Research Institution

Program Executive Office Submarines (PEO SUB) requires initiatives that help it achieve its Virginia Class platform cost reduction objectives as well as contributing innovative technologies to the Submarine Based Strategic Deterrent (SBSD) development and legacy classes (SSGN). To this end, PEO SUB requires technology initiatives that contribute to the goal of controlling multiple sensors using a common open architecture solution thereby contributing to volume-based cost reduction, mast consolidation and the resulting cost reduction. A key to this initiative is the development of an isolation layer between the inboard systems and the outboard sensors. Thereby enabling the Navy to quickly and efficiently substitute alternative masts based on need. In addition, operation and maintenance costs reduction will be fostered. Improved abilities to efficiently manage mast spares including masts from alternate suppliers is a high priority need. The engineering development models (EDM) resulting from this Phase II SBIR will be used to demonstrate an approach to common mast control. This effort will significantly reduce overall cost of ownership for all applicable classes and supports the Reduced Total Ownership Cost (RTOC) initiative.
