Program and project management, organization analysis and planning, project analysis and performance appraisal, logistics analysis, information management, program/project documentation, and multimedia graphics support services for undersea warfare sonar systems, ASW combat systems, and 21st Century programs.
Design, integrate, and maintain high visibility RDT&E and acquisition program schedules, e.g. the Virginia Class Non-Propulsion Electronics System (NPES) Top Level Schedule and the Submarine Communication Support System (SCSS) Master Schedule. The latter is an innovative, "big picture" graphic management tool that integrates SSN/SSBN ship construction and overhaul availabilities with the acquisition, design, test, and integration schedules of 75 communications functions. This resourceful planning document delineates functional evolution, throughput forecasts, submarine ECS link forecasts, future technical-base transitions, and rack arrangements on a time-phased basis from FY97 through FY12 for SSN 688, SSN 21, NSSN, and SSBN 726 class submarines. These master schedules are included in the SCSS Development and Execution Plan.
