Rockwell Offers Brochure On Ship Information Management Systems

Ship Information Management Systems (SIMS) is the subject of a free brochure from Rockwell International of Anaheim, Calif. The publication points up the problem of managing shipboard data since today's warship is an aggregate of increasingly complex subsystems.

These sophisticated and data-intensive systems generate such large quantities of information that new techniques for data control and management are now imperative.

Rockwell's Ship Information Management Systems are discussed as a cost-effective answer to today's proliferation aboard U.S. Navy warships.

By means of a unique Rockwell- designed multiplex data bus, all of the information functions for command, control, and communications are carried out—rapidly, accurately, and totally without interference— by a single, integrated system.

A list is given of the advantages provided by Rockwell's SIMS: design flexibility, improved acquisition times, easy conversion and modernization, high reliability, economical functional reconfiguration, reduced training, and reduced manning.

The Rockwell-developed Shipboard Data Multiplexing is featured as the key to SIMS' ability to efficiently handle the multiple functions of a modern ship's information processing. This system is presently being installed onboard the USS Olendorf (DD 972), for technical and operational evaluation.

The brochure is illustrated with photos of the Olendorf and various Rockwell International equipment.
