Abstract

With the advent of the Navy’s newest classes of all-electric vessels, the interdependence and functional correlation of the power plant with other mission-critical ship systems such as integrated cooling, weapons, navigation, air surveillance, and IT control network systems, maintaining optimal oversight and control of power distribution aboard ship becomes increasingly challenging. As the operational requirements during conflicts tax both the ability of the power system to supply resources to disparate systems and the ability of operators to make intelligent sense of the incoming data, the need for automated and semi-automated tools to provide enhanced Situational Awareness (SA) grows ever more crucial. AI/machine-intelligence technologies provide an opportunity to enhance human operators’ purview of complex systems-of-systems, and ensure that operators can make optimal decisions in a timely manner
