The Reduced Ship's Crew by Virtual Presence Advanced Technology Demonstration was a 3-year program (1999-2001) to show the feasibility of employing wireless sensors on naval ships. Environmental, structural, personnel, and machinery sensors were demonstrated. This paper describes the RSVP architecture, highlighting the aspects of the architecture that contribute to the system's reliability and survivability. It also describes the demonstrations that were performed and their results.
