TSC has extensive experience supporting Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) programs. Our primary contributions are technical systems engineering and integrated logistics support, where we assist with timely development, installation, and integrated logistics support for the Navy’s BMD ships.
TSC has been a strong technical participant in Aegis BMD programs over the past 15 years, beginning with the Navy Area program, continuing through the Navy Theater-Wide program, and currently with Aegis BMD. TSC provides radar system analysis to Aegis Ashore program. TSC supports the Navy Aegis BMD Program Office with technical oversight and through contributions to Navy radar, RF discrimination, engagement, and specification review teams with primary focus on the AN/SPY-1 radar system.
Since the promulgation of the Presidential mandate in 2002 requiring BMD capability in US Navy ships, TSC has served as the principal liaison between the Aegis BMD Program Office, Integrated System Engineering Agent (ISEA), and Naval Surface Warfare Commands (NSWC) in managing the Integrated Master Schedule of installation and systems integration logistics support from IDO baseline to the present installation and fielding of BMD baselines. TSC supports PEO IWS 1.0 in transitioning each program from development into Navy owned and operated baseline capabilities.

TSC supports investigation of issues critical for successful engagement support and development of techniques to mitigate potential performance-limiting factors. We have performed numerous detailed analyses to predict radar system capabilities and to demonstrate ways to optimize radar performance. Analyses are performed using high fidelity scenario simulations developed by TSC.
TSC provides Reliability, Maintainability and Availability logistics and engineering analysis and modeling to optimize operational availability (Ao) using our supply chain model, NAUTILUS, and Readiness Based Sparing modeling techniques. For example, the AN/SPY-1 Radar’s observed Ao has consistently outperformed its designed specifications from the AN/SPY-1A to the current AN/SPY-1D(V) because of efficient sparing and obsolescence analysis. The demonstrated efficiency, for example, of the AN/SPY-1D has shown a 3000% decrease in failures per million hours of usage compared to its design as a result of efficient RM&A modeling.
