Sandia's Jess 7.1a3 rule engine selected by Lockheed Martin for Navy's DDG 1000 destroyer ship

It's great to see public announcements like this, as it helps demonstrate that there is real value to using and deploying expert systems - far too many interesting projects are kept secret. Congratulations Ernest.

"Sandia is a National Nuclear Security Administration laboratory.

The Navy’s DDG 1000 is a multi-mission, maritime fleet of destroyer ships. It includes a number of advanced technologies and features, including an integrated power system, dual band radar, integrated undersea warfare system, and advanced gun system. Among other intended uses, Jess will help the DDG 1000 ship domain controller with its alarm management function and reasoning about ship system states for safe operation."
