Naval Integration (NI) Defined
NI Branch Role
Transportability and Deployability DoD Instruction
Naval Integration is the systems engineering process in which Marine Corps expeditionary warfare systems that support of the full range of military and humanitarian/disaster relief operations are designed and developed with the shipboard operational environment considered.
This includes not only the effective and efficient embarkation and debarkation of expeditionary systems but also its safe and effective operation, as required, once aboard.
C4I system developers must consider the integration of Marine Corps communication systems into shipboard Tier 1N tactical network and RF architectures, leveraging Navy service-oriented capabilities
Areas of HM&E design focus for NI include, as a minimum, equipment configuration, size, weight, power, HAZMAT, heat, ventilation and corrosion prevention as required.
NAVAL INTEGRATION IS NOT JUST TRANSPORTING EQUIPMENT…
In working closely with the requirements developers, establish and maintain a well-defined, formalized process mandated by Marine Corps directive that ensures Naval Integration and Transportability activities, through Systems Engineering Technical and System reviews, support Marine Corps Expeditionary Warfare programs both afloat and ashore.
NI CONSIDERED FROM
CRADLE TO GRAVE
C4I Integrations Issues
Technology refresh rates/budget cycles/MarCorps’ task org nature
Challenge to influence all afloat USN programs and initiatives IOT preserve USMC equities
Need to influence/engage acquisition and modernization processes at key decision points
MAGTF Afloat Baseline essential to maintaining requirements and modernization initiatives, but not formally recognized by N6, or USN in general
Hull, Mechanical & Electrical (HM&E) Integration Issues
Most programs address NI requirements on their own. Programs spend valuable $$$ on task associated with attaining certification and assessment approvals.
Most programs don’t seriously consider NI until late in the program (near LRIP or FRP) based on perception that it may have significant cost, schedule and performance implications that weren’t budgeted for...
Program offices will potentially commit more resources for ECPs late in their program than if engineering was addressed at early reviews.
For larger ACAT programs, most GO-level review board (MRB/MROC) members are keenly aware of the importance of integrating their ExpWarfare programs with the Navy early in the development process and hold program managers accountable at each major review. We need to support these PMs as early as possible.
MCOTEA: Need NI specifications built early into TEMP and assessed at OTRR…latest
NEED TO PRESERVE RESOURCES WHILE MAINTAINING WARFIGHTING CAPABILITY
All elements of the MAGTF are out growing their lift capacity
MOA for Naval Expeditionary Warfare IPT, signed Feb-Mar 1996, 8 signatories at DASN and Service GO/FO level.
MOA between PEO Expeditionary Warfare and commander, MCSC signed 18 Jul 00:
“… to ensure Navy and Marine Corps Program Managers and their staffs coordinate their requirements and efforts throughout the acquisition process to ensure successful Naval Integration.”
Fall of 2006, ACMC added weight as additional “Fingerprint of Lift.”
NAVSEA 21 Letter dtd 8 Jan 08
MarCorps asked to provide listing of all “current and planned” POR vehicles and equip to be deployed aboard assault echelon ships
Create loading envelopes for vehicle decks of amphibious ships based on generic vehicle load configuration
To what degree does the increase in size/weight of MarCorps ground equipment affect the restricted stability status of amphibious ships?
MCSC currently does not have the tools necessary to address implications of granting waivers that affect our lift capacity…
ABV coming in overweight by 500 to 1000 lbs.
Waiver requested by requirement developers
MDA to assess
SYSTEM OF SYSTEMS APPROACH NEEDED FOR DEVELOPING WARFIGHTING CAPBILITY
Current DoD direction specifically addresses Transportability for the Services
DoDI 4540.7 tasking to MCSC via CMC
Para. 220.127.116.11. “Execute the Marine Corps Engineering for Transportability and Deployability Program, obtain mode-specific transportability certifications from Component Transportability Agents, and review the transportability section of capabilities documents, specifications, and other appropriate materiel requirements documents.”
“If applicable assure proper certifications for; Air, Rail, Highway, External Air Transport, Internal Airlift, Airdrop, Common User Sealift and Amphibious shipping”
ONLY POLICY DIRECTIVE ADDRESSING INTEGRATION OF EQUIPMENT
Currently, no Navy or Marine Corps directive exists that supports requirement or equipment developers with addressing NI in the acquisition process
The acquisition community is in general agreement that there’s a need to:
Develop and Insert NI capability requirements in acquisition documentation at all phases
Formalize NI in Expeditionary Force Development System (EFDS)
Formalize NI process in DoN and DoD
Policy directives that should support NI
MCO 3900.15, EFDS
DoDI 4540.7, Operation of the DoD Engineering for Transportability and Deployability Program
New initiative: NI Order for Expeditionary Warfare Requirements and System Development.
Leverage DoDI on Transporatibilty
NAVSEA and NAVAIR ship integration SMEs input is essential
IPT established to develop the directive
MUST FORMALIZE PROCESS!
