Abstract:

Not Available The introduction of Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) products into ship systems represents an enormous challenge that impacts virtually all elements of Integration and Test (I&T). While the use of COTS products is not a new concept to the Navy, its application to highly elaborate weapon system developments such as the USS Virginia (SSN774) Class New Attack Submarine (NSSN) Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence (C3I) System surpasses earlier complexity. Adding to this complexity is the fact that the majority of the NSSN Non-Propulsion Electronics System (NPES) subsystems, of which the NSSN C3I subsystems are a subset, will be interfaced together for the first time at the Command and Control System Module Off-Hull Assembly and Test Site (COATS) in the shipyard at Electric Boat (EB). Following the I&T efforts at COATS the NPES subsystems will be installed on the submarine platform which will require some additional I&T effort. I&T at the COATS and on the NSSN platform will undoubtedly be fraught with technical and resource challenges that will demand new and innovative I&T techniques and concepts. The goal of this SBIR is to determine the I&T techniques and concepts that meet those challenges.
