Abstract:

MANPOWER COSTS ARE A MAJOR FACTOR IN DETERMINING LIFE CYCLE COST OF A SHIP SYSTEM. IN THE CASE OF A COMPLEX SHIPBOARD SYSTEM, SUCH AS THE AEGIS COMBAT SYSTEM, THE IMPACT OF OPERATIONAL MANPOWER ON TOTAL SYSTEM COST IS PARTICULARY ACUTE. THE REDUCTION OF HIGH QUALITY, HIGHLY TRAINED COMPLEX COMBAT SYSTEM PERSONNEL IS A HIGH PAYOFF PROGRAM OBEJECTIVE. AS THE AEGIS CRUISER CLASS MOVES INTO THE FLEET AND THE DOG-51 CLASS DESTROYER REENTERS THE ACQUISTITION PAHSE, WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY EXITS TO CONDUCT A RIGOROUS, OBJECTIVE SYSTEM ANALYSIS OF THE MAN-MACHINE\MAN-COMPUTER INTERFACE IN AN OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT USING DESIGN WORK STUDY TECHNIQUES. THIS PROPOSED EFFORT WILL INVOLVE ANALIYZING THE CURRENT CG 47 AEGOS COMBAT SYSTEM COMBAT INFORMATION CENTER IN SCENARIOS DEVELOPED TO EXERCISE THE AAW, ASW, C3 ELW SYSTEMS. THE COMBAT SYSTEM WILL BE ANALYZED TO DEVELOP ALTERNATIVES TO THE STRUCTURE OF OPERATOR ROLES AND THE BALANCE BETWEEN MAN-MACHINE\MAN-COMPUTER INTERFACES AND THE METHODOLOGY USED WILL BE EVALUATED
