Real-time decision aid for enhancing ship's self-defense
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Our proposed Defensive Engagement System (DES) is designed to provide the submarine decision maker with automated actions, decision aids, and workflow cues to maximize the effectiveness of defensive actions when they are required. The DES encompasses automated defensive payload assignments, automated and optimized presets, evasion planning with options, rapid counter fire capability, and other defensive actions aids to provide enhanced situational awareness. The DES is designed to operate as a background function so that it is always engaged and current plans and recommendations can be reviewed during the watch routine. Our DES is also designed as both a forward fit and back fit capability. Leveraging our Combat System of the Future architecture, the forward fit application is designed as a service for a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) implementation. For the back fit requirements, a translation layer will be used to provide similar functionality for current architecture configurations. The proposed DES, takes a layered defensive strategy by providing sensor cueing for early assessments of transients or other energy detections of interest. With the sensor to display approach, defensive aids and recommendations can provide the best available guidance on the required accelerated defensive decision time line.
