Improved Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) effectiveness MSSE Capstone Project
MetadataShow full item record
The protection of our nation's ability to operate military forces freely and safely across the world's oceans remains a paramount goal of the United States Navy. The NUWC Division Newport cohort applied the disciplined practice of systems engineering processes to analyze and improve upon Anti-Submarine Warfare effectiveness in support of Carrier Strike Group operations. The cohort sought customer feedback to understand and formalize the perceived needs and formulate and rank candidate solutions to meet these needs. The systems engineering team, seeking solutions that provide improved Carrier Strike Group defense from undersea threats, generated 14 alternative architectures for analysis. The alternatives that passed feasibility screening underwent performance and cost modeling, reliability screening, and risk analysis to help provide a basis for comparison. The analysis demonstrated that a distributed barrier of active sensors placed and maintained by a Littoral Combat Ship provided an effective detection and engagement solution. The team further concluded that coupling the barrier with development of advanced capability improvements to the platform-based active sonar provided an effective layered defense approach. This rigorous process demonstrated the value of the systems engineering process and identified key areas for continued investigation to support continued United States Navy dominance of the undersea domain.
