The current approach to system restoration for the AEGIS Combat System (ACS) is largely manual and does not cover all functions.  Recent successes with virtualizing the AEGIS Weapons System (AWS) indicate that this technology could be leveraged by combat systems to increase redundancy and improve operational availability.  COTs virtualization implementations provide Dynamic Resource Management tools built to make failover more efficient, but each vendor uniquely delivers this capability blocking the opportunity for a standard interface.  Introducing a Combat System Dynamic Resource Manager (CSDRM) that provides a common front-end to the functions that these COTs tools provide ensures not only that the users of these virtualized tactical systems are insulated from changes to the hypervisor but also that metrics can be collected on the usage and performance of the COTs tools to identify areas for improvement.  IDT’s experience with virtualizing the AEGIS Weapon System (AWS), analyzing combat system performance, and delivering common test capability to disparate customers across the DoD is what will enable the successful adoption of CSDRM: a front-end for common DRM functions that can be easily and quickly consumed by the Navy through a robust SDK and IDT’s mature virtualized combat system development and test environment.
