Abstract
NAVY DECISION MAKERS NEED AN ACCURATE AND RELIABLE ASW/C3I MODEL TO EVALUTE THE WARFIGHTING SUPPORT PROVIDED BY PRESENT AND FUTURE ASW COMMAND, CONTROL, COMMUNICATIONS AND INTELLIGENCE SYSTEMS. THE PRIORITY OF THIS REQUIREMENT IS INCREASING AS THE NAVY CONSIDERED ALTERNATIVE ARCHITECTURES FOR COUNTERING SOVIET ADVANCED SUBMARINES. THE ASW/C3I MODEL WILL PROVIDE VALUABLE INSIGHTS INTO THE INPACTS OF ORGANIZATIONAL RELATIONSHIPS, NEW SYSTEM CONCEPTS AND DESIGNS, AND ALTERNATIVE TECHNOLOGY INVESTMENTS. TO PROVIDE THESE INSIGHTS, THE MODEL MUST COMPREHENSIVELY ADDRESS SENSORS, SENSOR DATA COMMUNICATIONS, FUSION AND DATA ANALYSIS TO INCLUDE TRACK CORRELATION AND TARGET CLASSIFICATION AND DATA BASE MANAGEMENT, MAN-MACHINE INTERFACES, THE HUMAN DECISION PROCESS INVOLVING TACTICS AND ASW RESOURCE ALLOCATIONS, COMMAND COMMUNICATIONS AND ASW ENGAGEMENT RESULTS. THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES PRESEARCH'S APPROACH FOR DEVELOPING AN ASW/C3I MODEL USING AN OBJECT-ORIENTED PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE (SMALLTALK). THE PROPOSAL FIRST OUTLINES THE ELEMENTS AND FUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIPS ATTENDANT WITH PROVIDING C3I SUPPORT OF THE ASW MISSION. IT NEXT DESCRIBES A PROGRAM FOR CONDUCTING A LITERATURE SEARCH OF PREVIOUS EFFORTS IN EACH AREA, ANALYZING FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS, ASSESSING RISKS INHERENT IN DEVELOPMENT OF THE MODEL AND INITIATING THE TOP LEVEL DESIGN OF THE MODEL.
