Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) is a unique graduate school — an institution dedicated to providing education and research with a focus on relevance to the defense and security arenas and on recognizing and innovatively solving problems in support of our military forces, our country’s global partners, and our national security. In October 2007, the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Coast Guard published an “historical first,” an initiative titled A Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Seapower, which outlines how these services will collaborate to assist the United States in preventing wars as well as winning them, and in protecting U.S. vital interests and global prosperity. At the heart of the success of this maritime strategy are adaptability and flexibility from the unified forces, and a blend of peacetime engagement and major combat operations capabilities.

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; This thesis examines the similarities and differences between the Naval Aviation Maintenance Program (NAMP) and International Standards Organization (ISO) 9000 quality management systems (QMS), and what changes must be done to bring the NAMP to ISO 9000 standards. The NAMP is naval aviation's overall guiding document that outlines command, administrative, and management relationships, and assigns maintenance policy and procedure responsibilities to the respective individuals for management. ISO 9000 is a series of international standards establishing requirements and guidelines for maintaining an organization's quality system, which focuses on prevention rather than detection This thesis will first examine ISO 9000 QMS aspects in relation to intermediate maintenance actions. Next, a plan for implementing the ISO 9000 QMS in naval aviation's organizational and intermediate maintenance activities is developed. Specifically, process maps are described for QM documentation, policies, and procedures under both the NAMP and ISO 9000, and then compared and contrasted. Then, a sample ISO 9000 quality manual for the Tool Control Program (TCP) on an intermediate maintenance activity, including how this manual can satisfy the 20 tenets of the ISO 9000 QMS is developed. Finally...

Approved for public release, distribution unlimited; This thesis describes a multi-faceted evaluation of the U.S. Naval Aviation Crew Resource Management (CRM) program. CRM training is used to instruct naval aviators in safety critical, non-technical behaviors. Reactions were evaluated by using a single item from command safety climate questionnaires (n=51, 570 observations over nine years). Attitudes were assessed using a 37-item survey (364 responses). Knowledge was evaluated using a 10-item multiple-choice test (123 responses). Finally, the causes of naval aviation mishaps from fiscal years 1997-2007 (238 mishaps) were examined to identify how many were attributed to failings related to CRM concepts. It was found that aviators perceived CRM training to be useful, had positive attitudes towards concepts addressed in the training, and the level of knowledge was constant across rank and aircraft type. Nevertheless, human error still accounts for more than 80% of all mishaps in naval aviation, and over 65% of those are attributed to at least one failure in CRM. As human error continues to plague naval aviation, routine evaluations of CRM's effectiveness are critical to ensure it is achieving its goal to "improve mission effectiveness by minimizing crew preventable errors...

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; The Hellenic Navy, in a continuous effort to improve its maintenance capability, is seeking improved quality to handle both today's and future needs. Such a quality improvement could be realized by examining and implementing a Total Quality Leadership (TQL) process similar to that at the Long Beach Naval Shipyard (LBNSY). This thesis uses the framework of Dr. W. Edwards Deming's philosophy of management, highlighting his fourteen points to assess the implementation of TQL at LBNSY. Personal interviews were conducted and a climate questionnaire given to selected TQL-trained civilian senior and middle managers at LBNSY. The results were evaluated to assess the performance of TQL at LBNSY and to determine its possible applicability for the Hellenic Naval Stations.; Lieutenant Commander, Hellenic Navy

Approved for public release, distribution is unlimited; The ability to transition technology developments to operational systems is of great importance to the Department of the Navy (DoN). One way to achieve increased transitions is to operate more efficiently - more "like a business." Over the years significant programmatic and policy changes have been introduced in the DoN. One of these changes was the initiation of a new science and technology (S & T) transition process for delivering new capabilities in a more focused manner -- the Future Naval Capability (FNC) process. This thesis examines the FNC technology transition process from a business process perspective. A number of common business parameters are researched and used for comparison to the FNC Process. The goals and objectives of the FNC Process are documented and feedback is obtained from the stakeholder community. Although the FNC Process is new, and remains a work-in-progress, the results of this thesis reveal frustration and concern from all stakeholder communities regarding continued difficulties with the process for delivering new capabilities to the warfighter. In comparing FNC Process parameters to those in the commercial sector this research identifies areas where the FNC operations differ from the private sector. In those areas where useful comparisons can be made the FNC metrics fall short. To realize the increased transitions desired...

