Research Institution
Not Available We propose to conduct an investigation of current and developing technologies related to wireless communications and networking for the purpose of identifying Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) technologies and products that can be used to replace existing legacy submarine communications equipment on VIRGINIA CLASS (SSN 774) submarines. In order to accomplish this we will implement a process that prioritizes user requirements, provides a means of quantitatively comparing key parameters of candidate technologies, and then applies the results of the analysis to create decision support data. This investigation will depart from past studies of this type because, in addition to identifying systems which fully meet all VIRGINIA CLASS (SSN 774) functional, environmental, and cost requirements, we will focus on identifying systems which provide the greatest capacity for achieving interoperability with the evolving global commercial wireless networks. We believe that by obtaining a system that provides seamless interface with the commercial communications infrastructure, as well as meeting all current and projected military requirements, the likelihood of premature obsolescence or eventual stovepiping of the system will be avoided.
