Abstract ( 15 )
With the development of artificial intelligence, more and more complex and intelligent systems appear constantly. Traditional theories and methods of system science and system engineering are no longer suitable for the need of the situation. System of systems(SoS) has thus come into being. This paper reviews the concepts and characteristics of SoS, introduces its history and current research status, and argues that the research focus in this field should be intelligent complex system of systems(ICSoS) with higher complexity and intelligence. The paper also describes the concept, characteristic, modelling, emergence and application around ICSoS. On this basis, this paper suggests that future research directions should focus on modeling, intelligent emergence and pinning control of ICSoS.

Abstract ( 353 )
System-of-systems (SoS) contribution ratio evaluation is an important measure to promote the development and application of equipment system-of-systematization. At present, the research of SoS contribution ratio (SoSCR) mainly focuses on the stage of equipment project demonstration. There are some problems such as difficulty to find the combat SoS comprising the equipment system from bottom up, atypical and inaccurate SoSs, so it is urgent to strengthen the research of SoSCR from top down in the stage of program planning. Based on the thought of equipment life cycle management dominated by SoSCR, this paper puts forward a five-step evaluation method, including combat concept traction, capability demand leading, value orientation accounting, mission means matching, and capability contribution evaluation. The SoSCR of the project is evaluated according to the satisfaction degree of the equipment planning project to the SoS capability gap, and an SoSCR allocation model is constructed. In this paper, the evaluation of SoSCR is pushed forward to the program planning stage, which can strengthen the top-level design and overall guidance of equipment life cycle management, and overcome shortcomings of current research on decentralized and fragmented SOSCR.

Abstract ( 6 )
Marine data, as one of the important tools of ocean exploitation and utilization, scatter in various departments in our country, such as marine departments, scientific research institutions and other relevant enterprises. These data cannot be shared and value-added effectively, thus marine data islands are formed. This paper analyzes the fundamental reason for the marine data islands problem, then proposes a kind of marine data resource sharing application model based on block chain technology, in which the consensus mechanism of block nodes as well as the storage mode of marine data on the block chain are improved. Eventually, a marine data resource sharing platform is built to reach the goal of data sharing and value-added distribution.

Abstract ( 11 )
Existing ship information platform is limited by its equipment interface and data standard, and the development of civil ship information platform is relatively slow. In the development process of intelligent ship, deficiency of traditional ship information platform makes it more difficult to support the analysis task of ship in complex working conditions. This paper proposes a ship information platform based on an event-driven architecture design, and starts with modeling event flow around function modules according to the closed loop of ‘perception-cognition-decision-control’, which improves the processing efficiency of random and uncertain events and reduces the coupling degree of the system. Finally, an information platform is implemented to improve task processing capacity and reduce hardware resource requirements.

Abstract ( 11 )
With the development trend of intelligent ship and shipping as well as accumulation of ship big data, it is urgent to build a special model of navigation economic analysis through data-driven means to solve the problem of energy consumption evaluation and optimization and maximize ship energy efficiency. In this paper, combined with the relationship between ship's sailing conditions and main engine's fuel consumption characteristics, and considering the factors of draft and relative wind speed, K-means clustering analysis method is used to realize the division of different sailing conditions of the influencing factors of fuel consumption. The historical data of a VLCC are used to verify the actual application. Based on the data of ship's voyage loading and external environment weather conditions, the classification analysis of navigation conditions and the determination of influencing factor parameter interval under each working condition are realized, which provides a more refined analysis basis for the construction of matching model of marine main engine fuel consumption by different working conditions.

Abstract ( 10 )
With shift of focus from traditional offshore waters defence to open seas protection, the formation command information system of the maritime combat forces has changed fundamentally, reflecting more behavioral characteristics of an architecture than a system. This paper studies and analyzes five behavioral characteristics of the command information architecture of maritime composite formation, namely, independence of component units, uncertainty of architecture patterns evolution, variability of command and information process, emergent properties of components and whole architecture, and distributivity of deployment zones. In a word, as a typical example, the command information architecture of maritime composite formation should be taken as an architecture instead of a system in terms of its design, deployment, operation and management.

Amphibious ship loading is the basic guarantee of amphibious operation. Loading scheme directly affects the efficiency of amphibious force delivery and even affects the process and success of amphibious operation. To optimize the embarkation for amphibious transport ships, we establish descriptive models for transport ships loading space and loading objects. Then we apply graph theory introduce the concept of gatehead, make optimal gateheads selection rules, and set up embarkation scheme optimization objectives and constraint conditions. Finally, we use genetic algorithm to work out the embarkation scheme optimization models which realize the embarkation scheme optimization objectives.

Abstract ( 9 )
A requirement analysis process characterized by first whole qualitative analysis then separate quantitative analysis is proposed. Several typical operational concepts are set up and military key requirements are defined by them. Through using the DoDAF framework to analyze the operational concepts, equipment operational capabilities requirements are obtained. The use case method is incorporated and the capabilities are separated into several use case teams. Each use case defines a few functional scenes, by which the missions and operational environments are covered and from which the tactical and technical performance requirements are all drawn. By means of the tracing relativity between requirements and scenes, an agile requirement change process for responding to customers and technical staff demands is proposed. A hypothetical transport helicopter is taken as an example to interpret the process.

Abstract ( 29 )
This paper proposes a multi-architecture modeling method to implement model-based systems engineering (MBSE). The meta-meta model based on the multi-architecture modeling method constructs the domain-specific modeling language in Capella. The Arcadia modeling method is adopted as the modeling specification. At the same time, the traceability relationship between models is established based on the architecture-driven method. A complete system engineering driven process based on model is formed. The aircraft entertainment system is used as a case to build a model, and the two methods of Capella modeling and multi-architecture modeling are compared, and the efficiency and effectiveness of the two methods are compared. The results show that the multi-architecture modeling method has modeling efficiency and strong scalability, which brings a solution for the integration of different MBSE modeling languages and modeling methods.

Abstract ( 13 )
Aviation airborne software airworthiness certification is an important means to verify that the safety of software meets flight requirements. The certification standard DO-178C is a standard requirement that aviation enterprise software design must follow. However, in the field of software management there is an important competence maturity integration model standard, called CMMI/GJB5000A. After a comparative analysis of DO-178C and GJB5000A, it is concluded that the airborne software airworthiness certification is insufficient in the sense of software development process management. To meet the gap it is proposed that enterprises need to strengthen project monitoring, process measurement, analysis and risk management requirements. In accordance with the formal requirements of DO-178C, a reference improvement plan is given.

Abstract ( 9 )
At present, police have only a single means of evidence collection in the process of law enforcement and can neither analyze and deal with evidence effectively in real time nor provide effective support for investigation and arrest of law enforcement tasks. To solve these problems, we propose a single police law enforcement system based on rights protection law enforcement tasks. We adopt network architecture, integrate advanced forensic equipment and transmission equipment and apply deep learning algorithm to the evidence processing system to construct a systematic single police law enforcement system based on single police evidence collection and multiple police cooperative evidence collection. We use system engineering method to design the system and the operation process. In the design process, we put forward key technologies such as information integration, command assistant decision making and feature extraction.
