Abstract:

The Naval Underwater Systems Center, located in New London, Conn., needs an Information Flow and Analysis System IFAS for the Sonar Operational Training and Assessment Program SOTAP. This study addresses the requirements for sonar operational programs. It discusses basic differences between weapons and information systems, and proposes a systems approach for the acquisition of a basic management information system. It presents the information system alternatives available to the SOTAP management and describes the existing information system, Personnel Training and Evaluation Program PTEP. It discusses PTEPs FY 78 incorporation into the Navys Versatile Training System VTS and how PTEP may be expanded and changed under VTS to include the sonar rating aboard Fleet Ballistic Missile FBM submarines with the end goal of improving ultimate user sonar technicians knowledge and performance of sonar weapons systems.
