SBG has the capability to develop highly specialized technical studies. At the request of Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), SBG developed a study and report which served to explore solutions to fielding new wireless local area network capabilities on board vessels sooner.  A significant part of the report was devoted to identifying existing wireless networks onboard Navy vessels and highlighting emerging candidate WLAN technologies and networks for use aboard U.S. Navy Ships as a possible path toward fielding systems quickly.  At the request of PEO SHIPS, the recommendations were focused on Damage Control (DC) and Maritime Interdiction Operations (MIO) as target applications. The study provided recommendations that could also contribute to future wireless applications for the combat system and provided recommendations on ways in which Navy DDG class vessels could benefit from consolidation of multiple Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) and other communications initiatives.

As the technical representatives for the Space Domain, SBG supports all major efforts, working groups and strike teams involved with Naval Open Architecture. The team researched, outlined, developed and reviewed major sections of the Concept of Operations and Requirements Document for the OA Enterprise Repository. Document review and development was also provided to the OA/FORCEnet Experimentation team, in addition to extensive planning and preparations to include TACSAT and VMOC experimentation in FY07. The team supported the Software Reuse strike team by completing OA assessments with MUOS and several vendor companies. The Space domain also participated in all OAET initiatives, including continual refinement of the OAAT, the development of OA contract guidance for program managers, and the creation of the OA Roadmap.

SBG Technology Solutions, Inc. supports research and development of major ACAT II weapon systems like the Geodetic/Geophysical Satellite (GEOSAT) Follow-On Two (GFO-2) for PEO Command, Control, Communications and Computers and Intelligence (PEO C4I) systems command.
.
The GFO-2 system is a space-based sensor to measure ocean surface topography (sea surface height) and then to communicate that information to a ground segment for processing and timely dissemination to US Naval forces. This capability supports joint warfighter Battlespace Awareness by providing a timely, integrated, persistent, and credible data source. Information derived from this space-based sensing capability will provide critical inputs to operational ocean models used for Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), Mine Warfare (MIW), and Naval Special Warfare (NSW) mission planning, tactical decision aids, and sensor/weapon performance prediction.
.
SBG Technology Solutions, Inc. is partnered with Accenture and provides program and acquisition management support services to ensure effective program execution while maintaining cost, schedule, and technical/performance.

As a prime contractor, SBG currently provides technical and management support to the Technical Project Officer (TPO) in PEO IWS 4.0 for Surface and Electronic Warfare Systems Technology International Information and Data Exchange Agreements (IEA and DEA) execution including, but not limited to, various Land Attack Gun Systems and Technologies, Weapon Systems configurations and interfaces, and other Gun and Missile-related programs that are pertinent to the PEO IWS community. Efforts include, but are not limited to, monitoring agreements, planning exchange opportunities, documenting proceedings, reporting status on agreements and exchanges, supporting and coordinating international visits and meetings, developing milestones to obtain the maximum value from the exchange agreements and establishing metrics which measure this effort, preparing TPO presentations, revising agreements, and maintaining liaison with appropriate supporting organizations to include NAVSEA, NAVAIR SPAWAR, OPNAV and the Navy International Programs Office (NIPO). Additionally, SBG works closely with PEO IWS major programs in identifying potential international cooperative projects resulting from exchange activity held under the various international exchange agreements.

As a subcontractor to Alion Science and Technology (formerly Anteon), SBG currently provides Executive Assistant Administrative Support Personnel to PEO Ships (PMS 400F Major Program Manager for modernization on surface combatants at the Naval Sea Systems Command). This effort provides support and coordination of all PMS 400F office operations, including the management of records, schedules and correspondence. SBG personnel support long-term planning, deliverable tracking, task management and provide program management assistance. Administratively, SBG also supports the program office with high level program briefings, graphics work, visual presentations and word processing support, as assigned. SBG personnel interface with the PEO Ships front office, other Major Program Managers throughout NAVSEA, SPAWAR, NAVAIR, OPNAV, ASN RDA, and various other customers on behalf of PMS 400F.

SBG provides PEO Space Systems with program management, and engineering, analytical and technical services support possessing experience with the MUOS Program, the Navy’s ForceNet Program, the Global Information Grid, Open Architecture software/hardware issues and Operational Experience across traditional naval warfare and space domains to provide technical analysis, implementation collaboration and meeting liaison in support of PEO IWS, MUOS, ForceNet, Open Architecture, NESI, and Global Information Grid Navy-wide Enterprise Team initiatives.
