Spring 2014 GRASP Seminar: E. Michael Golda, Navy Sea Systems Command Carderock Division, “A Brief Overview of United States Navy Machinery Automation Challenges”

April 18, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Abstract: A large naval warship ship is the most complex
structure built by man.  The technology
trends over the last 70 years have made automation a necessity for controlling
the components, systems, and integrated systems of systems that make up a
warship.  The presentation will provide a
brief introduction of the ship as a system of systems.  The evolution of the Navy’s automation to
intelligent agent-based distributed controls will be described.  In addition, opportunities for educational
support and joint research with the Navy opportunities will be discussed.
