Capacity Selector Valve (CSV) Calculator (Shooter Tablet) Redefining the Carrier Flight Deck
Provide an automated tool to accurately and quickly determine the appropriate aircraft carrier catapult CSV setting required to safely launch aircraft.
SSI recently delivered a tablet computer‐based Catapult Capacity Selector Value (CSV) Calculator system to replace the current manual calculation process used by the Shooter station on Navy aircraft carriers.
A critical component of the catapult system is the Capacity Selector Valve (CSV). SSI designed and developed an automated tool to perform a series of calculations prior to each launch to determine the correct CSV setting for each launch. Launch calculations are performed in a very short window of time (less than 1 minute) and must be accurate to ensure a safe launch without damage to the catapult, aircraft, or pilot.
SSI provided technical leadership and support for: Systems Engineering, Requirements Definition, Hardware Selection, High Level Software Design and Test Planning. Additionally, our team provided oversight of cyber security system design and implementation.
The Shooter Tablet provides automated decision aids for the catapult officer to improve the efficiency of the launch process while maintaining safety, and minimizing catapult/aircraft stress through calculated CSV launch settings.

Pushing innovation for mobile solutions
Our elite teams build apps, responsive websites, bots—any digital product that interacts with users—for the world’s leading companies. We cultivate expertise in every stage of product creation, resulting in extraordinary digital experiences.
The Ocean County Department of Parks and Recreation has unveiled a free app for Apple and Google users that officials hope will make its 27 parks and recreational activities more accessible to the public.
“With parks from Point Pleasant Beach all the way down to Tuckerton, you are sure to find an adventure near you with the help of downloading the app,” said Ocean County Freeholder Director Virginia E. Haines, who also chairs the department on the Board of Freeholders. “This will make accessing park information much easier for our residents and visitors.”

Innovative distributed approach for the Australian Navy
SSI delivered a radio communications control solution to the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) for their ANZAC Class‐Frigates. SSI’s software introduced a new state‐of‐the‐art paradigm for the control and management of the RAN’s ANZAC‐class shipboard radio communications systems, delivering dramatic improvements in mission flexibility and capability. The contract was awarded to SSI in support of a communications modernization contract by Leonardo MW Ltd., a UK based Prime Contractor.
Under this contract, SSI provided communications control software to be installed in the main communications control computer integrating with a technologically advanced Radio Frequency Distribution System (RFD) to provide the capability to adjust the multi‐band, multi‐mode radio communications configuration in real‐time in support of military, humanitarian and other Government and Defense related missions. The features of the solution provide the Australian Navy with a higher performing communications capability which is required to meet expanding operational needs. The solution provides improved and intuitive communication management between ships, aircraft, troops, first responders, emergency personnel, other agencies and allied nations to coordinate the information and resources necessary in any situation. The control software operates in coordination with an RF Distribution System to deliver a command and control dashboard to the Royal Australian Navy. “This solution leverages the latest designs to provide communications operators the control to immediately adapt system capability for any mix of emerging needs,” said Emil Kaunitz, President of SSI. “ The control software also allows RAN to quickly and affordably upgrade their communications systems to address future mission needs and assure continued interoperability through the life‐cycle. While designed specifically for these frigates to increase and improve radio operations, our software is modular and easily modified so that the same capability can be utilized across an entire Navy fleet with different ship classes and different radio system configurations.” Mr. Kaunitz said.
