The current submarine environment employs a Learning Management System (LMS) on the tactical network (TacLAN), a second LMS on the non-tactical network (SubLAN) known as the Afloat Integrated Learning Environment (AILE), a LMS like application on SubLAN known as Seaware which is deployed to host Submarine On Board Training (SOBT), and on SSBNs a fourth LMS to host content specific to the SSBNs mission. Finally, there is the Nosis application suite, which includes the Continuing Training and Qualifications Software (CTQS), and is used to track both nuclear and non-nuclear sailor qualifications. Currently none of these systems communicate with one another. Progeny proposes to consolidate the afloat LMS into a single Learning Record Store (LRS) that is integrated across both the tactical (TacLAN) and non-tactical (SubLAN) environments. Progeny will develop a cross domain solution which will allow learning experience data to pass through Enclave Guard from TacLAN to SubLAN as well as developing a capability to preserve this data it during a downgrade. Progeny proposes to investigate ways to host content from the LMS supporting SSP training content for SSBNs, which will further reduce the administrative burden on the sailor and consolidate learning experiences into a single authoritative source.
