|Summary||Based on recent priorities for digital engineering strategy within DoD, there is an opportunity for coordinated research efforts tailored towards unmanned surface vehicles. Such efforts are focused on utilization of models to inform decision making based on a single source of authoritative truth, facilitating integration of new technologies and improvement to coordination and communication across stakeholders and engineers. In support of those objectives, this work proposes a coordination of research and design work as appropriate. The primary focus is the analysis of capabilities and functions for the Long Range Unmanned Surface Vessel (LRUSV). To expand that design and to demonstrate the utility of digital engineering as an integrating mechanism, this work will utilize the ship design experience and expertise of Navy engineers and the operational experience of NPS students to conduct innovative early stage design projects that examine both the operational and design considerations for unmanned surface vessels. The operational modeling conducted at NPS will focus on the full spectrum of vessel operations. In accordance with the digital engineering concept, that operational modeling will be conducted simultaneously with an expanded analysis effort, with an emphasis on a shared starting point and problem set. This will result in a more focused tradeoff environment, where operational experience and input informs the design effort of engineers and the design experience of engineers informs operational modeling and capability assessment.
