Future U.S. Navy ships will operate with a crew that may be half or less of current ship crew size. To maintain readiness with a reduced crew size, tools are needed to support enhanced Sailor productivity on-ship. Everyday workflow will continue to need a minimum contingent of crew, however special circumstances to arise that require access to Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), and providing the sailor/maintainer with effective tools that provide the data feeds necessary to support reach back to Distance Support will leverage the experience and training of on-ship and off-ship SMEs. Cybernet has developed the Shipboard Wireless Maintenance Assistant (SWMA) Platform to support maintenance and logistics. Our approach to the program"s problem is to leverage this hardware platform and to focus on development and integration of Navy processes and software elements into the maintenance, local and remote, workflow to support effective, efficient problem solving on non-standard, undocumented problems. This data should be recorded and made available for future occurrences of the same or similar problem.
