Title Kwajalein Infrastructure Prioritization Methodology.
Publication Date Jul 2012

Abstract The Reagan Missile Test Site operates in the Kwajalein Atoll, testing missiles for Space and Missile Defense Command. This army base located on Kwajalein to test these missiles is not up to code as an army installation. To update the base to Army standard will cost around $500 million, which is not plausible for the small installation. The buildings and infrastructure on Kwajalein are failing apart and if not fixed they could hinder or ruin the base's ability to execute their mission. The proposed model ranks different projects that will fix the installation, based on values that nest into supporting the mission on Kwajalein. To narrowly define the problem, we interviewed stakeholders and sent out surveys to the residents of Kwajalein in order to understand what they valued and what the garrison looked like from their perspectives. Multiple Objective Decision Analysis (MODA) was conducted to compare the different value measures together. Since each value measure is rated differently, it would be difficult to compare them to one another if there was no way to bring them under one type of measurement or unit; MODA allows us to do this.
