The objective of this project was to apply a systems engineering approach to explore concepts for augmenting naval capabilities in remote sea locations using a standard Systems Engineering methodology coupled with Design for Lean Six Sigma tools. Because of increased challenges related to complexity, cost, and timing, our engineering approach focused on finding failure modes early and implementing effective countermeasures. Following requirements analysis and identification of needed functions, the project team synthesized candidate solutions that introduced new concepts and also exploited known programs of record within the Navy, the Coast Guard, and the Marine Corps. These included Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs), Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs), the aerostat Multi-Function Phased Array Radar, automation, and a Remote Sea Station. Results from analysis and simulations showed that an Automated Super-Highway Concept (ASHC) addressed the immediate need. The proposed approach combines the capabilities of the systems above to control the battle space in an effort to divert or destroy all non-friendly entities in the areas of interest. This approach also allows for persistent presence and analysis of the enemy movement while reducing the naval task force already assigned to patrol these areas.
