Research Institution
In conjunction with data set definitions and other background efforts, the Rite Solutions' team will investigate the feasibility of a Command Decision Support System (CDSS) providing high level advisory, decision support and human interface capabilities to ship's command personnel (CO and OOD). This system will be investigated using a highly structured Human Systems Integration (HSI) process and will be enabled by advanced AI-based decision support technologies (e.g., expert systems, neural networks, intelligent agents) and advanced 3D visualization technology. The system's envisioned capabilities will include enhanced situational awareness for command personnel with automated assessment, advice, warnings and alerts to maximize ship's safety and collision avoidance. Application of this technology will lead to reduced manning without compromising mission performance or safety of ship.
