Abstract
Building on the successful research performed in Phase I of this SBIR, Ridgetop will develop cost-saving technologies to assess and improve the state-of-health of IT network components and services. The approach taken involves a four-step process: (1) regularly query network hardware and software via existing measurement points, (2) process the extracted data with advanced diagnostic and prognostic algorithms, (3) alert Navy technicians to detected performance degradations and impending failures, and (4) guide those technicians through troubleshooting and resolving the problem. This technology will be encapsulated in a prototype software application, NetworkBIST™. This will provide major benefits in reducing the logistics and maintenance costs for afloat network systems.
