This report contains summaries of research projects in the Department of Operations Research. A list of recent publications is also included which consists of conference presentations and publications, books, contributions to books, published journal papers, technical reports, and thesis abstracts. The research program at NPS consists of both reimbursable sponsored and institutionally funded research. The research varies from very fundamental to very applied, from unclassified to all levels of classification. Reimbursable Sponsored Program This program includes those projects externally funded on the basis of proposals submitted to outside sponsors by the Schools faculty. These finds allow the faculty to interact closely with RDTE program managers and high-level policymakers throughout the Navy, DoD, and other government agencies as well as with the private sector in defense-related technologies. The sponsored program utilizes Cooperative Research and Development Agreements CRADAs with private industry, participates in consortia with other government laboratories and universities, provides off- campus courses either on-site at the recipient command or by VTC, and provides short courses for technology updates. NPS Institutionally Funded Research Program NIFR The institutionally funded research program has several purposes 1 to provide the initial support required for new faculty to establish a NavyDoD relevant research area, 2 to provide support for major new initiatives that address near-term Fleet and OPNAV needs, 3 to enhance productive research that is reimbursable sponsored, 4 to contribute to the recapitalization of major scientific equipment, and 5 to cost-share the support of a strong post-doctoral program. Institute for Joint Warfare Analysis IJWA Program The IJWA Program provides funding to stimulate innovative research ideas with a strong emphasis on joint, interdisciplinary areas.
