Research Institution
In-Depth Engineering hereby proposes the Advanced Shore Side Intelligent Support Technology (ASSIST) innovative research program to respond to a need for a Long Distance Remote Maintenance Capability aboard U.S. Aircraft Carriers. The ASSIST system will facilitate a remote maintenance system that reduces auxiliary equipment Mean Time to Repair and saves the cost and lost time required for SME on-site assistance. ASSIST is composed of Video Chat, Ship Interface, Machinery Control System (MCS) interface, Data Capture, Portable Data Acquisition (PDA), Collaboration and Documentation functionality. The existing ship networking and Non-classified Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRnet) are used to facilitate communications between the ship and the shore. Together these functions provide an SME the ability to perform long distance remote maintenance of auxiliary systems.