Approved for public release, distribution is unlimited; The purpose of this study was to determine whether Naval Medicine's current Information Assurance Policy and resultant efforts properly address federal requirements or current threats confronting Naval Medicine information technology professionals. The primary research was conducted with a survey instrument detailing thirty questions with various response categories. The findings of the survey questionnaire revealed the existing numbers of previously compromised systems were directly related to the frequency of vulnerability scanning and remediation practices in the current threat environment. This study will provide insight to anyone interested in the future assessment of Naval Medicine's information security posture. These findings have important implications for command personnel charged with the responsibility and accountability of Naval Medicine's networks and data systems, as well as other communities throughout the Navy.; Lieutenant, United States Navy

This paper opens with an examination of existing legal restraints on naval forces and arms control agreements and concludes that the U.S. is already heavily engaged in naval arms control. Given the new international security environment and the new U.S. regionally-oriented national security and military strategies, the author then recommends a series of additional naval arms control measures that should be taken: exchanges of data, transparency, INCSEA, cooperative measures, an agreement on the laws of submarine warfare, abolishing NCND, no first tactical nuclear use at sea, NWFZs, advanced notification of operational-level exercises, environmental protection measures, controls over maritime technologies, armed escorts of nuclear shipments, new Roes, PALs, the resolution of outstanding political issues at sea, deep cuts in nuclear forces, CFE follow-on, limits on specific types of naval forces, geographic limits, expanded standing naval forces, and a re negotiation of the ABM Treaty. The paper then addresses verification and compliance issues. Author concludes that since the U.S. Navy has already managed to avoid major arms control while balanced on the precarious 'slippery slope', there is no reason to continue its stonewalling policies; Director...

Approved for public release, distribution unlimited; This thesis analyzed both the human factors involved in Naval Aviation mishaps and the results of a survey of the safety concerns of Naval aircrews. Naval Aviation mishap data between 2000-2008 revealed skill-based errors and coordination/communication/planning factors to be the leading causes of mishaps. In contrast, the Naval aircrews surveyed in 2008 believed ops tempo/workload, proficiency, complacency, and motivational exhaustion (burnout) to be the most likely causes of future mishaps. To address these concerns, a mishap intervention generation and evaluation methodology recently created by Shappell and Wiegmann (2006, 2009, in press) called the Human Factors Intervention Matrix (HFIX) was examined. Drawing upon the domains of human systems integration (HSI) and the Joint Capabilities Integration Development System's (JCIDS) doctrine, organization, training, material, leadership, personnel, and facilities (DOTMLPF) analysis, the HFIX methodology was revised and expanded. It is suggested that this revised framework will be useful to both the developers of future Naval aircraft systems and safety professionals in reducing the occurrence of human error-related mishaps.; US Navy (USN) author.

MBA Professional Report; Shipboard Supply Officers' training focuses on maintaining accountability and very little on operational logistics, which is only presented at predeployment briefs that last one or two days. Many Supply Officers suffer information overload during these briefs, thus making the effectiveness of the briefs questionable. On the other hand, there is insufficient information on port services and lessons learned for effective planning. This project proposes the implementation of a Web-Based Logistics Information System to act as a single platform for Naval supply chain and shipboard customers for effective logistics planning and execution, and as an information system for corporate knowledge management. The capability of a Web-based system will optimize Naval supply chain operations, significantly reduce man-hours, provide a mechanism for continuous process improvement, and enable the Naval supply system to become a learning organization.

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; This thesis analyzes the military performance of Naval officers who graduated from the Naval Academy Preparatory School (NAPS) and subsequently received a commission through the United States Naval Academy (USNA). Using a sample from the Navy Personnel Research and Development Center's USNA longitudinal Officer Data Base, two measures of performance were examined for officers commissioned between 1980 and 1985. Retention was first analyzed by creating a binary criterion to designate whether an officer was on active duty or not as of June 1990, producing a continuation rate for each year group in the study. A performance index was also developed, based on the number of recommendations for early promotion (REP) appearing on all qualified fitness reports. The results indicate that retention rates tend to be higher for USNA graduates who attended NAPS than for those who did not. However, NAPS graduates are less likely than other USNA officers to receive a REP on their fitness report. Performance differences were found based on demographic characteristics, education, and Navy experience. Several recommendations for future research on NAPS graduates are offered.; Lieutenant, United States Navy

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; This thesis describes the development and validation of a naval battle model which incorporates a tactical theory by Captain Wayne P. Hughes, Jr. Opposing forces are portrayed as aggregations of the staying power and combat power of their individual platforms. Attrition is modeled as a force-on- force process and is expressed in terms of the degradation of each force's combat power and staying power throughout the engagement, user variation of model inputs concerning the timing, direction and strength of each force's fire permits analysis of the impact of scouting effectiveness and Command and Control on battle dynamics. Data from fourteen historical naval battles were gathered to compute model input parameters for the opposing forces and their interactions. The model's prediction of the outcome is compared with each battle's actual outcome. The conclusion drawn from this analysis that the model is a fair representation of reality. The model's potential for practical application is explored by using it to analyze the tactical options of the U.S. commander at the World War II Battle of Savo Island. Model results clearly indicate the weakness in U.S. tactics in this battle and suggest alternative tactics which afforded a better chance of success. (Author); Lieutenant...

