This project will use the cost model developed under the 2016 Panel Project, “Paradigm for Optical Networks in Ships: Flexible Communications Infrastructure.” The project will assess alternative optical network designs/architectures for real application(s) defined by team members (i.e. Lockheed Martin AEGIS), and use a simple test bed to verify the simulated results. Goals of the project are (1) application of the cost model and successful architecture selection and (2) verification of performance through a testbed demonstration.
