Abstract:

This report details the approach and progress during Phase I of the Submarine Operational Automation System SOAS program, culminating ina system demonstration. A summary of the problem and approach, both to the design of system as a whole and to the development of individual SOAS subsystem functions, will be presented. The results of pursuing these approaches and the strategy for the next phases of SOAS will be discussed. The objective of the working demonstrations was to show the potential effectiveness and technical feasibility of a future full-scale, knowledge-based command and control system for advanced submarines to enhance the tactical and operational performance of the platform. the system incorporate the following specific features The capability to perform or assist is useful and meaningful submarine command-level functions The incorporation and demonstration of innovative and state-of-the-art computer systems, software, and displays The development, incorporation, and adaptation of innovative and state-of-the-art expert- andor knowledge-based shells, software, and high-level languages to the submarine command system situation Effective man-machine displays and interfaces and the use and incorporation thereof The compilation and development of a suitable knowledge base of submarine information A system configuration suitable for expansion, revision, and upgrade and interface to ship systems and possibly other expert- or knowledge-based systems.
