Ad Hoc routing simulation and tactical picture display tool for navy

Aymak, Onur
The importance of communication is vital in wartime. The capability of having all the position information of the allied and enemy forces in a single Tactical Information Display System (TIDS), maintains a great advantage for deciding what to do before the enemy reacts. A Naval Information Distributing System (NIDS) is developed for building an effective communication infrastructure between the war ships. In the designed network, besides the mobile platforms (ships), some fixed platforms (land stations) are used to transfer the information coming from these mobile platforms to all the other platforms. To demonstrate the performance and effectiveness of the Naval Information Distribution System, a discrete event simulation model is developed on a Geographic Information System. The goal of this thesis is to describe and experimentally evaluate an effective and feasible information sharing and routing system for Navy.


A proposed model for Turkish land forces command software intensive systems acquisition process
Bilir, Nevzat; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Information Systems (2002)
Turkish Land Forces Command uses information technology opportunities to satisfy its needs arising from the obligation for being a strong army.One of the main difficulties in using information technologies is the acquisition of these systems. This thesis reviews the fundamentals of software intensive systems acquisition process and then proposes a new model for Turkish Land Forces Command.Software acquisition process models are discussed and compared with each other.The current Turkish Land Forces Com...
A geographic information systems tool development for geostatistical analysis of endangered endemic vascular plants of Turkey
Demirci, Barbaros; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Information Systems (2005)
Modern information systems strive to provide effective use of resources. Supplied with analysis tools, geographical information systems (GIS) can serve its stakeholders with minimal requirements. In this study, GIS capabilities were employed for Turkish Flora. Data related with the threatened plants that are indigenous to Turkey were gathered from the relevant literature and reshaped into a dataset in which spatial locations were represented in a geographically referenced format. Afterwards, this output was...
Optimization algorithms for resource allocation problem of air tasking order preparation
Bayrak, Ahmet Engin; Polat, Faruk; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In recent years, evolving technology has provided a wide range of resources for Military forces. However, that wideness also caused resource management difficulties in combat missions. Air Tasking Order (ATO) is prepared for various missions of air combats in order to reach objectives by an optimized resource management. Considering combinatorial military aspects with dynamic objectives and various constraints; computer support became inevitable for optimizing the resource management in air force operations...
An information system re-structuring study for the financial inspection board
Yıldırım, Meltem; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Information Systems (2004)
With the scope of this study, certain tasks of the finance inspectors have been restructured by means of information technology in an effective way. The new structure has been integrated to the Internet technology and thus can eliminate the problems of time and place. The Documentation and Personnel Departments of FIB have been chosen for piloting and performance assesment has been performed after the restructuring with new technology. The result of the assesment suggest that, when compared to the old syste...
Trusted mail gateway
Ayla, Erkut Sinan; Özgit, Attila; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
The study aims to make contribution to solve mail security problems. The Trusted Mail Gateway provides a domain with the basic security services that are message integrity, confidentiality, non-repudiation, origin authentication and availability while message (e-mail) being delivered through the Internet. It generates S/MIME digital signatures and performs S/MIME encryption on behalf of the domain using secret key cryptography and public-key techniques and generating Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) data ...
