Secure Open Architecture Open System Technologies for Tactical Networks
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The Naval tactical submarine environment consists of a complex set of computing requirements unique in many aspects to the environment. However, along with the uniqueness of some requirements comes other more common requirements found across many of the large Department of Defense (DoD) programs. One of the common aspects is the need to handle data at multiple levels of classification. While the tactical submarine environment has effectively implemented a periods-processing model for this task, there are other processing models that can more efficiently handle multiple levels of data due to the transition tasking for periods processing is a resource and time intensive operation. What is needed is the functionality, stability, and performance of a real-time system combined with the ease of management and capacity of an enterprise data center. The solution must adhere to Open System standards in accordance with the direction of the Navy's future technology development and acquisition initiatives. Open Systems allow a federated group of developers each developing different applications, to all work together. Overall, Open Systems reduce cost by increasing competition, and also leverage standards based capabilities to ensure interoperability and supportability.
