The primary objective of this report is to conduct an assessment that will; Identify world benchmarks for the Modular “Plug and Play” Equipment concept; Outline risks and possible mitigations associated with the concept; Present technology readiness levels for the concept; and Consider the applicability to the various environments within the CF. With respect to the various technologies involved in instituting such a concept, the assessment should address technology readiness levels (TRL) for three distinct time frames – 2010, 2020 and 2030. The scope of this document is limited to a review of the modular capabilities for the SCSC. It does not address modular construction or other engineering issues associated with the SCSC except in cases where such issues overlap with the modular capabilities. Most of the material used in this report was from the open-source literature and interviews with subject matter experts. The material was aggregated and used to make assertions and draw conclusions, which are presented herein.
