Abstract
The Naval Surface Warfare Center Port Hueneme Division (NSWC PHD) requires a redesign of the Surface Warfare Engineering Facility (SWEF) to act as a central hub for real-time Navy fleet combat systems distance support from the applicable In-Service Engineering Agent (ISEA). This study produced two architectures for the SWEF-Hub. The first architecture is implementable within a short time and largely creates the central communications station and details activities that it will perform. The second architecture, implementable in the long-term, employs advanced technological concepts including machine learning and condition-based maintenance to help the warfighter perform effective and timely equipment preventative and corrective maintenance, provide the health status of every ship to the departments within NSWC PHD, and streamline decision-making processes and provide enhanced distance support. In addition, SWEF-Hub will provide the capabilities to allow secure data analysis, system software updates, and predictive system analysis. The goal of the SWEF-Hub redesign is to provide secure, efficient use of distance support resources that will result in increased productivity of maintenance and support personnel, increased system availability, increased situational awareness concerning the status of critical systems, and improved customer service to the warfighter.
