Integration and Interoperability (I&I)
This edition of the Leading Edge features articles describing NSWCDD's work in pioneering integrated solutions for the Surface Navy as part of the overall Navy I&I Enterprise. This edition is structured to highlight our specific contribution to the two primary areas of focus, Developmental I&I and Operational I&I. You will see that we have parlayed our traditional systems engineering disciplines that develop highly integrated and interoperable shipboard combat and weapon systems with an expanded view to the overall warfighting mission at the Naval and Joint Force levels. By aligning more closely with the operational community, the technicians and the tacticians are now working much more closely together to a common mission goal.
