  • Robinson, Eric John, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    collect information. This may include taking pictures of the ground, gathering infrared photos, taking atmospheric pressure measurements, or any conceivable form of data collection. Often these separate organizations have ...
  • Relyea, Stephen L. (Stephen Lawrence) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Since chemotherapy began as a treatment for cancer in the 1940s, cancer drug development has become a multi-billion dollar industry. Combination chemotherapy remains the leading treatment for advanced cancers, and cancer ...
  • Culver, David M. (David Martin) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis considers the tactical reconnaissance asset allocation problem in military operations. Specifically this thesis presents methods to optimize, under uncertain conditions, tactical reconnaissance asset allocation ...
  • Bunting, Zachary S. (Zachary Shane) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    We investigate two distinct problems in military radio networking. In the first problem, we study a mobile airborne multi-hop wireless network. The mobility of the nodes leads to dynamic link capacities requiring changes ...
  • Kessler, John M. (John Michael) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    As some of the most technically complex systems in the world, United States fighter aircraft require a complex logistics system to sustain their reliable operation and ensure that the day-to-day Air Force missions can be ...
  • Frost, Emily Anne (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis, I design and implement a novel method of schedule and path selection between predetermined waypoints for unmanned underwater vehicles under uncertainty. The problem is first formulated as a mixed-integer ...
  • Evans, Jane A. (Jane Amanda) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    With the globalization of culture and economic trade, it is increasingly important not only to detect outbreaks of infectious disease early, but also to anticipate the social response to the disease. In this thesis, we use ...
  • Parandehgheibi, Marzieh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    We consider the problem of protection in multilayer networks. In single-layer net- works, a pair of disjoint paths can be used to provide protection for a source-destination pair. However, this approach cannot be directly ...
  • Wang, Hai, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The Last Mile Problem (LMP) refers to the provision of travel service from the nearest public transportation node to a home or office. We study the supply side of this problem in a stochastic setting, with batch demands ...
  • Bradwick, Matthew E. (Matthew Edward) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This thesis considers approaches to influencing population opinions during counterinsurgency efforts in Afghanistan. A discrete time, agent-based threshold model is developed to analyze the propagation of beliefs in the ...
  • Crimmel, Brian A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The U.S. military considers Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) a critical component of the future for two primary reasons - they are effective force multipliers and a significant risk-reducing agent. As the military's ...
  • Cates, Jacob Roy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    As our technology continues to increase, our military wishes to reduce the risk service members endure by using unmanned vehicles. These unmanned vehicles will, over time, become more independent and trustworthy in our ...
  • Howard, Nicholas J. (Nicholas Jacob) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This thesis considers the problem of optimally influencing social networks in Afghanistan as part of ongoing counterinsurgency efforts. The social network is analyzed using a discrete time agent based model. Each agent has ...
  • Cho, Philip Y (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The effective scheduling of fighter aircraft maintenance in the Air Force is crucial to overall mission accomplishment. An effective maintenance scheduling policy maximizes the use of maintenance resources and aircraft ...
  • Rajagopalan, Shreevatsa (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The question of computing average of numbers present at nodes in a network in a distributed manner using gossip or message-passing algorithms has been of great recent interest across disciplines -- algorithms, control and ...
  • Herold, Thomas Michael (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Recent decades have seen the development of more advanced sensor and communication systems, with the future certainly holding more innovation in these areas. However, current operations involve "stovepipe" systems in which ...
  • Chaiwanon, Wongsakorn (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Poor management of the patient flow in intensive care units (ICUs) causes service rejections and presents significant challenges from the standpoint of capacity planning and management in ICUs. This thesis reports on the ...
  • Hung, Benjamin W. K. (Benjamin Wei Kit) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    This work considers the nonlethal targeting assignment problem in counterinsurgency in Afghanistan, the problem of deciding on the people whom US forces should engage through outreach, negotiations, meetings, and other ...
  • Chiraphadhanakul, Virot (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    A myriad of uncontrollable factors in airline operations make delays and disruptions unavoidable. Most conventional scheduling models, however, ignore the presence of uncertainties in actual operations in order to limit ...
  • Frumin, Michael S (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The broad goal of this thesis is to demonstrate the potential positive impacts of applying automatic data to the management and tactical planning of a modern urban railway. Tactical planning is taken here to mean the set ...
