Contract Number
4100437349 T&M (subcontract)

Advanced Sciences and Technologies, LLC (AS&T) staff has had the opportunity to provide continuous support to the Aegis Program via Lockheed Martin (LM) Maritime Systems and Sensors (MS2) for the past twenty three (23) years. Overall, this group of Management, Technical, and Engineering support personnel has provided this support since 1989, initially as a small business (Atlantic Science and Technology, Inc.) and later as L-3 Communications before forming Advanced Sciences and Technologies, LLC (AS&T) to again provide LM MS2 this support as a small business. The quality of AS&T’s Technical and Management team resulted in AS&T being awarded a contract on March 6, 2006, and again annually since then.

System & Software Engineering — Aegis/USCG Command, Control & Simulation
AS&T personnel have been providing system engineering support to the tactical, simulation, and test departments for over twenty-one (21) years. Specific task areas include Command and Control (C2), Radar Systems, and Aegis Combat System Interface Simulator (ACSIS) for U.S. Navy and FMS ship classes. Each of these areas covers all system engineering processes, starting with requirements investigation & generation, specification generation, Human System Integration Top Down Requirements Analysis (TDRA), test methodologies, test execution, and evaluation. AS&T system engineers are influencing design with HSI requirements and constraints associated with human performance and accommodations. Through modeling and prototyping, we identify human performance issues and concerns early in the acquisition cycle; define the role of humans in system operations; identify deficiencies and lessons learned; and optimize system manning, training, safety, survivability, and quality of life. AS&T engineers develop Enterprise Architectures that provide network-centric solutions in integrating Coast Guard Air, Surface, and Land assets within the overall federal, local, and foreign agencies.

AS&T engineers develop simulations in support of the U.S. Navy and USCG efforts. Tasks include requirements generation, computer equipment definition, test plan/procedure development, simulation software integration, support at several land-based test sites throughout the world, test support, scenario development, and acceptance/performance testing. Additional program status activities include earned value management system (EVMS) tracking and status on all tasks within the Statement of Work (SOW) of each Integrated Product Team (IPT). Additionally for the ACSIS and Deepwater simulation programs, AS&T has specific software engineering tasks that encompass several functional areas of the program. AS&T engineers are involved in the entire software development process from top-level design and analysis through integration and test. They utilize current Object Oriented Analysis and Design (OOAD) techniques using many different computer languages including C++, Java, Pascal, FORTRAN, and CMS-2.
