Abstract
A systematic evaluation of multiple sensor array handling system concepts is proposed in which the performance of the current systems is used to establish a baseline. All attributes of the existing system are defined. All attributes of the proposed systems are evaluated. The scoring and weighting functions are derived from review of existing test and failure analyses performed on the existing systems. The evaluated concepts are scored and ranked and presented to the Navy for final selection. The selected concept is more evaluated in a second round evaluation effort that is used to define all of the attributes of the system design. The second round evaluation effort results in the definition of the system that will be scale prototyped in the Phase II effort.
