Abstract
CURRENT SUBMARINE COMBAT SYSTEM ARCHITECTURES REFLECT A WEAK LINKAGE FROM OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS TO IMPLEMENTATION. ARCHITECTURES RANGE FROM THOSE WITH LARGE CENTRAL COMPUTERS TO THOSE WITH CLUSTERED DISTRIBUTED PROCESSORS. SINGLE POINTS OF FAILURE, DATA BOTTLENECKS, AND PROCESSOR CONFLICTS RESULT FROM ARCHITECTURES THAT DO NOT HAVE OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS AS THEIR BASIS. THE EFFORT PROPOSED USES AN EXPERT IN SUBMARINE OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS AND COMBAT SYSTEM RELIABILITY MODELING TO FORMULATE AN ARCHITECTURAL MODEL. IT IS EXPECTED THATTHE MODEL WILL RESULT IN A BASIC ARCHITECTURE THAT WILL INCLUDE ROBUST WORKSTATIONS ABOUT A REDUNDANT CENTRAL DATA HANDLER. THE MODEL WILL ITERATE ARCHITECTURAL PARAMETERS ABOUT THIS CORTCEPT TO DETERMINE THE OPERATIONALLY SIGNIFICANT CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SYSTEM.
