A PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THE SHIPS SYSTEM INITIATIVE DEVELOPMENT (SID) PROGRAM IS TO IDENTIFY SHORTFALLS OR INEFFICIENCIES IN CURRENT OR PROJECTED SHIP SYSTEMS BASED ON A RIGOROUS, DISCIPLINED CAPABILITY ASSESSMENT OF US FORCES VERSUS ENEMY FORCES IN FUTURE (YEAR 2000) BATTLE GROUP ENVIRONMENTS. THESE SHORTFALLS CAN BE ELIMINATED BY DEVELOPING NEEW TECHNOLOGIES AND SYSTEMS TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS IDENTIFIED IN THE SID PROCESS. POTENTIAL SOLUTIONS TO ELIMINATE THESE SHORTFALLS MUST DE IDENTIFIED, ANALYZED FOR POTENTIAL MILITARY WORTH AND APPLICABILITY, TESTED AND EVALUATED IN THE IN THE SID BATTLE GROUP ENVIRONMENTS AND PROPER J JUSTIFICATION DOCUMENTATION, SUCH AS A JMSNS, PREPARED IN ACCORDANCE WITH DOD INSTRUCTIONS TO INITIATE THE NEW PROGRAM INTO THE R&D PROCESS THE SID PROGJRAM ALSO IDENTIFIES NEW SHIP CONCEPTS FOR ENTRY IN THE EXPLORATORY DESIGN PROCESS AND WILL INTEGRATE THESE NEW R&D SYSTEM INITIATIVES INTO ONGOING SHIP DESIGN AND ACQUISITION PROGRAMS. THE DATA BASE OF INFORMATION DEVELOPED IN THE SID PROCESS PROVIDES THE FOUNDATION FOR AN IN DEPTH ANALLYSIS OF EACH POTENTIAL SOLUTION TO DETERMINE: (1) EXPECTED PERFORMANCE CAPABILITIES TO MEET THE MILITARY REQUIREMENT, (2) TECHNICAL RISK, AND (3) SCHEDULE RISK.
