The concept, design, and instantiation of a Next Generation Integrated Communication System represents a clear opportunity for the DoD and Navy to leverage and intelligently apply advances in communication methodologies and communication endpoint technologies, future Navy shipboard Open Architecture (OA) processing and network infrastructures, and the services-oriented architectural model. Objective research, investigation, and review of these technologies individually, and the specification of a broadly integrated services-oriented ICS presents an excellent opportunity to address key Navy Next Generation ICS and platform objectives: « Advanced concepts of operation « Adoption of a Flexible and Open Architecture framework for ICS « Improved communication information assurance & security capabilities « Enhanced Mission Effectiveness and Total Ship Management « Reduce Total Ownership Cost (TOC) Rite-Solutions¡¦ direct experience with OA systems, reliable and robust commercial communication and transaction systems, future DoD/Navy shipboard architectures, and our related experience in Human System Integration (HSI) and Information Assurance (IA) domains provides a unique and innovative approach to next generation ICS issues and opportunities.
