Services will include design, development, testing,
reverse engineering, technology insertion / refreshment, engineering
services, field engineering services, and system support.
The ISIS provides mission critical, all-weather, visual, and electronic
search, digital image management, indication, warning, and platform
architecture interface capabilities for attack submarine (nuclear propulsion)
(SSN) - SSN688 (Los Angeles class); SSN 21 (Seawolf class); submersible,
ship, guided, nuclear (SSGN Ohio class); and SSN 774 (Virginia class)
submarines with potential for ship, submersible, ballistic, nuclear
(SSBN) (Trident class) and potentially other submarines.
ISIS rolls-up existing components and near-term capabilities, and provides
a robust architecture for efficiently inserting future capabilities
as they become available for the Technical Insertion, Advanced Processing
Builds, Submarine Warfare Federated System process, including items
leveraged from the SSN 774 (Virginia) class photonics program.
