Navy Weapons Direction System - BAE Systems

MSIS provides support to BAE Systems in Rockville, MD in the areas of System Design Engineering, Software Code Engineering, and System and Software Test Engineering on the PEO IWS SM and SM International Programs projects.

In the mid-1990s, the Australian government commenced SEA 1390, also known as the FFG Upgrade Project. The project includes improvements to the combat and fire control system, the sonar suite, and the air defense missiles. The upgrade was for four ships and intended to extend their service lives to approximately 2020.

MSIS designs, modifies, develops, writes and implements software programming applications, and participates in the testing process through test review and analysis, test witnessing and certification of software. We perform the development and maintenance of the data analysis tool (PCDRP) for Australia, Korea, Canada, and Taiwan combat systems. For FMS Australia, we designed and developed PCDRP for the WDS SM-2 Adjunct Processor (SMAP). The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) uses the SMAP to fire SM-2 missiles on their frigates.

The development of PCDRP includes new design requirements for RAN, enhanced GUI, internal global database (Block Book) listings, integrated COTS Microsoft Excel capability and countersolutions. The integrated Excel capability allows for automatic generation of charts to visualize the data graphically and to create presentation materials. The countersolutions provide an independent solution model for the data analysts to use in verifying requirements quickly. MSIS also supports testing and certification for the Canadian and Taiwan SMILES units. The SMILES unit is a replacement for the legacy CMTU and RD-358A magnetic tape hardware. The task involved development of host re-imaging software from VAX MTASS to SMILES compatible format.
