Abstract
Impact proposed an embedded System for Automated Test and Integrity Verification (SAT-IV) that automatically monitors and performs corrective/repair actions for network, hardware and software components of a submarine’s combat system in real-time. In the base period of this Phase I effort we developed a proof-of-concept system that can be embedded into an existing submarine combat system and can monitor important features of network, hardware, and software components. A suite of signal analysis and reasoning engines establish the integrity of the distributed system. An automated repair action is taken to rectify issues. In the Phase II effort, these concepts will be applied towards the subsystems on Tactical LAN. Working with ASFT, we will demonstrate the technical merits of our approach. We propose that the system go through simulation based testing at the Undersea Warfare Collaboration Analysis Fleet Experimentation within the first year. In the second year of the Phase II program, we will expand the concepts on the DM, WCS and the SONAR. We will work closely with ASFT to meet the Information Assurance (IA) and TI-08/APB-07goals. In the subsequent six month option period, extensive testing and certification process for embedding these technologies into the combat system will take place.
