Abstract : This thesis documents the design and implementation of a vertical replenishment simulation using the object oriented programming language MODSIM II written by CACI Products Company of La Jolla, California and the Simulation Mobility Modeling and Analysis Toolbox written by Professor Mike Bailey of the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey. Using data generated by this simulation, performance parameters are evaluated for three candidate helicopters (the CH-46E, the CH-60, and the KMAX) under consideration to replace the CH-6D logistics support aircraft currently in use by the U.S. Navy. A quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the most promising helicopter follows this analysis.
