Ship / Class 2D/3D CAD-Physics Dynamic V&V Ship Design / Production & Lifecycle Support Modeling Domains should be Complementary throughout the Design & Life Cycle Support Process 11 www.ITEinc.US From NAVSEA highlights: SIMSMART Inc. has successfully modeled 8 piping systems for Avondale. These models have revealed system deficiencies which may not have been noticed using traditional flow network calculations (spreadsheets). They have also made obvious several system enhancements that save money and production time while still meeting the requirements of the contract. For example, the chilled water model was used to show that a portion of the main had to be increased in size from 5 to 6 inches due to the unanticipated demand that developed in this area of the ship through the detail design process. Without this modeling capability it is entirely possible that this shortfall in the system may have gone unnoticed until such time where fitting the larger main into the overhead would have been impossible. This is just one example where this exceptional tool has more than paid for itself. Daniel S. Van Voorhis US Navy - LPD 17 Machinery IPT Dated ~ Oct 2001 12 www.ITEinc.US 3.

www.ITEinc.US Technology Readiness Level (TRL) Definitions Technology Readiness Level Description 1. Basic Principles observed and reported. Lowest Level of Technology Readiness. Scientific research begins to be translated into applied research and development. Examples might include paper studies of a technologys basic properties. 2. Technology concept and/or application formulated. Invention begins. Once basic principles are observed, practical applications can be invented. Applications are speculative and there is no proof or detailed analysis to support the assumptions. Examples are limited to analytic studies. 3. Analytical and experimental critical functions and/or characteristic proof of concept. Active research and development is initiated. This includes analytical studies and laboratory studies to physically validate analytical predictions of separate elements of the technology. Examples include components that are not yet integrated or representative. 4. Component and/or breadboard validation in laboratory environment. Basic technological components are integrated to establish that they will work together. This is relatively low fidelity compared to the eventual system. Examples include integration of ad hoc hardware in laboratory. 5. Component and/or breadboard validation in relevant environment. Fidelity of breadboard technology increases significantly. The basic technological components are integrated with reasonably realistic supporting elements so that it can be tested in a simulated environment. Examples include high fidelity laboratory integration of components. 6. System/subsystem model or prototype demonstration in a relevant environment. Representative model or prototype system, which is well beyond TRL 5, is tested in a relevant environment. Represents a major step up in technologys demonstrated readiness. Examples include testing a prototype in a high fidelity laboratory environment, or in a simulated operational environment.
7. System prototype demonstration in an operational environment. Prototype near, or at, planned operational system. Represents a major step up from TRL 6, requiring demonstration of an actual system prototype in an operational environment, such as an aircraft, vehicle, or space. Examples include testing the prototype in a test bed aircraft. 8. Actual system completed and flight qualified through test and demonstration. Technology has been proven to work in its final form and under expected conditions. In almost all cases, TRL represents the end of the true system development. Examples include developmental test and evaluation of the system in its intended weapon system to determine if it meets design specifications. 9. Actual system flight proven through successful mission operations. Actual Application of the technology in its final form and under mission conditions, such as those encountered in operational test and evaluation. In almost all cases, this is the end of the last bug fixing aspects of system development. Examples include using the system under operational mission conditions. 32 www.ITEinc.US
