Sonalysts proposes to develop the Human Systems Engineering LighthouseTM (HSE LighthouseTM). The Lighthouse will consist of an HSE Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) and associated family of HSE decision support Business Services in support of the Navy Program Manager (PM), Office of the Chief of Naval Operations (OPNAV) Requirements Officer (RO), or Industry PM-level user. This effort will result in the development of a SOA decision-support tool suite based on the Human Systems Integration (HSI) integration framework successfully developed during Phase I. For Phase II Base period, we propose to identify high-level SOA requirements and then establish an HSE SOA network for development and testing. Once completed, Sonalysts will identify the specific requirements for implementation of an initial HSE Business Service within the Lighthouse. During the Option periods, we propose to extend the prototype Lighthouse functionality with additional HSE Business Services and if feasible, establish SOA connectivity with industry, the Navy, or both.
