Abstract : The objective of this thesis is to analyze the current joint education and training track of Joint Specialty Officers (JSOs) for U.S. Navy aviators in order to forecast the number of future JSO eligible officers within this community. This thesis will consider two separate training paths for officers to complete in order to become JSO eligible. The mos preferred educates officers prior to assignment to a joint billet. The second path allows officers to complete their joint assignment prior to entering joint education. Recent historical transition, continuation and promotion rates by years of service and pay grade are used to forecast future officer output. These various rates and variables are applied within a PC-based spreadsheet to provide a user friendly joint officer management tool.
