Abstract:

RSVP was a proof-of-concept and technology demonstrator, whose purpose was to provide Navy research and development risk mitigation for the DD21 program. The three year, 15 million dollar, BA 6.3 program was sponsored by the Office of Naval Research ONR Ship Hull, Mechanical, Electrical Systems Science and Technology Division Code 334 The high risk, high payoff ATD was significant to the Navy and DOD in demonstrating an intra-compartment, wireless shipboard sensor network. This will enable reduced I manning, improve damage control, and lower total ownership cost for Navy ships. RSVP researched, developed, integrated and tested a functional system that incorporated many technologies of varying levels of maturity. All program demonstrations were completely successful, including a VIP tour and demonstration of the RSVP system aboard CG61 on May 24, 2001 in Annapolis, MD.
