Abstract:

The NAVSTAR Global Positioning System GPS is a space based navigation system. This system is scheduled to be installed in a variety of military platforms. The receiver system for GPS will be installed in US Navy surface ships between 1989 and 1996. This thesis compares three alternative methods of completing this installation program 1 installation during a ships regularly scheduled overhaul, 2 installation by a special team of technicians, and 3 installation by the ships assigned personnel. The strength and weaknesses of each method are discussed. A recommendation of installation during regular overhaul is made. Author
