The mission of the Forge is to provide combat capabilities to the Surface Force Fleet at the speed of relevance. To meet this need, the U.S. Navy is transitioning the monolithic AEGIS Weapon System code-base to a loosely coupled, modular, low propagation cost, and scalable set of software components for the Integrated Combat System (ICS), as implemented on the U.S. Navy Surface Force fleet, U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), and Foreign Nations Surface Combatant ship classes. The Forge is where the U.S. Navy accomplishes this mission alongside Industry.
SOLUTE provides Mission Application Teams to support the Forge’s objectives.
Software developed at the Forge by Mission Application Teams will deploy across the U.S. Navy Surface Force, including multiple Surface Combatant ship classes, such as Cruiser (CG 47-class), Destroyer (DDG 51-class), Littoral Combat Ship (LCS-class), Guided Missile Frigate (FFG 62-class), Large Unmanned Surface Vessel (LUSV-class), U.S. Coast Guard (USCG-class) Cutters, and Foreign Nations Surface Combatant ship classes, as well as U.S. Navy Carrier (CVN-class) and Amphibious (L-class) ships.
With a skilled end-to-end Agile-based software team, platform developers, software architects, and program management, SOLUTE supports the instantiation of a Develop-Secure-Operations (DevSecOps) approach to achieving continuous integration, continuous delivery, continuous deployment, and continuous security.
