Award Amount: $69,998.00
 

Abstract:

Submarine tactical information systems consist of data networks of differing classifications which cannot be arbitrarily connected. Currently submarines manage these systems using period processing methods which require operators to clear the data from one network connection prior to connecting to other networks. Advances in data systems security in non-submarine environments have exhibited capabilities that could be implemented in submarine tactical networks. Current state of the art in data systems security has yet to be applied to submarine tactical networks which, due to the nature of the operating environment, must meet specific processor performance requirements, be reliable and stable, and must comply with Navy Open Architecture (NOA) standards. SOLUTE Consulting will leverage the work already in-progress on an Airborne MLS architecture and partner with the DoD leader in Multi-Level Security (MLS) technology, General Dynamics C4 Systems (GDC4S). By addressing five technical objectives, at the completion of a Phase I award SOLUTE will develop a minimum of three hardware and software architectures recommendations for use in a Phase II SBIR option. The five technical objectives are submarine MLS requirements, potential applications, security requirements, NOA requirements, and MLS architecture options.
