NSRP ASE Investment: $149,366
The project team will investigate the use of standard foundations to mount combat systems equipment onboard Navy ships that can support changing technology and equipment, often encountered late in the construction schedule during the combat systems installation process, as well as combat system upgrades occurring over the life of the ship.
The project goal is to reduce combat systems installation time and cost associated with initial equipment installation, equipment up-grades, and late technology insertion. The project will focus on reducing engineering hours associated with foundation design through the utilization of standard foundations and analysis methods.
