COMPANY OVERVIEW

Outstanding Innovative Product(Nominee)

Underwater Communications Networks (UCN) Model Library

Underwater communications and sensor networks, particularly those involving mobile and potentially unmanned assets, are becoming increasingly important to current and future US Navy operations. In support of sustaining manned and unmanned operations in the underwater domain, SCALABLE developed the Underwater Communications Networks (UCN) Model Library. The UCN library is the first high fidelity tactical networking product developed for undersea acoustics and optical communications. The UCN Model enables analysis of underwater network effectiveness, efficiency, resiliency and self healing performance, and provides communications visualization and statistics monitoring tools to help ensure mission accomplishment. Unmanned Underwater Vehicles are performing more and more missions in support of US Navy worldwide operations, and the UCN Library enables requirements, acquisition, and operational... Read More

Underwater Communications Networks (UCN) Model Library

Underwater communications and sensor networks, particularly those involving mobile and potentially unmanned assets, are becoming increasingly important to current and future US Navy operations. In support of sustaining manned and unmanned operations in the underwater domain, SCALABLE developed the Underwater Communications Networks (UCN) Model Library. The UCN library is the first high fidelity tactical networking product developed for undersea acoustics and optical communications. The UCN Model enables analysis of underwater network effectiveness, efficiency, resiliency and self healing performance, and provides communications visualization and statistics monitoring tools to help ensure mission accomplishment. Unmanned Underwater Vehicles are performing more and more missions in support of US Navy worldwide operations, and the UCN Library enables requirements, acquisition, and operational communities to evaluate and identify optimal means of planning, executing and supporting those missions.
 
SCALABLE’s acoustic and optical communications models significantly enhance the networking and communication simulation capabilities of EXata, and the Joint Network Emulator (JNE) Library, a GOTs product and expands the library of channel and communication models into this increasingly important operational domain. The resulting capability is compatible with tools developed for JNE to allow for modeling and simulation of Navy multi-domain concepts of operations that integrate Forward Deployed Energy and Communications Outposts (FDECO) and other undersea assets with existing communication networks. SCALABLE’s network models support operations in a Disrupted, Disconnected, Intermittent, Limited Bandwidth (D-DIL) environment throughout all physical domains and cyberspace. SCALABLE's simulation and emulation software can be readily federated with other simulators making it the perfect choice to evaluate underwater network resiliency and performance, and their impact on Navy missions.
