Making Capability Insertion
More Affordable
• Computing Environment Open Architecture
– Isolation of HW/SW
– Commercial standards
– Commercial middleware for data transfer
• Data Rights
• Warfare System Functional Architecture
– Simplify the system integration by organizing the combat system architecture
functionally
– Capture WS/CS data model
– Isolate the sensors/weapons changes from CMS
– Reduce the changes made to core combat system
– Reduce testing
– Reduce certification cost
• Align the System Engineering model with Business and Acquisition model
– One without the other will not produce the desired outcome

Future Warfare Systems
• Systems are becoming increasingly complex contributing to
high cost of:
– Development
– Integration
– System Sustainment
• As warfare systems become more integrated
– Individual systems require less complexity
– Individual platforms can be specialized for narrower functionalities
– Overall system capability increases
• Warfare systems must be designed for Interoperability
– After the fact interoperability is expensive
• Data model for Warfare System Architecture makes the
integration effort easier

In Service Warfare Systems
• Systems are becoming obsolete, contributing to high cost of
– Sustainment
– Upgrades
• Systems are
–
–
–
–
Stand alone
Specialized, dedicated hardware, closed Interfaces
Hardware and software are tightly coupled
Cost of obsolescence management is increasing as a function of time
• When Business Case allows
– Replace troubled functionalities with COTS and OPEN standard design
– Reduce the sustainment cost
– Reduce the future upgrade cost

SEWIP Block 2 Competition
Lessons Learned
• Leverage ONR ADM Project
– Prior to the Block 2 competition ONR had an ADM contract for MFEW
– ONR ADM effort was competed and matured several critical
technology elements to TRL 6 with GPR on most of hardware and
software
– Technology Demonstration phase was achieved by leveraging from
ONR MFEW ADM development.
– Unsuccessful bidders for the ONR MFEW competition continued to
invest their own IRAD to remain competitive for future Block 2
competition
– Providing the MFEW GPR data as GFI with the Block 2 RFP resulted
in a more robust competition
SEWIP Block 2 Competition
Lessons Learned
• Leverage the Naval Open Architecture Contract Guidebook for Program
Managers
• Though the Government cannot demand Data Rights, provided the
option for offerors to price Data Rights and included evaluation criteria
on that option in the RFP
– All offerors addressing the Data Rights option
– An award with Unlimited Data Rights at no cost for all SEWIP Block 2
• Providing this data as GFI to future competitors for the SEWIP Block 2
Full Rate Competition, as well as follow-on life cycle support efforts,
will result in lower TOC

Summary
• Capability insertion must be more affordable
• We must develop the ability to meet tomorrow’s threat
• Our systems will be more integrated and interoperable
– Utilize every single platform asset in the warfare system
• OA approaches are the key enablers to meet tomorrow’s
threat affordably
