(U) MISSION DESCRIPTION AND BUDGET ITEM JUSTIFICATION: A principal challenge to the U.S. Navy is to maintain the submarine fleet essential to defend American interests. The New Attack Submarine (New SSN) is being designed to meet the potential threats of the next century in a multi-mission capable submarine that has the ability to provide covert, sustained presence in denied waters. The primary goal of the program will be to develop an affordable yet capable submarine by evaluating a broad range of system and technology alternatives, and examining cost reduction, producibility improvement, and technical risk reduction. This Program Element (PE) provides the technology, prototype components, and systems to design and construct the New SSN and build in its Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence (C3I) System. This PE directly supports the following New SSN missions: (1) covert strike warfare; (2) anti-submarine warfare (3) covert intelligence collection/surveillance, indication and warning, and electronic warfare; (4) anti-surface ship warfare; (5) special warfare; (6) mine warfare; (7) battle group support; and (8) 90 day basic functions.

(U) JUSTIFICATION FOR BUDGET ACTIVITY: This program is funded under ENGINEERING & MANUFACTURING DEVELOPMENT because it encompasses engineering and manufacturing development of new end-items prior to production approval decision.

A. (U) MISSION DESCRIPTION AND BUDGET ITEM JUSTIFICATION: This project encompasses all the Hull, Mechanical and Electrical (HM&E) development efforts for the New SSN. The traditional distinct phasing of the design process has been replaced with a continuous concurrent engineering process called Integrated Product and Process Development (IPPD). This serves to maintain the focus of multi-discipline teams consisting of Government, shipbuilder and suppliers. This process is essential to achieve the maximum cost reduction possible in a low rate production environment. The thrust of these efforts will be to develop and apply HM&E system technologies which enable design of an attack submarine system. This approach to technology innovation will enable advances in military capability, while proactively controlling development and acquisition costs, impacts on ship weight and volume, and technical risks. Leveraging and capitalizing on existing technologies and vendor bases for existing components from SSN 688I, TRIDENT, and SEAWOLF will minimize both cost and risk. Varying degrees of re-engineering of existing systems is required to adapt them to the new submarine's requirements and minimize vendor risks of constructing a new ship with overlapping technology development. Newly developing technologies will be transitioned from ongoing industry and Government research and development programs where doing so will offer substantial affordability payoffs, without sacrificing military capability. HM&E development will support a FY 1998 lead ship construction contract award.

(U) CHANGE SUMMARY EXPLANATION:

(U) Funding: The FY96 decrease of $9,828K is for a program adjustment (-5,800) and the Jordanian rescission (-265), and SBIR (-3,763). Decrease for FY1997 is attributable to NWCF adjustment (-5,683), general R&D adjustments (-5,683), undistributed reduction (-624), and canceled appropriations reduction (-267). Decrease in FY1998 and FY1999 are attributable to NWCF carryover and rates adjustment (-12,594/-652) minor POM adjustments (-150/-124) modeling and simulation adjustments (-996/-937) reductions due to funding constraints (-5,000/0) acquisition center for excellence fair share adjustment (-127/-80) and inflation adjustment (-539/-534).

A. (U) MISSION DESCRIPTION AND BUDGET ITEM JUSTIFICATION: This project encompasses the top level systems development and overall integration into the ship of the New SSN C3I System (formerly referred to as Combat Systems), which includes multiple subsystems. The traditional distinct phasing of the ship design process has been replaced with a continuous concurrent engineering process called Integrated Product and Process Development (IPPD). This serves to maintain the focus of multi-discipline teams consisting of the Government, shipbuilder and suppliers. This process, which includes the C3I System efforts, is essential to achieve the maximum cost reduction possible in a low rate production environment. The scope of the system is expanded from Sonar and Combat Control subsystems to include Electronics Support Measures(ESM), Exterior Communications, Submarine Regional Warfare System, Navigation, Total Ship Monitoring, Imaging, Tactical Acoustic Communications, Radar, Navigation Data Distribution and Display (ND3), Interior Communications, Tactical Support Devices, Fiber Optic Cable Subsystem, and Special Purpose Subsystems, such as Battle Force Team Trainer and others. The Research, Development, Test and Evaluation funds identified encompass New SSN specific development efforts (not programmed in other program lines) including electronic integration as well as physical integration into the platform of the aforementioned subsystems.

(U) New SSN is implementing an acquisition and implementation approach based on Open System, COTS Non-Developmental Items or subsystems; leveraging on-going subsystems developments; and developing new subsystems when needed to satisfy New SSN requirements. The recurring cost of future C3I Systems are being reduced to meet the program's affordability goals. Modifications to many subsystems must be developed to: (1) reduce the shipbuilding and construction recurring costs through the use of COTS components; (2) use proven computer technologies to evolve to an Open System design; (3) enhance capabilities to support expanded operational requirements, reduced manning, and reduced shipboard component footprint.

(U) To meet the collective future threat, the submarine force must operate as effectively in littoral regions as it traditionally has in open ocean. Close coordination with surface battle groups and airborne units is essential to mission accomplishment. To support the New SSN mission, the following functional capabilities are provided or supported by the New SSN C3I System: (1) Passive and Active detection of multiple contacts, including early warning threat determination through processing and analysis of sensor data; (2) classification of sensor data for the purpose of identifying contacts; (3) localization (tracking) of contacts through target motion analysis; (4) preset, launch, and control of weapons and countermeasures; (5) improved communication and connectivity with other battle group elements, airborne units, and special operations forces; (6) incorporation of Vertical Launch System to enhance strike warfare; and (7) more effective covert surveillance through video imaging with onboard digital enhancement capabilities, and improved electronic warfare analysis capabilities.

(U) CHANGE SUMMARY EXPLANATION:

(U) Funding: The FY 1996 decrease of $1,884 is for the Jordanian Recission (-$121K) and the SBIR assessment (-$1,763K). The FY 1997 decrease of $9,526K is for undistributed reductions (-$2724K),NWCF adjustments (-$2,102K), C3I contract savings (-$7,000K), GAO prior year savings (-$4,700K) and COTS MPP (+$7,000K). The FY 1998 decrease of (-$40,210K) is attributable to New SSN Combat System Restructuring and Realignment(-$10,217K), ASTECS Program restructuring (-$15,200K), NWCF rate and carryover adjustments (-$6,879K), reduction due to low expenditures (-$5,000K), reductions for Technical Training Equipment (-$2,077K), Modeling and Simulation reduction (-$460K), minor POM adjustments (-$121K) and Acquisition Center for Excellence (-$61K), and undistributed reductions (-$195K). The FY 1999 decrease of $3,343K is also attributable to New SSN Combat System Restructuring and Realignment ($-5,470K), NWCF rate and carryover adjustments (-$731K), reductions for Technical Training Equipment (-$454K), Modeling and Simulation adjustment (-$402K), ASTECS Program restructuring (-5,549K), additional program adjustments (+$4,439K), adjustment due to low expenditures (+$5,100K), and Acquisition Center for Excellence (-$34K) and undistributed reductions (-$242K).

(U) Schedule: Not applicable.

(U) Technical: The sponsor directed a restructure of the ESM (formerly ASTECS) program. The restructure has reduced the technical scope and capability of the new ESM subsystem. The restructured ESM subsystem will meet the requirements of the New SSN Operational Requirements Document. The ND3 functionality had previously been provided by the submarine Navigation Sensor System Interface (NAVSSI), a backfit program. The sponsor cancelled the submarine NAVSSI Backfit Program in FY 1996.
