Abstract
The Maritime Operations Centers (MOC's) are an internal part of the Navy's Maritime Headquarters 9MHQ) concept for Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) structure. The purpose of this study was to determine if the mission of the MOC could be accomplished with the existing C4I systems assigned. By tracing functions to systems, gaps were identified which created a foundation to investigate whether systems currently in development were available to meet theses gaps. In some cases, candidate C4I systems were proposed to fill gaps. System functionally overlap was also noted. As a by-product of our research into the MOC concept and analysis of it's required functions and candidate component systems, we have proposed a methodology for future work in the design of the MOC architecture. Through the use of requirements analysis tools, we have been able to structure the requirements, functions and proposed systems of the MOC architecture in a way that automated the tasks of functional analysis and system architecture design. Future work on the MOC requiremnts and architectures should utilize these or similar automation.
