The Marine Forces Reserve Headquarters Training Centers MFRHTC located along thesoutheastern United States coastline must make timely and appropriate decisions regarding hurricanepreparation operations when they are threatened by tropical cyclones. In response to a request fromthe Marine Forces Reserve Headquarters to help their MFRHTCs prepare, the Naval PostgraduateSchool and the Center for Educational Design, Development, and Distribution are developing alocation specific hurricane decision simulator HDS for the MFRHTC in Hialeah, Florida. Thepurpose of this thesis is to identify the types of information and resources necessary for hurricanepreparations operations and form a conceptual design for a database support system DBSS that willenable the required information to be collected, stored, and accessed by the HDS.Mission engineering analysis, systems engineering, and the military decision-making processare used to evaluate and analyze the information, resources, and decisions that the commanderof the MFRHTC must make in preparation for a hurricane. The results of this thesis detail aconceptual design, functional baseline for the DBSS, specify the information and resourcesrequirements for the DBSS, and illustrate the decision logic of the HDS for the MFRHTC inHialeah.
