A multi-dimensional approach is needed to address the problem of distributing large volume data from LCS (or other Navy platforms) to remote locations, such as shore-based support sites. Advanced compression methodologies, which combine multiple individual compression algorithms with the concept of representing time-series data via mathematical representations which result in very little information loss, can create up to 99% reduction in the volume of data to be sent off-hull. However, in addition to these technologies, approaches such as the intelligent prioritization of outbound data and effective management of the available outbound bandwidth will be applied to create a holistic solution to the problem. All of this can be done with a clear eventual transition path in mind ? the software architecture already planned for use on LCS.
