ITE Team Products
Examples of how ITE has brought together and supported Teaming relationships to satisfy Navy requirements
With Simsmart Inc
Ship Production and Design Software Tools
Ship Crew Training Systems
Example Partnership: May 2008, Team 3eTI - ITE submitted the designs for a family of Hand Deployed Situational Awareness Sensors for Shipboard Damage Control under SBIR 07-132 featuring hand throwable and remote controlled maneuverable devices that sense and transmit DC data & images to the DC Team.
Wireless Networking Systems
3eTI provided overall research direction and brings its extensive experience with the US Navy where 3eTI is currently the leading supplier of secure wireless networking for supporting naval interior wireless communications with high data rate transmission of voice, video and sensory data and secure wireless connectivity. 3eTI has installed, tested and proven Technology Readiness Level 9 (TRL9) WLAN equipment both onboard Navy ships and on Navy bases. 3eTI has fielded it’s 3e525A-3 wireless access points, 3e-030-2 security server devices, and 3e-010F-2 wireless local area network (WLAN) client devices for a complete WLAN solution on various Navy vessels including USS HOWARD, USS MASON, USS COLE, USS Ex-PAUL FOSTER (currently being utilized as a test platform by the Navy for a variety technologies). 3eTI has also fielded a WLAN solution within the well-deck of LPD-17 and contributed to a SPAWAR approved wireless System Security Authorization Agreement (SSAA) for the LPD-17 Class and for DDG Class WLAN.
ITE principals served as DC subject matter experts having participated in the development of the initial Battle Damage Control Systems (BDCS) prototyped aboard USS Anzio (CG-68) in the early 90s, the first peer to peer LAN-based DC plotting system between all Repair Party stations, and later the Navy DCS (Damage Control System) variant for LPD-17 as well as for international navies such as Japan, Korea and NATO navies. ITE principals were also involved in initiating the NAVSEA development and full NAVSSES testing of the Standard Monitoring and Control System (SMCS) based on the DDG-51 Class ships that became the foundation for the distributed microprocessor control system, SMCS with DCS installed on the first Smart Ship USS Yorktown (CG-48), with resulting efficiency driven crew reductions and a revolution in machinery / damage control systems capabilities. Variants of the SMCS / DCS capabilities have flowed into many US Navy ships as well as to US Allied Navies around the world through products sold by CAE, now L3. ITE continues its relationship with Navy damage control by its promotion of US Navy products such as 3eTI Wireless, DCTMS, FCCS and HSSS to Allied navies.
With OAK Management
OAK Management and ITE partnered in a NAVSEA PMS 430 SBIR to demonstrate the Navy's first Total Ship Training System (TSTS) based on a notional CG-47 Class ship. ITE provided the training system simulation concept of operations as well as the integration with the training objectives including the Battle Problem scenario for the "damage" injected in the physics model of the ship, and the Navy EOSS, EOCC and CSOSS procedures for responding to the "damage" and restoration of combat capability. DSR integrated the Navy Battle Force Tactical Trainer (BFTT) Combat System simulation and instructor evaluation system. Simsmart provided the real time physics model of the "CG-47" HM&E / DC systems including compartmentation models for progressive flooding, fire and smoke spread. OAK provided their Damage Control Action Management System (DCAMS) including PC and wearable wireless ruggedized PDAs for plotting student actions and report training results. The system was demonstrated in an International Networked training session conducted from I/ITSEC including the the USA, Australia, UK, Netherlands and others in "Task Force" operating in the Pacific. Australia was so impressed by the results that they order the world's first Total Ship Model in physics so that the RAN could support training and engineering design as needed.

Intellectual Knowledge and Condition Monitoring Systems for Marine Vessels
December 2008, ITE and Futron are planning to introduce Fatigue Detection technology into the operations of high risk occupations such as flight crews, train operators, truck drivers, and nuclear power plant operations. See the description on the IRE home page and the link to the FATIGUE SYSTEMS page.
