White Paper: Managing Life Cycle and Network Interoperability Challenges on Navy Platforms

Learn how commercial open computing strategies used by social media giants and advanced manufacturing practices employed by the automotive and logistics industries can be leveraged by the Navy to:

  • Improve interoperability
  • Lower costs
  • Enable technology upgrades

Whitepaper Excerpt

Navy combat, C4ISR [command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and
reconnaissance], and machinery control systems are characterized by a wide range of programs, all of which have their own system architecture, configuration, and composition, mostly program-specific and irrespective of adjacent systems. This disconnected environment creates roadblocks to cost-effective technology refresh and generates institutional inefficiencies, resulting in increased program expense in the long term and less effective warfighting capabilities overall. However, open computing strategies – such as those initiated by social media giants Facebook and LinkedIn – as well as manufacturing practices common in the auto and freight transport industry can be leveraged by the Navy embedded computing industry to solve the interoperability and long-term cost challenges created by these disparate systems.
