Thesis Title: Multiobjective Collaborative Optimization of Systems of Systems [PDF] - co-supervised with Dr. Timothy J. McCoy, Associate Professor of the Practice of Naval Construction and Engineering

This thesis examines the simultaneous design of several ships using the sea base concept as an example application of a network of ships working together. The number and characteristics of these ships determine the mission performance of the sea base. To properly design any of the sea base ships, the interrelationships must be included. A mission simulation is used to combine the performance characteristics of different ship designs into a single performance objective: the time to deliver a brigade size combat force to its assigned objectives.
