2 OUTLINE  Overview of Integrated Topside (InTop) Program  InTop heritage – The Advanced Multi-Function RF- Concept (AMRF-C) Program  Multi-Function Electronic Warfare (MFEW) Program  Navy/Industry InTop Open Architecture Study Group – organization and study results  Digital Array Radar (DAR)  Conclusions 2

3 3 WHAT IS INTEGRATED TOPSIDE ?  Dominate the RF spectrum – Dynamic management of RF spectrum – Control Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) and increase RF availability – More capability per ship through optimized aperture placement and space/weight/power improvements – Software defined functionality  Enable innovation through a RF Open Architecture – Broader industrial base for government and prime contractors – Modular open RF design (apertures and electronics) to facilitate best of breed technology and cost effective upgrades – Continuous improvement in capability through software and hardware spirals  Create affordable systems that are scalable across platforms – Scalable architecture to meet multiple platform needs – Common maintenance, training, and logistics pipelines across platforms with attendant reduced manpower vs. numerous stove-piped program Operation & Support costs Open Architecture Scalable Systems Multi-function apertures simultaneous beams simultaneous functions

5 5 THE ADVANCED MULTIFUNCTION RF CONCEPT (AMRFC) Demonstrated Functions  Comm: X-Band DSCS Satcom Link, Ku-Band Commercial Satcom Link, Ku TCDL  Navigation Radar  Electronic Warfare: Electronic Surveillance, Electronic Attack  Calibration  ONR initiated AMRF-C to determine the possibility of using wide-band arrays to meet multiple RF functions simultaneously  ONR used an open architecture approach to RF systems to allow multiple vendors to participate and pave the way for scalable, upgradable systems  The Multi Function Electronic Warfare Future Naval Capability (MFEW FNC) resulted from this effort

6 6 MFEW DEVELOPMENT GOALS  Meets key Electronic Surveillance capabilities: High Probability of Intercept (HPIO), Precision Direction Finding (PDF) and Specific Emitter Identification (SEI)  Capable of supporting additional RF functions  Supports other platform configurations, including back-fit  Technology transitions to fleet  Architecture that is modular, scalable and open RIMPAC 08 onboard USS Comstock MFEW

10 OPEN ARCHITECTURE SUCCESS 10  Separate contract let to DRS to develop a RFC SRU that met the open interfaces of the Northrop Grumman (NG) MFEW ADM architecture  DRS developed the SI-9161 RFC in parallel with their SI-9155 enabling ONR to leverage DRS investment in the SI-9155 for the NGC compatible SI-9161  The lessons learned on one configuration was leveraged to both – the Si-9161 development efforts, collaboration with ONR and NG was very valuable to the success of the SI-9155 – The modular and forward thinking design of the two receivers enables the features between the SI-9161 and SI-9155 to effectively be interchangeable  The DRS RFC was used by Lockheed Martin (LM) during their RIMPAC testing – LM was able to integrate the SI-9161 in their ES architecture within a week – LM proposed the SI-9161 as part of SEWIP Block 2 – LM is also using the SI-9161 SEWIP Block 1B HGHS

11 INDUSTRY SUPPORT 11  Ensure broad industry involvement in open architecture and standards development – Visits to and from industry – NDIA workshops (Industry and Navy participation)  Approximately 20 companies/40-50 individuals  8 November 2006 – Overview and feedback on IT INP  2 May Business case  28 June 2007 – Requirements and architecture  2 August Organization to define standards – Integrated Topside INP RFI responses received  Initiated industry co-led modular open RF architecture definition process in FY08

17 CHALLENGES, RISKS AND IMPLICATIONS Confirmation that SRU/CSCI interfaces and specifications are accurate and sufficient for acquisition from alternate sources Confirmation that SRU/CSCI interfaces and specifications are accurate and sufficient for acquisition from alternate sources Navy must provide protection of contractor intellectual property even as it demands compliance with MOSA Navy must provide protection of contractor intellectual property even as it demands compliance with MOSA The price for lower total life cycle cost could mean higher initial acquisition cost The price for lower total life cycle cost could mean higher initial acquisition cost Standards selection can be risky and problematic requiring greater knowledge on part of the government Standards selection can be risky and problematic requiring greater knowledge on part of the government Interface standards evolve with time. Difficult to project the extent a given standard will endure or should be replaced Interface standards evolve with time. Difficult to project the extent a given standard will endure or should be replaced Standards-based architectures tend to change the focus of systems engineering from design to integration Standards-based architectures tend to change the focus of systems engineering from design to integration Shorter commercial product lifetimes create logistical support challenges Shorter commercial product lifetimes create logistical support challenges 17

18 POTENTIAL OPERATIONAL PERFORMANCE BENEFITS OF OA BASED TOPSIDE SYSTEMS The ability to adapt to evolving requirements and threats The ability to adapt to evolving requirements and threats Accelerating the transition from S&T into acquisition and deployment (make technology refresh an asset, not a liability) Accelerating the transition from S&T into acquisition and deployment (make technology refresh an asset, not a liability) Ensuring that the system will interoperate with all the systems with which it must interface without major modification of exiting components Ensuring that the system will interoperate with all the systems with which it must interface without major modification of exiting components Improving the extensibility for meeting new requirements and for introducing new capabilities Improving the extensibility for meeting new requirements and for introducing new capabilities 18

19 DIGITAL ARRAY RADAR PREMISE/GOALS  ONR’s government owned and integrated Open Architecture Digital Array Radar sunsets in FY12  Open Architecture test bed enables investigation of alternative solutions and risk reduction  Core government team with competency to design, build, and test next generation multi-mission radars (similar to SPQ-9, SPS-49, and APS-137 programs of the past)  Improves government ability to trade requirements throughout the development cycle  Competition at the subsystem level (vice TSPR) widens the pool of vendors able to compete  Constrain contractor costs by evaporation of sole source  Government develops and owns requirements and specifications  Government competitively selects subsystem vendors  The government has no business model impediments to the extensive adoption of relevant open commercial standards and specifications 19

21 CONCLUSIONS  ONR has a solid S&T foundation to support MOSA based systems of the future  OA is a real enabler for making systems more affordable –Leverage commercial investment; –Enhance access to cutting edge technologies –Enhance commonality and reuse across platforms –Enable increased competition  Industry is a willing partner and its involvement is essential in defining MOSA based architectures and standards “Specifying modular architecture and open software standards is essential to allow spiral development of optimal systems design - constant evolution in capabilities should be expected.” - JASONS Summer Study Report