The Naval Shipyard Optimal Drydock Loading and Capacity Utilization Model presented in this thesis is a tool to optimally load the Naval Shipyard's drydocks. The problem is constrained by the length, type and timing of each ship's required maintenance; current and projected capabilities of existing drydocks; current load of the drydocks; and the requirement to perform maintenance on the drydocks. Prior to this model, the Navy used a suboptimal, manual procedure that took one to two weeks to perform. This inefficiency became critical when an Assistant Secretary of the Navy requested a drydock capacity utilization study, requiring optimal loadings under numerous scenarios. An optimization model which lacks limiting assumptions, allows easy modification of input data and is capable of quick analysis of drydock loading scenarios was developed and executed fast enough to provide timely answers. It is implemented via the General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS). Data management and interface with the GAMS software is controlled via the Naval Shipyard Drydock Loading and Capacity Utilization Program (a stand-alone program written in Microsoft QBasic); Lieutenant, United States Navy

Approved for public release; distribution unlimited.; This report develops a modern naval combat model. It deals with naval surface missile combat and models the attrition as a force-on-force process described in discrete time steps, or slaves. The degradation of each force is expressed in terms of remaining staying power and combat power in both opponents. It is based on Lt. Beall's model, but since it deals with missile warfare it incorporates several human factors that affect the outcome of a naval battle: specifically scouting effectiveness, leadership, morale, and training.; Lieutenant, Hellenic Navy

The collapse of East-West competition for global preeminence is unleashing powerful forces for strategic change in the Asia-Pacific region. A reconfiguration of the regional security balance is taking place, especially a resurging naval rivalry, aspiring hegemons--notably China, Japan and India-- jostle for leadership roles. This report examines the central role being played by China in the unfolding security changes in Asia. Chinese naval modernization is analyzed within the context of China's Southeast Asian maritime interests, its new maritime strategy, and its evolving naval capabilities. The report recommends: maintaining a significant U.S. naval presence in Asia to protect American economic and political interests in the region; creating a loose yet textured and inclusive multilateral set of security relations in the Asia- Pacific region; initiating a Sino-American naval rapprochement as a prelude to enhanced regional naval cooperation; and, reassuring America's friends in the region through a continuing American naval deterrence; Prepared for: the Chief of Naval Operations, Strategy, Plans and Policy Division and the Naval Postgraduate School.

The Colombian Navy (COLNAV) has been outsourcing flight services from a private company since 2003 in order to provide transportation for troops and military cargo as well as general logistical support. The Colombian Naval Aviation's (AVNA) lack of proper equipment to perform these types of missions in a cost-efficient manner has required the senior naval command to sign iterative contracts, over four years, with a private contractor, one of the two companies with such capacity in the country, and the only one with the available resources to accomplish the contracts' terms. Such limitations have developed a highly-dependent relationship with one supplier, resulting in a non-beneficial agreement for COLNAV, especially with sensitive security implications, considering the internal Colombian context generated by the Narco-terrorist Organizations (ONT) within the national borders. This situation will be analyzed from a managerial perspective, and using a Game Theory approach, present four possible alternatives in order to strengthen COLNAV's bargaining position when dealing with a sole source of aviation services and, thus, improve the Naval Aviation's capabilities in the long run.; Colombian Navy author.

Approved for public release;distribution is unlimited; This thesis calculates and compares the marginal cost of graduating a naval officer from the United States Naval Academy (USNA), Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC), and Officer Candidate School (OCS). After defining the variable and fixed cost functions for each commissioning source, the total cost, average cost, and marginal cost per graduate are calculated for fiscal year 1989 graduates. Compared to average cost, the marginal cost per Academy graduate is more in line with the marginal cost per graduate for NROTC, and OCS. The results support the conclusion that a majority of the Naval Academy's costs are fixed in the short-run and that savings realized by reducing the number of graduates would be overstated by using average cost. This thesis recommends using marginal cost to estimate savings from reductions in officer accessions in the short-run.; Lieutenant, United States Navy
