The C4ISR Command Lab is SPAWAR's East Coast focal point and supports the concept of a network-centric engineering environment. Simulated battle group and full-scale fleet exercises are directed from this centrally located lab, providing a systems integration environment for network management, data collection and analysis, large-scale systems integration and fleet support.
Using the backbone technical infrastructure, command assets are dynamically orchestrated. Interfaced systems create operational configurations without physical relocation of equipment or personnel. Higher levels of integration are explored and perfected through use of this powerful tool; conversely, modeling and simulation allow evaluation of alternative system configurations before actually building new systems.
The command lab allows visitors to experience many of SPAWAR's capabilities in one place, just as a fleet operator would. It is the ideal environment for exploring and expanding the netcentric warfare model, and for defining the next generation of warfare.
With these attributes, the command lab provides total solutions to complex customer requirements, quickly and economically.
