sensitivity tests reveal that the northwestward \"beta\" drift of the vortex is controlled by the symmetric circulation in the r = 3000 - 80 km \"critical\" annulus. Enhanced cyclonic or anticyclonic flow in the critical annulus leads to long-term cyclonic or anticyclonic turning motions. The dynamics...

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...

This thesis examines the reliance on air power for fire support by light forces and whether other fire support assets could perform these missions better. By studying the historical evolution of fire support, air power and small wars doctrine, patterns emerge in how these developments interrelate. These patterns have led to a system that does not take advantage of some of the capabilities of other fire support assets, mainly artillery and mortars. The case of Operation Enduring Freedom, in...

Physical network maps are important to critical infrastructure defense and planning. Current state-of-the-art network infrastructure geolocation relies on Domain Name System (DNS) inferences. However, not only is using the DNS relatively in accurate for infrastructure geolocation, many router interfaces lack DNS name entries.

The solutions of the phase equation for a potential with the asymptotic properties of an atomic polarization potential are studied with the intention of developing a computer program for direct integration of the phase equation for the s-wave phase shift of an arbitrary potential. Such a program is developed and its limitations are discussed. In addition, an appendix is devoted to the variational principles of Kohn and Schwinger for calculating phase shifts.

Why are the dynamics of power necessarily an important part of managerial processes? 2. How do effective commanders acquire power? 3. How and for what purposes do effective commanders use power? The following are the key conclusions drawn from this literature review: 1. Commanders are dependent on subordinates and...

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....

Barriers to women’s service in the U.S. military have been greatly reduced over the past two decades. Policies preventing women from serving on ships, submarines, and in attack aircraft were removed in 1994. More recently, in January 2013, the Department of Defense overturned the 1994 Exclusion Policy on women serving in direct ground combat units. Implementing this change presents a significant challenge. The decision to do so has reignited a long-standing debate over women’s rights and...

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...
