This thesis revisits the Alternative Propulsion Study results for a MSC, which were constrained by the inability of the Navyâ s design tools to adequately search the full design space. This thesis will also assess automated methods to improve the APS approach, and examine a range of power generation alternatives using realistic operational profiles and requirements to develop a notional medium surface combatant (CGXBMD). It is essential to base conclusions on the non-dominated design space, and this new approach will use a multi-objective optimization to find non-dominated designs in the specified design space and use new visualization tools to assess the characteristics of these designs. This automated approach and new tools are evaluated in the context of the revisited study.
