Curric Review Correspondence
• Letter submitted to N15, Action Item Complete
• Endorsement package response from Acting

4
Trade Study
• 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
5
Trade Study – cont’d
• 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
6
Navy Relevant Research
• 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
•

Networks – Maj Horvath, Capt Tackett, LT Yaste
•
Content-Aware Adaptive Compression of Satellite Imagery Using
Artificial Vision – LT Wilcox

Navy Relevant Research
Title: Enabling Cooperative
Engagement Capability over
Satellite Communications
Student: LT Matt Faulkenberry
Advisor: CAPT(ret) Al Scott
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
Title: IMINT Requirement
Satisfaction Analysis
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: 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.

11
Student Throughput Concerns
• 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
