Service Management Integration

Open Architecture

LYNXTM is an open architecture environment enabled by flexible data-driven application program interfaces for "plug-n-play" integration of COTS and NDI products. When coupled with LinQuest's integrated Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and collaborative 3D immersion tools, MBSEi and 3DataLinQTM, LYNXTM is a game changer for accelerating the acquisition cycle.

Evolutionary Acquisition

This architectural framework facilitates a MBSE approach for rapid prototyping, early demonstrations, full-scale systems integration, and life-cycle sustainment. Operators and acquirers can evaluate a full spectrum of capabilities during the Material Solutions Analysis phase, assess programs of record progress, and validate integration readiness.

Horizontal and Vertical Integration

LYNXTM can model interfaces between tactical, operational, and strategic levels. Enterprise-level assessments can enable optimal mix decisions between procured systems and managed services as well as reduce risk for operational integration and deployment. The tool's documented internal interfaces enable rapid tailoring for any operational-level C2 architecture. Additionally, individual missions can be daisy-chained across multiple mission areas to represent an entire enterprise.

How It Works

LYNXTM emulates future complex C2 concepts using flexible program interfaces to link system functions to allow for best-of-breed products selection. This approach allows users to employ commercially available applications, such as automated enterprise planning, big data analytics, C2 interfaces, and software-defined networking. Functions include resource scheduling, mission optimization, C2, and real-time mission monitoring.

LYNXTM is architected for any mission domain where any number of users need to plan and schedule a diverse set of assets, whether owned and operated or externally accessed (e.g., commercial or Allied).

The tool fosters modeling of a service manager for managing, architecting, and controlling an integrated enterprise of legacy systems with new capabilities.
