5 Thesis vs. Non-Thesis Study complete Outcome: Thesis is the preferred option Findings: Support of Navy and DoD relevant research is enhanced by the variety of theses vs. a single capstone Determined thesis to be optimal format for measuring individual student education outcomes including: Technical Writing, Critical Thinking, Synthesis and In-depth Knowledge While not required provides a preferred approach for the above in meeting WASC accreditation Trade Study 5

6 Thesis vs. Non-Thesis Findings (continued): Faculty involvement with students is broadened and promoted as well as faculty currency enhancement through thesis adviser role Research provides faculty incentives to interact more thoroughly with key sponsors (NRO, SMDC, N2/N6, etc.) Faculty funding model would be drastically impacted Benefit of a capstone group design project is already incorporated into the curriculum Students have unique opportunities to incorporate fleet experience into thesis research that Non-thesis would not afford Trade Study – cont’d 6

7 Partial but representative list of Navy and DoD relevant research served by SSO student theses: Beaming Electricity Via Relay Satellites in Support of Deployed Combat Forces – Capt. Essenpreis Investigating a New Approach to Space-Based Information Networks – Maj Horvath, Capt Tackett, LT Yaste Content-Aware Adaptive Compression of Satellite Imagery Using Artificial Vision – LT Wilcox DOD SATCOM Information Assurance Approaches Applied to Joint Aerial Layer Network (JALN) – LCDR McKee Operationally Responsive Spacelift: Supporting a Seven-day Launch Schedule – Capt. Hearne Narrowband SATCOM Analysis for the E-6B Community – LCDR Ferra Multi-Source Fusion of Ship-Tracking Information – Dr. Loomis Navy Relevant Research 7

8 8 Title: Enabling Cooperative Engagement Capability over Satellite Communications Student: LT Matt Faulkenberry Advisor: CAPT(ret) Al Scott Abstract: Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) could provide real-time common operational air picture for the theater if sensors were networked over satellite communications links. Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) brings IP-based communications to the UHF spectrum. Using QualNet network simulation and STK modeling, this thesis will evaluate the feasibility of enabling CEC over MUOS. Sharing CEC amongst gateway nodes via MUOS could bring significant improvements in the accuracy of the air picture across an entire AOR. Furthermore, CEC provides intriguing capability to BMD missions, particularly shore-ship integration. With full sensor integration, CEC could be the next step in net-centric warfare and revolutionize how information is shared in the AOR. Abstract: CLASSIFIED TS//SCI//TK. Title: IMINT Requirement Satisfaction Analysis Student: LT Jared Smearman Advisor: Prof. Mike Ross Title: Using AIS to target and influence adversaries in the Maritime Domain Student: LT Colin Boyle Advisor: Prof. Doug Fouts, and Prof. James Scrofani Abstract: CLASSIFIED TS//SCI//TK. Title: The Role of Space in Middle Eastern Security Relations: Orbital Capabilities and Motivations in Iran, Israel, and Turkey Student: LT Keith Rinne Advisor: Prof. Clay Moltz Abstract: According to the 2010 U.S. National Security Space Strategy, the U.S. will “promote security and stability in space… deepen cooperation with allies and friends, and work will all nations toward the responsible and peaceful use of space” as well promote other states to be responsible for their actions. How these three countries conduct operations in space for their own security will affect not only U.S. policy in space, but also U.S. national space systems. The most important questions that will be raised in this thesis are why and how these three nations are using space technology. Another set of issues to be addressed is what will come of this new dimension of space competition. Each country’s history in terms of its space program will be looked at, including its military aspects, and then its political and technological aspirations for space today will be examined to discover its national security motivations.

9 Faculty continue to attend technical exchanges and various telecons Cubesat Conference, Space Warfighter Forum, C2 SSA COI, SOUTHCOM SNaP-3 JCTD, DoD Narrowband Study, STRATCOM Protected SATCOM study Group projects, coursework and exercises, student thesis research Projects include: Space Systems Vulnerability Analysis & Assessments, Threat Space & Counterspace Analysis & Assessments Coursework/exercises include: Real world OPLAN scenarios used for Space Annex development exercises, A2AD analysis, A2AD contested SATCOM mitigation analysis, protected SATCOM architecture analysis, to name a few Thesis topics from previous slides Operational Relevance 9

10 Guest lecturers for courses Often at the SECRET classification or higher Organizations represented include: NRO, SMDC/ARSTRAT, NASIC, NAVSOC, JFCC Space, JSpOC, JNWC, SMC, SSDP, NASA Including discussions on EMMW SS4000 discussion topics and guest speakers from current real world operations AIAA, NASA, NASA JPL, NASIC, DNI, SMC, NAVSOC, NRO, Boeing Space Systems Coordination with CAG and IDCFE E-week short course in conjunction with the Cyber Academic Group Participation with other guest speaker presentations hosted by CAG and IDCFE Including recent visits from N2/N6F4 and ONR Operational Relevance 10

12 Low quota numbers and the impact on curriculum 5% of 6 quotas = loss of 1 student 20% of 6 quotas = loss of 2 students A reduction of student throughput in an already minimal number of quotas will: Threaten the viability of the program Dramatically affect team projects as there will be insufficient participants to fill necessary roles to satisfy learning objectives and ESRs (4, 6c, 7a,b,c, 8a,b,e, 9a) Detract from academic collaboration resulting from not only number of students involved but designator communities represented Student Throughput Concerns 12
