I would like to take a moment to say thanks to my fellow clients in the IEM program, it has been a great two years and I have learned so much from our interactions in class and the many teams we were on. To the faculty that make this program an outstanding experience, and taught me real life skills that will continue to enhance my career. To my colleagues at AFWI, that have been patient with me as I pursued this degree. A special thanks to Col Howard Ward for being a great mentor and leader, and giving of his time to the IEM program. Mr. James “UW” Powell for giving me the confidence to take on this challenge, and writing an outstanding recommendation letter to get me into the program, still can’t believe they bought it, and providing a tool that helped in keeping my research organized and saved me countless hours. My personal dedications and acknowledgements are on the thesis itself.
The paper is under the button that says “The Thesis”.
