Data Management Complexity Simplified

Managing Information Overload More Effectively on Fixed and Rotary-Wing Aircraft

The multiple independent sensors on board today's fixed and rotary-wing platforms deliver more useful information to operators continuously and in real time. Therefore, operators must be able to view all the information in real time to make tactical assessments and provide accurate and useful situational awareness intelligence to in-field personnel and commanders. Adding displays or increasing the number of operators is often not feasible and partially integrated systems create additional complications. A fully integrated solution built around common workstations that leverage information layering techniques provides operators with complete control of intelligence information.

Increasing the Operational Effectiveness of Land Combat Vehicles

Requirements for an intelligent, integrated and scalable Vehicle Electronic Architecture (VEA)

Although many military organizations have developed system standards, there is no real solution to the network and system integration challenge on land combat vehicles. The ideal solution must enable a vehicle to fight and move more effectively while leveraging the power of all the disparate, independent systems on board. It must integrate seamlessly with and leverage the power of a networked command and control environment, and effectively integrate with the voice and data communications systems used by dismounted personnel.

Sustaining Capabilities and Mission Availability

Key Requirements for a Performance-based In-Service Support Program

Prior to the 1980s, military organizations had internal teams dedicated to managing every aspect of In-service Support (ISS) for all platforms. Throughout this period, most of these teams struggled with three major challenges associated with sustaining effective ISS: a responsive supply chain, available engineering services, and effective training. These challenges still exist today and, to truly address these challenges, military organizations need a single integrated ISS program, which provides access to engineering and logistics support capabilities that can be applied to overall platform life cycle support requirements, addressing the key noted challenges...
