Abstract
ASSETTs Phase II base effort under SBIR N05-149 provides three key products which result from the documented methodology and processes established during Phase I: (1) Requirements associated with the Combat System of the Future (CSoF) developed from our robust methodology and captured in an Initial Capabilities Document (ICD) and Cognitive Specification, (2) CSoF architectural prototype and associated demonstration, and (3) an AI feasibility study update. Our proven methodology integrates cognitive engineering, systems engineering, and mission driven operations as inputs to the process for providing revolutionary approaches and in parallel, reducing manning in the submarine command center during all operations including battle stations. In addition it provides a streamlined approach for managing automation and adding the functionality required as the Submarine takes on a broader mission set and improves its connectivity to Force-Net. Our approach is being implemented in concert with each Phase I award winner for this topic and will be performed within a collaboration formalized and titled MARS. We will reshape how problems are viewed and how solutions are presented. Our collaboration will complete with a joint demonstration completed by the integration of each companys efforts.
