  • SLIDE 1: Our demonstration today will show you how we are developing the capability to provide the warfighter real-time situation awareness in an ever changing threat environment. Before we begin the demonstration, I want to take just a few minutes to discuss how and why we came up with our recommended solution.
  • Depending on where the warfighter is located in the world there will be new and unpredictable threats. These threats use unconventional tactics that can change on a daily basis. And many times these threats have the ability to use the new technologies better then we do. You might ask why is that?
  • Its because our navy goes to sea with systems that are out, outdated dated, that are 4 to 8 years old. And to enable these older systems to meet the current operational demands the navy continually adds additional applications and networks to the legacy systems With the commercial computer technology advancing at its current pace, it is making it very expensive or impossible to buy spare parts to maintain existing hardware and networks on ships. Last generation’s technologies and processes won’t work in delivering next generation results. So how do we deal with this problem? A better question is, how does the fleet deal with this problem?
  • The Warfighters struggle in the volume of unassociated raw multi-int data They face ambiguities and inconsistencies resulting from multiple collects and conflicting data reports Valuable information from multi-media formats including imagery are manually integrated to track information. This Warfighter has to Monitor the available Information to understand: Current friendly and enemy situation Status of Current Operations Planned events and problems that may need to be resolved Integrating Situation-Relevant Information Intelligence Status-of-Forces Current Operations And Developing Predictive Assessments Projection of situation into future Near-term Courses of Action (COAs)
  • An integrated battlespace Visualization capability that provides the operator the ability to share information and situational awareness that accelerates command and synchronized efforts in the battlespace. One that enables the operators to produce coherent information, fusing many separate facts into a common picture of the battle space. A systems that enables collaborate with each other to synchronize operations. A system that is flexible enough that it can swiftly adapt to the information demands of a particular operational scenario. (UDOP) By “virtualizing” how users view the computing infrastructure, DoD can begin reducing technical and administrative barriers to sharing resources, and provide more agile and scalable support for information sharing across the GIG.
