Lincoln Battle Group Deploys with NAVSEA Technologies

Friday, August 09, 2002
A variety of Naval Sea Systems Command programs will make their debut with the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) Battle Group, which recently departed for a six-month deployment in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The battle group deployed with several Navy, next generation technologies, including the Man Overboard Indicator (MOBI) on Lincoln and several other ships in the battle group, Naval Fires Network (NFN) throughout the battle group and the Area Air Defense Control (AADC) aboard USS Shiloh (CG 67). The deployment gives the Navy an opportunity to assess these technologies and look at new ways to improve efficiency and warfighting capabilities using current resources and the latest technology. MOBI is a personal water or manually activated alarm system designed to improve the safety of Sailors involved in operational situations that create a potential for falling overboard. MOBI uses a series of transmitters to aid in the detection, location and recovery of Sailors who fall overboard. NFN is a network-centric warfare family of systems that provides near real time intelligence correlation, sensor control, target generation, precise target coordinates, moving target tracks, mission planning and battle damage assessment capabilities to support more timely engagement of time critical targets. This capability will allow Lincoln to share a greatly improved battlespace picture very quickly with other ships in the battle group, and with Army and Air Force sites in the Southwest Asia area of operations. NFN consists of three existing systems: Naval Sea Systems Command's Tactical Exploitation System - Navy (TES-N), the Joint Services Imagery Processing System - Navy (JSIPS-N) under Naval Air Systems Command, and the Global Command and Control System - Maritime (GCCS-M) from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, along with improved interfaces among them. AADC is a state of the art, integrated, Theater Air Defense (TAD) battle management system, which provides air defense planning and current operations support capability. AADC enhances situational awareness, reduces planning time, minimizes mission redundancy, minimizes waste of air defense assets, reduces the risk of fratricide, and allows weapons systems to be used to their full range of capability. The Lincoln Battle Group will relieve the USS George Washington (CVN 73) Battle Group upon arrival in the Arabian Gulf. Source: NAVSEA
