Research Institution
This SBIR focuses on researching and selecting a new, better, and cheaper digital processing architecture for inclusion within an existing submarine tactical system. Although VME has already saved the government millions of dollars in development costs compared to the cost of producing full-mil, specialized hardware and software, there is yet another step in the cost reduction process. The commercial market is today producing highly capable, low-cost system solutions which, now that the COTS concept has been proven out, can perform many of the tasks which VME is doing today, and can perform those tasks cheaper. This development effort should start as early as possible, both to leverage savings in systems not yet developed but planned, and to assess the market's ability to support system development in the near term.
