Abstract:

The Navy must design and engineer ships and systems for the Sailor at the onset of the design and acquisition cycle. A seamless and comprehensive fusion of people, hardware, and software is or must be- a principal goal of all engineers and designers, program managers and acquisition specialists, logisticians, and operators. If we seek to maximize operational effectiveness and ensure mission success as our ships go in harms way, while at the same time we strive to minimize total ownership costs, we must design and engineer the total system for maximum warrior performance. Most fundamentally, that means ensuring that the human is taken into account, up front, in system and platform design and engineering. This paper addresses the charter, roles, tasks, and progress of NAVSEA O3 during the past year, as it proceeds to ensure the total integration of the Sailor into the systems and ships the Navy is designing, engineering, and acquiring.
