This proposal seeks to develop the basis for extending the 72-inch Physical Open Architecture (POA) enclosure solution to U.S. Navy destroyers (DDG 51) and cruisers (CG 47). This will provide: the ability to easily insert cutting edge technology as it evolves; commonality and extendibility of components among systems and ships; flexibility in varying physical system configurations; a reduction in acquisition and life-cycle costs by buying components at the drawer; and reduced test time and costs.
