Abstract
Not Available The Virginia Class Submarine (SSN 774) Program Office faces an unprecedented challenge in the development of maintenance mechanisms for what promises to be the most advanced and complex submarine ever developed. Drawing on our experience with software engineering; image compression, sound and video on ATM networks, and the Virginia class submarine program, Trident will develop an untethered, man-wearable computer system capable of providing NPES sub-system access equal to that available to NPES laptop systems. This includes full access to the Non-tactical Data Processing System (NTDPS) Digital Library. Additionally, the Maintenance and Telepresence System (MATS) will be capable of transmitting and receiving compressed audio and video over the Virginia class submarine's NTDPS local area network (LAN). Under Phase I of this SBIR, Trident will develop the requirements for the system, establish the system design, and produce a proof-of-concept demonstration. Phase II will extend the requirements based on program office feedback, further refine the design, and produce a full-scale prototype system. During Phase III of this SBIR a robust, fully tested, version of the system ready for use by the Virginia Class Submarine Program will be developed and delivered.
