Abstract
RECEIPT BY TRIDENT SUBMARINES OF OTH-T DATA CURRENTLY AVAILABLE TO OTHER FLEET USERS MAY REDUCE THE POSSIBILITY OF DETECTION DURING EXECUTION OF THE SSBN-S PRIMARY MISSION OF STRIKING LAND TARGETS FROM LONG RANGES. ALSO, OTH-T DATA WILL ENABLE THE SSBN TO BE SUCCESSFULLY EMPLOYED IN A SECONDARY FAST-ATTACK MODE AGAINST POTENTIAL SURFACE AND SUBSURFACE TARGETS. THE MAIN OBJECTIVES OF THE PROPOSED EFFORT ARE TO IDENTIFY THE BEST METHOD OF PROVIDING OTH-T COMMUNICATIONS CONNECTIVITY TO TRIDENT SUBMARINES AND TO PROTOTYPE TRIDENT-SPECIFIC OTH-T FUNCTIONS WITHIN TIBURON-S TACTICAL DATA PROCESSOR (TDP), THE ADVANCED TACTICAL WORKSTATION (ATW). ATW WILL SATISFY THE OVERALL REGUIREMENT FOR AN OTH-T DATA PROCESSING CAPABILITY FOR TRIDENT SUBMARINES. ATW IS A LOW COST, SMALL SIZE, HIGH PERFORMANCE SYSTEM THAT PROVIDES THE TOOLS NECESSARY FOR SURVEILLANCE DATA CORRELATION, TRACKING, FUSION, DATA MANAGEMENT, AND DISPLAY. OTHER TASKS WILL INCLUDE PERFORMING A SITE SURVEY OF A TRIDENT SUBMARINE IN PREPARATION FOR A FUTURE INSTALLATION, A DEMONSTRATION OF A PROTOTYPE OTH-T COMMUNICATIONS AND DATA PROCESSING CAPABILITY USING ATW WITH UPGRADED SSBN FUNCTIONALITY,AND DEVELOPMENT OF A FINAL REPORT.
