Abstract : The Navy is equipping improved Los Angeles class nuclear-powered attack submarines (SSN-688I)2 with the new AN/BSY-1 combat system. The AN/BSY-1 program evolved in 1985 as a result of the restructuring of the Submarine Advanced Combat System program. AN/BSY-1 is designed to support SSN-688Is in conducting combat operations in antisubmarine, antisurface, strike, mine, and other warfare missions. Thus, a fully capable combat system successfully developed and tested, is critical to SSN-688Is accomplishing their missions. The Navy contracted with the International Business Machines Corporation to concurrently develop and produce 23 AN/BSY-1 systems, 3 maintenance and team trainers, and a software maintenance facility.
