How Digital Twinning Is Helping Improve Submarine Communications

G2 Ops describes how model based systems engineering (MBSE) is being leveraged within the Navy to drive up the reliability, maintainability, and availability (RMA) of submarine systems.


VIRGINIA BEACH, VA, January 18, 2023 – The U.S. Navy is battling the length of time it takes to upgrade weapon systems due to low RMA with digital twin modelling. Submarine communication systems are too crucial to the Navy to deploy unproven test units, but it is too costly to create physical test versions for each of them. A digital twin can be used to predict system reliability at various levels. Populating the model with real-world historical data regarding when, where, and how systems failed gives analysts an authoritative source for identifying trends across the fleet. The Navy is also using simulations to test the warfare platform’s key operational threads. Military programs should all be using this modernization approach for their own systems to boost RMA and speed modernization timelines.
