Applications

  • Tactical Cryptologic Systems (TCS): TCS is a suite of related tactical cryptologic systems ranging from trainers and simulators to exploitation and direction-finding systems. Systems include the Cryptological Unified Build (CUB); Battle Group Passive Horizon Extension System (BGPHES)/Common High Band Data Link (CHBDL); Outboard; Ship Signal Exploitation Equipment (SSEE)/Cryptologic Carry-On Program (CCOP); Cooperative Outboard Logistics Upgrade (COBLU); Combat Direction Finder (CDF); Cryptologic On-Line Trainer (COLT); and Advanced COMINT Voice Processor ATD.

  • United States Coast Guard (USCG) Support: National Distress and Response System Modernization Program (NDRSMP); Radio Direction Finding (RDF)/Digital Selective Calling (DSC) Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration (ACTD); Deepwater Project; District Command Center Analysis; and USCG Research and Development Center Advanced Technology Analysis.

  • Relocatable Over-The-Horizon Radar (ROTHR): Provides tactically significant wide-area surveillance information to military forces.

  • New Platform Construction Support: DDG-51 (Arleigh Burke Class/AEGIS Destroyer); DD-21 (Next Generation Surface Fire Support Platform); LPD-17 (San Antonio Class/Amphib, "Gator Freighter"); LHD (Wasp class/Amphibious Assault Ship); CVN/AOE (Nimitz and Supply Classes); RDT&E for new platforms: (CV(X), JCC(X) - Next C2 Flagship, T-ADC(X) - Dry Cargo Stores Ship; and the USCG Deepwater Project.

  • Integrated Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) applications: Integrated ASW; littoral surveillance; and theater and missile defense. Approaches include process and operations analysis; fusion and integration technologies; concept of operations impacts; concept modeling and simulation; and advanced technology demonstrations and fleet exercises.

  • Integrated Antisubmarine Warfare: Integrate USW sensor systems/assets across platforms; demonstrate improved detection, classification, tracking, and environ characterization performance; develop and demonstrate operating procedures; quantify the warfighting payoff through modeling, simulation, and testing; identify high-payoff areas for S&T investment; and transition technologies and methodologies. Approaches are split into three tasks; Task 1 will develop virtual simulator, design operational guidelines, and assess warfighting payoff. Task 2 will develop fusion architecture, adapt fusion and data assimilation algorithms, and leverage collaborative technology. Task 3 will acquire system data for developments, plan, prepare, conduct two field tests, record data for assessments, and conduct hot wash-up.

  • Deployable Autonomous Distributed System (DADS): DADS technology issues include fire control quality tracking; automatic target classification; dynamic control of fusion processes to improve common tactical picture; fusion architecture designs; and fusion metrics.

  • Collaboration Services: Fully implement Joint Force Air Component Commander (JFACC) collaboration vision though an AITS-complaint collaboration server; increase capability of applications by enabling/providing collaboration; tightly integrated environment aggregating users and agents, data objects and applications in JFACC contexts unpinned by workflow; provide platform independence/interoperability; facilitate insertion of DARPA-related technologies; and maximize payback of other JFACC applications and technologies through collaboration.

  • Naval Simulation System: Develop a Naval multi-warfare campaign-level constructive simulation for analysis, operational support, and exercise support. Approaches include object oriented, Monte Carlo; explicit C4ISR representation; reactive decisions based on local situational awareness; and interface to operational Command and Control Systems.

  • Data Fusion Technologies: Advancing the state-of-the-art in sensor and data fusion by developing and implementing fusion technologies for strategic, operational, and tactical decision makers in Navy, Joint, and Allied operations. Approaches include process and operations analysis; data fusion test-bed; multiple hypotheses concepts; fuzzy-conditioning and fuzzy controllers; modeling and simulation for concept validation; and advanced technology demonstrations and fleet exercises.
